America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
Actor Rotimi Paul rode the New York City public subway to his audition for the role of Skeletor in full costume makeup.
The Architect - Dr. Updale:
Please don't tell me your sending mercenaries into the island disguised as purgers?
In one scene an uninjured Dolores looks out of Nya's intact apartment window. In the next scene the window is shattered and Dolores' arm appears to have been grazed by a bullet. This jump is explained by the deleted scene included in the Blu-ray release: Skeletor was hiding in Nya's apartment (hence the "fresh" blood Dolores notices on the floor), inside the closet. When he jumps out and tries to kill Nya, there's a confrontation between him and Isaiah, which leads to Skeletor flying through the window.
SPOILER: The first mid-credits scene is a newscast expressing the success of the Purge, and how as easily as next year, there could be a "nationwide Purge," thus setting the stage for the films set later.
