  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: In this episode Gargoyle has a crippled arm, but in the first season the same arm was complete again in Battle of the Meridian Plains (although it is possible that in this episode it was a different gargoyle).

    • Nitpick: How did Gargoyle know to put his crippled arm in the molten metal while Nerissa didn't tell him to do so?

    • Nitpick: How did Trill manage the necklace around Elyon's neck without lifting the braids?

    • Nitpick: How does Taranee manage to stay clean from the food fight?

    • Although the Guardian transformation doesn't change from season 1, Will now has an audible call-out which is: "The Heart."

  • Quotes

    • Will: Now I'm getting Frosted!

    • Taranee: Lesson one, Frost: Never mess with a Guardian's friends!
      Cornelia: And lesson two: Pay close attention to lesson one!

    • Frost: You're still not getting out – not without going through us.
      Hay Lin: You know, I'm totally okay with that!

    • Will: Are you all right?
      Irma: So far, so bad.

    • Irma: So let me get this straight: A guy was walking behind you, and then he kept walking?
      Taranee: Uh… yeah!
      Hay Lin / Irma (sarcastic): Scary…

    • Cornelia: You're choosing Meridian over me?
      Caleb: Try to understand.
      Cornelia: Oh, I understand. I just don't care. It's Blunk I'm really going to miss!
      Blunk: Blondie no worry. Blunk visit Earth soon.
      Cornelia: Great…

    • Yan Lin (dancing): Watch out girls! I'm smokin' tonight!

    • Cornelia: What do you mean you're not coming back to Heatherfield? Wake up rebel leader, the good guys won! You're out of a job.

  • Notes

    • In the European Season 2 opening, Will's energy rune is pink whereas it is orange in the comic-book.

    • This season marks a color change for the Guardians' wings, which have switched from turquoise (first season) to green (second season).

    • The name of Frost's mount, Crimson, is mentioned in this episode for the first time.

    • For this season, the episode titles have a name scheme that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet. The keyword in each title (or some variation of the word) is spoken by a character at least once during the episode.

    • The storyline of Frost stalking Taranee in Heatherfield in this episode is based on issue #13 of the W.I.T.C.H. comic-book, I know Who You Are. As for the storyline of Caleb telling Cornelia he will return to Meridian, it is taken from issue #23, Farewell!

    • Before the US premiere on June 5, 2006 on Toon Disney, this episode aired in Canada on May 21, 2006 on The Family Channel and in the UK on May 29, 2006 on Jetix.

    • In the comics, Nerissa's soldiers are called "Knights of Revenge" and they consist of Tridart the Despair, Ember the Pain, Khor the Destroyer, and Shagon the Hate. In this show, they are called "Knights of Vengeance" and they consist of Miranda (from "The Mogriffs", "The Rebel Rescue", and "The Final Battle"), Gargoyle (from "It Resumes"), Sandpit (from "Ambush at Torus Filney"), Tracker and his dog Sniffer (from "The Labyrinth" and "Return of the Tracker"), Frost the Hunter (from "Framed"), and Raythor (from "The Key"). All of whom have appeared in Season One as enemies of the Guardians and former servants of Phobos.

  • Allusions

    • Nerissa's Knights of Vengeance parallel a group of supervillains known as "The Legion of Doom" from Warner Bros. DC Comics shows Superfriends and Justice League Unlimited.

    • Nerissa's word of power, Quintessence, means fifth essence, or fifth element. Aristotle thought that the heavens were made of this element, also called aether.
