  • Trivia

    • Desmond's stubble is inconsistent. He is clean-shaven at the airport, but has a stubble in Jax bar.

    • Hurley tells Desmond that their bags are at carousel 4, but when Desmond picks up his bag he is at carousel F-2.

    • Penny asks Desmond to meet her at a coffee shop on Melrose and Sweetzer in Los Angeles. There is no coffee shop on Melrose and Sweetzer. However, there is an antique shop called "Thanks for the Memories."

    • Despite having parked directly in front of the police station, Desmond's car can not be seen in the reflection on the police station door.

    • When the technician throws the switch to the breaker which activates the electromagnetic field, he pulls the lever down. However, after being ordered to turn it off, he pulls it down again.

    • Charlie tells Desmond that Kate and Edward Mars were sitting two rows in front of him. However, Charlie was sitting two rows behind Jack, just as he was in the original timeline and it's not until after Charlie is arrested that he is moved to the same area of the plane as Kate and even then it was much further than two rows.

    • There is a painting of balanced scales in Charles Widmore's office featuring something white on one scale and something black on the other.

    • The Numbers:
      Hurley tells Desmond that the bags are on Carousel 4.
      The Oceanic flight schedule contains all six of the Numbers in various places.

    • On episode "LA X, Part 1", Desmond wears a wedding ring on Oceanic 815. However in this episode he is not wearing one.

    • This is the second episode, after "Not in Portland", to have no scenes on the main island.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Despite both being former main cast members, Jeremy Davies (Daniel) and Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) are credited as guest stars and not special guest stars, continuing the Season 6 trend of one entirely alphabetical guest cast list.

    • Music: Fantaisie-Impromptu in C-Sharp Minor by Frédéric Chopin (played once again on the piano by Daniel.)

    • This episode does not feature a "Previously on Lost" segment at the beginning.

    • Fisher Stevens (Minkowski) makes his first appearance since "Meet Kevin Johnson", after a 32-episode gap.

    • Though credited, Nestor Carbonell (Richard), Michael Emerson (Ben), Jeff Fahey (Frank), Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Ken Leung (Miles), Evangeline Lilly (Kate), Terry O'Quinn (Locke) and Zuleikha Robinson (Ilana) do not appear in this episode.

      Thus, this episode only features six of the fifteen main cast members of Season 6, a season record low.

    • This is Hurley's 100th episode of Lost. With this appearance, Hurley became the third character to appear in 100 episodes, following Jack and Kate.

  • Allusions

    • John Milton: Penny's last name is Milton in the flash-sideways timeline, which is likely a (recurring) reference to John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost, a 15th Century poem which deals with themes of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. It further touches on fate and predestination.

    • Caltech: Daniel references this university in Los Angeles.

    • Harold C. "Rabbit" Angstrom: The white rabbit's name is Angstrom. Harold C. "Rabbit" Angstrom is the main character in five of John Updike's novels (Rabbit, Run; Rabbit Redux; Rabbit Is Rich; Rabbit at Rest; Rabbit Remembered). The novels follow the human themes of life, death, and redemption.
