* The following from Star on the Spoiler Files:
The federal prosecutor on trial is actually an old friend of John
Doggett. He of course denies killing his wife. As for the supernatural
element - stop reading now if you don't want to know - Martin Wells is
moving backward in time. Sort of like Merlin from Sword in the Stone.
Today is Thursday, tomorrow for him would be Wednesday, etc. He doesn't
remember anything that to everyone else happened previously because he
hasn't lived it yet. Martin is very interested in discussing this with
I'm pretty sure the episode follows Martin's time line. Meaning we
experience the days backwards like he does. It sounds great and you can
just image how the inmates feel about having the very prosecutor who put
them away in the same prison with them.
BTW, for anyone who hasn't seen/read The Shining, the title "Redrum"
comes from the Steven King novel. When the little boy is temporarily
possessed, he sees redruM in the mirror and says it over and over again.
As we all know "redruM" backwards is "Murder."
