*So Omi freezes himself for 80 years in the grand finale. Which begs the questions: one, What looks like a normal kitchen timer has a setting that goes up to 80 years; two, no one went down there in those 80 years and noticed the three objects lying on the floor; and three, the cassette tape and player still worked perfectly after all that time?!?!

* In "Screams Of The Siren" Kimiko mentions no one can survive the heat down at the center of the Earth, but they've already visited it quite a few times before - first when Omi went to retrieve the Golden Tiger Claws, second to get the Emperor Scorpion and the third when they got sent there by the Black Vipers.

** Rai's attack doesn't generate a tornado shape, though. It's gale-force winds, which is more typhoon than tornado. Typhoon literally has the word "wind" in it if you write it in Chinese/Japanese.

** He probably prepared a specfic ceremony or such beforehand. Consideting how strong Wuya is, he wouldn't have tried to restore her unless he had a reliable method of ensuring she is weaker than him.

** Firstly, the reversed Golden Tiger Claws would probably make it so the user cannot travel at all (it would freeze them on the spot for a period of time). The reversed Sands Of Time would send you the opposite temporal direction (if you wanted to go to the future, you'd be sent to the past, and vice versa), the Sword of The Storm would remove winds, and as for the Sweet Baby Among Us, maybe it would shoot golden diapers not at the enemy but at the person who possesses it. You just have to use your imagination.

** The Reversing Mirror tends to reverse any projectiles headed to the wielder so the golden diapers would be bounced back and probabyl the same could be said for the winds.

*** In fact this may be why they don't do it as often as they could. They may have occasional bursts of GenreSavvy that say that if they're too unfair in what they pick, some LaserGuidedKarma will insure that the enemy is actually better at the challenge than expected. (Like, say, if Raymundo was completely and utterly unfair and picked "Not being named Jack" as a Showdown, it would turn out that Jack Spicer's real name is Eugene, and Raymundo forgot that his own middle name is Jackson or something, as AnAesop about not being a jerk.)

* How does Chase bring Wuya back without her powers? He used the Serpent's Tail and the Reversing Mirror, just like Raimundo did, so why would the effects be any different? Are we just hand-waving it as some unspecified Heylin magic?
