Trivia

  • The title is a reference to Laurel Lance's time of death, as announced by the presiding doctor.
  • Laurel's death in this episode has received almost universal backlash from fans and has been the subject of much controversy among critics.
  • Damien Darhk mentions the Khushu Idol was made by the Homo Magi. In DC comics, the Homo Magi are a sub-race species of humanity who naturally have magical powers.

Goofs

  • Despite an official synopsis referring to Felicity talking to Curtis, this never occurs, nor does the latter even appear.
  • During an attempted resuscitation on Laurel, the medical staff deliver cardiac stimulation via a defibrillator and apply conductive patches, as is standard practice. However, they place the patches top of Laurel's hospital gown instead of directly on her skin; this would interfere with the delivery of the electrical current, potentially causing her gown to melt or catch fire as a result.
  • In the scene where Laurel goes into cardiac arrest, the medical staff are seen working on her resuscitation for barely 60 seconds before declaring her deceased. That amount of time is far too short to give up on resuscitation.
  • When Dr. Schwartz gives the time of death for Laurel, she only says 11:59 without saying PM. Regardless, time of death is given in 24h time, which would put Laurel's death at 23:59.
