Trivia

Charlie gives the genus and species of the "Skelter beetle" as "Mansohnium Boogliosus." This name is taken from the surnames of Charles Manson and Vincent Bugliosi, respectively the subject and author of the true crime book "Helter Skelter" named after a song by The Beatles. See more »

Goofs

When Mona is first examining the insect she says it is Coleoptera possibly Archostemata (a suborder of the order Coleoptera). Coleoptera is the correct name for the order of insects commonly called "beetles" (which she refers to just after by saying that the airship terminal is an unusual place for "beetles") and have the character trait of "sheathed wings" from which it gets its name. However, the insect she is examining has neither wings nor sheaths for them but is made up of overlapping segments on the back of its exoskeleton more in-line with the order Blattaria commonly called "Cockroaches" and even though this is an alternate universe the meaning of the Greek words koleos, "sheath"; and pteron, "wing", thus "sheathed wing" and "Coleoptera" would probably not have been different.

"You;re not infected, you're pregnant"

... is possibly one of the greatest lines of dialog of all time.

Offered up in this episode of one of the greatest series of all time.

Easily (this penned in 2015) the best work JJ has done so far.

Manages to keep viewers interested in two dimensions at once.

Never saw that before.

The alternate Olive is actually more empathetic than the main character. That is daring. Kudos to the writers. And to Anna Torv for pulling it off.

In fact even Walternate actually seems a more capable person than the regular cast member. Astonishing.

Wondersful episode.
