Trivia

  • Due to poor ratings, this is the final episode of the series. An online petition, which received upwards of 50,000 signatures was started to encourage other networks to pick up the series, to no avail. There is however, a script online, by the show' s creator, for a 14th episode.
  • The episode is largely based on the 1988 comic Hellblazer #4, which shares the same title; in the comic, the girl who goes missing is Gemma Masters, Constantine's niece, whose parents, Tony and Cheryl Masters, are members of the Resurrection Crusade. Constantine's sister Cheryl is mentioned, though she went unnamed, in "Rage of Caliban".
  • The branding iron the man is heating up is called the sigil of Lucifer.
  • The address where the murdered security guard was found "4 Delano St" is a double reference, to Hellblazer #4, where the story came from, and Jamie Delano, who wrote the original story.
  • This episode reveals that the Brujeria is working for Manny, who is their leader, to bring down the Rising Darkness and unite Hell and Earth into a single dimension.
