  • This is the first episode of the series not to feature Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer).
  • While produced as the ninth episode of the season, this episode is considered to be the eighth episode due to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover which is considered as episode 0.[2]
  • The episode's title is a play on the phrase "sorry, not sorry".
    • It also references the fact that Zari never met the Legends and vice-versa due to a dramatic timeline change, thus a new version and history of Zari now exists, unlike the one from the original timeline.[3]
  • This episode was originally set to air on March 24, 2020. However, it was pushed back further with a rerun of "A Head of Her Time" to air instead to accommodate the halted production of every other TV show from the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.[4]
  • Lita's Halloween costume is very similar to Leonard Snart's costume during his time as a career criminal.
  • John locates the second piece of the Loom of Fate in British Columbia in which is Vancouver. Vancouver is where most Arrowverse shows had been filmed.
    • The Supernatural series is also another CW series that was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia.
      • Coincidentally, the Winchesters, the main characters of Supernatural, investigated deaths of descendants of Titanic survivors caused by Atropos in the episode "My Heart Will Go On".
  • Nate and Behrad refer to Zari and the latter as the 'Wonder Twins', a superhero duo originating in The All-New Super Friends Hour.
