Emma Hollis joins the Millennium Group in this episode.
In the scene that forms the opening of Via Dolorosa and close to the end of this episode, Frank and Jordan are seen running down a school corridor. Though it's meant to be the same scene the two are not identical. In the first, the teacher is in the background in the corridor shouting at Frank that 'you can't just come in here and take her'. In the finale episode those words are spoken in the classroom itself, with her just coming out of the classroom to say 'Mr Black!'
The episode is named for British writer Robert Graves' autobiography Goodbye to All That.
Continuity: In the opening scene of this episode, Frank witnesses the execution of Ed Cuffle, the Polaroid killer that he spoke of in "Pilot." However, in that episode he claimed that Cuffle was serving triple life sentences, not facing the death penalty.
The death toll for this episode was: 1 person.
The character from this episode, Liddy Hooper may look familiar to some Millennium fans. The actor April Telek played the stripper Calamity in the pilot episode.
Whilst I realise the viewer needed to see them, the 'growing' hands and the umbilical cords are in large containers, supposedly packed in ice. In fact, they are sitting very neatly near the top of the container - the cords in particular are practically just lying on top of the ice. This is not going to preserve them!
In the scene where Emma goes to talk to the researcher at the FBI-lab she is studying the growing hand, the first shot has been speed up.
Lucy Butler appears for a moment at the end of this episode. It's one of those "look quick or you'll miss it" type of things.
The bible agent Hollis is reading is the King James Bible version (though she reads from Revelations 4:6 and not Revelations 4:4; the passage Peter Watts said she should read from).
In Judaism, as this episode explains, the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem is prophesied as a Messianic sign. Some Jews endorse the construction of the Third Temple. Others believe, however, that only the Messiah can build the Temple and that no steps should be taken to reclaim the Temple Mount, that any effort to hasten the coming of the Messiah is tantamount to man pushing the end times. In Hebrew faith this concept has long been referred to as "forcing the end."
The title "Antipas" refers to a biblical term which means 'against all' and is a contraction of the term Antipapas, literally 'against the pope' or 'opposed to the holy father'.
The episode's title also links Lucy Butler's activities to Herod Antipas, the frivolous and vain prince known for many infamous crimes who faced Jesus Christ before his crucifixion.
During the scene where Emma examines the motel crime scene, a TV with The X-Files can be heard playing in the background.
Though the two gunmen are heavily armoured and have protective vests/helmets etc. Both have completely exposed arms and hands. It seems very strange, given the amount of police firepower and snipers that someone wouldn't think to simply shoot them both in the arms, which would have rendered them incapable of firing any more rounds! I understand from a story point of view it was necessary to prolong the scene, but from a logic point of view it doesn't make much sense.
Revealing Mistakes: When the car is swerving in the scene with Hollis and Van Horn if you look in the bottom left of the screen, you can see a shadow from the camera vehicle.
In the scene in the hotel room before Geibelhouse arrives and the camera pans towards the door, you can see a boom mic in the reflection of mirror in the upper right corner.
Continuity: The car that Richard Gilbert was in during the accident in the beginning was broken into 2 pieces but in later scenes the car is in one piece.
Frank is awakened by a bird hitting and breaking his window. Frank rushes over to the window in his bare feet, apparently encountering no broken glass.
