Has anyone read Nabokov's "Bend Sinister"? I'm just wondering what, if anything, it has to with the "End Sinister" episode.

According to Webster`s, a "bend sinister" is "a diagonal bend that runs from the sinister chief to the dexter base on a heraldic shield". "sinister" can also mean left, so it`s the left-side diagonal curve. End Sinister is clearly a play on words, the "curve" in this case could be the convoluted plotline. So, it`s a curvy, left-handed way to end the series! Uh... heh heh... I`ll be quiet now :)
