    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Past is Prolix:

        This episode's title is a play on the line "Whereof what's past is prologue; what to come, In yours and my discharge.", from The Tempest Act 2, Scene I by William Shakespeare. The phrase means that one's past influences and forms the context for one's actions in the present.
