Directly after the events of The Skylands Are Falling!, Team Spyro and Master Eon are discussing with Crash about the happenings in his world. He warns them that he was about to stop another villain, Dr. Neo Cortex, before he attempted world domination, and Eon concluded that the bandicoot had to be sent back as soon as possible. Opening an interdimensional portal with great difficulty, he attempted to send Crash back, and though he was gone for a moment, he eventually reappeared in the same spot.
Crash's theme song plays when Crash takes on the Greebles and saves the Mabu couple. Unlike other instances in this and the previous episode, the other Skylanders notice it playing somewhere in the background.
Glumshanks' first appearance in the episode has him talking over the phone about a new Batman movie, as identified by his lines about "killing his parents" and "double chin costume". However, he never mentions the name.
At the same exchange, he also says it is a "shut up and take my money" franchise, in a reference to Futurama.
