EPISODE 47
Highslide JS
According to the story Jacques relates about the skull discovered behind the painting of Etian DesMondes, Jacques went to dinner while the man was hung by his jaw to slowly die. It is assumed that Jacques refers to actual events.
The story of the skull is never fully revealed, nor is the significance of its discovery explained.
Jean Paul thinks the skull might be a clue as to how to defeat Jacques, but does not elaborate on this.
Highslide JS
The fuzzy cottonlike substance that surrounded the skull in its niche in the wall is missing in this episode.
 
EPISODE 48
Jean Paul asks Raxl where the skull is and Raxl tells him he left it in the crypt with Quito. He promptly asks what Raxl did with it, despite having just found out that it is in the crypt.

Highslide JS
The fuzzy cotton that surrounded the skull in episode 46 is now back
Speaking of the skull, it’s significance is never determined, and after the next episode it is never even mentioned again
As Jean Paul crosses in front of the cryo capsule a boom mike shadow can be seen on his head.
The Reverend agrees to take part in the séance if Jean Paul will listen to his terms. Jean Paul tells him that there are NO terms when a soul is at stake, and the Reverend says that these are his terms as well. Thus, Rev. Dawson is essentially saying that his terms are no terms.
This episode follows shortly after the previous one, which is set in the afternoon, yet Holly is eating breakfast when Jean Paul enters her room.
   
EPISODE 49
The whirlpool in the channel between Maljardin and the mainaldn has a time of three minutes between cycles.
Highslide JS
The cryonics capsule now has two knobs on the front of it, when before it had none.
With this episode the death count on Maljardin rises to four: Erica and her baby in episode one, Dr. Menkin in episode five and now Vangie.
 
EPISODE 50
This episode establishes that there is some kind of burial ground on Maljardin, but its location is never specified.
Highslide JS
The basket for the rabbit is now in Holly’s room. The last time it was seen, Jean Paul had it in his room, as he was looking after the rabbit. No explanation is given as to why it has been moved.
Also, Raxl and Quito continue to search for the rabbit, yet it was clearly in Jean Paul’s possession the last time it was seen, and no one has commented that it has disappeared
This is the first episode to be written by James Elward.

The sketch Tim drew of Erica before she died is now different from the one seen in episode 2 (image 1). It looks like Tudi Wiggins, who plays Erica in later episodes
(image 2).

When Jean Paul goes to sit at the séance table, it is now covered in a green cloth, whereas earlier in the episode it was a glass tabletop. There is no reason for the table to be covered, so this is presumably to make it easier for the pearl to “move” across the table after Jean Paul asks for a sign of Erica’s presence.
As Jean Paul is talking by the cryo capsule, the shadow of someone moving can be seen in front of it.
