Plot Overview



  • "Freedom" by Wham!: The song for which this episode is named is "Freedom" by Wham!. The pop group, which includes George Michael, recorded the song for 1984's Make It Big and was written entirely by Michael. The Wham! version does not appear in this episode, however; it is performed instead by a boys' choir.
  • "Here Comes the Sun Again" by M. Ward: The song that plays in the background while Eli is talking with Frank is "Here Comes the Sun Again" by M. Ward. The song was released on Ward's 2005 album Transistor Radio and was also licensed for use in a 2007 Cadillac SRX Crossover advertisement.
  • "Lay Me Down" by Under the Influence of Giants: In the final scene of the episode, "Lay Me Down" by Under the Influence of Giants plays in the background while Eli and Taylor are talking about the hallucinations that he's been having. The song was originally featured on the band's debut self-titled album, released in 2006.
