  • This episode's title is a quote said by Gwynn Calkussar.
  • Zed sends Vikka after Tobin and locks Gwynn away in isolation.
    • In a later meeting Zed explains that the function of Lu-Qiri rings are actually whistles.
  • Talon's father, Sai-vek Redwan is revealed to have been the original owner of the Meld Box.
  • The symbols that appeared in the maze include an hourglass, a triangle, and a skull.
    • A full hourglass means the beginning while an empty one represents the end.
    • Yindrians were masters at puzzles, traps, and murderous devices which makes it difficult for Janzo and Wren to decipher the codes used in the maze.
    • The triangle is the symbol of fire while the skull is a symbol of sacrifice. The skull lock was a sacrifice, so Janzo had to burn his hand in the fire to open the door.
    • They are trapped in another room with the history of the Yindrian elders written on the walls. Yindria was a human civilization that lived alongside the blackbloods centuries ago. Yindrian is also what the Smith's books were written in.
  • Yavalla infects Gwynn with the hive. It makes Gwynn complacent and binds her to Yavalla. Yavalla can see through Gwynn's eyes, her ears, think in her mind.
