* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Notably, the fate of [[spoiler: the clone of Blake from "Weapon"]] is never revealed. Some people believe [[spoiler: that's why Servalan seemed so certain Blake was dead - she may have encountered the clone again. Blake in the finale notably can't be the clone, because he was with Jenna.]]

** Jacqueline Pearce. Servalan is an utterly cold, calculating (and scene-stealing) bitch. Pearce herself is a rather charming and good-humoured sort. When she appeared on ''[[ Series/{{Pointless}} Pointless Celebrities]]'' with Michael Keating, for instance, she was practically {{Adorkable}}.

* WordOfDante / WordOfSaintPaul: Avon surviving the KillEmAll BolivianArmyEnding is pretty generally accepted in the {{Fandom}}, and might be a case of AscendedFanon now that the possibility of a sequel/reboot including the character has been floated. The fact that one of the fans in question is Paul Darrow, the actor who played Avon, doesn't hurt this one's chances one bit.

* CreatorBacklash: Josette Simon did not look back on the show with fondness, believing that the showrunners took advantage of her naivety and lack of confidence to get her to play a "hot exotic warrior woman" part that she saw retrospectively as both sexually and racially demeaning.
** Jacqueline Pearce was unhappy with the final season, claiming that it ran out of steam and ideas. That said, she named "Sand" from that season as her favourite episode.
