    Trivia (1)

    • This episode begins differently than any other episode of 'Amen.' There is a prologue scene in which Jackee's character is introduced when she goes to Ernie's law office to seek legal representation. After he agrees to take her case, the opening credits and theme song begin. Then, when the first scene of act one begins, the title of the episode appears.
