    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Bobbi Parker case. Bobbi Parker was allegedly kidnapped by Randolph Dial on August 30, 1994, from the Oklahoma State Reformatory where her husband was a deputy warden. Dial had been allowed to work in the deputy warden's garage on pottery projects. Dial was captured on April 4, 2005, after more than 10 years as a fugitive when an America's Most Wanted tip panned out. Although Bobbi claimed that she was held captive by threats against her husband and children by an abusive Dial, there were skeptics from the beginning, noting she had been free to come and go within the towns they habituated. In October 2008, an Oklahoma judge ordered her to stand trial for aiding in a prisoner's escape. Randolph Dial died at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary on June 13, 2007, after struggling with heart disease and what was believed to be cancer. He was never charged with Parker's kidnapping.
