Stubbs does not look impressed with how he’s been treated this season.

Tonight’s title is a french phrase, of which the most appropriate translations are “tormented souls” or “skinned anatomical figures”. Either way you look at it, it probably doesn’t bode well for some of the Delos hosts.

Not sure if it served as the inspiration for the episode title, but French band Noir Désir has a song called “Les écorchés” which was released in 1989. A section of the lyrics in the song seem particularly well suited to poor Abernathy’s situation last episode (translated lyrics):

“For we are the tormented souls

And are to be abused

The tormented souls

Can feel the screws”
