Reference Notes

  1. Visit Praxis' Notes Section for explanation.
  2. Date found by using a Conception Calculator; Helen's birthday was input as her due date.
  3. The year of 1907 is conjecture based on Gregory's last known whereabouts mentioned in 4x11.
  4. Being that the last known whereabouts of Gregory is said to be his trip to Bolivia in 1909, it means that he had disappeared from Helen's life sometime later in 1909 or afterward.
  5. The 1 to 1.5 years worth of regular solar time spent on the surface with the Cabal between 2007 and 2008 is obviously not counted towards this.
  6. Also based off of Ashley's comment in 1x07 about Druitt being "someone from her days back in London before she set up shop here".
  7. Speculation: The show seems to adopt the actors' ages for their characters to a certain extent, in particular their year of birth. Only in the case of Helen Magnus is a similar birth day used rather than the year. Based on Ryan Robbins who plays Henry being born in 1972, and estimating that Young Henry was around age 8-years-old when Magnus found him, this potentially places the year as being roughly 1980.
  8. As most high school graduates are 18 / 19-years-old when they enter college as a Freshman, this potentially occurs in the year 1994 / 1995 depending on when Will's birthday is and the school system's cut-off date. In the U.S., children must be age 5-years-old before September 1st to enter Kindergarten.
  9. Lunch with Amanda Tapping and Robin Dunne. Minute mark: 6:39 - 6:53. According to Robin Dunne, his character was 21-years-old when he was wearing the "flock of seagulls" wig.
  10. Please reference the Notes Section of this episode. There are conflicting differences about this location as seen in the Sanctuary universe vs real life.
  11. In 4x12 Capt. Franklin states that Will left the OCPD to work for the Sanctuary Network 4 years ago. Due to the Season 4 finale taking place in January / February 2012, it places the premiere Episode 1x00 - "Sanctuary for All" in that same time frame of year in 2008.
  12. Even though Magnus is last stated as being 157-years-old in 1x07, due to knowing that Ashley's birthday occurs roughly 2 months before Helen's and based on Ashley still being 23-years-old by 1x09, it means that neither of the characters has celebrated their 2008 birthdays yet as of 1x09.
  13. Timeline Dates for 1x12 through 2x03 placing event occurrence in January / February 2009 is conjecture based on "Revelations" U.S. air dates starting in early January 2009. All 3 subsequent season finales are placed within this time of year to keep chronological continuity. Also, being that a season of TV is considered to span the length of a year, this matches up with Sanctuary for All being a year ago in January / February 2008 based on 4x12 being 4 years later from it in early 2012.
  14. Based on the length of time that Sanctuary work crews are said to have been inside the Old City Sanctuary rebuilding.
  15. Speculation: Based on Druitt's comment of "It seems business is never finished with us despite our losses" and the tone in which it's said, this may mark 1 year since Ashley's abduction / 'death', placing the episode in roughly early January to mid February of 2010.
  16. For the cut off scene in the Avatar Chamber near the end of 3x01, we learn in 3x02 that Gregory (age 180/181) accesses the Avatar Chamber in Praxis to have Will relay a message to Magnus. In 3x11 we learn that because he broke their most sacred laws in order to do so, it results in him then disappearing at that moment from Praxis to go into hiding as a fugitive from Senate Authorities for the next several untold amount of weeks until Magnus arrives to treat Kanaan.
  17. Based on the viability of Cillobar spores, 3x14 can potentially occur up to 6 months after 3x10.
  18. Speculation: Her birthday most likely took place after 3x16 as 3x17 occurs in the month of June, just 66 years earlier in 1944 rather than in 2010.
  19. Will states that Magnus closed 12 Sanctuaries over the last 8 months. The closures are supposedly connected to Magnus's work with Feliz based on Maneuver Delta Epsilon in 4x12; the 4 recent closures discussed in this exact scene in 4x13.
  20. This is a continuity error as his birthday actually occurs in the months of late September / early October.
  21. Speculation: Based on Henry (age ~39) building his FOSSS jacket, this episode potentially occurs maybe about a week to a month prior to Sanctuary for None, placing it roughly in December 2011 or January 2012 if Sanctuary for None happened in January or February of 2012.
