innocence for what it is:
The rarest thing in the Universe,
and the most precious."
The Finder of The Way
|Episode 018 (1x18)|
Rev Bem receices a cry for help from his old friend Thaddeus Blake: the Hajira on Serendipity are threatened by slave traders.
- Harper and Trance don't appear in the whole episode.
- The "Finder of the Way" was Fleshrender, a Magog who founded the religious order of The Way.
- Refers to an English proverb from the early 16th century: "Every man for himself, and the devil take the hindmost..."
- The scene in which Szebos (the right hand of Ursari) is impaled by a spear is an alusion by Allan Eastman to a similar scene in "Apocalypse Now".
- Blakes comment to Dylan "You are the merciful hand" was intended to be a part of a longer discussion between Blake and Rev Bem about the biblical story about Abraham and Issac. (Source: Eldorado Drift)
