  • Actor-Shared Background:
    • Laurel is a Mexican native who also speaks English and French, just like Karla Souza.
    • Wes is mixed-race, with a black mother and a white father just like Alfred Enoch.
    • Conrad Ricamora is openly gay, just like character Oliver.
  • Bland-Name Product: The "Altafena" search engine, which sounds rather like old-timey engine Altavista.
  • Fake American: Alfred Enoch (Wes) is British and in fact started his acting career in the Harry Potter films. Karla Souza (Laurel) is a Mexican native who spent some of her childhood in Aspen and France (and is likewise tri-lingual), and this is her US TV debut.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • The night of the murder is called "The Night of the Flying Cheerleader" by Entertainment Weekly recaps and fans of the show. Almost every episode in the first season features a cheerleader doing an air flip.
    • Entertainment Weekly also gives a nickname for the night Annalise gets shot: "The Night of the Fancy Mansion."
  • Life Imitates Art: For much of the time Laurel was pregnant in season 4, actress Karla Souza was as well. Karla's pregnancy was not confirmed until her daughter was born, and Laurel was shown pregnant back in season 3, keeping this from being a Written-In Infirmity. But it's an amazing coincidence, that probably made costuming Laurel in season 4 simpler.
