    • The episode's title is a mash-up of two British films: Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Mike Newell's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).

    • Roy Staley: (about crime boss Ronnie Ives) He assembles a crew of strangers in a Keyser Söze manner, none of them knowing each other, and thrusts them into his meticulously pre-planned heists.
      Keyser Söze was a fictional character in the 1995 film The Usual Suspects, written by Christopher McQuarrie and directed by Bryan Singer. The character is a rarely seen kingpin, like Ronnie Ives who pulls off a heist and then disappears without a trace.

      I'm glad they are back but this episode was not up to par. We always talk about the best episode ever but I have to say that I found that this was the worst episode ever.
