Storyline

When more than two dozen people die from spontaneous combustion, the footage shows the responsible, David Robert Jones.

Trivia

The music at the beginning of this episode (when the guy is getting coffee and then going down the escalator) is the muzac version of Billy Idol's "Eyes Without a Face." See more »

Goofs

When Olivia takes Jessica's phone back, the camera shows that the background of the iPhone's lock screen is Jessica's daughter. Before the camera zooms into the phone, there is the home page of the phone, not the lock screen. Also, the lock screen would normally have a panning highlight animation over the ''slide to unlock'' text. On this scene however, the highlight is frozen over the word unlock. Which reveals that the screen is actually a snapshot of a lock screen. Perhaps in order to delete the carrier name from the screen, which is also missing. See more »

"Brave New World: Part 1" seems to be the epilogue of the saga of the villain David Robert Jones. Poor Walter trying to convince Nina Sharp and his friends that William Bell visited him at the Saint Claire's. And Astrid, what will happen to her? My vote is eight.
