So basically we've got to stop a monster bloodhound from tracking the smelliest creature in the universe?
- Main article: /Transcript
Prince Phobos sent the Tracker after Caleb in an effort to recapture the rebel leader. Meanwhile, the girls all tried to go see a movie starring their favorite actor, Vance Michael Justin. But will they be able to save Caleb and defeat an old foe and get to the show on time?
In the B-story, Will was grounded for having bad grades. Hay Lin was also grounded, but not for long. Irma became upset when she found out she had to babysit her six-year-old younger brother Chris, and Yan Lin ended up replacing her.
- In the cinema, Caleb foughts the Tracker in front of the screen. The audience thought the fight was part of the show, with the portal as a special effect. This concept is taken from comic issue 8, in which Will and Cedric disturbed the performance of the singer Karmilla and her band in midair inside the Heatherfield Stadium. It is also notable that, while Karmilla never appeared in the TV series, in O is for Obedience Vance Michael Justin returned, but as a singer instead of an actor.
- "They've picked up the scent again?" was said by Will but heard as Irma's voice.
- At the end of the episode, Cornelia's clothes changed from her princess costume to her normal attire.
- Right after Caleb dives in the portal, the Tracker drops his flail leaving it laying on the stage instead of taking it with him through the portal. When Caleb comes out of the portal, the flail is gone.
Behind the scenes
- Fan discussion of the original broadcasts of this episode at Anime Superhero (formerly Toon Zone). Some episode threads also feature posts by members of the crew that worked on the show, including Andrew Nicholls (Andrewjn) and Justine Cheynet (witchinsider).
- This episode was originally titled "Midnight in the Multiplex of Good and Evil".
- This episode marks the first appearances of Vance Michael Justin (pictured and mentioned only), Chen Lin, Joan Lin, and Chris Lair.
- Hay Lin's father explicitly stated that she is 12 in this episode. This makes her one of the few characters to have an exact age given in the TV series itself.
- Hay Lin's father showed how overprotective he is of her.
- It is revealed that the Tracker is a valuable soldier of Prince Phobos. This episode shows the true strength of the Tracker and Sniffer as, despite everything the Guardians threw at them, they were still able to track Caleb and Blunk.
- This episode marks the first and only time we hear the Tracker speak, as it was deemed later that he was scarier if he remained silent.
