Vegeta intercepts Dodoria, who hopes Vegeta will spare him if he reveals it was Frieza who destroyed the Saiyan homeworld. Vegeta decides to destroy Dodoria anyway and then begins searching for Gohan and Krillin. Unable to find them, Vegeta decides to start searching for the Dragon Balls. Meanwhile, Gohan and Krillin find Bulma, who has great news: Goku will arrive on Namek in six days.
- Dodoria is killed by Vegeta.
- We first find out that Frieza was the one who destroyed Planet Vegeta.
- Vegeta reveals that he can now sense energy signals as the Z Fighters can.
- Dende's name is mentioned for the first time.
- Until the Ginyu Force arrive, there are no more scouters on Namek, since Vegeta crushes his.
- Twice during Vegeta's fight with Dodoria, Vegeta's eyes are dark and look like shadows. This happens once more when Vegeta is fighting Cell in his second form.
- Vegeta tells Dodoria "Taking you down will be easier than catching fish in a barrel." The correct term is SHOOTING fish in a barrel. And in episode 29, "Friends or Foes?", they didn't seem to have a problem with Zeshin saying "It'll be just like shooting fish in a barrel."
- When Gohan, Krillin, and Dende are hiding from Vegeta, Gohan says this isn't a good hiding place, and Krillin says "You got a better suggestion, Einstein?" Although other characters have been called "Einstein" in this way, in Episode 156, "Memories of Gohan", it is revealed that Chi-Chi wanted to name Gohan "Einstein", no doubt because she wanted him to be a scholar.
- This is the final episode to feature Ian James Corlett as the voice of Goku. For the rest of the Saban dub, Goku is voiced by Peter Kelamis. It should be noted though that Corlett's final recorded performance was in the edited Tree of Might three-parter, which aired a month later in November 1997.
