This episode's glyphs spell:
This episode featured three Shapeshifters - Senator Van Horn, Thomas Newton, and Ray Duffy - and showed that they could be unwilling to shift into new forms when they got attached to a nice way of life.
The Observer can be seen in the lobby of Massive Dynamic as Fauxlivia, Peter, and Broyles enter the building.
A sign for "Van Horn's Tavern" in 'The Plateau' foreshadows Senator Van Horn's secret and involvement in 'Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?'.
Astrid brings Walter a magazine in 'Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?' with the word "TWINS" on the cover, foreshadowing the plot twist in 'Amber 31422'.
