This episode omits the opening theme.
Linda appears to be driving a red
911 Targa convertible. It may be the same car used as
Josephine Fraser's car in
"The Responsibility Seat".
At the beginning of the episode, Linda is wearing the same
sexy, red leather dress worn by Anne Stone in
"The Sound of Silence".
Straker tells Clark that he's from Boston. Presuming this is
the truth, this is the first we've heard of Straker's place
of origin other than being American.
In this episode, Straker mentions Skydiver 3 (Foster also
mentions "all Skydivers" and Colonel Lake later
mentions Sky 4), seeming to confirm that there are
multiple Skydiver vessels. We also see Skydiver 3 here,
though only Skydiver 1 is ever seen in any other episode of the series.
As Clark walks through the torn open fence at 14:58 on the
DVD, a shadow passes alongside the fence from the interior
side; it must have been a member of the production crew
moving out of the way before the camera pans over in that
At 19:57 on the DVD, a number of earth-moving vehicles
Caterpillar are seen.
At 21:28 on the DVD, there appears to be an issue of
magazine on the coffee table behind Linda.
In the executive's office, the scene outside the window at
21:32 on the DVD is the same one seen through Collins'
apartment window in "The Man Who Came Back."
Captain Lauritzen's apartment appears to simply be a redress
of Collins' apartment set from
"The Man Who Came Back".
Mason seemingly absorbs the skin of the fingertips of
Captain Lauritzen's left hand on his right one, leaving
bloody patches on Lauritzen's fingers. But this would
seemingly create reversed fingerprints (and on the wrong
hand!), so it shouldn't work on SHADO's computer scan;
yet it does!
In this episode, Skydiver 3 is seen docked at an underground
At 24:27 on the DVD, Linda is clearly rolling down her car
window manually, yet it makes an electric hum as if it was
At 29:00 on the DVD, indentations from Mason's fingers are
seen in the steel door he forced open. But they weren't
there a few seconds earlier when he actually forced the door open and
At 34:01 on the DVD, why did Linda lock the doors of her car
such that she has to unlock them now as she leaves her
apartment building? The windows are clearly fully open!
Notice that she places her left hand around the open
windowsill of the door.
The apartment building of Linda Simmons appears to be called
Albion (which is an ancient name for the island of Great
Straker implies that a UFO left in Earth's atmosphere for
more than about 48 hours will start to disintegrate.
Were these shots (at 41:47 and
In SHADO HQ at 43:41 on the DVD, it can be seen that there is no
corridor to the right or left for Foster to be walking from!
The aliens have attempted to have Straker killed several
times in the series, so why doesn't Clark, while under their
thrall, kill him when he has the chance? He just leaves
Straker unconscious in his car with a message that SHADO
must cease a number of its operations.
