Event Chronology

Episode Connections

  • Eloise was first described in "Secret Garden" as being in a cult and being its leader.
  • Henry first showed Jacinda the results that prove he is Lucy's father in "The Guardian", and he was shown these results by Nick in "Chosen".
  • Lucy insisted to Henry in "Hyperion Heights" that everything in his book really happened.
  • Jacinda wonders how she could magically forget that Henry is Lucy's father, an event that began to take place at the end of "The Eighth Witch" when the Dark Curse was cast.

  • Cinderella was first seen in her blue dress in "Hyperion Heights".
  • Lucy gave Henry a piece of the glass slipper in "The Garden of Forking Paths".
  • Sabine mentioned in "Breadcrumbs" that she hired Drew to work for her food truck.
  • Drew is being interrogated at the police station after being arrested by Rogers in "The Guardian". In the same episode, he told him about Mr. Samdi's role in Nick's death and also steered him into taking a closer look at the unusual manner in how Nick died.
  • Drew and Rogers discuss Nick's murder, which happened in "Chosen". Also mentioned by Drew is Nick's hunting of witches, which began in "Secret Garden".

  • Eloise met Margot in a flashback during "Secret Garden".

  • The origin of the swan keychain was revealed in "Tallahassee".
  • The origin of the chipped cup was explored in "Skin Deep".
  • Lucy mentions the time Jacinda tried to escape to Bainbridge Island with her, an event that happened in "Hyperion Heights".
  • Tilly moved into Rogers' home at the end of "The Girl in the Tower".

Props Notes

Set Dressing

  • Many of the photographs on Henry's boards are taken from the filming of previous episodes:
    • The photograph of Black Beard[19] is taken from a behind the scenes photograph of actor Charles Mesure from the Season Four episode "Fall".[20]
    • The photograph of Jacinda[21] is from the filming of "Greenbacks";[22] she is wearing the same top and shirt.
    • The photographs of Lucy[21] seems to be from the filming of "Hyperion Heights";[27] her denim jacket is the same, but her undergarment is different.
    • The photograph of Sabine[21] is taken from a deleted scene from "The Garden of Forking Paths", where Rogers and Sabine are on a bench.[28] Notice the purse strap over her left shoulder and her yellow sweater.[21]
    • The photograph of Kelly[29] is a behind the scenes picture from "The Eighth Witch",[30] which can easily be seen from the workout clothes Kelly is wearing.
    • The photograph of Mr. Samdi[29] seems to be a behind the scenes picture from "The Girl in the Tower";[31] his shirt and sweater is the same, although his jacket is different.
    • The photograph of Nick[29] is a behind the scenes picture from "Chosen" or "The Guardian"; his shirt and jacket matches the outfit he wears when he attacks Kelly in the former and when he's at the police station in both episodes.[32]
    • The photograph of Ivy[33] is taken from the filming of a deleted scene with Ivy and her mother from "Hyperion Heights",[34] which is called "Ground Breaking" and is available on the Blu-ray/DVD.
    • The photograph of Anastasia[33] is from the filming of "Sisterhood", as seen from her black coat.[35]
    • The photograph of Rogers[33] is the same as the one from his file at the police station in "One Little Tear".[36] The photo itself is from the filming of the scene with Henry and Rogers at the harbor in "Eloise Gardener",[37] as seen from the similar background colors.
    • The photograph of Weaver[33] is from the filming of "Eloise Gardener",[38] where he is wearing the same dark jacket and blue shirt, although he does not wear the sunglasses.
    • The photograph of Eloise Gardener[39] is the same as the one from the case file at the police station in "Knightfall".[40]
    • The photograph of Victoria Belfrey on the "witch cult" board[39] is the same as the one in her file at the police station in "One Little Tear",[41] itself taken from the filming of "Hyperion Heights".[42]
    • The first[39] and second[43] photograph of the Perp are the same as the photos from his file in "One Little Tear",[44] which are modified versions of the photos from his mughshot pedigree from "Wake Up Call".[45]
      • Ironically, the third photo[43] is the same as one of the photos from "Wake Up Call".
    • The photograph of Hilda Braeburn[43] is the same as the photo from the case file at the police station in "Knightfall",[46] which is taken from a promotional photograph of actress Chilton Crane from "A Taste of the Heights".[47] Notice how the white apron Hilda wore in "A Taste of the Heights" has been CGIed away.
    • The photograph of a murdered Doctor Sage[43] is the same as the one in the police files from "A Taste of the Heights"[48] and "Knightfall"[40]
      • Her portrait photo[39] is most likely from the filming of "Secret Garden", since that's the only episode where she appears; however, although her white coat is the same, she is wearing a different sweater.[49]
    • Roni's second photo[23] is from the filming of the scene where she's in the Community Gardens in "The Garden of Forking Paths"; she is wearing the same top and necklace and has her jacket, which she carries in the scene, slung over her shoulder.[50]
  • On one of Henry's bulletin boards, Roni is also listed under the name "Rani".[21] "Rani" is Sanskrit for "queen".[51]
  • The newspaper article about Victoria Belfrey's death from "A Taste of the Heights"[52] is pinned to Henry's board.[21] This can be seen more clearly in the next episode, "Is This Henry Mills?".[53]
    • Another newspaper article pinned to the board is called "Local teens to volunteer time".[54] Curiously, the headline does not match the content; it is about a group of students who became stranded on a mountain.
      • The article is based on two real world articles. The first four paragraphs are adapted from an article from February 2014, published in the Maine newspapers The Times Records,[55] and the Sun Journal.[56] The last two paragraphs are a word-by-word rendering of an article published by the Canadian newspaper Vancouver Sun in December 2013.[57]
      • This is a comparison of the first four paragraphs (the headline from The Times Record is used here; the wording for the headline of the Sun Journal version is slightly different), with the final two paragraphs from the other article (which is called "2 fathers, group of 8 kids rescued after unplanned night on mountain near Rossland") at the end:

Group of Boy Scouts
rescued from Black Cap

Authorities say three Boy
Scouts
and two of their adult
leaders became stranded on the
side of Black Cap Mountain in
Eddington and were rescued by
a group of game wardens, firefight-
ers and professional climbers.
The Warden Service says that
four climbers lowered the three boys
and two adults down the moun-

they became stranded Saturday
night when they ventured off a
trail.
The two Scout leaders went to
find the boys after they didn't
return from a hike, but they also
became stranded and called 911
around 7:30 p.m.
After the Scouts were found
by the game wardens, the profes-
sional climbers lowered them to
firefighters waiting at the bottom
of the mountain. The Scouts but [sic]
did not require treatment for any-
thing except being cold.

Authorities say six nature study
students and three of their adult

The Ranger Service says that
four climbers lowered the six boys

The overnight rescue of two
fathers and a group of eight kids
from the backcountry of a ski
resort in the West Kootenays
should be a warning to others to
stay in bounds unless they have a
GPS tracking device, a search and
rescue expert says.

  • Another article clipping[54] is adapted from a real article published in The News Tribune,[58] a daily newspaper in Tacoma, Washington, in November 2017, a few months before the episode was filmed. Note that some of the text is off-screen; a few words from the missing contents are glimpsed in the newspaper that Sabine picks up in "A Taste of the Heights"[52] and are set in fuchsia:
