  • Four new characters are introduced in this episode. ("Thermo Hands," Reggie, Kate/Spikette, and Spikerella)
  • Hal Sparks (Donald Davenport) is absent in this episode.
    • This is his 3rd absence in a row in Season 4.
  • Bree temporarily gets a commando app known as "Spikerella."
  • This is the second episode in Season 4 when one of Chase's siblings gets one of his abilities. The first being Adam getting the Override App in Simulation Manipulation.
  • It is revealed that Krane implanted his soldiers with many hidden abilities, kind of like what Douglas did with Adam, Bree, and Chase. However, this was shown with Sebastian in Bionic Rebellion.
  • Chase gets to see the Commando App for the first time. 
  • When Adam says he got beat up by a 90lb girl (Kate) and Leo joins him into the "club" he was possibly referring to Kerry
  • Two new abilities are introduced in this episode: Sonic Scream and Thermokinesis.
  • This is the second episode where a student besides Spin, Bob, and Sebastian has a plot-important role, the first time being Bionic Rebellion with Lexi and Tank.
  • This is the second episode when a drone causes trouble. The first being Drone Alone.
  • This is the third time a new character is introduced in a Spike episode.
  • This is the second time Adam gets thrown by someone under the Commando App. The first being Spike Fright.
  • Douglas explained the creation of the Commando App for the first time. It was created for the weakest looking person, so an enemy would be surprised when that person turned out to be fierce and scary.
    • However, this only explains why Kate had the app. Chase asked Douglas what this said about him having the Commando App, but his question remained unanswered.
  • Bionic Hearing is shown again as a passive ability when Chase fell to the ground covering his ears after being bombarded by the noise of Kate's Sonic Scream.
  • Chase is seen shirtless (and in a diaper) for the first time in the series.


  • In the scene where Bree was having the Commando App loaded to her chip, there was a sensor on her forehead. In the next scene, it is gone.
  • Douglas said he could remove the Commando App from Kate's chip. However, it was stated in Brother Battle that bionic abilities cannot be removed once they are unlocked.
    • It is possible that this is different because it's not a hidden ability or Krane's chips are different (but were made with Douglas' tech). 
    • it is also possible abilities can be traded, which was exactly what Douglas did by replacing her Commando App with Sonic Scream, or that Bionic Apps are removable.
  • Chase said he can't shut down Spikette because he doesn't know how. However, Chase could have used his Override App, which can shut down a bionic soldier.
    • It's possible that he has to have it installed on the bionic soldiers to use it on them like he did in Simulation Manipulation. However, Bionic Dog disproves this, as Otis was able to control Adam with the override app, even though they never made any contact prior to that episode. Though it is also possible that Otis' override app worked differently or was made to be able to control the Lab Rats and the bionic soldiers.  
  • Spike says in this episode that he doesn't fight with ladies, but in Spike's Got Talent he fought with Perry.
    • It's possible that Perry didn't count because Spike considered her a threat (and likely doesn't consider her as a lady).
