[show]All of Reese's aliases have the first name John (John Reese, John Rooney, John Warren, John Anderson, John Wiley, John Campbell, John Randall, and John Hayes) except for his first alias in the pilot (James J. Manzione) and Mission Creep (Tony Miller). He also goes by "Detective Stills" and "Marshall Jennings", having "borrowed" their shield/star somewhat permanently. However, these aliases are usually only used when necessary to gain access to an area or information that would otherwise be much more difficult if not impossible.
- The alias of the secretive John Reese is an homage to Batman's The Riddler (i.e. E. Nigma is made to sound like enigma) as Mr. Reese is made to sound like "mysteries".
- The opening sequence contains one or two scenes from the current episode, always at the point Finch says, "...victim or perpetrator, if your number's up, we'll find you."
