716, which also features Sean.
Seems to be a callback heavy episode.

I think that was an error, Sean is meant to appear in 717, "Fry and Leela's Big Fling". 716 is "T.: The Terrestrial".

Okay. New contemplations:
Boxing -> Needs mouth protector -> Some of them are really colorful -> Fry was shown with coloured teeth when an Omicronian Doctor examined him (after a KO maybe?)...yep, a boxing subplot/scene could go along with the preview material we have been shown.

Hmm, what could have caused Bender to go in  a boxing match with Fry, though? Bender looks pretty pissed in that image; it seems odd to me that he'd actually hurt Fry. I know he wouldn't hesitate to KO anyone else, but I thought his soft spot for his meatbag would be too big.
Could it be a staged fight perhaps?

I don't think Bender could ever kill Fry, hurting him however, he's never had a problem.

Possibly both obvious points, but just in case:

1) That boxing picture looks like it's in a frame, so probably a past event that may not otherwise actually appear in the episode. It may just be referenced briefly as a gag.

2) The image is an obvious allusion to this famous image of Muhammed Ali knocking out Joe Frazier:

That seems likely. It was same thing with the prom photo last year.

in the bottom DXC wrote "Jane - Is this a photo frame on wall?" so this might not be an important point of the episode, maybe it is only showed as an example.

Possibly, but the art is of a photo in the episode, not an actual scene (that we know of...).

Tell me if I'm mistaken, but the normal Omicronians usually do not sport capes.

My guess is they'll acknowledge that. Or maybe they won't, they've ignored bigger continuity fuck ups.

So I'm guessing T: The Terrestrial is going to act like E.T. with Fry as the alien to the Omicronian world. Also it'll probably have Lrrr trying to raise Jrrr as the next ''Ruler of the planet Omicron Persei 8'', but Jrrr will try to refuse him because he likes humans like his poppler self and save Fry. Something along those lines is probably going to happen.

For Dwight, Cubert, and the Orphans not aging, that's simply just the writers keeping status quo. If the show wasn't cancelled by Fox and continued for a few years, then I could've seen the writers have them become teenagers and age the show for more plot lines, but if they just aged them immediately to late teenage boys at Season 5-6, it would've been a little confusing and annoying to people who liked their normal selves better.

Hopefully they don't address this continuity problem outside of maybe a few jokes. I'd rather they just left them stuck in a age time loop than make a full episode about them taking hormones or getting surgery just to make it work.

So Jrr is back. I wonder if they'll make a callback to Amy(/Leelas?) and Kifs children at all?

Also, this scene reminds me of when they tried to harvest Frys "lower horn". Although this time he appears to look resigned to his fate.

Its also the same two guards in the background who were involved with horn removal.

Yep, that was a Hein's speculation based on the boxing picture.

Interesting point. So far, Futurama has rather been reluctant when it comes to killing of regluar characters, unlike Simpsons (Maude Flanders, etc..).
As LRRR turned during the series into another "henpecked husband with a nagging wife" (and as there is no lack of that trope in comedy), NDND's departure will not result in a too big loss.
Though, I prefer if they went back to  the older constellation featuring LRRR and NDND . Rare, occasional reminders that even the most menacing monster shares some human behaviour (the nagging wife a home, served in SMALL doeses), but being an intimidating figure most of the time.
The "When Aliens Attack" LRRR, and not the "lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences" LRRR.

Although this time he appears to look resigned to his fate.
Because Fry is obviously sick. Check out that trailer, in which he's got colorful teeth.

Yep, that was a Hein's speculation based on the boxing picture.

Mere speculation, of course. Though -having seen that kind of mouthguard IRL myself- it does in fact REALLY make one person look sick* (and quite a tad stupid, too tongue).  Also, I would prefer the "Aliens do not understand a harmless human thing and mistake it for a grave disease" instead of "Let's make up an illness colouring someone's teeth, that scares Aliens".

*(Not that sick that you'd refuse to hit that person, though big grin) )

Yeah, Lrrr has become a bit a joke recently. I sort of miss that ruthless Alien overlord Lrrr (not that I don't like the lazy, incompetent Lrrr in small amounts). Personally, I think "Spanish Fry" gave the perfect mix of the two.

At least we still have Morbo to play the scary alien.

Yep. Morbo had his (small share) of nagging wife whom annoyed him by demonstratively fixing the tie in public, and his moment of cowardice when he shouted "We are DOOOOMED" and was the first one to shit his pants and flee.
Yet, those were served in the appropriate small doses. Making those exception special and meaningful moments.
Yet, most of his time, he remained the evil monstrous Alien.

Well, Fry's unknown (possibly) sickness could be the reason why he is being marooned on that planet.

BLINKY!(right?) Cute fish, wonder how he got up there... real nice image anyway^^
