  • Notes

    • This episode marks the first (and only) time the kids meet Uncle Zachary in person, and it's a fabulous reveal: He's wheelchair-bound! If you look back at his appearances in previous episodes, you'll notice we've never once seen him standing up! (According to writers Marc Scott Zicree and Michael Reaves, both big comic book fans, this is a nod to Marvel's X-Men.) Observant viewers may have noticed the chair in the video scene where McGuffin confronts Uncle Zach.
