Complete Credits


As Jool and D'Argo are reunited with the remains of Moya's crew, Jool's archeology background is uncovered once more. Although it's unlikely she'll wind up back in Grunchlik's freezer this time, the stakes at this dig are just as high, enough so that The Old Woman may sacrifice John's life to protect them...assuming Commandant Grayza doesn't capture him first.

One figure that John sees, first on a wall of the dig, and later on a child's tile, is similar to the Egyptian heiroglyph referred to as the Eye of Horus.

John: "Damn! The Creature from the Black Lagoon, sorta."

John likens Oo-nii to the eponymous character of the classic 1954 monster movie and its two sequels: 1955's REVENGE OF THE CREATURE and 1956's THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US.
