  • This is the last episode when the voice says "You Failed Miserably to sabotage the challenge!" to a failed saboteur after the saboteur has been revealed, although the voice said it for one more time in Series 3, Episode 6 (Gateshead). From now on she will use just "failed to sabotage the challenge" to a failed saboteur
  • Birmingham was previously visited in Series 1 episode 5
  • Rhianna is the only successful saboteur from Extraction to escape the tower.
  • Rhianna does not receive any votes as Saboteur on each floor.
  • The Caretaker's made-up fact about Rhianna is a reference to England winning the 1966 FIFA World Cup. It has been England's only win of the title to date.
  • Alex is the only saboteur in Freaky Factory to get detected after failing to sabotage the game; All the other saboteurs who failed to sabotage the game (Rebecca (Series 1, Episode 6 (Edinburgh)), Blaise (Series 2, Episode 5 (Liverpool)) and Elliot (Series 3, Episode 3 (Sutton Coldfield))) were all undetected.
