TV episode of Tron: Uprising
Story by: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz
Written by: Kamran Pasha, Adam Nussdorf & Bill Wolkoff
Directed by: Charlie Bean
Original air date: June 7, 2012
Tron begins training Beck, but Beck begins to have doubts about
his own ability to live up to the challenges.
At 6:19 in the episode, notice that Zed makes a heart shape
around the reflection of Mara.
Abel's favorite light cycle is his ENCOM 786. Sam also rides
his father's 786 in Legacy.
The white-clad women who armor up the programs selected for
the games are Sirens.
Zed and Mara visit a night club in Argon City called
0001001. "0001001" is binary code for the number 9.
Zed meets Perl at 0001001. The name "Perl" comes from a line
of programming languages, used primarily on UNIX servers.
At 16:34 in the episode, notice that an old-style bit (as
seen in Tron) is seen
hovering and spinning over a pedestal in Abel's office. Zed
shows it to Perl. Later, in "We Both Know How
This Ends", armor similar to Yori's is seen in Abel's
office. The old-style bit and armor may suggest the
Abel has a connection to the original Electronic World of Tron.
