- Chapter 2: At the end of the chapter, Ms. Ignis, the CEO of the company funding TDR, confronts Chris on TV. She proceeds to call Chris out for his callousness, and fires him from his job.

- Chapter 8: Right in the middle of the challenge, Chris causes Silver to have an allergic reaction, nearly killing him. Then, as the contestants gather to comfort Silver, Chris manages to force control of the island from Scarlett and Molly. Ends with the cliffhanger of the contestants literally falling into the abyss.
- Chapter 10: The episode, like chapter 8, starts relatively normal...and continues to be normal. Then, at the very end, AJ is approached by someone in the dead of night. This mystery man gives AJ the whammy that Phoenix Industries is putting her friends in danger, and hands her a mysterious MacGuffin before fleeing.
- Chapter 12: The entire cast gets food poisoning. What makes it worse, however, is Noah's flippant nature.
- Wham Line:
- Miss Ignis: Chris McLean, you're fired.
