The chess problem from Through the looking glass is also in Episode 7 (on Mr. Shaibel's wall).

Well spotted, Joost - I hadn't noticed P1252979. The return to Methuen is one of the most powerful scenes in the story. The beautiful orphanage choir music in the background as she goes down to Mr Shaibel's cellar makes it unfairly difficult to stop a tear or two from coming to the eye. "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is thematic, as it too tells the story of a pawn-girl who meets various people who aid or hinder her in her journey to promotion. Finally, the stipulation "White pawn [Alice] to play, and win in eleven moves." I take as a kind of a challenge to Beth: "OK - *now* you need to go to Moscow and win." I've added a reprint mention to PDB.
