    • Title: "Babel"
      The episode's title takes its name from a story in the book of Genesis. After the flood, all humanity gathered in one place, determined not to be separated. They began to build a tower to reach the skies. When God came down to view the structure, he "confounded" everyone's speech. Effectively scattering humanity to different regions of the earth because they could no longer communicate with each other. The abandoned city and unfinished tower came to be known as Babel.
