  • The episode title is a reference to the TV series This Is Us.
  • Lita mentions donating money (left to her by Mick) "to AOC's future presidential run", a reference to U.S. House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known by her initials "AOC".
  • Lita mentions she is "vegan and past [her] Black Sabbath phrase"
  • Mick ensures that his future grandchild has two loving parents; having failed partly with Lita and knowing his father Dick Rory failed completely.
  • When Nate auditions for a role on Bud Stuy, he asks, "Is this for The CW?", a meta-reference to the network DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs on.
  • Behrad's personality changing since his favorite TV show "Bud Stuy" was altered due to the arrival of the alien, who basically just took the show away from the leading actor, is similar to "Raiders of the Lost Art", when Ray Palmer and Nate's career paths were drastically changed since George Lucas quit directing school and never went on to release Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    • The alien taking the place of Behrad's favorite actor is also similar to when Helen of Troy inadvertently took Hedy Lamarr's place in a movie filmed in 1937 which gained the Legends attention in "Helen Hunt".
  • When Zari Tomaz leaves the Air Totem and reunites with the Legends, she notes "Avalance"'s engagement, a nod to the ship name between Sara and Ava
  • It is revealed that female Necrians (like Kayla) lay their eggs in their partner's head through via their ear canal during intercourse, and that Kayla did so to Mick, making him the host of her eggs.


  • In the official press release for the episode, Adam Tsekhman's name was misspelt as "Adam Tsekham" and the title was incorrectly displayed as "This is Gus".
  • The synopsis mentions the Legends traveling to 2024; however, in the episode, the Legends travel to 2023.
