- This is the first and only episode of the series to not feature Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen). However, he still appears via archive footage.
- The real reason the backdoor pilot for the proposed series was created is because Marc Guggenheim was asked by The CW to make an additional episode to bridge the gap between the crossover episode and series finale "", and also bring the episode order for season 8 from nine to ten.
- The original title "Livin' In the Future" would've been the second Season 8 episode, and eighth penultimate episode to be named after a Bruce Springsteen song before it was changed at the request of Warner Bros.
- However, this title is mentioned by Laurel in the episode.
- This is the last episode of the series to feature series regulars Ben Lewis (Older William Clayton) and Joseph David-Jones (Connor Hawke).
- However, Ben Lewis still appears via archive footage in the series finale.
