This page is the reference list for the episode "Dead Bear Walking". Feel free to add the suitable shout-outs, allusions and asides which utilize elements of film, pop-culture, music or similar from the episode to the proper section.
The title is a play on the "Dead Man Walking" concept of the convicted criminal's last journey to execution.
While being filmed by Lauren, Shawn introduces himself and Gus, who he claims is named "Radio Star", then goes on to say that he's "afraid [her] video will kill him". This is a reference to the song "Video Killed the Radio Star", a 1979 song by the Buggles.
This also (arguably) foreshadows Gus' own role in "Dead Air".
