"We are recreating Nora's sixteenth birthday party."
This episode, along with iPsycho has a Sam & Cat sequel titled #SuperPsycho.
Nora is about to have a parole hearing, and Carly, Sam, Freddie, and Gibby are invited to give their opinions. Carly originally wanted to vote for her being kept in prison while everyone else is ready to forgive her, but seeing Nora and her parents cry in the courtroom, she agrees to let her go, too.
Nora's mother says they are going to have a special Norwegian supper to welcome her home, but her father says he'd rather go camping by himself. Out of pity, Carly agrees to have supper with the Dershlits and have Spencer pick them up afterward. However, when Spencer comes to get them, he has to use the bathroom, and Nora's mother tricks him into getting trapped in the basement, locking the doors and making it impossible for the iCarly team to leave the house. Nora and her mother reveal that they want to trap the iCarly team and have a party with them that lasts "forever and ever and ever…" to make up for Nora's last birthday party that got her into prison. If anyone tries to escape or hurt Nora and her mother, Spencer will be spun on a wheel.
Gibby tries to escape through the chimney after making a comment about Santa Claus, but gets stuck. He ends up having to endure two kids throwing tennis balls at him because the group forgets that he is there and leaves him even after they escape.
When Nora's father comes home the next day, they hope that he will free them, but it turns out he's just as insane as his wife and daughter.
Meanwhile, T-Bo tries to act fancy in order to appeal to Mrs. Benson and keep his room in Freddie's apartment, but when he has a Video Game party with Spencer and his girlfriend in the Benson apartment and Mrs. Benson comes in, he tells her about his true self and she kicks him out. When he is about to get the last of his possessions, the emergency signal from Freddie's chip is activated and Mrs. Benson immediately realizes that Nora has done something to him again. T-Bo drives her to Nora's house on his motorcycle, where they burst through the front doors, much to Mr. Dershlit's annoyance. A huge fight with the Dershlits ensues, with T-Bo attacking and putting Mr. Dershlit's robe on him backwards, and a sword fight with Mrs. Benson and Nora and her mother. The fight ultimately ends with Sam using Spencer's shock pen on them to knock them out. Grateful that he helped her save her son, Mrs. Benson allows T-Bo to keep his room for $400 a month. As Nora wakes up from being knocked out the iCarly trio tell her that she and her parents will be going to prison forever and ever and ever, thus mimicking her own monologue.
In the middle of the night, Carly and Spencer's dad calls them to make sure they and their friends are okay (apparently, the events of the episode were on the news). While this is going on, Carly suddenly wakes up, realizing that they still haven't found Gibby.
Gibby, as it turns out, is still stuck in the chimney, in the pouring rain, with the two kids still throwing tennis balls at him, much to his discomfort.

- Dan's reason for making the episode:
- "One of the iCarly episodes I hear about (from fans) most is iPsycho. For whatever reason, it got a huge rating and, to this day, when I meet iCarly fans, they often mention iPsycho as one of their favorite episodes. It's one of my faves, too. I loved working with Danielle Morrow (a.k.a. "Nora Dershlit") – and the fight between her and Gibby was epic, don't you think? Anyway, I was thinking about iPsycho a while ago, and I said to myself, "Hey, why not make a 'sequel' to it?" – which is exactly what we did" as quoted in his blog.
- Dan also said in his blog that one scene in the sequel is so "intense" and "crazy" it took almost a whole day to film (most likely the ending scene where Mrs. Benson and T-Bo confront the Dershlits, since a motorcycle was used).
- During the scene when Mrs. Dershlit announces that Nora's birthday party is being recreated, and Nora approaches Freddie, the song lyrics sing "I'm coming, I'm coming to get ya, I'm coming, I'm coming to get ya, I'm coming, I'm coming to get ya right now!"
- This is the third two-part special of any of Dan's shows to have a director other than Steve Hoefer (the previous two being Drake and Josh's Really Big Shrimp and Zoey 101's Spring Break-Up).
- During the opening sequence, a bookmark in the bookmarks toolbar says "Happy New Year" because of the air date.
- When the gang was playing "Stick The Tail On Nora" and during the fight scene, a slideshow of Nora's 16th birthday party is shown on the T.V.
- Gibby's shirt has the word "Robin's Weiners", this is most likely a reference to the hot dog place, "Robin's Weiners", which was mentioned in iBelieve in Bigfoot. Sam most likely made this shirt or bought it since that is her favorite hot dog stand.
- Gibby makes a reference to how he hasn't taken his shirt off in Season 4 and 5 so far. ("I do that less frequently now!") In fact, Noah Munck has stated that in videos.
- Behind-the-scenes photos from iPsycho, were subtly shown in a slideshow gallery on the TV monitor in the Dershlits living room when Nora and her mom started dancing, but nobody was ever seen taking photos.
- There are various photos of Nathan Kress (Freddie) throughout the Benson Apartment.
- Bloopers for this episode were seen in iBloop 2 - Electric Bloopaloo and in this behind-the-scenes video.
- In a blooper released exclusively on iCarly.com, a firecracker is set off to indicate the motorcycle driving through the door (causing most of the characters to hit the deck). However, Jennette McCurdy (Sam) accidentally knocks one of the mannequins over, causing its head to fall off.
- It is unknown how Gibby got out of the chimney at Nora's house.
- The fight scene in this episode is the most violent scene in the series' history, with doors getting knocked over, sword fighting, choking, and people getting pushed over in chairs, yet luckily, no blood was seen.
- There are four references to two other Dan Schneider shows.
- Carly and Sam mention Yerba, a country the cast of Victorious visited in the episode "Locked Up!"
- Sam mentions that "prison isn't fun", there was a similar line used in the Drake and Josh episode "The Gary Grill".
