The Dying of the Light
"The Dying of the Light" is the sixth episode of the non-canonical The Goliath Chronicles, and the 71st televised episode of the series.
"Self-knowledge is a rare and sustaining prize, hard-won and elusive. The greatest warriors of those who knows when to ask for help. Pride can blind a man or gargoyle, denying him the power of living the truth. In these difficult times, I fear for Hudson. For though he is strong, he is also uncommonly proud."
A scene from this episode was adapted into "Bash". As in this episode, Jeffrey Robbins describes Hudson as having a slight smell of "old leather and concrete" about him. Greg Weisman said that the particular scene was not one of his, but as it was a fan-favorite he felt that "a nod to one of the times they got things right was a nice tribute to all the hard work that the TGC crew put in, with little thanks or reward." 
The episode's title is a reference to a Dylan Thomas poem, "Do not go gentle into that good night." 
Eric Lewald was story editor for X-Men: The Animated Series (1992-1997). The plot of a season two episode, "Beauty and the Beast", of that series had the Friends of Humanity, a mutant hating group analogus to the Quarrymen, attacking a hospital where the Beast is treating his blind friend.
