    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (8)

      • Harrison refers to Sylvia as "Mrs. Forrester," but she and Clayton weren't married according to the first season because she was frequently referred to as "Ms. Van Buren."

      • The footage of the war machines being shown on the TV just seems a little too... professional. Certainly too close and steady of film from what I can imagine being people racing in an attempt not to be killed by heat rays.

      • On the TV Harrison is watching in 1953, we see General Mann climb into the jeep where he answers a few more questions standing inside the vehicle. But then in the next shot of Harrison watching, you can see the same footage of Mann's action in the store window's reflection.

      • When Kincaid falls out of the car, he has a gun in his left hand. But when the camera cuts back to a shot showing his left hand, it's suddenly gone.

      • It's made quite clear that Malzor has only 12 hours to remain in 1953. Not only does it seems like the time gap closes in no more than a few mere hours, but if he arrived at any time in the day, it would either be dark when he arrived or some point before he leaves, yet it remains daytime the entire stay.

      • It seems awfully convient that the time tunnel's exit route suddenly appears in a location mere seconds away from where Malzor is at that very moment. There's also the added fact that it closes differently from where it opened.

      • As stated many times in this episode, most notably by Mana, the aliens invasion force actually died from bacteria back in 1953. If that was true, then who were those aliens the Morthren were killing off in the season opener, "The Second Wave"? Weren't they the leftover invasion force from 1953?

      • A good number of mistakes in this episode: First of all, why is it that the aliens are all wearing the suits that the Advocacy wore in season 1 (and the Advocates were forced to wear them because of the radiation that they require was causing their metabolism to raise to high levels)? And why didn't Malzor speak to them in their native tongue? Finally, when one of the aliens is shot, you can see the actor's tennis shoes.

        Note: Malzor does actually commune with the aliens in their native tongue. Just before he enters the warehouse, he puts his hand out toward them and makes a whale-like noise. This is the same sound the Eternal makes when It "speaks." Apparently, their language was another one of Mancuso's rewrites.