- Gibby said "Kay Kay". On Victorious Cat says Kay Kay a lot.
- Spencer soaks his feet in milk, like how Drake soaked his feet and hands in lizard pee on Drake and Josh and Cat's uncle in chicken fat on Victorious(unseen).
- Another reference possibly is everyone repeating: and ever… was a reference to All That's' "The Island Girls" and the Kenan and Kel episode "Bye Bye Kenan' (Part 2)" towards the ending these shows were also worked on by Dan Schneider.
- Spencer is watching the "Eat fast…Foods" episode of The Cooking Channel version of Hungry Girl (Dan Schneider's wife Lisa Lillien's show) at the end of the episode; you can hear Lillien talking.
- Ryan Seacrest is mentioned again.
- Nora and her parents saying "Forever and ever and ever" and going on with it is a reference to the Grady Girls ghosts in the Stanley Kubrick film "The Shining", continuing a trend from iPsycho where Nora references famous films.
- Gibby's real first name is "Orenthal".
- In the court scene there is a sign that says "NO FOOD OR DRINK ALLOWED", but Gibby, Sam, Carly, Freddie, and the judge have coffee on their table.
- Nora's mom opens the door to let Spencer in. Seconds later it is locked, and the iCarly gang could not exit through it. Nora's mom couldn't have locked it at first, and if she had, the iCarly gang would have noticed, and the lock would've been heard.
- Maurice is clearly a hen, not a rooster. All hens are female, so Maurice must be female, not male.
- The characters' party hats were frequently changed throughout the party scene.
- When Sam picks up the chair and bangs the window, things fall off the table but when the camera is back on, the lamp is still standing, but it was falling off before.
- After Nora is released from prison, Mr. and Mrs. Dershlit tell Nora that they planned a welcome home party and invited people from Ponderosa High School. However, there was a chance that Nora would not be released from prison and if Carly had not insisted that they should release Nora and students showed up, the party would be for nothing.
- Because Spencer was uninvolved last time the iCarly gang was trapped at Nora's house, Spencer would be unsure how to get there, unless of course Carly texted him the directions sometime after she texted him to pick up her, Sam, Freddie and Gibby at 9:00 P.M. or sooner.
- It is unknown why Sam or Gibby could not break down the door to escape. In iBust a Thief, Sam broke down the old lady's door along with Freddie's door. In iPsycho, Gibby broke down the exact same door that was trapping him.
- However, it is possible they did not do this because they did not want to leave Spencer on the wheel, but they could have broken down the basement door as well. It is also possible that because they were in Nora's living room, they could have been caught by her and her parents, or they changed the bolts and screws.
- Spencer should understand or at least scream when he was being "tied" on the spinning wheel by Mrs. Dershlit, but no sound is heard.
- In iGo to Japan, Spencer lost the tracking device for Freddie's chip, but Mrs. Benson had one in her bag. But she could have bought a new one. But then Freddie would need to get a new chip installed in his head.
- Photos from iPsycho are shown, but Nora never took any pictures then, and in this episode said she hated that night, so she probably would not put up memories of it.
- Nora said that Gibby was gone for 12 hours but he left around 10:30 PM and they woke up around 7:30 AM the next day. So he would have only been gone for 9 hours, not 12.
- Same thing when she said that Gibby was gone for 15 hours, but it was 9:30 AM so he would have been gone for 11 hours, not 15.
- In iGet Pranky, Sam had used the shock pen on Freddie which should have shorted out the chip then.
- It is possible that it did not short out the chip because in iGet Pranky, Sam shocks Freddie in the neck.
- When Nora regained consciousness after being shocked, her close up scenes show her shrug's right sleeve has fallen down, exposing her right shoulder. When the scene switches to the entire group, her sleeve is back in place.
- At the end of the episode, Gibby is still stuck in Nora's chimney, he would've gotten out when the police arrived and yet, was still stuck there but is out of there with no sign or mention in the next episode. It is unknown why he was still stuck at the end and how he got out of the chimney.
- At the end of the episode, the two kids are still throwing balls at Gibby, but, according to Spencer, it was 2:00 A.M. and there was a storm. Both kids should have been in bed asleep and even if they were not, they would not be out in the storm.
- Cassie probably would have been worried that Spencer was missing, and went looking for him.
- On the inside of the house, the chimney is in the middle of the house. On the outside of the house, the chimney is at the very rear of the house.
- The iCarly group could have used the shock pen much earlier on the Dershlits.
- Nora and her parents (and in the end, the iCarly gang) chanting "Forever ... and ever ... and ever ..."
- As the sequel to "iPsycho" this is the second appearance of Nora Dershlit and her pet chicken, Maurice.
- In iPsycho, Carly said that she felt bad for calling the cops on Nora, but in this episode she did not want Nora to get out of prison and did not feel bad for calling the cops, though she did let Nora go in the end. Sam had no sympathy for calling the cops on Nora in that episode, but she said that Nora should be released in this episode.
- Carly mentions in one of her Blogs that Caleb (played by Jim Parsons) told her that Nora would get out of jail and kidnap the iCarly crew again.
- From this episode on, Carly, Sam, Freddie, and Gibby no longer have their original Pear Phones when Nora blends them.
- This is the second time Nora has captured the iCarly gang, this time for (most likely) revenge against iCarly.
- Sam was wearing two different color socks. This is a reference to iChristmas where Carly said Sam wears two unmatching socks because Sam believes it is good luck.
- Freddie's mom mentions the Fencin' Bensons again as she fights off Nora and her mother with their swords. She also brings out her fencing abilities in order to defeat them.
- The Butter Sock returns for a third time.
- The Shock Pen from iGet Pranky returns, when Freddie gets electrocuted, and when Sam defeats Nora.
