    • Reid references Richard Ramírez in this episode. Dubbed the "Night Stalker" by the media prior to his capture, Ramírez is an American serial killer, sex offender and burglar who is awaiting execution on death row at San Quentin State Prison. Following his arrest, sensationalist reporting of his apparent interest in the occult and Satanism was common. His image appears in the opening title sequence of the show.
