Notes and Trivia
- David revealed that his son's first name was Nathan. Previously, he was simply known as "Miller".
- In Season 4 Episode 12 "Chosen", he put his son Nathan's name in the lottery instead of his own "I want to give him the best chance". When Skaikru was gassed, despite following the list Clarke previously made, Kane honored his wish and kept Nathan in the bunker while sending David out.
