Extended: Nya, Jay, Zane, Pixal and Lloyd board a new submarine - the Hydro Bounty - and set off to find the source of the energy signal disrupting Nya's powers. When chores are mysteriously completed, the ninjas discover that they have a stowaway - Maya, and as they near the Tartarus Trench - the source of the energy pulse - the sub is attacked and sinks to the bottom of the ocean, now powerless and trapped.

- Endless Sea
- Narrator: P.I.X.A.L.
- The title of the episode is very similar to the title of The Island's first episode, "Uncharted," as both are one-word adjectives beginning with the prefix -'un'.
- Jay believing that the submarine being haunted by a ghost butler named "Ducklesworth" is a reference the ghost butler Duckworth from the 2017 version of Ducktales.
- Cole references the Titanic when he says that something unsinkable will usually end up sinking.
- This could be a reference to J.B. Priestley's 'An Inspector Calls', when Mr. Birling describes the Titanic as being "unsinkable... absolutely unsinkable".
- This is the second time a ninja stays behind, in this case, Kai and Cole. The first was Zane in "Level Thirteen."
- Zane, who has downloaded thousands of books and movies with sailors and pirates and speaks almost the entire episode with a pirate accent, refers to "Ninjago Confidential," where he downloaded thousands of books and movies about detectives and spoke with a detective accent.
- The Hydro Bounty makes its debut in this episode and becomes the second vehicle based on the Destiny's Bounty, but adapted to a specific environment. The first was the Land Bounty.
- This is the first episode where the ninja (except for Kai and Cole) are wearing their Scuba suits.
- Maya, who tells Jay that she will teach him how to bleach his boxer shorts, refers to a repeated joke about Jay's underwear in Legacy of the Green Ninja, Sons of Garmadon and March of the Oni.
- When the Hydro Bounty was attacked, P.I.X.A.L.'s shoulder pads are missing in multiple frames.
- At the end of the episode, when P.IX.A.L. says that all the Hydro Bounty's systems are down, there are still lights turned on, indicating there is power left in the vessel.
