  • This is the last episode of Lab Rats. After this, it is a new show called Lab Rats Bionic Island.
  • This episode is the Season 3 finale.
  • This episode is part 4 of the "Escape To The Bionic Island" story-arc.
  • This is the 7th episode overall to have the word "Mission" in its title. The First Six are: Mission Invisible, Mission: Space, Missin' the Mission, The Haunting of Mission Creek High, Twas the Mission Before Christmas, and Mission: Mission Creek High
  • Leo has finally been ranked up from a beginner.
  • The events of Rats on a Train are mentioned in this episode. It's also interesting to note that Spin's attitude is reminiscent of 13-year old Leo's during that episode.
  • It is revealed that Principal Perry has again retired from being principal at the school. Perry states that she missed having Adam, Bree, and Chase around to torment.
  • Mission Alerts are now routed to a blackboard on the academy. It appears to be in the Classroom but the room is configured differently, lacking the table before the screen.
    • Bob and Spin delete a mission from the records and tried to do it on their own, luckily rescuers got there and solved the problem before they arrived.
  • Former Principal Perry infiltrated the Bionic Academy several times, most often by stealing or intercepting technology from Davenport Industries and dodging Donald Davenport's attempts to improve security. Whenever she was pushed out the Hyper-loop, she left some piece of clothing behind. Donald eventually gives in and hired her as Head of Security after he discovered Spin and Bob managed to get away and get in trouble.
  • Leo and Bree were both terrified to see Perry. Bree helped Donald eject her several times. Leo went to get stuck in quicksand after Donald did hire her.
  • Bob and Spin apparently cannot Geo-leap. They arrive too late to the mission they intercepted. Got stuck on quick sand (and had to call Leo to bust them out), and had to use the Hyper-loop to go to the dormitory and wash off.
  • We learn Spin has a black cell phone, and despite disliking Leo, he has his number and does not hesitate to call him after realizing he wouldn't be able to escape the quicksand. Leo in turn has a white cell phone and uses it to take a selfie with the boys in trouble.
  • For all 3 episodes that included the Bionic Academy, Spin and Leo got involved in something, and at least one of them got into trouble.
  • Sebastian turns evil at the end of the episode, after learning about what happened to Krane. We see that his plans are to get rid of Mr. Davenport. Since the team got rid of their father, he wants to get rid of theirs.
  • The events of this episode were discussed in Bionic Rebellion.
  • There is another Bionic student with a name different from Donald, his name is Charlie.
    • It is unknown how he avoided being named a Donald, though it's possible Donald got tired and/or stopped naming the soldiers after a certain point, and let them choose their own names.  
    • This is also true for Lexi and Tank. (Bionic Rebellion)


  • It's unknown how Spin acquired a cell phone when it was stated in Bionic House Party that the soldiers didn't have any possessions but the clothes on their backs. It's possible Donald gave all the students phones, or it was given by Krane as one of the stolen communication equipment, in Rise of the Secret Soldiers.
  • When Leo comes to rescue Bob and Spin, they are both the same depth in the quicksand, despite Spin getting stuck after Bob.
