While this is the 100th episode, this episode has a lot of references to earlier seasons, such as a reference to the first scene of the whole series and Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) first walker kill (this episode shows an identical walker and identical place). It also has a reference to Carol's (Melissa McBride) famous flower obsession "Look at the flowers" (She looks at a flower drawing on a wall beside her).

After the opening credits, there is a scene with Carl (Chandler Riggs) stopping the van he's driving to look for gas. The scene plays out exactly like the very first scene of the series, with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) looking for gas, too. It then continues with Rick meeting Carl, where a dead girl shows up as a walker. The actress playing that walker is Addy Miller. She was also the one playing the "little girl"-walker, that Rick shot in the pilot that aired in 2010.
