This episode takes place on a weekend.

Nothing falls over Danse in this episode. Although two men fall for her. But Danse doesn't believe in whirlwind romances.

It seems that whenever Danse is with Jem and the Holograms, she gets all the attention instead of any of the Holograms. Perhaps she is considered more beautiful or talented, or is it just that most of the Holograms have love interests?

Shana used to go to summercamp.

Jem and the Holograms are bad at archery, except for Raya. Jem is great at swordmanship though.

Rio says he's rigged pyrotechnics for Jem and the Holograms' concerts for years.

This episode is a "Robin Hood"-like story, Robin Hood is even mentioned by Danse. It also has bits from the "Man in the Iron Mask".
