The Ninja Situation is the B-plot of season 2, episode 20.


Otis must go undercover to recover a stolen gadget.

Learning Goal:

Numbers and Operations: partitioning and dividing


  • The gadget Otis has to recover has an unknown purpose, and is aptly named the MacGuffininator. This is a clever play on the word MacGuffin, which is a type of trope referring to an object that serves merely as a trigger for the plot.
  • Olympia makes a reference to a Season 1 recurring motif, "If only Sheila could see me now." This breaks the fourth wall when Oona explains that the show isn't "doing that anymore."
