Republic of Murdoch Edit

  • John is revealed to share his father's love of the arts. This makes his father suspicious that he may be gay, and Thomas gets Julia to talk with him, and it is clear he isn't gay, and John even gets in a fight to prove it to his father, who says he will accept him no matter what.

Murdoch and the Temple of Death Edit

The Local Option Edit

Bend It Like Brackenreid Edit

  • John learns from his Dad that "There's only one kind of Brackenreid - one that speaks his mind."

From Murdoch to Eternity (mentioned) Edit

  • Margaret tests the younger-looking Brackenreid: "Where were you when John was born?"
  • Thomas was trapped in the Station House under three feet of snow. But when he heard the news, he dug his way out with a latrine bucket. He was by her side before the midwife handed John back to Margaret.
