    • Purple Man:

      Purple Man, or Zebediah Killgrave, is a supervillain from the Daredevil comic book published by Marvel Comics. He was a former Russian spy who was doused with a chemical that turned his skin and hair purple and gave him the ability to control people's minds.

      At the end of the episode, when Nick is found in the grafitti covered room, the words "Purple Man" can be seen written on the wall. This could be a reference to the episode's general plot involving tricks of the mind and hallucinations.
