  • Trivia

    • Lee Jordan, from Boyhood's End Parts 1 & 2, returns in this episode (coincidentally, also a two-parter).

    • After doing the math of the fire at Carmen's house, which happened 30 years ago, and the orphanage takes her in at age two, we find Carmen's age to be around 32.

    • According to Ivy, they processed Jordan Lee last year. Meaning that between the past two seasons, only one year has passed.

  • Quotes

    • Avalon: If my daughter had lived, She would've grown up smart and brave. NEVER a thief and coward who runs from the law like you! I don't know where you got this (Avalon points to Carmen's locket) but you never got it from me!

    • Carmen Sandiego: Tonight it's a Carmen Sandiego special: Steak car, car.(Laughs)

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • James Bond (Movies/Novels)

      Zack: Just call me Double Agent 00 Zack! danger is my second language!

      This is a direct allusion to the secret agent 007 James bond.

    • Library of congress

      The library of congress is the oldest federal cultural institution and the largest library in the whole world.

    • Golden Gate Girls School

      Ivy found a sign that said: "Golden Gate girls school" that school doesn't really exist, but it could be an indirect allusion to the Golden Gate Elementary school in San Francisco California.
