Production Notes


  • More of Doc Yewll's past is revealed.
  • The concept of Indogenes being altered to appear human was introduced in I Just Wasn't Made for These Times. However, Nicolette appeared to be much more than an assassin, and more importantly, was fully aware of her Indogene nature.
  • Amanda's assistant in this episode is a female human, but for the past several episodes has been a female Castithan. The Castithan may have left the job to support Datak's mayoral run, although it's possible it was just her day off.
  • Despite it being his sister's "big day," Quentin McCawley didn't come back to town to attend her wedding.


  • In spite of the name, the bride didn't actually wear black. The name seems to be taken from the 1968 French film of the same name (Fr:La Mariée était en noir).
