A flashback is an interjected scene that takes the narrative back in time from the current point the story has reached. Flashbacks are often used to recount events that happened before the story's primary sequence of events to fill in crucial backstory. They are used to create suspense in a story, develop a character or structuring the narration. The following is a list of flashbacks to have occurred in the original series:
