    • King Zarkon sends Yurak to kill his nephew Tabor with a sword after it is learned how Tabor's letting the slave escape led to Voltron ruining Zarkon's birthday, statue, and plan.

    • In other episodes, it appears that the Voltron Force members go directly from the numbered elevators to sliding handgrips in their normal clothes, to drop into their Lions in their Voltron Force uniforms. However, in this episode, it is shown that they first drop into a round room with five doors, which presumably lead to changing rooms and a second set of sliding handgrips that lead to the Lions, explaining how they can enter the same numbered elevators time after time, yet occasionally end up at different Lions, as in when Keith went down Elevator 1 to wind up at the Green Lion, instead of his normal Black Lion.
