After Flynn takes the plutonium core of the atom bomb, the team seems to worry, as if the slightest vibration will set off a nuclear reaction. The plutonium core in an atomic weapon is inert (sub-critical), until the pressure waves from the conventional explosives in the bomb compress the fissile material to critical density and start the nuclear reaction.

The Special effects on this episode is classy.

Watching this episode I started to examine on which LUT was used while I am using them while my techniques are classified. I couldn't tell Abigail Spencer.

The attire of all four characters fit well on them in that era. Elena Satine who's name is familiar did really well as the mistress of JFK before the Cuban missile crises and his assassination in Dallas, Texas. There's a story behind that scene if her co-star remembers that story.

Like the scene where the countdown started with the atomic bomb in Nevada. The scene looked like it was recolored from a black and white film strip.
