Dorothy's Costume-Derived Timeline

Image: Horizontal Rule

  This timeline determines flashback dates first from script evidence, then from real historical people and events depicted, and only finally from costuming and sets.  For example, the flashback costumes of "Partners of the Month" and "Fatal Mistake" postdate the scripts' dialogue and stage directions by many decades -- even centuries.  In cases of conflict, this timeline gives precedence to the script's text over filmed costuming and props.  Continuity throughout the story of Forever Knight is the guiding goal, and may influence other factors.

        Italics designate flashbacks by characters other than Nick, as well as past events referenced without an establishing flashback.

(Maintained by Amy R.  Compiled with assistance from Jo, Lisa, Laurie and others.  Originally based on Dorothy E. and Valerie M.'s excellently researched and now stunningly formatted costume-derived timeline, which gives precedence to costuming and sets over script text in cases of conflict.)
