|“||After watching a spooky horror video, Max becomes increasingly concerned with David's behavior. Is Max just overreacting, or is there actually something wrong with David?||”|
Max, Neil, and Nikki go to Cameron's bomb shelter to watch Dark Reflections, specifically the episode Arrival of the Torso Takers. They watch it for a while, and at one part scream in fear. David walks in, scolds them, and acts very creepy to Max.
The next day, David announces that an "unnamed trio" broke into Gwen's video cabinet and stole a movie. He decides that, starting then, everyone will get 15 minutes counseling with him. He once again looks creepily at only Max, but Neil and Nikki think he is losing his marbles. David takes Space kid first since he's the most special, and it leaves Max skeptical.

- Max is the only one throughout the entire episode to realize that there is something off with David.
- Like Gwen and Neil, David also owns a diary which he labels "My Deepest Darkest Secrets".
- One of his deepest darkest secrets include him telling Gwen he lost her blue pen only to find out it was in his vest pocket the whole time.
- It is also shown that Daniel is capable of mimicking David to the point where he even sounds like him.
- The actors in the VHS the trio watches are James Willems (Dolph's voice actor) and Jason Weight (who helped Joe Nicolosi write season 16 of Red vs. Blue).
- John Cena and Guy Fieri are mentioned by Nikki as best possibilities for alien takeover than David.
- The horror series the trio were watching, Dark Reflections, could be a reference to the anthology series Black Mirror.
- The chips Nikki was eating branded "Layd" is an obvious nod to the well-known chips brand, "Lays".
- Daniel makes a return after the events of "Cult Camp". It is revealed that he didn't die after his consumption of poisoned Kool-Aid due to acquired immunity. However, he has formed lactose intolerance since then.
- Just like his first appearance in "Cult Camp" (and future appearance in "Camp Loser Says What?", Daniel doesn't blink throughout the entire episode.
- The tanktop Bonquisha was seen wearing in "Romeo & Juliet II: Love Resurrected" is seen in David's drawer.
- Max repeatedly tugs at his hair in distress after snooping through "David's" affairs, he's seen doing it again in "Jermy Fartz (episode)" when realizing the arduous task of being well-behaved for the sake of the bet, and again in "Time Crapsules" while worrying about who he's become.
- The fake knife used by Tabii (as Juliette) in the episode "Romeo & Juliet II: Love Resurrected" looks similar to the real knife that Daniel almost uses on Dolph at the end of "Cult Camp". It is also seen again in Daniel's future appearances in this episode and "Camp Loser Says What?".
