- Discord was a Basket Case during the production of this motion picture.
- Seska graduated from the Academy at some point since her last appearance.
- Seska refers to Lilith as having been "a wild one." Jodie Rimmer played Young Lilith on Young Hercules.
- According to Iolaus, Hercules has already saved the featured village at least ten times.
- Curiously, Jason (Seska's father) is not even mentioned during the episode.
- In ancient Greece, Hecate was the patron of witches, meaning that in spite of Haleh's statement, witchcraft was indeed a power from the gods.
- That Jason's daughter should have to deal with witches is fitting, since the original Medea was often called a witch.
- Nekros means "corpse" in ancient Greek.
