  • This episode, along with the following episode, "We Fall", forms the saying "divided we fall".
  • The episode was previously titled "Bugged".[2]
  • While talking about the chip for John's hand, Felicity assures him that "[she and Curtis] have the technology", to which John states "[he's] not the The Six Million Dollar Man". These are references to the TV show, The Six Million Dollar Man, in which the titular character has superpowers due to bionic implants in his body.
  • Felicity and Diggle mention two famous first-person shooter video game franchises, Halo and Call of Duty.
  • Helena Bertinelli is mentioned to be "underground" by her cousin, Jerry. This is likely a nod to Jessica De Gouw's period drama series, Underground.
  • Jerry tells Green Arrow/Oliver Queen that he is a hard person to find and asks why he doesn't have some sort of arrow-shaped spotlight in the sky as a signal. This is a reference to the Bat-Signal used by Batman.
  • Regarding his loss against Cayden James, Felicity talks to Oliver about the movie Bull Durham and they reference one of its quotes: "Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains".
  • The title refers to the split that caused Curtis, Dinah, and Rene to form their own team.
