  • References to The Evil Dead:
    • Cheryl grabbing Ash through the wall is possibly a reference to when she grabbed Ash through the door in The Evil Dead.
    • Cheryl is wearing the same clothes she died wearing in The Evil Dead.
  • Ash's line to Kelly "You're like the daughter I never had" was probably intended to be foreshadowing the original ending of Season 2, which involved Ash having sex with Kelly's mother when the group went back to 1982, causing Ash to become Kelly's biological father. The ending was scrapped just before it was going to be filmed when showrunner Craig DiGregorio was fired.
  • This episode marks the first time another actor (or actress, in this case) from the original Evil Dead films besides Bruce Campbell or Ted Raimi has appeared in the show.
