References to the Original Charmed
- A Fury appears in this episode. In the original series, the furies were three female demons who targeted evildoers (regardless of how trivial or grand), and transformed one of the Halliwell sisters into one of them to replace the one they'd lost. They teleported in smoke and exhaled deadly smoke to kill their targets.
- Mel learns to harness her power to generate heat. In the comics, Piper developed the power of molecular acceleration 9 years after her powers awoke.
- Maggie learns that her power works by touching something with emotional attachment to the person, just like how Phoebe's power worked.
- Julian Shea who was introduced, shares many similarities with Jason Dean from the original series. Both are rich, work in a managerial role of one of the sisters, and both are romantically linked to said sister.
- This episode deals with the complex father-daughters relationship of the Vera family, much like the original series' episode, "Thank You For Not Morphing", which dealt with the return of the Halliwell's father, after a long absence.
- The episode was watched by 0.65 million U.S. viewers.
- With 34 letters in the title, this is the longest episode title of the series overall.
- The title of this episode is a reference to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", a 1967 American comedy-drama.
- Eric Balfour joins the recurring cast starting with this episode.
Jordan (after an online search): Maggie Vera, you're dead.
