Synopsis Edit

There seems to be something wrong with the broadcast signal. Do you hear that? Radio signals come from the past and future, from KEVIN.

Plot Development Edit

  • Kevin: Kevin's origins are more thoroughly explored.
  • The Other Empty Desert: Cecil is apparently aware that Kevin has named his new settlement Desert Bluffs.

Proverb Edit

Candles lit, runes drawn upon the floor, sacrifice prepared. Everything is ready for the summoning. I begin the incantation: "Shakira, Shakira!"
— Cecil

Notes Edit

  • The voice of Kevin is Kevin R. Free.
  • A "triptych" is defined as three parts come together; a trilogy. In this episode there are three versions of Kevin: past, present (recent past), and future.
