- When Mike is smacking Jesse, Jonathan Banks was really smacking him without holding back, according to Aaron Paul.
- The magenta sweater Walt is wearing is the same color as the teddy bear that falls from the airplane into Walt's pool.
- Jonathan Banks character, Mike, was only introduced to fill a gap created by Bob Odenkirk's absence in the final episode of season 2, as he was filming for another role; Arthur Hobbs on 'How I Met Your Mother'. Mike went on to be credited in 28 episodes, and appears along side Saul in 'Better Call Saul'.
- The photograph on Jane's bedroom wall is a photo of poet Elizabeth Bishop. Bisshop is Vince Gilligan's favorite poet and also her mother's maiden name.
- In the scene where Walt Jr. is in his room receiving money on the donation website, the ding sound is the same as the bell Tuco's uncle uses to communicate.
- David House portrays Walt's oncologist. In a sad twist of irony, his life was cut short on November 27th, 2016 because of cancer. He was 58.
- When Jane Margolis' father is in her room, looking for clothes for her burial, a mural on the wall includes a falling teddy bear. Later on, a teddy bear falls into the Whites' swimming pool.
- The titles of the second season episodes featuring the cold open with the pink teddy bear reveal the ending: "Seven-Thirty-Seven Down Over ABQ".
- Walter White's indirect actions on the show lead to a mid-air collision over his neighborhood in Albuquerque. In 1986, Aeromexico Flight 498 collided with a private plane over the neighborhood of Cerritos, CA. One of the reasons behind the crash was the distraction of the junior air traffic controller handling Flight 498 by another private plane in the area. The air traffic controller's name was Walter White.
- ABQ is the airport code for Albuquerque International Airport, while Donald Margolis works at Albuquerque ARTCC, also called ZAB.
- When Hank is holding up the Walter White donations tub in the DEA office, for a brief moment Walt's mugshot on the tub runs perfect fit into the 'WANTED' display in the background. Foreshadowing that he will be WANTED for the Blue Crystal supply in the South West eventually.

This episode is brilliant. It is a perfect ending to a perfect season.

Breaking Bad is a series that started with a situation at a moment in time. And then, from now on, all went bad, or should I say, all broke bad. But it didn't go down in a mess, everything is built, or broken, slowly and methodologically.

I can only but root for Jessie. The scene in which he cries in Walt's arms is terrifying. It is terribly sad, because Jessie and Jane just had their money in the previous episode and could have left and live a happy life. But there is no such things as a free lunch in life. We always have to pay for what we have done, and the Universe is always there to remind us of that.

Once Walt finally gets the operation he needs and has plenty of money on his side, he loses his wife. Skyler gets that he is involved in activites she doesn't even want to know about and decides to leave the house.
Anna Gunn gives an incredible performance, she really does something extraordinary that is worth any penny of any movie performance. We can see a shift of movie-likes qualities from the big screen onto the tv screen. Because tv series allow for the building of emotions over a much longer period of time.

As for the plane crash one year in the making, this is just pure excellent construction work.

A brilliant ending to a brilliant season.
