- This episode is set in 2018, 6 years after the War In Mystic Falls. The reason for the time jump is to explore wholly new territory and essentially "revamp" the series. A previous version of season 5 also had "Revamp" as the premiere episode's title and also featured a retooling of the series.
- Katherine does not appear in this episode.
- The Evers family has also been resurrected and purged of the Shadow soul pathogen. They now serve as the police force of Mystic Falls.
