Trivia

Brad Dourif's appearance in the role of Thomas Nash, the presumed Clairvoyant, is likely an homage to the X-Files episode "Beyond the Sea," in which Dourif played a convict with questionable psychic abilities. See more »

Goofs

During the deduction scene when Agent Coulson was inspecting the pistol magazines and found that 5 bullets were missing from 1 magazine while 1 bullet was missing from the tracer, the reality should have been 7 bullets missing in total because earlier when 'Agent Blake' was changing magazines he needed to reload a new 'tracking' bullet into his weapon.

This episode was quite intense, aptly named end of the beginning as it signifies the end of a chapter in the show history and the beginning of another, I consider it part one of the epic Turn, Turn, Turn saga, it sets up the conflict well and starts the doubting game real strong... the writing for this one is really good when you catch all the small clues and subtle hints.
