What the heck is this description trying to say? Oh, and the description is a stub.
It is the reverse of Where Are They Now? Epilogue but for one episode, like where the characters were.
It's when the last scene of an episode or series shows when all the relevant characters were at the event that precipitated the events of the episode or series.
- There is a montage to "Mad World" in second-to-last scene of Donnie Darko, in which we see many characters as they were before the plot took off. Or... where they are now, depending on how one interprets the whole time-travel thing.
- Oedipus Hex in CSI: NY[context?]
- Mutiny in JAG[context?]
- The final episode of the 2004 Battlestar Galactica has some flashbacks of many of the main characters prior to the Apocalypse How that starts the series.
- The episode "Needs" in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse does this, and reveals that the dolls' temporary self-awareness and even their near-escape was all part of the House's plan.
