Origin of the Title
The title of this episode could be a nod to the computer term Legacy. A legacy system is an old method, technology, computer system, or application program, "of, relating to, or being a previous or outdated computer system." Often a pejorative term, referencing a system as "legacy" often implies that the system is out of date or in need of replacement but is too widely implemented to do so.
It could also double a nod to Nathan Ingram's death and what he would leave behind for his son to inherit.
