  • This is the second and last episode when all the saboteurs were trapped, the first one being Series 1, Episode 8 (Manchester)
  • This is the only episode to have Spooked played on Floor 5 where a male unfortunate escaped the Tower.
  • This is the only episode to have 4 boys and 2 girls in the batch of unfortunates. Although it is possible one of the boys (most likely Dan) was a substitute for a girl who was originally meant to appear, but could not attend for unknown reasons.
  • In Camp Fear, Yinka made the team pass on purpose as she was scared of the Moonhowler. When the Voice tells her that it was her last chance to put the fire out, Yinka said "But, I'm scared!" Then the Voice replied "I know, but be brave! Get out there now! But don't talk to me, the others might hear you!". Despite this, Yinka was not detected as the Saboteur.
  • On Floor 3, even though the challenge was passed, Juhel was the only person to vote for the saboteur which was Yinka, and everyone else voted for Juhel.
  • On Floor 2 there was an awkward moment when Juhel was asked "What did Yinka hand to the librarian?" and Juhel said "Pardon?" causing the Voice to repeat the question in a frustrated manner. Juhel then answered the question correctly.
  • This is the first instance in which a saboteur indirectly spoke to the Voice during a challenge. In this case, Yinka talked to the voice during Camp Fear.
  • This is the last of five episodes where all of the girls are trapped before Floor 2. The other episodes include Series 1, Episode 7 (Brighton), Series 2, Episode 12 (Newcastle), Series 3, Episode 1 (Brixton) and Series 3, Episode 5 (Maidstone). However, the fact that there is an uneven amount of boys and girls in this episode may have contributed to this.
  • This episode is the last appearance of Wall of Sorrow, Spooked and Camp Fear.
  • Osman is the last saboteur, and Unfortunate, to be trapped on Wall of Sorrow. He was also the only Saboteur in Wall of Sorrow who was at the front of the wall during both of the blackouts.
  • Yinka is the second Unfortunate in Camp Fear who was not detected as Saboteur, though she did fail to sabotage the challenge. The first was Fiona from Series 2, Episode 3 (Norwich).
  • This is the last episode where the final two Unfortunates in the Fight For Freedom are both boys.
  • When Juhel voted for Osman on Wall of Sorrow, Juhel claimed that each time the bricks fell down near him, Osman was right beside him. However, Osman corrects Juhel after his accusation by saying that Dan was next to him.
  • Yinka and Salima both wear pink tops. This is the third time the female unfortunates where the same colour tops since Series 1, Episode 10 (Newcastle) and Series 3, Episode 4 (Newport).
  • This is the last episode where the two Unfortunates participating in the Fight For Freedom (Dan and Juhel) have never been chosen as Saboteurs at any point in the episode.
  • The Caretaker’s made up fact for Salima is a reference to the film The Sound of Music.
  • Dan is the only unfortunate in this episode to not have dark hair. Salima and Callum both have dark brown hair, while Osman, Yinka and Juhel all have black hair.
  • Yinka is the only female unfortunate in Spooked to hand the books to Miss Mutternot.
