Allusions[edit | edit source]

  • The title of this episode is taken from the 1993 psychological thriller film The Vanishing starring Kiefer Sutherland, which was a remake of a 1988 Dutch film by the same name. It follows the pattern of season two of titling all of their episodes after horror movies. Both the movie and this episode deal with characters being buried alive.
  • Maggie Duval is shown placing and receiving notes from Brandon James inside of a knot of a tree in both the flashback sequences and the normal timeline. This is reminiscent of the characters of Scout and Boo Radley from the 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
