- During a conversation between Gideon, Reid, and Detective Charlotte Russet, the former two mention the "stranger danger" (commonly known as "Don't talk to strangers") program that was widely shown in public schools. Reid mentions it taught children about a "scary man", ignoring the fact that most child abductions and harm are not due to strangers, but instead by persons known to the child, resulting in children and others being misinformed about the risk of stranger abduction, leaving an entire generation of children unaware that strangers are only a fraction of the offenders.
- Key parts of the case were taken from an unspecified case James T. Clemente, then the show's BAU consultant, worked on during his time with the unit.
