  • The events of Earth-Prime #6 confirms that the Star City 2040 future and Nora West-Allen's Future were merged by Oliver Queen in a single continuity in the Post-Crisis Multiverse. In the new continuity:
    • Mia and William grew up together with the rest of their family so she never became a fighter in this timeline;
    • J.J. Diggle never became Deathstroke and did not join the Deathstroke Gang;
    • Connor Hawke never joined the Knightwatch and but he eventually became an addicted;
    • Star City and The Glades were never splitted so that Rene Ramirez is the mayor of Star City;
    • Dinah Drake was somehow time-displaced to this timeline one day after the funeral of Oliver Queen from "Fadeout".
  • The Canaries averts a possible future where Bianca Bertinelli's kidnapping eventually leads to riots in Star City.
  • The episode was a Backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series, with the same title, on the CW. However, it ended up not going to series.[1]


  • The original title of this episode was "Livin' in the Future" which would have been a reference to Bruce Springstreen's song of the same name like other penultimate episodes of Arrow".[2]
