Trivia

During Loeb's debrief at the beginning of the episode, Broyles asks him what "Other agents [are] on the operation." Loeb answers "Coscarelli and Scrimm". Don Coscarelli wrote/directed the "Phantasm" horror movies series, starring Angus Scrimm as the main villain. See more »

Goofs

The prison in Frankfurt is announced as "Wissenschaft Prison" in the titles. This is a literal translation of "Science Prison". The word "Wissenschaft", however, can't be used like that at all, not even in a German-English compound. The title should either read "Wissenschaftsgefaengnis" or "Science Prison". See more »

Quotes

Phillip Broyles: I'm hoping you can help. The man lying in that room is not just a colleague. He's a friend.
Dr. Walter Bishop: I see. Do you have any mints?

Getting better!
12 November 2008 | by hunain-naseerSee all my reviews

A good episode IMO, the show is getting better, I was hooked from the first episode, but after three episodes, it started to go down hill, the same repetitive stuff, less attention to the big story and more like an episodic show, but in this episode I felt like its building up, like the silence before a storm, the saying (from the movie The Prestige) "the secret impresses nobody, its what you use it for.." If they told us the big story just like that, it wouldn't be that intriguing, but giving us bits to work on makes it really interesting! I love the show and I hope it stays long enough to tell the tale to the full!
