When the group of friends is discussing memories at the dinner party, part of the conversation is an implicit reference to the "Memory Wars" of the 1990s, when a battle ensued between different groups of psychotherapists and members of the public, with some cases of "planted memories" (particularly of incest or other sexual transgressions) surfacing. This led to many debates in psychiatric circles in North America and Europe over how memory works and to what degree organic memory could be relied upon to discern truth, particularly as time went on. It appears that this theme was at least part of the inspiration for the episode.

This episode revolves around the ability to see memories. The main characters name is Jonas (Tom Cullen). This is an interesting similarity to the book and movie The Giver (2014) in which the main characters name is Jonas and he is assigned to receive memories.
