- With Madison's death:
- Alicia is the last surviving member of the Clark family.
- Alicia is the last character who appeared in the pilot episode that is confirmed to be alive.
- Alicia, Daniel, and Strand are the only characters from Season 1 confirmed to be alive.
- Alicia is also now the longest-living character in Fear The Walking Dead.
- This is the last episode to credit Kim Dickens first, and Lennie James last in the main cast bill.
- The episode title is a reference to Madison's final words "no one's gone till they're gone".
- The intro shows Althea's SWAT truck and some people camping around a fire, referring to the ending of the episode when Alicia, Luciana and Strand told what happened to Madison and the Dell Diamond community.
- Its revealed that between the destruction of the Gonzalez Dam and the founding of the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium community, Madison met Althea and their encounter inspired Madison to form the community. Al never knew Madison's name nor did Madison tell her kids about Al out of shame for her behavior during the meeting.
- The full story of the fall of the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium is revealed with the story being labeled "Madison" by Al. The fates of the community's residents and Madison are revealed along with how Alicia's group survived.
- In Talking Dead, it was confirmed that one of the tapes in Althea's truck labeled "Abe/Doctor" was an interview of Abraham Ford and Eugene Porter, revealing that Althea encountered them before they met the Survivors.
- Naomi is revealed to be yet another alias. She tells John Dorie that her real name is in fact June.
- Morgan references events from "What's Your Story?" with Rick Grimes being the man telling him that he would find people again no matter how hard he tried to isolate himself.
- Madison tells Althea that she got separated from her group at a Big Spot. This is the same store that was shown in the episode "30 Days Without An Accident" of the main show.
- This also means that Big Spot is a chain store spanning from at least the southeast coast to the Midwest of the The United States of America.
- While the dialogue makes it sound like Madison's sacrifice may have enabled some of the other survivors to escape as Alicia's group talks about Madison sacrificing herself so "they could get away, so we could get away", Talking Dead's In Memoriam confirms the deaths of Cole and the other stadium residents who are listed as "Cole & The Gang".
- Further discrepancies over their fate are shown in the "Present", when, on the premise they did indeed die, their vehicles, which would have been burnt out, are absent from outside the stadium.
- When Alicia describes Strand saving her life, he is shown fighting a burning walker and then in the present touching a burn scar on his hand. Presumably he got the scar while saving Alicia's life from the walker.
- Despite the fact that Mel steals the Land Rover in the flashbacks, Alicia's group is shocked to discover it in the possession of the Vultures in "Just in Case".
- Despite the fact that the caravan is stated to have been overrun and destroyed by the time Madison leads the herd into the stadium, the people standing in the back of one of the trucks in the caravan are clearly visible and alive when Madison leads the herd away.
- The bolt is locked back on Al's AR-15, then closed, then locked back, when Morgan and Naomi are going to the infirmary.
