  • The names written on the memory wall corresponded to the filming of each death scene in "JSS." With this being said, John D. Ross' character is Dan.
    • Similar to how the recurring extras killed off in "JSS" got their names, many of the stunt people who portrayed Alexandrians killed by the Wolves were named based off the first letter of their real name, such as Dan and John D. Ross.
