The prop knife that was used in the final scene with Chase and his victim Evan was obviously made of rubber.
The title of this episode ("From Childhood's Hour") was derived from a poem by Edgar Allan Poe of the same name.
The unsub in this episode suffered from "asymbolia." Also called pain disassociation, this condition is manifested by pain that is perceived, but does not cause suffering, and often results from injury to the brain.
Reid stated he was an MIT graduate; however, when it has already been established in Season 4 ("Memoriam") that he chose CalTech over MIT.
Hotch and Rossi stated they were part of the FBI team 10 years previously after the shooting at the school; however, Rossi was retired from the FBI at that time. In Season 3, Strauss mentions it had been 10 years since Rossi was at the FBI.
In real life, College Boards may release past AP exams, but never the exam taker's name.
The license plate on the car of one of Luke Dolan's neighbors (WLT-62X3) was the same one used for Gideon's car in the final scene of "In Name and Blood."
When JJ and Morgan are staking out Doyle, Reid calls JJ's cell phone. The back light on her iPhone is actually locked rather than shown as an active call screen.
During the closed-door Senate hearing, Senator Cramer says to SSA David Rossi, "..., but I'm not the one on trial, Agent."
An U.S. Senate hearing is not a trial, as it is a hearing. A better phrasing might have been, "I'm not the one under investigation (or review)."
The drug used by the unsub, as originally written, was changed to "trilamite" because the network didn't want to advertise the actual drug used to treat seasickness, which is extremely dangerous.
The tool that they had trouble identifying because it left parallel cuts is called pattern shears. It is a type of scissors used to cut paper or velum patterns for stained glass. One side has two parallel blades that the other side presses the paper into as it cuts. This ensures that the pattern pieces are slightly smaller than drawn so there will be space between the glass pieces to fit lead came or copper foil and solder when pieced together. The width between the parallel blades is slightly different depending on the technique being used. (Lead came is thicker so needs more space than copper foil.) His was broken in half and he used the double bladed side, thus the parallel cuts.
In actuality, if Hotch were to attempt his underwater shooting, his gun would jam after the first shot because the mechanism can't cycle properly when fired underwater.
Even worse, the sound of the gunshot would burst his eardrums, and might even cause serious internal injuries. Shockwaves travel much faster in water than air, which increases the damage they cause.
This episode marked the first time that Rachel Nichols presented the ending quotation.
This episode wrapped on March 21, 2011.
Indianapolis Colts Tight End Dallas Clark guest-stars in this episode as San Diego Police Officer Austin Kent. His character was killed in the first script, but Rick Dunkle rewrote the part to make Clark a detective.
"Hanley Waters" is an area in Tampa named for the intersection of Hanley Road and Waters Avenue.
When Garcia is looking up prescriptions that have been filled for Ben Foster, his date of birth is shown on screen as 10-4-2001, which would make the unsub only 9 years old at the time. It is mentioned several times during the episode that the unsub is in his twenties.
As the team closes in on Ben Foster at his home, he is sitting on his bed surrounded by the three 'friends' he sees in his delusions. One of them goes to the window and warns the rest that the police are coming and they needed to run. This is impossible because the delusions cannot act on their own; they can only perform what Ben imagines they are doing. Since he was not aware the police were outside, he could not imagine that one of his delusions looked out the window and saw the police.
Greg Van Dyke transportation coordinator for the series, guest-stars as the bus driver in this episode.
