Trivia

  • After Felicity runs a H.I.V.E. Ghost over with a van to save Diggle and Sara, she states, "It's been a while since I've done that." This is a reference to the Season 2 episode "Streets of Fire", where Felicity rammed into Isabel Rochev with a van to rescue Diggle​​.
  • When Diggle warns that "Genesis is coming", Felicity quips, "I doubt it. Phil Collins said they'd never tour again." This is a reference to the English rock band Genesis, of which Phil Collins was a drummer and singer.
  • The title refers to the project which is the endgame of H.I.V.E. and Damien Darhk.
