  • The recap of this episode showed the opening of the crate and Grunchor going underground as seen in the previous episode, but the beginning of this episode also showed this. (00:23)
  • Upon exiting the crate, Grunchor made a couple noises that sounded like the Dragonzord. (01:03)
  • Following Grunchor’s release on Terra Venture, the Rangers told Stanton of the “thousands” of slaves they’d seen, though it seems that this must have been an exaggeration. (01:41)
  • As Grunchor burrowed down a road, numerous white Earthen compact cars (not the Terra Venture cars) were parked on the wrong side of the road. (02:04)
  • The car that Grunchor appeared in front of in the “highway tunnel” was also an Earthen car. (04:03)
  • Red Ranger referred to the Galaxy Quasar Launchers as “Quasar Launchers”. (04:29)
  • Why Mike thought that splitting up to cover more ground was a good idea while only having one scanner is unknown. (07:44)
  • The scanner had a different design upon hitting the ground. (07:57)
  • Despite evacuating all underground areas, the subway was still running. (08:05)
  • Pink Ranger referred to here Galaxy Quasar Launcher as “Quasar Launcher”. (08:30)
  • The Red Ranger and Magna Defender’s sidearms were suddenly on their right sides for a few shots. (09:26)
  • Upon landing on top of the Lion Galactabeast, Red Ranger was in Power Up mode, despite not being so in the previous scene when summoning the Galactabeasts; the other Rangers were later shown to be in Power Up mode also. (12:16)
  • When armored Mike powered up Defender Torozord to fight giant Grunchor in the Lost Galaxy, Torozord posed with a gold battle axe, the Defender Axe, of unknown origin. (12:49)
  • As the Powered Up Galaxy Megazord and Defender Torozord approached, giant Grunchor was standing amidst burning forest. (14:08)
  • The launches and formations of Stratoforce and Centaurus were shown in splitscreen, even though the two launches showed conflicting views of Zenith. (15:00)
  • After the Defender Torozords Defender Axe attack didn’t work, neither Mike, the Magna Defender, nor the Torozord were seen again in this episode. (17:21)
