UPDATE: Rachel Nichols DID end up getting her eye mole removed, according to this excerpt from an article over at The Loop:
“I’ve had this skin tag under my eye. I decided to tie a string around it and take it off. I showed up for this season and said, ‘I got my mole removed,’ and [creator] Simon [Barry] said, ‘Oh, we’re going to have to digitally put it on you in all the flash forwards because those are the fans that we have.’”
She’s right, you know. Sci fi fans (and Continuum fans in particular) are just that observant!
