    SPOILER: The season three subplot in which the LDS Church conspires to buy from Alby an antique letter that seems to be damaging to the church (but which eventually turns out to be a forgery) is a reference to the Mark Hofmann "Salamander letter" scandal of the mid-1980s. Hofmann, himself an ex-Mormon (and a talented forger), "discovered" multiple letters and documents purportedly written by Joseph Smith and other founders of the Church of Latter-day Saints. Some of these documents cast the church or its founders in an unflattering or ridiculous light; the most famous of them, the so-called "Salamander letter," seemed to provide proof that when Joseph Smith had the foundational Mormon revelation, instead of being visited by the angel Moroni, he had actually seen a talking salamander. The LDS church was unable to determine if the letter was authentic, and it was sold for $40,000 to a devout Mormon who intended to donate it to the church to hide it. However, after Mormon critics exposed Hofmann as a forger and the Salamander letter and his other "discoveries" as fakes, Hofmann became desperate and bombed and killed two people, including the man who had purchased the letter. The whole incident was highly embarrassing to the church, which received a lot of criticism for not having been able to discern Hofmann's works as forgeries. As of December 2010, Hofmann is serving a life sentence at the Utah State Prison in Draper.

    The show's fictional fundamentalist group, the "United Effort Brotherhood", is in some ways similar to and was largely inspired by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints whose financial and legal wing is called the "United Effort Plan". The FLDS is one of the most prolific and well-known remaining groups of polygamists claiming to be the successors of the original LDS church.
