* ClicheStorm: To the point that the recovery of another episode was met with decidedly more mixed reactions that literally any other story would have gotten. Opinion has shifted as fans have seen the episode. It's generally considered much better than episode 3, and improves episode 3 by adding much-needed context.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Hey, it's the WellIntentionedExtremist [[DiamondsAreForever Doctor Metz!]] Only here, his [[EarthShatteringKaboom his intentions aren't so well.]]
