Dorothy appears in this episode wearing silver slippers not RUBY slippers. The original books had Dorothy wearing silver slippers but the producers of the movie, The Wizard of Oz wanted something more flashy for the new colour format so they changed them to Ruby slippers. MGM still holds the rights to changes to the original story so ruby slippers couldn't be used. (Also any witch portrayed can't be the same colour green as the one in the movie)
An older Dorothy Gale makes an appearance and is played by Teri Reeves. Her younger counterpart was originally played by Matreya Scarrwener.
Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West, learns that her birthday is April 15. Traditionally, in the United States, this is the day when federal and state income taxes are due, making it (arguably) the most unpopular day of the year.
First appearance of Zelena in 5B after being absent for four consecutive episodes.
Hades mentions that his older brother is Zeus, when according to Greek mythology, Hades is the oldest son of Chronos.
The earrings that Zelena wears in Oz when speaking with Hades are Kendra Scott's Jordy Ear Jackets in Mirror Rock Crystal.
The object/animal/person in this episode is Munchkins. The card features the forest background, but the color is red instead of blue to reflect the Underworld.
During the flashback where Hades meets Zelena for the first time, he says "Please, allow me to introduce myself", which is the opening line of The Rolling Stones "Sympathy for the Devil".
The name of the munchkin Zelena destroys is "Boq," which is the same name of the student in "Wicked" who eventually becomes the Tin-man.
