Guest starring[]





  • After the opening scene, which picks up immediately where the previous episode left off, the rest of the episode takes place three weeks afterwards, matching how this episode aired three weeks after "Fail Safe".
  • During Lois' newsreel about Metropolis being under attack, Leslie Larr is shown on live TV about to kill Lois, with this serving as a parallel to the death of Lois' Earth-TUD22 doppelgänger when Superman killed her on live TV. The only difference surrounding this parallel is that John Henry Irons is able to save Lois, whereas he couldn't save her doppelgänger and watched on as she was killed.
