  • This episode reveals that Eda was cursed when she was young and if she does not take a special elixir daily, she transforms into a vicious owl-demon, which is why people call her The Owl Lady.
  • Luz does magic, more specifically light magic, for the first time.
  • Eda is revealed to sleep in a nest.
  • This episode takes place a week after the events of "A Lying Witch and a Warden".
  • On some airings, the theme song on this episode is shortened.
  • During King's lesson to Luz the following books can be seen: Infernal Medicine, Atlas of the Pit, The Big Book of Misery, So You Sold Your Soul, The Horror of Cooking, Just the Pacts, Torture Vol XXIV.
  • When Cursed Eda was smelling the book, the 4th code is revealed on the book; it gets cracked into "EH-P-AH-R-T" and translated into "Apart".
  • Although this episode premiered in 2020, it was produced in 2019 according to the credits.


  • The "An elixir a day keeps the curse at bay" tag is a play on the phrase "An apple a day keeps the doctor away".
  • Gravity Falls: The demon Bill Cipher can be spotted on the Demon 101 board.
  • The Lesser Key of Solomon: King's Demon board includes an illustration of Buer, a Goetic demon that is depicted as a multiple-goat-legged lion.
  • Ghibli: Eda's Owl Monster look is very reminiscent of Ghibli's monster designs.
    • Eda's chase of King through the house replicates Kaonashi chasing Chihiro through the halls of the spa in Ghibli's 2001 film Spirited Away.
  • Vitruvian Man: The book cursed Eda sniffed that contained the episode's code word references Leonardo da Vinci's famous drawing.
  • David Attenborough: Luz' commentary on King's battle with the ducky sock using an affected British accent references the narrator of numerous BBC nature documentaries.


Closed captioned typo error -1
Closed captioned typo error -2

This is the first episode with hidden errors that have forgotten to be fixed:

  • Not in the episode itself, but rather some typo in the closed caption, like "No Way!" to "Now Way!" and "you" to "yo".
  • When Eda is showing Luz the picture of the heart, it is a layer above her hands.


  • In Southeast Asia broadcast, "stupid" was cut in English audio.
