  • Nate Heywood is turned into a metahuman by Ray Palmer's modified Super-Serum he was injected with in the previous episode.
  • The Legends finds a voice message from a future version of Barry Allen.
  • It is implied that Masako and Ichiro are Maseo Yamashiro's ancestors and, as a consequence, the katana Masako wields in this episode is the same that Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana uses in modern days.


  • In the real life, Tokugawa Iemitsu died in 1651 so the Legends definitely altered the timeline by killing him ten years earlier.
  • Among the many aliases, Nate Heywood suggests to call himself Citizen Steel which is a reference to his superhero name in the comics.
