Ah. The answer to that question goes back to my brief second season Vir essay. In summary: I took notice of Vir as a serious character in The Geometry of Shadows, much earlier than most of fandom generally acknowledges him. Standing his ground with Elric, his non-verbal suspicion of Refa (watch him closely in the background), his quiet nudging of Londo- all of those things suggested that there was much more to him than met the eye. And all the events that followed in the second season and beyond absolutely confirmed this belief.

As for what cemented the love? Lots of things. "If I leave, you'll be alone." "He will need me." His scene with Londo in The Long Night, which just hurts so much. Etc. Etc. He has precious few scenes over the course of the series compared to many of the other regulars, but what he does have tends to count in a big way.
