Episode Notes
Avalon World Tour's Final Stop: Manhattan, New York City. The World Travelers ended their odyssey on July 9, 1996.

In the Gathering, we see all the Children of Oberon that appeared in the Avalon Tour: Raven, Anansi, Grandmother, the Lady of the Lake, Anubis, Coyote, Odin and the Banshee.

LOOK HARD: We can see a few anonymous Children in Oberon's throne room during the Gathering: a winged horse (Pegasus?), a centaur, a Medusa-like figure, and a couple of giants.

Greg Weisman disclosed that the guy in the trench-coat who walks off-screen just before Odin greets Oberon is called Nought.

Greg Weisman stated that the mirror Oberon uses to communicate with Princess Katharine, summon Boudicca, and enter the human world is not Titania's Mirror, which was shattered in "The Mirror." It is in fact Oberon's Mirror.



Episode Quotes
Fox: Who is Titania? Mother, explain yourself!
Xanatos: This should prove interesting.
Oberon: More interesting then you know...

Titania: (about Alexander) Although the blood line has thinned, he has great potential.
Xanatos: With his pedigree, of course he does.

Oberon: You have fought for your child admirably against insurmountable odds. I hope you find some comfort in that.

Hudson: I knew you hadn't abandoned us.
Goliath: Never.



Episode Goofs
We never see Boudicca return to Avalon in this or the next episode.



Cultural References
Oberon: But my pet and I have pressing business within.
Guard: You have pressing business inside.
Oberon: And you have other matters to attend.
Guard: I have other things to do.

The scene where Oberon hypnotizes the guard at the Eyrie Building is very similar to the same scene in Star Wars where Obi-Wan Kenobi does the same thing to an Imperial Guard.



Analysis
Puck = Pied Piper of Hamelin?

Since Oberon gave Boudicca a wooden flute to use in sniffing out Puck's scent, many fans have speculated the possibility that one of the trickster's past aliases was the Pied Piper of Hamelin, although it was never denied or confirmed by Greg Weisman. Or it may simply be the same flute, made from a willow twig, that Puck had in Shakespeare's play.
