Erica's life is finally going great, both personally and professionally. But the fact that December 13th is approaching is weighing heavily on her mind, that date being the anniversary of Leo's death, which is still her biggest regret in life. Leo died at the age of 21 in a barn fire at her grandmother's farm, the fire that appears to be an accident of Leo's own doing.

In this episode, Gary (Erica's father) wears a shirt with a drawing of the Vulcan salute and the Vulcan greeting "Live Long and Prosper" on it. This has a double meaning. Presumably, it means that Gary is a fan of the television series "Star Trek" and its spin-off series and movies. But it is also a reference to Gary's profession; Gary is a rabbi, and the Vulcan gesture was created by Spock actor Leonard Nimoy
, who took the hand motion from a ritual gesture that is a traditional part of a Jewish prayer called the Birkat Kohanim. Nimoy, the son of Orthodox Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine, grew up seeing the gesture performed by his rabbis during synagogue services. See more
