Mutant-draining, pterodactyl-man Sauron is persuaded into capturing Storm by Zaladane, the high priestess of Savage Land Sun God Garokk, unaware of her ulterior motives for unleashing the mutant's full potential.
Beast/Dr. Henry "Hank" McCoy
Wolverine/James "Logan" Howlett
Cyclops, Gambit, Jean Grey and Professor X do not appear in this episode.
This episode marks the continuation of events concerning Sauron and the Savage Land, last seen in last season's "Reunion (2)".
The control screen in the jet-craft Karl Lykos uses to leave the Savage Land (which was left there by Magneto), lists the destinations of Los Angeles, Houston, New York City, and Asteroid M, which will be introduced in season 4's "Sanctuary (1)".
This is the first time Beast wears his special field-unit backpack, which acts as a research kit, scanner, and defensive mechanism.
This episode has a very involved final shot, of "To", "Be", and "Continued" appearing separately in light-blue over a black screen, with lightning effects throughout, eventually destroying the final word.
Why did Sauron have the Fall People slaves rebuild the citadel, when he was the one who self-destructed the original one? And how were they able to rebuild it exactly as the old one looked without blueprints or anything?
When Zaladane zaps Sauron with the Garokk amulet, the footage is very shakey.
Jubilee: Can I please have a scorecard so I can tell the good extinct animals from the bad ones?
Beast: (to the dinosaur who tried to eat Logan) Your taste is excellent, but your manners are appalling!
Rogue: I'll take a look-see! (flies upward)
Wolverine: (sniffs) I'll take a smell-see.
Rogue: I had my fill of that Savage Land the first time 'round.
Wolverine: Well, next time Storm's kidnapped, I'll make sure they take her someplace nice.
Wolverine: Hurry, kid! We ain't got all day!
Jubilee: Who died and made him Cyclops?
Beast: Rogue, Storm, we have a problem. I believe the appropriate aphorism is... a "blast from the past."
Beast: To paraphrase Isaac Newton, what goes up must invariably come down.
Beast: My friend! Why the foreboding countenance?
Wolverine: Starin' at skeletons makes me nervous.
Jubilee: Well, it makes ME bored! What could be more yawn-inspiring than a zillion-year old canary?
The "Fastball Special" manuever first used in this episode (involving Beast boosting Wolverine into a leap) was made standard in the comics by Wolverine and Colossus.
Animation Company: AKOM Productions.
There is a brief scene of Wolverine commenting on Jean Grey being "studied like a lab rat" on Muir Island, indicating that this episode was meant to be set after season 5's "No Mutant Is An Island", which was intended to air as an epilogue to the Phoenix Saga, but was delayed two years due to animation problems.
In the script stage, the video release, and some airings (such as Toon Disney, but not ABC Family) this episode was entitled, "Savage Land, Savage Heart."
Jubilee: You heard the man, Barney!
Jubilee's comment to the tyrannosaurus rex in the Savage Land, is in reference to PBS's child-friendly dinosaur, called Barney.
Sign: New York City Comic Con, Fri Sat Sun, Nuff Said!
A sign appears above Central Park, promoting an NYC comic book convention.
Beast: How bout the Guggenheim for the Magritte exhibit?
Hank wishes to go to the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, to check out the works of René Magritte, the Surrealist painter.
Beast: Ahh, Shakespeare knew so well. How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
The quote, applied by Beast to Jubilee's refusal to continue visiting museums, is from William Shakespeare's King Lear, act I, scene IV.
Beast: To paraphrase Sir Issac Newton... that which goes up, must inverably come down!
Newton is best known for, among other things, developing the theory of gravity.
Rogue: "...Must have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque"
Rogue uses to describe Sauron's seemingly out-of-place demeanor, one of the catch-phrases of Bugs Bunny, which he would always use when his tunnels got him somewhere he didn't expect.
Wolverine:: No blue plate special today!
Logan's comment to the hungry dinosaur is in reference to a common diner-menu item.
