Trivia: Angel leaves the Reaper locked in a metal cage as the camera pans slowly back so we can only see his eyes - almost exactly the same shot as when Connor left Angel trapped in the metal coffin at the end of "Tomorrow".

Trivia: In this episode, Cordelia makes a reference to "self-destructing tapes and a dossier".
