  • This episode, along with the following episode, "We Fall", forms the saying "Divided We Fall", referencing how New Team Arrow's inability to reunite with Team Arrow is leading to Cayden James' victory.
  • The episode was previously titled "Bugged".[2]
  • The Panamax freighter "Huntress", as mentioned by the Bertinelli crime family, is a ship that can pass through the Panama Canal.
  • Black Siren's sonic kiss is similar to Sonya Blade's from the Mortal Kombat video game series.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • When Oliver, Felicity, and Diggle are at their makeshift A.R.G.U.S. bunker trying to find Cayden and his cabal, they use camera footage to find out that Cayden's car has the license number "4S5 HL3". When translated from the language 1337 (or Leet), it's only missing a 0 to spell out "ASSHOLE".
  • Felicity and Diggle mention two famous first-person shooter video game franchises, Halo and Call of Duty.
  • Regarding their loss against Cayden, 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".
