2. In fact, that same case that Victoria was convicted and tortured for was the reason Blue, from the episode "Hated in the Nation," left her job.

Ian Rannoch was Victoria's boyfriend, and helped commit the crimes that got her sentenced to appear on White Bear.

3. The same Victoria appears as one of the possible victims of the #DeathTo trending topic in the same episode.

Although, looking back, a quick death from robo-bees might have been better than being harassed by men in masks for the rest of your (short) life.

9. Yet another news ticker also gives us a clue about the chronology of the Black Mirror universe.

This ticker announces the military program "MASS," which you may recognize from the episode "Men Against Fire." This means that the war on the "roaches" has not yet begun at this point.

11. In the episode "Nosedive," one of the top-rated posts on the social network everyone is obsessed with is from a man named Michael Callow.

14. Most of Yorkie's '80s looks in "San Junipero" are clear references to popular movies and music videos of the time.
