The scene cuts to a woman as she hangs up the phone and picks up Scylla from a table nearby. A man approaches to ask who the caller was, and she answers that it was her son.
- This marks the last appearance of Gretchen Morgan until Prison Break: The Final Break.
- The Sunshine State refers to the new location in Miami (as The Sunshine State is the state nickname for Florida).
- "All in all the endless twists, escapes and gun fights have made for distinctly uninspiring viewing."
