  • Forager tells Brion and Halo that he's in exile from New Genesis, which happened in the previous episode. Brion sympathizes, as he has also been exiled from Markovia in "Eminent Threat".
  • Artemis bemoans that she misses Mount Justice, the Team's original HQ, destroyed in "Darkest" (by Artemis no less).
  • Forager surmises that Megan, Conner and Artemis are trying to decide what to do with him, to which Brion and Halo retort in unison "They do that a lot". This refers to the previous two episodes, in which the group was doing the same to them.
  • Jefferson mentions Plasmus and Plasma being on mindcontrol devices.
  • Several callbacks are made to the Team's first mission.
  • Halo takes on the civilian name "Violet" because Brion called her that in "Away Mission", after her violet aura manifested to heal her.
  • Miss Martian faints because of Brion's heatwave. Martians' vulnerability to heat has been established in "Denial".
  • Forager mentions meeting Kid Flash in "Away Mission".



  • Oracle says Gabrielle is 16 years old. Having been born August 28, 2002, on August 5, 2018 she would still be 15, though only three weeks shy of her sixteenth birthday.

Unanswered questions


  • Jaqqar Marlo: I don't know any Jaqqar Marlo.
  • Black Spider: I think you do, Jack. See, I've been waiting out here just for you, for hours. Now, I don't begrudge. In fact, I hope you danced up a storm, had a few drinks, kissed a girl. You deserve all that, Jack, because this is your last night on Earth.

  • Black Spider: Why do they always run? Do I need better quips?

  • Megan: I downloaded our language into your brain.
  • Forager: Miss Martian taught Miss Martian's language to Forager?
  • Conner: Everything but the pronouns apparently.

  • Brion: So, you're an alien? I can't believe I'm meeting a real alien.
  • Megan: Uh, hello? I'm from Mars. And Conner's half Kryptonian.
  • Brion: Yes, of course, but Forager is a real alien.
  • Forager: Brion is the alien to Forager.
  • Brion: (chuckles) Well, you would think that, wouldn't you?

  • Halo: We're on a mission. A rescue mission, correct?
  • Brion: Yes, of course. But, Halo, please.
  • Halo: And that's my mission name. Halo. I like it, but I think I need a secret identity name, too. Like how Artemis is Tigress on a mission, but Artemis at home.
  • Forager: Forager is Forager.
  • Halo: All right. But at home, I think I'll be Violet. It's what you called me, Brion.
  • Brion: What? When?
  • Halo: You don't remember?
  • Brion: Violet.
  • Halo: No, I'm Violet at home. Here, I'm Halo.

  • Brion: Is this Infinity Island or not?
  • Sensei: (sighs) It is.
  • Brion: Then where is your army of ninjas?
  • Sensei: I don't need an army. I trained the army.
  • Brion: You didn't train them for me.

  • Miss Martian: You're sure they went to Infinity Island?
  • Nightwing: The one place we very specifically told them not to go? Yep.
  • Miss Martian: Well, what goes around comes around.
  • Nightwing: What's that supposed to mean?
  • Conner: Uh, "Cadmus" ring any bells?
  • Nightwing: Oh, man. I hate being the grown-up.

  • Brion: My sister was abducted by the League of Shadows. I'm here to bring her home.
  • Sensei: As far as I can tell, boy, you are here to make a fool of yourself.
  • Brion: Tell me where my sister is!
  • Sensei: Perhaps your sister chooses not to be found by you. I've hardly known you five minutes, but already sympathize with such a decision.

  • Sensei: I am no longer amused by this conversation. And you have ruined my meditation space.

  • Nightwing: Ra's al Ghul is many things, but a liar isn't one of them.

  • Tigress: Would the Great One care to reveal who is running the Shadows now?
  • Ra's al Ghul: (chuckles) No, he would not.
  • Tigress: It's not my dad, is it?
  • Ra's al Ghul: (chuckles) No.
  • Tigress: (chuckles) My sister?
  • Ra's al Ghul: Get out.

  • Red Hooded Ninja: Gray-son.
  • Ra's al Ghul: Oh, your memory is finally returning. Excellent.

  • Nightwing: Let's make one thing clear. We are not happy. You stole Sphere, disobeyed direct orders, and endangered your lives. You will not be doing this again.

  • Superboy: And just like that, you're leading another team.
  • Nightwing: Please don't rub it in.
