The seven seals is a phrase in the Book of Revelation that refers to seven symbolic seals that secure the scroll. When the first seal is opened the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are summoned, each with their own specific mission. The opening of the fifth seal releases the cries of martyrs. The sixth seal prompts earthquake cataclysmic events. The seventh seal cues seven angelic trumpeters who in turn cue the seven bowl judgements and more cataclysmic events. [8]


The order the seals were broken in the series (Death - War - Pestilence - Famine) is very different to the order that was featured in the Book of Revelation (Pestilence - War - Famine - Death).

  2. "Drums of War"
  3. "Deus Ex Machina"
  4. "A House Divided"
  5. "Harvest"
  6. "Spark of Hope"
  7. "Houston, We Have a Problem"
  8. Bible, Book of Revelation, Chapter Six [Good News Edition, 1976]
