* At face value, [[this page http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20150930#.VxJioHoyAyt]] has Higgs StatingTheSimpleSolution in regards to Gil maintaining contact with Agatha: letters. However, another strip has shown that letters meant for Gil have a history of never getting to their destination. One can't speak for the other Sparks Higgs mentions, but Gil actually has a good reason to not think of letters as a viable means of communication.

* At first, the ''Girl Genius'' setting seems like it would be an awesome place to live, with all the [[SteamPunk "Gaslamp Fantasy"]] trappings and elements. But, when you look at it, when people call [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder Sparks]] {{Mad Scientist}}s, they mean that they are ''mad''. Look at some of the things that are said or done by Sparks in the series -- note that, for example, when Professor Mittlemind [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090706 talks about how his Xmas good deed was letting the children out of their containment tanks]], everyone is more horrified at the idea he was letting the Control Group out (he wasn't) than the fact they were keeping kids in tanks and experimenting on them in the first place. Even Agatha, who, perhaps due to having grown up with her Spark artificially repressed, is considered one of the sanest Sparks in the setting, has no reply but to change the subject when [[GenreSavvy Moloch]] suggests that she [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20121109 really wants to fire Gil's lightning rod in the middle of a torrential downpour]]. There's a reason that HoistByHisOwnPetard is practically the ''de facto'' cause of death for Sparks. What makes things worse? Sparks ''rule the world''; check out Gil's comments in [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090225 this strip]] about what goes on outside of Europa. So just what kind of CrapsackWorld ''is'' the Girl Genius setting?

* When Agatha declares herself the Heterodyne to the Castle's kitchen, it starts to slash at her with knives but only makes superficial wounds when Agatha says it could have put one through her eye easily. This is because the personality fragment of the kitchen remembers from the time that the Castle was whole that the Heterodyne is confirmed through a blood test, but is too broken and[=/=]or insane to remember the test is done in the chapel and it doesn't have the equipment.

* The smoke knights' [[FantasticFightingStyle fighting techniques]]. The Sturmvoraus-von Blitzengaard clan is known for being a bunch of sneaky, deceptive, poisonous backstabbers... and they're so good at it, they made a whole martial art out of ''literal'' sneaking, deception, poisoning and backstabbing.

* Seffie mentions to her butler that she has been intercepting Gil's letters since she was child. Since both she and Gil are likely in their early twenties, she could not know him in Paris in her teenage years (think little girl go to live in big city and she said child not teen), then she can only know him in Castle Wulfenbach. She was student which triple as [[IHaveYourWife hostage]] and TheMole for House Stormvoraus there.

* Agatha knows the story of Skifander "The Warrior Queen's Secret Jewel" from her uncle, Barry. Lucrezia also recognize green-haired warrior, Zeetha, as Skifandrian. Then you realized that at least Bill, Barry and Lucrezia but Klaus went on a journey there at [[NoodleIncident one of untold adventures]].
** Related to above, it is why Lucrezia sent Klaus there. Few people knows it exists and fewer knows how to go and from there.
** Klaus didn't join the Heterodyne Boys at that particular adventure. If he did, he would get a lot sooner.
