Episode Synopsis

While on a Dokusensha the three sisters find themselves trapped and separated in a strange town, which only gets more bizarre as time passes.

Extended Summary


  • The title of the episode is a play on a line of dialogue from G.K. Chesterton short story "The Sign of the Broken Sword," collected in his “The Innocence of Father Brown.” Collection. The exact text varies with the different editions of the book and the metaphor is used multiple times in the story but the general text is "'Where does a wise man hide a leaf?' 'In the forest.'" Maggie misquotes this line at the beginning of the episode, which Anita corrects.
  • Except for the elderly couple, none of the townspeople's faces are clearly shown.
