Production NotesEdit



  • This is the first episode that Todd Milliner has written or co-written since coming up with the original idea for Grimm.
  • The title is a reference to the 1926 novel, The Sun Also Rises, written by Ernest Hemingway.
  • The results of the experiments done on Victor Shelley's son are a reference to Frankenstein's monster from Mary Shelley's famous novel, Frankenstein.
  • The Hills & Mazy Cemetery is a reference to Hazy Mills Productions, which is one of the production companies for Grimm, which was formed in 2004 by Todd Milliner and Sean Hayes.
  • The picture of Robert Johansson, whose left arm is used in the experiment by the scientists, is of Bruce Lawson, who has been a key grip for Grimm since season 1.
  • The funeral director is credited as Harold C. Melville, but in the episode, his office door says Harold D. Melville.
  • Melville mentions River View Cemetery, which is the oldest nonprofit cemetery in Portland, founded in 1882.
  • In an exterior shot of Overton Medical Center, a Philadelphia ambulance is seen, rather than a Portland ambulance.
  • Several past and present Grimm crew members are referenced throughout the episode:
    • When Renard looks up Dasha Karpushin in his contacts on his computer, of the names that are seen, George Adams was a production assistant and travel coordinator (seasons 1-3), Ruth Adelman is the supervising sound editor (seasons 3-6), Paul Alary was a set production assistant (seasons 1-2), Danny Alfaro was a production assistant (seasons 1-2), Chris Alley was an electrician and lighting technician (seasons 1-3), Rick Anderson was a camera operator (season 4), Cory Armstrong was a rigging electrician (seasons 3-4), Kara Stanford was a set costumer (season 4), Matthew Karchesky was an original member of the crew's transportation team, Benjamin Kauffman was a set dresser (season 1), Geoff Keller was a construction location foreman (seasons 1-5), Ken Erck was a special effects foreman (season 1-5), Sean Kennedy was an art department buyer (season 1), and Kayla Kilby was a production assistant (season 2).
