    Trivia (2)

    • When Kate visited Brad he introduced her to his assistant - Darin Morgan. Darin Morgan is a real name of a screenwriter and an actor. He is a younger brother of Glen Morgan - well known screenwriter. Darin Morgan debuted as a flukeman in "The X-Files" episode "The Host" and after that he started his contributions as a story writer and screenwriter of the show.

    • Goof: The video the base receives in a live feed. After the team kills the first 2 guards they move down a second hallway. When the video cuts to the HQ, it's showing the first hallway they moved through with bodies while seamlessly cutting back to the team moving down the second hallway. They used the wrong footage.

    Allusions (1)

    • Stonebridge and Scott checked themselves into the hotel using names Langly and Byers. This is an allusion to "The X-Files" TV series or/and its spin-off "The Lone Gunmen" TV series to which Frank Spotnitz was one of the creators, producers and writers. Byers and Langly (and there was also the third person - Frohike) were characters of The Lone Gunmen - a group of "geeky" investigators who ran a conspiracy theory magazine. They had often helped FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on "The X-Files".
