Goof: You can clearly see Thom's scar in his right eyebrow missing in the scene where he kisses Rachel in her house.

Trivia--The first city name to appear in this episode is Sydney. So we see Sydney in Sydney for the first time the last time Alias aired (the series finale was aired as 2 episodes together).

  • Before shooting the ground Sydney was standing on to cause the cave in at Mt Subasio, Sloane said he knew of the pain she felt having lost Danny and Vaughn.
  • Despite it's name, The Mount Subasio is not a mountain but a little hill height only 4.232 feets.
