In the B-story, Hay Lin decided to create for Caleb some new clothes to help him blend in on Earth.

Possible mistakes

  • The key in this episode proper looks different from the key seen in both It Resumes and the flashbacks to the events of that episode in this one.
  • When Will pulled the eel off of Taranee's head, Irma's voice is heard.
  • When Will hugged Hay Lin, her arms passed through Hay Lin's wings.
  • When the girls were talking to Blunk, Irma's skirt was green in one of the scenes.
  • From this episode onwards, Will makes an indistinct and inaudible sound during the transformation sequence. Despite various theories and different interpretations in closed captioning, her call-out remains shrouded in mystery. Candy Milo, who voices Irma Lair, revealed that Kelly Stables, who voices Will Vandom, never made a call-out word for that scene and it was an audio glitch.[citation needed] This was fixed in season 2, in which Will first said "The Heart" and later "Quintessence".

Behind the scenes


  • This episode marks Raythor's only appearance in the first season, as he was later imprisoned in the Abyss of Shadows.
  • This is the only episode in which the girls make certain noises while transforming: Taranee made a startled noise, while Hay Lin and Irma giggled before saying their elements. Only Cornelia just said her element.
  • Irma was imitating Elvis Presley when she said, "Thank you. Thank you very much." This was his main tagline in the 1950s and 60s.
