Trivia

As the episode opens a voiceover from the radio show "Trish Talk" is playing, a show hosted by Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), the best friend of Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). Trish is a main character in season one of Jessica Jones (2015). Luke Cage also appears in a few episodes of that series, and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) appears in the last episode of season one, and even references that appearance in this episode. See more »

Goofs

While Det. Scarfe lies dying on the pavement in the alley. Misty is shown kneeling over his body crying, "No, No" several times. During this shot, in the far background you can see the blurry orange lights of 2 NYPD cruisers pulling in from both left and right. However, following some dramatic shots of the scene from above and roughly a full 20-25 seconds later, the 2 cruisers are clearly shown arriving as if for the first time. See more »
