Listen anon, I have to break it to you (at least those of you who still take this seriously):
There is no grand plan.
The sliding scale of continuity went from semi-soft to super-soft. What you see is what you get. There is the overarching plot of Mina and Globgor, but that is it, anything else doesn't really matter. If you think it does, you'll bring nothing but disappointment upon yourself.
There are no foreshadowing, only throwaway jokes. There is no hidden meaning just whatever the acting writer for the episode brainstormed the week before production started. There is no hard character development, just a dimension the character acts on, maybe a dimension and a half if the episode calls for some aesop.
I know you wanted this to be a show that makes full use of the setting and cast, but it simply doesn't. Again, sorry.
You have to wake up anon.
