  • This episode introduces the new design for the Whisper Clips which now greater resemble large bat wings that fully cover the ear, as opposed to the older sea shell designs that only partially covered them. According to Samadul, one of the Unfortunates from Series 1, Episode 12 (Bow), he said in a YouTube comment that the original Whisper Clips had a design flaw and were faulty. Samadul mentioned that during filming of the episode, he was originally chosen as Saboteur for Snake Attack but because the others could hear The Voice speaking to him, they had to re-film the challenge and choose a new Saboteur (which ended up being Mitchell). It was likely due to this incident that the Whisper Clips were redesigned.
  • This episode also introduced a new design for the Key of Freedom.
