Trivia

In the first scene when the newscaster is talking about the events of Civil War, there is a lit up sign in the back of the bar that says "Buck's", probably a reference to Bucky, Captain America's best friend and The Winter Soldier, James Buchanan Barnes (AKA Bucky, or as Cap sometimes calls him, Buck).

Goofs

The Washington license plate of the Watchdogs' van had an incorrect number. The State of Washington uses a 7 character system, not an 8 character system. Also, the plate AFI31506, minus one number, is a passenger car plate. A 15 passenger van uses a truck plate such as C28592M (not an actual plate). See more »

Quotes

Elena 'Yo-Yo' Rodriguez: You need a beer. And some faith.
Alphonso 'Mack' Mackenzie: Hm. You ever wonder if that's the word we use to... to fool ourselves? Give us false hope?
Elena 'Yo-Yo' Rodriguez: That's how evil wins. When good people begin to, uh... doubt, and run the other way instead of stand up and fight. You see it everywhere. In Colombia we have a saying: "El mal presas los débiles porque miedos fuertes."
Alphonso 'Mack' Mackenzie: Evil preys on the weak... because it fears the strong.

This episode moves the pieces on the board in an interesting and unexpected way, so that the scene is set for the two hour finale, it has a negative aspect in how a certain showdown felt underwhelming, but it is overall an intelligently written episode that takes advantage of the audience assumptions, particularly when it comes to Lincoln and what we expect of his character.
