With the magical folk in the US being cataloged and relocated to a “safe” place, Buffy and her friends will have to decide if they will be divided... Or if they will try to run. With Slayers being recruited to help police the magical folk, escaping might not be so easy.
- Giles forges a human certification according to his physical appearance; as he had stated in I Wish, Part One, he was having difficulties with the law proving to be "a legally dead middle-aged librarian."
- Dawn doesn't need a human certification to hide her supernatural identity as the Key, made a normal girl in every way the Order of Dagon could, as stated in "Out of My Mind." According to Willow, "that spell died with the monks."
- Giles remembers his time as a Sunnydale High School faculty member, his profession until "Graduation Day, Part Two."
- Jordan tells Buffy to "go back to waitressing," her profession in Season 9 until Apart (of Me), Part Three.
- With great effort, Spike was able to flip over a car with his bare hands; he had previously tried to convey his envy that new vampires were able to effortlessly do so in New Rules, Part Two.

Behind the Scenes
- The variant cover features a "deleted scene" from the issue, written by Christos Gage and art by Rebekah Isaacs.
- For the variant cover script, Gage suggested Giles' "ridiculous" clothes to be picked from "22 Times Justin Bieber's Clothes Made No Sense" Cosmo article. The final art was inspired by the first outfit of the list.
- The opening scene is comparable to the role reversal from "Welcome to the Hellmouth", in which both scenes reveal the demon is not the one expected (Darla and Edward Satyros).
