YMMV: Rule 34
- Genius Bonus: Mild example: One scene has an official in a mass video teleconference with various government officials from other countries. The one American's signal is originating from Baltimore, Maryland. Those unfamiliar with American geography might not realize that Baltimore is across the river from Washington, D.C.
- The National Security Agency is also in Baltimore.
- Jerkass Woobie: John Christie, aside from being a very cold-blooded manipulator of people who has no problem killing when ordered to, had a troubled childhood, to say the least, and suffers crippling paranoid attacks when he's unable to take his medication.
