Major EventsEdit


  • This episode takes several cues from Anthony Bourdain's autobiography Kitchen Confidential, such as the flicking of blood around the kitchen after cutting oneself and the phrase "don't touch my knife, don't touch my johnson." The notion of someone being murdered in the kitchen and a chef butchering the corpse for disposal had previously been featured in Bourdain's first novel "Bone in the Throat."
