Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ray performs "why" at the venue


  • Dylan now believes in reincarnation, although he has previously derided his mother for the same. This could be a result of his near death experience – a quest to find meaning in his life at the moment – or it could be a goof from the writers' side.
