* Prior to the release of ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'', the Nostalgia Critic was involved in a lot of crossovers. Now, with the knowledge that [[spoiler:Doug was retiring the character after this movie]], take another look at some of the reviews & who the crossover was with - ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' with DiamandaHagan; Count Chocula with the Maven of the Eventide, ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digi]][[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 mon]]: TheMovie'' with JesuOtaku; and ''TheWiz'' with WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows. They were all reviewers that Doug had never worked with[[note]]Whilst Todd & the Critic were both in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', they never interacted[[/note]] before, be it in a crossover or an anniversary special - [[spoiler:he was giving everyone a chance to get a crossover with the character before he hung up the tie]]. Like the [[Series/DoctorWho Tenth Doctor]], he was [[spoiler:saying good-bye in his own way]].

* When Luke is learning the ways of The Plot at Oancitizen's hands, it's done in the same way as John Murdoch's training in ''Film/DarkCity''. ''Dark City'' came out in 1998, the same ere as films such as ''ThePhantomMenace'', ''Film/LostInSpace'' and later ''Film/TheMatrix'', all films which were derivative of other works (One a TV adaptation, the other a prequel of an existing trilogy, and many would argue that ''TheMatrix'' is largely derived from ''GhostInTheShell'', as possibly lampshaded by Marz Gurl's costume.) ''Dark City'' was critically acclaimed, and an original and creative piece, unlike the other (arguably) derivative films. Not only would this explain why Oancitizen would use its methodology, as it appeals to his High Brow sensibility, but it also explains why it would be the light side of The Plot - as opposed to the profit-driven machinations of the dark side.

* In the commentary for the Nostalgia Critic's ''TheGarbagePailKidsMovie'' review, Doug and Rob said that the final scene of the review was originally planned to be the end of the Nostalgia Critic. If you look at that ending and compare it to the ''To Boldly Flee'' ending, [[spoiler:they're almost mirror images of each other[[note]]Both endings involve being warped to a normal looking yet surreal world, a conversation with people who look just like him, and a transformation that takes him across the stars[[/note]], the difference being that he met a, for lack of a better word, [[IncrediblyLamePun crappy]] end induced by an incredibly horrible movie, while his end in ''To Boldly Flee'' was of his own choice, saving everyone while finally finding peace.]]

* Remember that the story arc in progress on ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' is confirmed to be set after ''ToBoldlyFlee'' ends and deals with the idea that [[spoiler:Linkara is slowly undergoing a FaceHeelTurn]]? Makes [[spoiler:nobody realising he's been replaced by Mechakara]] all the more chilling, since everyone thinks [[spoiler:it's actually in character for Linkara to act like that]]; effectively meaning that ''ToBoldlyFlee'' is providing some {{Futureshadowing}} to the ongoing ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' plot.

** Beyond which, if Paw's been monitoring space with Angry Joe and the others, they're probably perfectly aware of the big honking spaceship in Earth's orbit. Heck, Joe was the one to capture it in the battle.
* If the whole thing about [[spoiler:Ma-Ti importing his character into Spoony before dying]] really happened, it puts a whole new spin on the ending of ''SuburbanKnights'', when [[spoiler:Spoony breaks down and shouts "Ma-Tiiiiiiii" in the middle of one of his reviews for no evident reason]].
* [[spoiler:The death of ThatSciFiGuy]]. Think about it, it's Sci-Fi Guy. This is the guy who has built up his review career on exactly what they're going into. If Sci-Fi guy had made it onto the ship, he might have noted all the twists and turns, so that despite the plot hole, he would know all the bizzare Sci-fi tropes and been able to report them safely before they got out of hand. He probably also had to go as he would have been something of a GameBreaker if he'd made it on board.

* Lupa and Todd briefly quip that Todd could only date the Nostalgia Chick in some bizarre alternate universe. At first, this just seems like RealitySubtext, but really, it works as perfect foreshadowing for the fact that [[spoiler:the real world literally ''is'' an alternate universe beyond the Plot Hole]].
* Phelous' final rank was Jesus but [[spoiler:the Nostalgia Critic merged with the plot hole & thus still outranks as he's now AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence becoming part of the fabric of the universe]].

* The movie is basically about critics dealing with a PlotHole, something that they've all had experiences with. The primary difference than normal is that the plot hole effects the story that they're in.

* Why is MarzGurl the one to continuously direct combat plans for the ''USS Exit Strategy''? During her time in {{Kickassia}}, she was the head of the military!

to:

* A nice bit of foreshadowing. In Part 1, Critic looks at a picture of Ma-Ti. Where did that picture coe from? It's a screenshot from the Critic's review of Battlefield Earth, where he first encountered Terl. What's more, in that review, Ma-Ti is the one who guides Critic towards reviewing said movie...
