This is the first episode that was actually shot on location, the location being, of course, Las Vegas.

Wanda at E!Online reports that Charlie's affair was going to be with a man, but the writers changed the gender of his affair at the last minute so that the show's first gay character wouldn't be introduced in a negative light.

I just realized that Ken Olin, a frequent director of Alias episodes, plays David McNeil, but is never in the credits for it.

Gadgets: Razor prism, which will cut into a fiberoptic cable and allow access without interrupting the data stream and setting off alarms.
