The collar chain for the "Seal of Office" medallion worn by the leader of the Villagein this scene used to hide an assassination-attempt bombincorporates a figure of Saint Andrew, similar to that used by the Grand Lodge of Scotland and a three tower castle, similar to that used by the Grand Lodge of England. The similarity, and the association, is so faint as to barely qualify as an obscure reference to Freemasonry. The use of an eye and pyramid backdrop in the Village council chambers is equally obscure.
