  • After the five kids had been buying large amounts of ice cream for the Aquitian Rangers, the owner of the ice cream truck eventually asked young Katherine with annoyance if he could please go now, then he put up a “sold out” sign when she okayed it; why a merchant would be upset by his products being purchased is unclear. (04:28)
  • Rita claimed to see a twisted look in Zedd’s eyes as he devised a plan, but Zedd wore a red visor that covered any eyes he might have had. (08:14)
  • Merrick the Barbaric seemed to have the same body as Incisorator. (09:48)
  • Though the lake had been turned purple by the Barbaric Brothers’ poison, the purple coloring weren’t present in any shots of the lake except in shots of the Aquitians. (10:17)
  • To get the force field generator from Rito, young Tommy asked if anyone was up for a game of tag, and when young Aisha tagged Tommy and made him “it,” the object of the game was for the others to try to catch him, but the kids didn’t seem to be able to make up their minds whether they should be chasing after or fleeing from Tommy. (12:15)
  • After the Barbaric Brothers had been destroyed, no mention was made of the poison in the lake, but there was still purple goo on the ruined generator device. (18:04)
