This is one of the few holiday episodes of Jem, and the holiday is Midsummer.

Jem and the Holograms are participating in a festival of mythology.

Raya thinks Greece is one of the most romantic countries in the whole world. Infact she seems very excited whenever Jem and the Holograms travel outside the US, like Mexico and England.

Jerrica and Rio break up.

Another example of how Rapture likes to have fun at other peoples expense, and she's not so much into romance.

The song "Destiny" by the Stingers, is the only Stingers song where Rapture and Minx can be heard singing lead vocals.

Rio thinks Riot is a creep, a clown and a fool.

Spoiler: According to Synergy, what Rio and Riot like about Jem is that she knows how to relax and have fun. And what Rio is attracted to about Jerrica is her inner self, and it will always shine through her outward appearance.

Spoiler: Rio thinks Jem is alot of fun but that Jerrica is twice the woman Jem is.

The song "Can't Get My Love Togheter" by Jem and the Holograms is re-used. Previously appeared in the episode "Broadway Magic".

At the concert at the end, Shana is the only Hologram who doesn't get a new outfit.
