** At one point, Jack is nearly beaten by the DJ. The former looks up in despair at the crowd of rave-hypnotized teenagers, broken by their evil glares as though they were wishing for him to lose. But when his gaze falls upon Olivia, the missing daughter of the Inn Keeper, Jack realizes he's got to win this battle for their sake, and gains second wind!

** Traveling through the forest, Ashi hears music only to find a rave as music is blasting and everyone dances. Ashi asks one of the dancers about whether Jack had passed through...and the party immediate comes to a halt. A spotlight shines on Ashi as the DJ demands to know what she wants. After Ashi, on a big screen for the whole crowd to see, explains that he's in danger and she's looking to help him the DJ comes out of the shadows. The old woman reveals herself to be Olivia, and she leads the crowd in doing an S-shape salute and then a dance number of how Jack saved her and her friends all those years ago.

** And [[spoiler: he does it in ''two blows'' - the first to stop the Omen's sword from hitting Ashi, and the second to strike the Omen down.]]

** And [[spoiler: he does it in ''two blows'' - the first to stop the Omen's sword from hitting Ashi, and the second to strike the Omen down. Just like the Daughters of Aku before him, the Omen was doomed to fail once Jack's HeroicResolve kicked in.]]
** Crossing over with a heartwarming moment: [[spoiler: the moment the Omen moves to deliver a killing blow on Ashi, Jack's on his feet and blocking the ghost's sword in a flash. This is the point where the old Jack - the one who will never hesitate before helping others - [[HesBack really comes back]].

* [[spoiler: The revelation that the Daughters of Aku's spy catsuits are really just ash burnt into their skin gives them one retroactively; they managed to hunt Samurai Jack through a tundra essentially naked and didn't even flinch.]]

* [[spoiler: The revelation that An army's marching out to kill Jack. If the Daughters of Aku's spy catsuits are really just ash burnt into their skin gives way it's implied, Ashi's going to fight them one retroactively; they managed all to hunt Samurai Jack through a tundra essentially naked and didn't even flinch.]]protect Jack.

* The whole episode is Jack's origin story, how his legend was forged. From a mere boy to a grown warrior, here is the man destined to fight Aku!
** Generally, the great lengths he goes before he completes his training. India, Africa, Egypt, Greek, Vikings, England, Russia, Mongolia, China, each location taught him a new skill. And unintentionally, each skill also prepared Jack for his inevitable journey through the future.

*** During the dance, some of the ravers perform a shadow play of Samurai Jack fighting Aku.

*** Despite Da Samurai's ego when he [[UnreliableNarrator recalls what an awesome dude he was]], he has developed the humility to admit he may be a cool guy, but Samurai Jack is COOLER.

* This episode in general was nothing but a sendoff to the early seasons that made this show great. We see whats become of some of those that were saved by Jack and never seen again leaving fans wondering of their fates:
** Two of The Woolies believe that Ashi is another of Aku's bounty-hunters so they try and capture her proclaiming that she won't hurt Jack. After the mix-up is cleared up, they proudly state that they are Jack's friends and part on good terms. For a bonus shot of Heartwarming, its implied that they may actually be The Woolies from the original epsiode.
** The Three Blind Archers are re-introduced as what's left of some Battle Drones are running away, firing a arrow ''through'' a tree that Ashi is hiding behind demanding that she leaves. A proper introduction later, and Ashi is taken to their city...complete with a towering statue of Jack built in his honor.

*** The dance is really the cherry on top of this episode: It includes the dance moves Jack originally used to blend in at the time with the Ashi joining in at the end. The chorus is literally them saying how they will never forget what Jack did for them.
** At a BadGuyBar that she finds, Ashi meets an old friend: Da Samurai who's aged pretty spectacularly especially compared to those such as The Scotsman. He's long since hung up his sword after his humbling experience with Jack as all the bar's patrons (who are also ex-bounty hunters who went after Jack) shows their battles scars courtesy of Jack.

*** Goes further when Ashi never clarifies that she's Jack's friend and ally. Meaning that either they were either trying to ''warn her away'' from fighting Jack or just giving her some warning about what to expect. Given that Demongo had no interest in taking any of the bounty hunters, it makes you wonder if the Da Samurai's BadGuyBar is more of an ex-BadGuyBar.
