This episode inspired a lot of discussion on the messageboards due to the nature of its ending. It made many fans question if there was something more to the town of Jefferton or more to the character of The Mayor. Was the show an allegory to Hell or Purgatory (Jefferton) and The Mayor was some sort of devil/evil character?


  • The original title for the episode was Murder-suicide
