  • During an argument, Oscar Rodas mentions a border wall being built in the United States to keep Mexicans out of the country. This an obvious reference to the real-life presidency of Donald Trump, but within the show's continuity, his comment doesn't make sense. In "Resist", it's revealed that President Olivia Marsdin is literally an alien from outer space, and earlier in "Welcome to Earth", she signed an executive order offering aliens such as herself full US citizenship if they so desired. If Olivia is tolerant of extraterrestrials, it seems unlikely that she'd be so intolerant of legal aliens as to resort to such an extreme action in foreign policy like building a wall on the border.
  • As proof of who he says he is, J'onn shows M'rynn his favorite memory of them together. However, since his father's presence that day was intended as a surprise, J'onn should have no recollection of M'rynn alone talking to his granddaughters, as he wasn't there to witness it.
    • However, since Martians share memories between them, it's possible J'onn got his father's version of the memory soon after the actual event itself.
  • When Supergirl punches a White Martian off his feet, it is clearly seen that her fist never even touches the alien.
  • J'onn is seen flying onto his house's balcony, but it was previously stated that flying on Mars was strictly for war.
  • N'keyy refers to H'ronmeer as "your God" (speaking to J'onn J'onzz), but Armek previously referred to H'ronmeer as the White Martians' God of Death.
    • However, it is possible that N'keyy wanted to distance herself from the White Martians' beliefs.
