Trivia (3)

  • Trap Jaw shoots the rose and Beast Man accuses him. It's unusual for THIS to happen whereas it would most of the time be the other way around.

  • What are the Kex doing living in a village beneath Rose Mountain, when at the end of "Eye of the Beholder" they agreed to become the guardians of the Sea of Eternity?

  • Why are there other members of the Kex who appear like Garth, when in "Eye of the Beholder" it was explained that he had evolved into that form after being exposed to chemical reactions within the sea of Eternity? The most likely explanation would be that other members of the Kex jumped into the sea themselves to see if Garth was telling the truth, but the episode never explains this.
