Origin of the Title
- In the context of the characters, as Vera explains, "Brave Traveler" is the meaning of his last name, but also how he sees himself.
- The extension: .asf is a proprietary audio/video format designed for video streaming.
- The Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon watch, which Scott Knowles offers to Tyrell, is a real watch, valued at roughly $1.5 million.
- The painting in the opening scene is by Dominican poet and painter Gilberto Hernandez Ortega. Oretga was a surrealist painter considered one of the finest of his generation. He was born in 1923 and died in 1978.
- The song used at the end of this episode, "Consummation" by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, is also featured in Gone Girl (2014). In both of these instances, it is used in a scene where a character's throat is cut.
- Elliot uses a Multiblue USB Bluetooth dongle on his laptop to type an exploit into the police cruiser.
- "Some Velvet Morning". Recorded by Nancy Sinatra (1967), written by Lee Hazelwood. Plays under the opening credits and Elliot's monologue. At the time of its release, it was regarded as a "druggy, psychedelic" song with an undecipherable meaning.
