    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Just exactly how can an entire city that has been ripped up from the Earth in a vague diamond shape be inserted back in the wrong direction? The artists draw the chunk of Earth in such a way that it can only be reinserted easily back in one direction. Plus, even if the city was reinserted in the right direction, there is still various problems with plumbing, electric, and gas lines.

        Also, how was food shipped to those people trapped inside? No Earth vehicles or weaponry were strong enough to penetrate the force field.

      • At the end of the episode, Shredder doesn't seem too upset that Dr. Chapman gave Baxter an upgrade without, as far as we know, approval from him.

      • Stretches of the imagination not withstanding, how can Dr. Chapman just grab Baxter's bare brain, with an ungloved, unsterilized hand, lug it around, which causes it to change shape during movement (Check the animation.) and NOT cause brain damage to Stockman?

    • QUOTES (2)

    • NOTES (8)

      • Prologue Narrator: Unnamed reporter

      • Villains: Shredder, Hun, Stockman, Dr. Chaplin, Karai, Mousers 2.0

      • The words "kill" and "dead" were said--directly--this episode, rather then use synonyms.

      • Hun and Stockman aren't exactly friends, but they are no longer enemies, work together and are both being duped and are doing the same thing about it. Shredder and Hun aren't getting along anymore, Hun is like Stockman... a failure.

      • First time Hun suffers consequences at Oroku Saki's hands

      • By the end of the episode, it seems that the city of Beijing is now facing the wrong direction when it is returned to terra firma.

      • Professor Honeycut returns in this episode as a partial core consciousness download.

      • Baxter gets yet another new body in this episode. A humanoid configuration without a physical head; where its head should be is the hologram projection of Baxter's human head that was also used on Mark II and III of the jar containing the remains of his nervous system. His brain is now stored in the chest. Stockman changes bodies more often than the Doctor on Doctor Who!
