  • Though they are unnamed in this episode, the Axis of Anarchy makes its first appearance.

  • Valkerie is the only member of the Axis of Anarchy who is not named in this episode.

  • The Finn Smulders website mentioned in this episode was actually created, and features modeling pictures of Bladezz amongst graphics of butterflies, fairies, pink bunnies, and a pink elephant, and more.

  • This episode marks the first appearance of Dena, Bladezz's sister. The actress, Tara Caso, is Vincent Caso's real-life sister.

  • Although the entire Guild is together for the first time, they are not all clearly in the same shot. They would appear in the same shot in the season finale "Boss Fight".

  • The Guild actress Michele Boyd has confirmed that when Riley calls Zaboo a "bad horse", it is a direct reference to the Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog character Bad Horse, a super-villain equine.

Allusions (6)

  • Instead of the normal theme music, this episode uses the theme from the Halloween horror movie series.

  • In this episode, Codex mentions the poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost (although she can't remember its title).

  • As Codex and Zaboo find Vork's house, Zaboo sees someone on the street, raises his hand in a fist above his head and says "Black power!" which was the political slogan of the Black Panthers during the 1960s and 1970s.

  • After a hug from Codex, Zaboo gets a little "excited" and tells Codex that he "schwings" for her. "Schwing!" was the catchphrase used by Dana Carvey and Mike Myers in the Saturday Night Live skits and resulting Wayne's World movies when one or both of them would see a hot girl and "pop a boner."

  • Zaboo: Help me Codex-Wan. You're my only hope. This is a reference to Princess Leia's line to Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

  • After Bladezz cuts his internet connection, Vork tells him that he's going to "Vork-tanamo Bay", an allusion to Guantanamo Bay, the US detainment facility in Cuba.
