- Since this episode was almost the Season 1 finale Jared Padalecki talked about the predicament they were facing with this episode “We had a 13-episode pickup, and so when we got the additional five-episode order along with [the] Season 2 [renewal], we kind of talked about, ‘What do we do? Do we try and draw it out and make this [story] now [Episode] 18?'” star Jared Padalecki shares with TVLine. “But it just made sense to go ahead and keep the episode as is.” 
- This episode is the first since the Pilot to have a character die on-screen. It is also the only episode to feature the death of multiple characters.
