As the rebels prepare to setup base on the new planet, a previously unseen menace makes its presence known. In the face of this threat, Kanan and Ezra prepare themselves for a mission to stop the Inquisitors.
- The small shelled creatures in the episode are called 'dokma'.
- The larger spider-like creatures are called 'krykna spiders.'
- The krykna spider creatures are based on Ralph McQuarrie's artwork of enormous arachnids found in the swamps of Dagobah.
- Zeb's use of the word "bogans" reflects the Lasat tendency to use the original (scripted) names for the Force. Ashla is the Light Side and Bogans is the Dark Side.
- In the opening sparring scene, we see lightsabers for the first time on screen set to 'training mode' which results in a dimmer shine, different sound, and upon contact, stings and doesn't cut or burn.
