Vex receives a transmission from Zadra but his joy at her still being alive is short lived as he finds out she knows who the traitor is. Meanwhile Steve invites Aja out, as a group thing, to a bon fire with the other Arcadia Oaks students.
Tropes for this episode include:
- Blinding Camera Flash: When the Blank Parents are off to see Aja off for her date, they are seen fiddling with an old polaroid camera, the flash causing their eyeballs roll around in their heads.
- Character Death: Zernon Beta is killed by Vex during the climax fight.
- Continuity Nod: When Mary asks Darci why she didn't bring Toby to the bonfire, she mentions he had to help his "Uncle Marlin", followed by a brief clip of Jim cutting through the water current after the amulet is reassembled.
- Idiosyncratic Ship Naming: In-Universe. When May finds out that Aja came with Steve to the bonfire party, she goes over a list of possible ship-names before settling on "Staja."
- Once More, with Clarity!: When Varvatos admits he was the traitor, we are shown the King entrusting Aja and Krel to his care again, this time he admits he already knows Varvatos was the traitor, but begs him to protect his children anyway.
- Phoneaholic Teenager: When Aja acknowledges that Steve is asking her out, he tries to claim that it isn't while nervously fiddling with his phone as a means of segueing away from the conversation while Aja does the same in assumption of it being a custom.
- Portmanteau Couple Name: In-Universe, When Mary sees that Aja and Steve are on a date, she debates on weather to call them Staja or Ajeeve before settling on Staja.
- Some Kind of Force Field: Zernon Beta crashes into the force-field surrounding the house, unaware that it was even there.
- Urban Legends: The Arcadian Billycraggle is an urban legend in Arcadia. Considering that aliens and trolls live there, what are the odds that it does exist and that we just didn't see it this episode?
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: Aja's disguise starts to wear off just as she was about to kiss Steve.
