  1. Although this encounter is not depicted onscreen, this was planned to be recounted in flashback had the show been renewed for a second season.[1]
  2. Contrary to what is read from the fictional National Geographic Article, mitochondrial Eve is not the "most recent common ancestor" of humanity. That person perhaps lived 90,000 years later, and virtually all breeding persons living more than 60,000 years before the present (of whom mitochondrial Eve is merely one) were common ancestors of all humanity.
