MLM List of Questions to Answer


Recommended Posts

This is a list started from at least 3 threads. Please everyone, help me with these questions by adding more, and especially help if I have asked them incorrectly. Then of course help with the answers.

I for one am going to have to watch the show again and watch out for these things.

1. What episode was "coyote" or "trickster" mentioned, and why?

2. What episode was "gargoyles" mentioned, and the coyote appeared, and why?

3. When did the "prayer stick" originally turn up, and did it appear again, and why? Was it in "A Single Blade of Grass?"

4. Who is the mysterious caller in season 2, after the Polaroid man was killed in episode 1? The Mikado Killer?

5. Tamra Caffrey: maternal or paternal half-sister?

ad 2: I think I am responsible for that one. While talking about the coyote being mentioned I talked about a 'Gargoyles' episode that I think featured the trickster. Eliza Maza´s father I think impersonated him.

So this was not about gargoyles in the millennium series

Sorry.

That got me thinking, Alkmaion, because (a) I couldn't remember anything about Emma's mother, and (b) Emma's father, as he was portrayed later, didn't seem the type to either "play away" or fail to acknowledge any illegitimate child. So, I went looking:

The episode summary http://millennium-thisiswhoweare.net/guide/episode.php?mlm_code=309 says it's Emma's half-sister, but from the transcript it seems the connection could have been more distant than that:

FRANK: They're going to say you failed to mention her in your Academy interview. When you were asked about family, any history of felony convictions, you were less than candid.
HOLLIS: I didn't know about her. Not until two years ago when my cousin died. No–one was supposed to ever find out. An illegitimate child isn't exactly something that traditionally appears in family photo albums.

That doesn't mean that Tamra wasn't Emma's half-sister, of course. Her mother could have had an affair, got pregnant, went to her cousin, had the baby there, and left Tamra behind for the cousin to raise. That wouldn't be unusual - the shame of illegitimacy has always been the mother's rather than the father's.

Quite probably, the episode summary was the brief blurb published by Fox, but taken from the outlines provided by the producers as they sketched out their plans for the season. Of course, season 3 was very muddled to begin with, and it could well be that those outlines changed considerably; especially as episode 4, "Closure", had already featured the murder of Emma's sister, Melissa. So, having a murdered sister, then, just a few episodes later, having a previously unknown illegitimate half-sister who was a junkie, and at risk from adulterated (not a pun!) drugs, would be stretching credulity a bit too far.

But, what do we really know about Emma? Her profile on the database website isn't very informative.

Good question, Alkmaion. It's certainly got me thinking.

And good topic, Earthnut.

Well, there is one thing mentioned much later in season 3 about the mother. When Emma is asked if her mother should be contacted because of the deteriogating state of her father, she mentions that the woman walked out of their lifes 20(I think) years ago, hinting about some bad blood between her and her mother.

b) About Emma´s father, yeah, I think you are right.

I just rewatched the episode, and, yes, Tamra is never actually called a sister. A more distant relative seems likely. Paternal I´d say, considering the bad blood between her mother and Emma.

You guys are awesome with your research and memories. Thank you.

Any more questions?

Anyone have a reply about the mysterious caller?

I'm thinking on it. I think it was something they were doing , maybe to introduce a new villain, but dropped it. If it wasn't Polaroid, or Lucy, then I can't think of another recurring villain that it could be.

Maybe it was the angel effect, someone or something communicating from beyond the earthly veil. I'll have to watch that episode and the ones before and after again, to get context. :)

I wish I knew how that video game Jordan had in season 3 got the virus in it. Did someone switch it? It was tailor made for Frank. SO how did she get it, and who would have known she'd play it at the FBI?
