Synopsis for "Shogun"

Appearing in "Shogun"

Featured Characters:

Supporting Characters:

  • Gideon
  • Ichiro Yamashiro (First appearance)
  • Masako Yamashiro (First appearance)


Other Characters:






  • Nate Heywood is turned into a metahuman by Ray Palmer's modified Super-Serum he was injected with in the previous episode.
  • The future Flash, who leaves a voice message to Rip Hunter, is the one from Savitar's Timeline that never experienced the main Barry Allen's journey to his timeline during the events of in The Flash episode, "The Once and Future Flash". As he never met his past counterpart, the original Future Barry never reforms himself and is full of regrets about Savitar's creation which is the reason he leaves his warning.
  • 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 Katana/Tatsu Yamashiro 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.
