- This episode is the fifth and final part of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, continuing from the Arrow episode "Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Four".
- The Multiverse is reborn and the different realities of Earth-1, Earth-38 and Black Lightning's are merged into a single continuity based on Earth-Prime.
- As in the other parts of the crossover, other DC's properties are introduced in the new iteration of the Multiverse.
- Earth-2 is rewritten to be the setting of Stargirl with the first appeareance of the Justice Society of America.
- Earth-12 was already shown to be as a Green Lantern-based reality and the Post-Crisis continuity follows this pattern, showing that it is the setting of the movie Green Lantern, using a scene from the movie where Hal Jordan travels to Oa.
- This cameo can be also seen as a reference on the upcoming HBO Max's Green Lantern TV show.
- Earth-19 is rewritten to be the setting of the 2019 Swamp Thing show with the cameo of Derek Mears as the titular hero Swamp Thing.
- Earth-21 is shown to be the reality of the Doom Patrol TV show, with the cameo of the titular superhero team, using behind the scenes footage.
- Earth-9 and Earth-96 are shown to still be the home of Titans and Superman Returns. Off-screen, it is confirmed that every reality was restored after the rebirth of the Multiverse.
- A new Big Bang, caused by the Spectre and the Paragons' energies, restored the Multiverse, recreating every Pre-Crisis reality (but replacing some of them with others) and adding brand new universes.
- Earth-Prime is created as the union of Earth-1, Earth 38 and Black Lightning's Earth. Its history is a mix of the backgrounds of the three realities and its residents are not aware of their Pre-Crisis origins.
- Oliver Queen is considered dead in the new reality, having sacrificed himself during the Crisis.
- At the end of the episode, Oliver's voice can be heard, describing the rebirth of every realities, so it can be presumed that he's somehow still existing as The Spectre in synch with the Multiverse.
- The Anti-Monitor survived the battle at the Dawn of Time and arrived on the new reality to finally defeat its enemies. As the Multiversal entity was too strong to be killed once and for all, he is banished into the Microverse, using the combined knowledge of Ryan Choi and Ray Palmer.
- The all-out battle between the heroes of Earth-Prime and the Anti-Monitor's forces is a callback to the ending of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths.
- The Anti-Monitor also became a giant version of himself which is a callback to his Pre-Crisis counterpart's appearance and, more recently, the Anti-Life version of Rebirth Mobius.
- Oliver Queen's sacrifice inspires his friends to create a new team, composed by Flash, Superman, White Canary, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Black Lightning and Batwoman, in order to defend Earth from future menaces.
- Oliver Queen is considered an honorary member as his sacrifice granted the formation of the team.
- Roger Hayden's prophecy that Worlds will live. Worlds will die. And the universe will never be the same is finally fulfilled as some Earths were destroyed while a new Earth rose in their places.
- Crisis on Infinite Earths confirmed that the Doom Patrol from Titans is a different incarnation of the titual superhero team of Doom Patrol as the two show are set on different realities.
- This episode also follows the pattern of naming realities after important years:
- Earth-19's designation of Swamp Thing is a reference on 2019 which is its year of release.
- Earth-2's designation of Stargirl is a reference to the presence of the Justice Society of America that, in the comics, appeared for the first time on Earth-Two.
- It is revealed that, on Earth-Prime, Clark and Lois has two sons instead of one.
- This would be explored in the new TV series Superman and Lois.
- Lex Luthor is referred as a hero and he has become D.E.O.'s boss in the new reality.
- Lyla Michaels seems to have lost his Monitor-granted powers while his son J.J. Diggle and her daughter Sara Diggle are both shown to be alive in the new reality, mixing the Pre-Flashpoint and Post-Flashpoint Earth-1 continuities.
- Nash Wells lost his Pariah powers in the same way after the Crisis.
- Marv Wolfman cameos in the episode as a fictional version of himself.
