Episode Goofs
During the gym scene in the teaser, Angel's reflection can be seen twice in the mirrors. The first gives away that David Boreanaz is simply standing to the side, waiting for the other actors.

When the Judge assures Angel that Jo's child is under their protection until she comes of age, the camera cuts to a shot Jo, which is obviously being played in reverse.

Cultural References
Pregnant Woman: Some seer, some leader, or some Joan of Arc.

Joan of Arc was a French maiden who led the French armies against the English after claiming to see the Virgin Mary.
