  • Pop calls Luke Cage "Power Man", a reference to his long-time alias in the comics.
  • At the end of the episode, the couple at Genghis Connie's offer to pay Luke for his services, but Luke tells them that he's not "for hire." This could be a reference to the Heroes for Hire, a group in the comics that Luke Cage is well-known to be part of.
