** To be Fair, the fact that Jarod is kept in a cell in Season 4 has quite a lot to do with the fact that Lyle was now leading the centre.

** In "Once in a Blue Moon", we discover [[spoiler:that one of Jarod's few failed simulations was capturing a particularly intelligent and nasty serial killer... ''after'' he killed Raines' daughter. Jarod couldn't find the girl's body, either, the simulation being too traumatizing to complete.]] Raines never forgave him.

In "Flyer", he converses with a deaf woman in sign language. In "Curious Jarod", he speaks with a Hispanic woman in Spanish.
