    Showrunner Jonathan Nolan stated that he knew Ramin Djawadi, the composer of the show, ever since he worked with him on his brother's Batman Begins, where Ramin did additional music for Hans Zimmer. Nolan described Ramin as "unbelievably talented", and he said that sometimes when they decided to use a song in the show, Ramin would come with an original piece he composed and Jonah had to say "Sorry, Ramin's s**t wins again!". Later Jonathan chose Ramin Djawadi as the composer of his HBO project, Westworld.

    Finch generally uses fairly identifiable bird-based or bird related aliases with the first name Harold (Harold Wren, Crane, Crow, Quail, Gull, Swift and Mr. Partridge) but has used non-bird names including Arthur Bellenger, Thomas Paine, Dr. Tillman, Lucas Bennett, and Walt Trowbridge. The alias Norman Burdett could be considered bird-based (bird-ett). In Season 2, during John's interrogation, Finch's alias is "Howard French", which is not a bird name, although based on Reese's former profession and the likelihood of capture and torture, choosing phonetically similar aliases can be very helpful should the need to use them arise. In season 3, episode 21, "Beta," the grave site his fiancé visits has a name plate with the name Harold Martin. At first glance, this would not seem to be a bird related name, but it actually is. There are many species of Martin around the world, including a very common bird in North America, the Purple Martin, and another from South and Central America, the Gray-breasted Martin, and many others.
