    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (8)

      • Why is Shalimar 'hiding' from Catherine by standing in the middle of a stairway up on the handrail?

      • It's not the first time this occurs, but why don't the GSA agents use guns? Instead, the GSA agents always engage in martial arts brawls (or use electric prods occasionally). If they used guns, or even tranquilizer darts, they could take out Emma, Brennan, and Adam pretty easily. There are a few episodes where they use guns ("Fool for Love", "Dancing on the Razor") but generally they don't.

      • Why does Eckhart lethally poison Berkley (as is implied) rather than either take him captive for his experimentation program (as he does for most of the other failure-of-the-weeks), or at least give him a knockout drug if he thinks his GSA agents will have trouble taking Berkley into custody?

      • Doesn't Aldus know what happens to folks who fail Eckhart? And Eckhart seems to despise the new mutants he employs, and it's hard to believe the pay is very good. Why is he so eager to join up?

      • It's not clear what the significance of the title is to the episode. There's a song title by that name, but typically if an episode uses such a song title, they make some kind of allusion to it in the script itself.

      • Why doesn't Berkley wear the anti-electrical protective clothing like Thorne wore in "Shock of the New"? It's no wonder Eckhart's men keep getting the snot beat out of them when they forget to take precautions they've already used...

      • One of Eckhart's thugs swings at Jesse while he is in his denser form. It's only after the guy swings that Jesse reverts back and gets sucker-punched. Shouldn't Eckhart's guys know by now not to swing at the super-hard Jesse, or is the guy just that good at predicting Jesse's moves?

      • Neither Emma or Shalimar manage to sense the invisible Catherine at close-range, even though we're told the invisiblity only applies to sight. Shouldn't the former's empathy or the latter's (apparently) enhanced senses of hearing and smell pick up on the girl? (And yes, Ferals have enhanced senses, as both Shalimar and the two soldier/ferals demonstrate in "Dark Star Rising.")

    • NOTES (1)

      • The reference to the "Hotel Infantino on Carmine Street" is an in-joke reference to famed comic book artist Carmine Infantino.
