* ''LookToTheWest:'' This happens so often, and so nonchalantly, during the background of various revolutionary leaders it is almost a running gag. ''Look To The Burning House Where Your Family Used To Live.'' It's also not only lampshaded in Part 71's title -- ''For Want Of A Burned House'' -- but played with. If that house in Part 71 had been burnt down like so many others, Pablo Sanchez would have died as a boy hiding in a cupboard and the world would have been spared a tremendous amount of misery.

** The real question is how the hell did they even find the village in the intro? It's not like there's all that many people in it, there's like 10 people tops. I'd say this is a somewhat averted variation on TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive given the unliklihood of the Serdian army stumbling across the village or even knowing of it's existence.
