Title

In keeping with the title scheme of the second arc, this episode's title spins off another work of literature: Through the Looking-Glass. This is a sequel to Alice in Wonderland, a book that has been connected to Artemis in several ways throughout the series: she has a big poster of an illustration from the story on her bedroom wall, her sister's moniker was taken after a character from the book and her origin story was told in two tie-in comics titled after elements from the book, "Rabbit Holes" and "Wonderland". Artemis is seen reading the book in the first flashback and she quotes a passage from it in the end credits scene. In a more literal sense of sorts, it can refer to Artemis watching her sister interrogating Onyx and Cassandra Savage through a monitor screen.

Continuity

  • This episode picks up immediately where the previous one ended.
  • Garfield has returned from his trip to Mars. He was last seen in "Involuntary" when he was still there. He's still reeling from the loss of Superboy, which also took place in that episode.
  • The flashback of Artemis and Jade follows up on that of the previous episode, in which Jade ran away from home.
  • Jade tacitly alludes to Wally's death in "Endgame" when talking to Artemis about her new boyfriend.
  • The killing of Olympia Savage in "Evolution" is mentioned again.
  • Cassandra says Lady Shiva sent out Manta Troopers a few weeks ago and that's how they figured out Tigress was leading the Team. This was seen in a still shot in the previous episode.
  • The music Artemis was listening to in her car in the previous episode is revealed to be from Superboy Fan Memorial.
  • Cassandra's line to Rictus "Do you really believe you have what it takes to bring down the daughter of Vandal Savage?" echoes her father's line to Kid Flash in "Coldhearted", "Do you really think you have what it takes to survive Vandal Savage?".
  • Cheshire reminds Black Spider she was once her boss, which we got to see in "Infiltrator".
  • Black Spider alludes to Cheshire betraying the League of Shadows for "a guy", which took place sometime around May 26, 2014 and was documented in Red Arrow's journal #6 from Young Justice: Legacy.

Trivia

  • End credits scene: Kraig is at Superboy's fan memorial as Artemis recites a passage from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There.
  • This is the first episode containing the name of a character in the title.

Goofs

Cultural references

  • The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe is seen in a stack of books on Artemis's bedside table when Jade sneaks through the window. This book has appeared in one episode of each season insofar: in "Homefront", "Satisfaction" and "Unknown Factors".
  • Jade's meet-up code "We're all mad here" is a line from Alice in Wonderland, uttered by her namesake character, the Cheshire Cat. While the follow-up line "Mad as Hatters" is not from the novel, it alludes to the Hatter, another character from the novel, popularly known as the Mad Hatter.
  • Jade's line "And your little dog too" is a reference to The Wizard of Oz when the Wicked Witch of the West threatens Dorothy.
  • The book Jade gives Artemis in the flashbacks, Soh Dah (Dumb Luck), is a 1936 novel by Vietnamese novelist Vũ Trọng Phụng which satirizes the late-colonial Vietnamese middle classes.
