Fridge: The Legends Of Treasure Island

  • Jane's backstory is pretty dark in and of itself- she was kidnapped as a child, but her parents were happy to be rid of her. Instead she grew up with Long John Silver and his pirates. This seems like it was a decent deal, but then comes the second episode, where the characters run into a mist that makes you forget who you are while showing you the memories you've forgotten. Squire is chasing young kids off his land, Livesey is talking to the medical council, Jim is doing sailor work... all Played for Laughs. Then we get to Jane... who just keeps screaming, and when we go even further back, you see her with a slackjawed face as you hear an Evil Noblewoman's Laugh. Once you think of her backstory, suddenly you feel pretty bad for her.
