Why in Database: Turtle elements appear in several episodes of this series, both in the form of verbal references and as real animals.

First appearance in season one, episode ten (Six Months Ago), where turtle is mentioned in dialogue:

– Evolutionary imperative.
– That which we are destined to do.
– Sea turtles die on the exact same beach where they were born.

Another mention is yet again in season one, episode fourteen (Distractions):

– Hi. Yeah, we’re at the aquarium right now. They just let Zach feed him turtle grass. We’re practically on our way.

We found more turtle elements in the third season. One of the characters “meets” the turtle in episode two (The Butterfly Effect) and even thinks that it is talking to him, which is not true (another human is speaking).

– Thank you, turtle. You saved my life.
– Why are you talking to a turtle?

In the third episode of the third season (One of Us, One of Them) the turtle described above appears again.

This turtle appears also in episode four of the third season (I Am Become Death).

After a one-episode break, in the sixth episode of the third season (Dying of the Light) the turtle reappears, the hero travels with him, returns to civilization. He is also mentioned in dialogues:

– Okay, turtle, you got me home. So now we just need to find Daphne, save her life, get her to fall in love with me. So you just give me a sign. I can’t believe I’m talking to a turtle. High five, turtle.

– And we had this beautiful baby girl and this pet turtle, and we’re so happy.

In episode seven of the third season (Eris Quod Sum), the turtle only appears in one scene, in the terrarium, but he is clearly visible.
The final turtle scene that we found is in episode fourteen of the third season (A Clear and Present Danger), turtle is both seen and mentioned in dialogue:

– Hey, how the hell did you get out of your tank?
– You’re talking to a turtle again.
