- This is the fourth of nine episodes to deal with two separate cases.
- Scenes for the episode were filmed at the defunct Sybil Brand Institute, an all-women Los Angeles County jail, which is infamous for housing cult member Susan Atkins and Whitewater controversy figure Susan McDougal. A perfect replica was designed for one of the actual jail's cell blocks and used for some scenes. The opening scene also featured a real-life Department of Corrections prison bus, which was rented by the production crew and given a different signage.
