What episode is this?

The one where the social ratings obsessed Lacie (Bryce Dallas Howard) has her own score take a sudden downturn (or nosedive, you might say).

What Easter eggs are there?

There are several callbacks to The National Anthem, the first ever Black Mirror episode where Prime Minister Michael Callow (Rory Kinnear) has to have sex with a pig live on TV.

Firstly, when Lacie is scrolling through her social feed, there’s an update from Callow saying “Just got thrown out of the zoo again :(“. We’re guessing the zookeepers saw the PM pork show…

Oh, and remember when Lacie hitches a ride with a few fans of show Sea of Tranquility? That’s a programme mentioned in The Nation Anthem. The special effects expert called in to the pig, urm, broadcast says he’s worked on an “HBO moon western” called Sea of Tranquility.
