This episode follows up on the clue left by the Woolie Elder in Episode IV

The aesthetic design of this episode carries a strong Middle Eastern influence

Jeremy's Review

The extended montage of Jack and Ikra's desert adventure is cute despite the fact that the twist with Ikra is fairly telegraphed throughout the episode. Overall, it's a fun but predictable episode. B-
