  • When Zari is looking at the picture of her and Behrad, the emotional poignant theme is heard playing from the episode "Marooned", when Snart pretended to kill Rory and instead actually left him marooned in an unknown time period.
  • Gary says he got "Gary Jr. II", a rabbit, from a mysterious carnie, who told him not to feed it after midnight, an obvious reference to the film Gremlins, referencing the rule not to feed the Mogwai past midnight.
  • Several callbacks to previous episodes are made:
    • Sara mentions several people who have left the ship for different reasons (Ray, Jax, Rip).
    • Ava's serial killer podcast is mentioned again.
  • The title of the episode references Gary referring to Marchosias, as Gary Junior, as ship broken after he urinated on the ship.


  • Sara is surprised when Gideon states that there are no abnormalities in her ocular region; however, Sara already saw past this point while talking to Ava.
