Nitpick: When Mimi found Jake pinned underneath the truck, he was pinned underneath the roof of the truck, with the bed sticking upward. She and Stanley (after he woke up) could have pressed down on the bed of the truck. This would have made it easier to pull Jake out sooner. They could have done the same when the rescue crew came later that night.

In this episode it's revealed Johnston Green is a retired army Ranger. In "Crossroads" we learned that Johnston's father (Jake's grandfather) was an army ranger at D-day. This makes being an army ranger a family legacy. Jake is seen wearing dog tags in an earlier episode. Was he too an army ranger?
The Morse Code Message heard over the title is:
There are six capital cities in the United States representing the Federal Government. There are five additional "Presidents" bringing a total of six people claiming to have power in the United States.
April's attorney's name is William Garity, as seen when she exits his office with her divorce filing papers.
Here we learn that Robert was part of a several man team that was supposed to deliver the packages to several major cities. Hawkins was supposed to deliver his package to Columbus, Ohio.
Nitpick: In "Vox Populi", we found out that Johnston Green had been mayor for about 25 years. In this episode, we learn that he took office when Eric was in second grade. Assuming that Eric was a normal age for his grade level, that would put Eric around 32 years old. Previously his age had been established as about 27.
Jericho Geography: The second line in the heading on April's divorce papers reads "County of Jericho, Kansas". This would make it likely that Jericho is the county seat.
The following locations are indicated as "Final list of intended targets" on Hawkins' computer screen:
Washington DC: 38 53' 55.00" N 77 01' 37.00" W
This is on 11th St NW near corner G St NW
Philadelphia: 39 57' 34.00" N 73 02' 38.02" W
This has to be an error because the location is in the Atlantic Ocean! The correct location should be around 75° W.
Los Angeles: 34 03' 00.95" N 118 14' 22.08" W
The Japanese American National Museum
New York: 40 43' 01.79" N 74 00' 18.38 W
Leonard St between Church St and Broadway
Denver: 39 44' 29.28" N 104 58' 57.89" W
Parking lot at 16th E St corner Logan St.
Dallas: 32 47' 00.61" N, no longitude given.
St. Louis, Chicago: no coordinates given.
The timeframe for the bombings has been established as occurring in 2009. The TV announcer mentioned the "mid-term elections" while discussing the President's address. This would make it the year 2010.
Jake Green is a pilot and an Embry-Riddle graduate. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) is a non-profit, non-sectarian, coeducational private university with a history dating back to the early days of aviation.
