    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Cannibal Corpse

        More references to the death metal band Cannibal Corpse and their song "Hammer Smashed Face" appear in this episode. The Council's spy strikes a Mordhaus guard in the head with a hammer, hence re-enacting the title of the song. Also, the motivational speaker references the song during his speech.

      • Apocalypse Now

        The scene with Agent 2-16 rising headfirst from a pool of water pays homage to a well-known sequence from Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 war film Apocalypse Now, about a soldier's journey during the Vietnam War which was inspired by Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness novella.

      • Thinking Outside The Box

        This episode's title of "Murdering Outside The Box" is a play on words of the business term "Thinking outside the box" which is a catch phrase which refers to looking at a problem from a new perspective without preconceptions, sometimes called a process of lateral thought. The catch phrase has now become widely used in corporate business settings, especially by management consultants, and has spawned a number of advertising slogans.
