Notes from the Marshall Timeline

Having not seen Enik in the Lost City, the Marshalls begin to think he has, perhaps, managed to return to his own time; they think it is time to attempt to open the time-doorway themselves soon. (I wanted the Enikless "Album" episode to take place just before "The Hole" so that there would seem to be a reason that the Marshalls chose to return to the time-doorway chamber when they do in "The Hole".)

Didja Notice?

The actress playing Will and Holly's mother, Erica Hagen, is the same one who later plays the adult Holly in the episode "Elsewhen".

In the Lost City, the Marshalls hold a blue crystal which causes them to see the hallucination of Mrs. Marshall. In "Downstream", Collie says the blue crystals will make you sick; is this what he meant?

At 17:29 on the DVD, a stage light can be seen in the upper left of the jungle set. Also, you can see that one of the "tree trunk" set pieces has no top.

The tabletop of the matrix table set piece breaks in two when Rick throws it to the side. The colored rocks on the tabletop must be glued on because they don't scatter when he throws it.
