Guest starring




  • 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 on 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.




Preparation ran from February 2 until February 11, 2016. Shooting ran from February 12 until February 23, 2016.[1]
