  • The title refers to the aftermath of the revelation that President Olivia Marsdin is an alien.
  • Marsdin says her presidency is in violation of Article 2 of the Constitution, referring to Article 2, section 1 paragraph: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President...".[1]
  • Cat Grant is still in Olivia's side as long as she's still a Democrat.
  • As a joke, Brainy notes that the solution to stress in the 21st century is junk food; hence why he goes to get pizza.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Big Belly Burger on Supergirl, confirming that the fast food restaurant exists on Earth-38.
  • Mercy taunts, "The web is dark and full of fun things". This is a reference to the famous quote "The night is dark and full of terrors" from Game of Thrones, often chanted by the priestess Melisandre.


  • Brainy orders a dozen pizzas, but leaves the shop with only five boxes.
    • It is possible that Nia might have only paid for five pizzas or Brainy simply decided to only take five after experiencing the bigotry in the establishment.
  • Several times in the episode, L-Corp is referred to as "Luthor Corp", even though Lena had the company's name officially changed two years previously.
  • When Mercy is hacking the image inducers purchased from L-Corp, Brainy's is among those which malfunctioned. This is impossible since Brainy's image inducer is his own personal device from the 31st century.[2]
    • Furthermore, even if Brainy had purchased the image inducer from L-Corp during his time, the futuristic technology would've been too advanced for Mercy to hack using the present-day L-Corp program.
