Origin of the TitleEdit
Main Plot PointsEdit
- Root and Hanna were playing Oregon Trail on an Apple IIe computer. Oregon Trail was developed by the Minnesota Education Computing Consortium (MECC) for use by elementary schools in the early days of home computing, and later marketed to home users by Broderbund Software. When Broderbund was absorbed by Scholastic Books, it ceased updating the software. More modern versions of the program eventually returned to the market across multiple platforms when The Learning Company bought Scholastic's software rights.
- Although Root's full first name Samantha was never mentioned in the episode, she is listed as "Groves, Samantha" in Hanna's missing persons report.
- Bad code, according to Root, is a person who is evil and can not change his or her nature. Finch later uses the term in the episode "Triggerman".
Acronyms and VocabularyEdit
Bear is trained to respond to commands in Dutch, including:
- Liggen: lie down
- Laat vallen: drop that.
- Locations identified as Bishop, TX were filmed in Congers, NY.
Bloopers and Continuity ErrorsEdit
- Bear chewed the spine of the book in one shoot and the other side in the previous shoot.
- The Texas flag out side of Razorback Bar hangs upside down: red over white when it should be white over red.
- The photograph of Denton Weeks in the newspaper article comes from a scene in "Super" when he and Alicia Corwin visited Nathan Ingram in his office. Weeks is wearing the same clothes and Alicia Corwin's ponytail can be seen in the background.
- That particular newspaper article was written by Maxine Angelis who would later become a person of interest in "Bury the Lede".
- Relton, MD, the small town where Reese tracked down Root to Weeks' cottage, doesn't exist in real life. On Reese's map it was placed where there's actually a small historical town named St. Mary's City.
- Finch left a tap code on Davenport's phone indicating Root's escape route. One might notice that Reese omitted the letter "K" from his deciphering grid. When using tap code, the letters "C" and "K" share the same grid square which allows the alphabet to be represented in a 5×5 grid.
