Memorable quotes Edit

- Barnabas: Are you so bored with your spells and incantations that you point a gun at me...?

Background information and notes Edit
- This episode was recorded out of broadcast sequence. The previous episode to be recorded was 544.
- Although the voice of Eric Lang is heard here for the final time on the tape recorder in the reprise from the previous episode, the character made his final appearance, as a ghost, in 543.
- This is the first time Louis Edmonds provides the opening narration, and is only the fourth time it has been by male voice.
- Nicholas says and seems to believe that Angelique was born during the year 1774 in Martinique. In 1140, it is revealed that she was alive in the year 1692. Either he is unaware of her existence in that year or just claiming her second reincarnated life starting as that point. She does not tell him he is wrong but she has other concerns at the moment and maybe wants him to think that is the year she was born in, when it probably is not.
- INTERNAL MONOLOGUE: Cassandra: Killing Adam (reprise) / What a fool I am.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit
