Trivia

  • Damien Darhk refers to the world going "Dr. Strangelove", referencing the 1964 film which ends with the world entering a nuclear apocalypse.
  • Felicity states to Curtis and Noah that the world will have a "sequel" to war games if they don't hack Rubikon and stop nuclear disaster. This is a reference to 1983 film WarGames where the young hacker David Lightman tries to stop supercomputer WOPR to launch a nuclear missiles. Curtis also mentions it's sequel WarGames: The Dead Code from 2008 which was released on DVD and, in contrast to original, got panned from critics.
  • When Oliver and John enter the underground bunker Genesis, John compared this to Mount Weather, a governmental facility which was built by FEMA during the Cold War.
  • During the hack battle for Rubikon, Felicity's former boyfriend and a member of HIVE Cooper Seldon taunts to her with a line "We are going to once more in the breach". That line is from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country where Curtis recognises this reference.
  • This episode follows the pattern of the penultimate episode of a season being named after a Bruce Springsteen song, in this case after the 1973 song "Lost in the Flood".
