When Richard Slade asks the members of Nemesis to cast their votes on whether the captured Kimo and Truck are guilty or not, one member clearly puts a white ball (for "not guilty") in the bag - yet when he empties the bag, all the balls are black (for "guilty").
At the end of this episode, McGarrett addresses Carew as "Kimo," explaining that it's "Hawaiian for Jim" and that he had "better get used to it."
In this episode, Tony Alika finds an attorney who gets him released on bail. Alika had been convicted of ordering the killing of crooked real estate developer Howard Kramer in the Season 11 episode "Stringer." Later on, Alika's attorney convinces a judge to declare a mistrial in the Stringer case.
Before McGarrett books Alika, he notes that Alika took control of the Kumu (Hawaiian mafia) from Cappy Pahoa, a reference to the former mob boss featured in the Season 10 episode "A Death in the Family."
Toward the end of the episode, McGarrett reveals the reason he became a police officer. He tells L.A. mob kingpin Allie Francis that when he was thirteen, his father was killed at the age of 42. McGarrett's father was returning home from work when he was run down by a criminal who was fleeing after robbing a supermarket. McGarrett's mother brought up the kids on her own for the next 20 years.
The producers needed a business office for one scene. A crew member had seen the office of Alan Beale, the president of Blackfield Hawaii. Mr. Beale agreed to the use of the office but only if he and his administrative assistant were included in the scene.
When the detectives are investigating dentists (and there are many in Honolulu, as indicated in the dialogue), Chin Ho can be seen leaving the door of a Dr. Westman after talking with him. Moments later, Danny can be seen entering the same door, presumably to interview the same dentist. If there are so many dentists to investigate, why are Chin Ho and Danny visiting the same dentist?
Two different sets are used when Danny and Duke are looking down at the "revival" process. In a close-up they are looking through center windows above some spectators whose heads are near the windows. Immediately following the close-up, a far shot is shown where Danny and Duke are not seen, the people are different and their heads are much lower than the windows.
The characters of Millicent and Norman can be seen in the far shots, sitting behind a curve in the railing between the left and center sections but are not there in the close-up. Other people seen in the center section of the close-up are in the left section in the far shots but Duke and Danny couldn't have been looking from that window because they are looking directly down at the revival, not at an angle and because the side windows have doorways under them and these were not visible in the close-up.
The plot of this episode is very similar to that of the Margery Allingham novel Police at the Funeral.
Carol Lynley played James MacArthur's love interest in his first Disney movie, The Light in the Forest (1958).
When Duke is watching Fabian swim back to the pier at the end of the episode, a freeze-frame close-up of him shows trees in the background that couldn't have been at the pier. This shot of Herman Wedemeyer apparently was taken from the opening credits and reversed.
George Cameron refers to the Governor as Phil. Richard Denning (Governor Paul Jameson) played U.S. Treasury Agent Philip Grey in the Season 1 episode "Twenty-Four Karat Kill."
While discussing the situation over the telephone, Jonathan Kaye states that he "understood" that the widow had come to see McGarrett with her suspicion that her husband had been murdered. McGarrett wondered how Kaye knew this, as he had told no one of her visit. However.. .Madame Sandanarik did not come to see McGarrett. McGarrett came to see her, in what looked to be a very posh apartment, complete with butler.
Although Connie Kissinger is credited as McGarrett's secretary Lani, she doesn't appear in the final edit of this episode. She did appear in the episode "The Cop on the Cover."
Guest stars Kurt Russell and Tim Matheson co-starred in the series The Quest.
Two establishing shots of the Naniloa Surf Hotel on two separate days in the storyline used parts of the same footage. The same three people can be seen walking along a path and a woman with an orange top can be seen walking across the grass.
As McGarrett gives a speech to the policemen's wives, a shot of the audience shows the women smiling on the verge of laughter - while McGarrett is saying nothing remotely comical. He is telling the wives "Police work is teamwork. Not just on the street, but in the home, too."
At the beginning of the episode, the bad guys make their first attempt to steal the guns from a military truck. The man riding shotgun leaves the truck to check on an apparently injured man at the side of the road, who promptly gets the drop on him while a second man beckons the driver out of the truck. The driver suddenly shoves his opponent back. His partner also begins to fight back, but is shot. By this time the truck is driving away, and the second bad guy fires after it, but it keeps going. In the next scene, it is reported that the one soldier died, while the driver is critical with a wound to the chest. How did he get shot?
The Peeping Tom presents Five-O with some valuable information--namely, that two separate couples went into the house where a man died. However, he neglects to mention a very noticeable oddity which would have put them on the right track that much faster: Two brunette females entered the house, but a brunette and a blonde came running out.
While Chin Ho stands at the front of the bus talking to the driver as he drives the bus, a notice above Chin Ho clearly states "For passenger safety federal law prohibits operation of this bus while anyone is standing forward of standee line." A Five-0 officer should be aware of federal law.
