Notes

  • Nora West-Allen time travels back in time to save his friends who are targeted by Cicada. In each erased timeline, the metahuman killer manages to kill a different member of Team Flash.

Trivia

  • Cisco reminisces being killed by Eobard Thawne in the erased timeline from "Out of Time".
  • During their first date, Cisco tells Kamilla that "his company" is called Ramon Industries. This is a reference to the company owned by Cisco's alternate self, who is also mirrored by Cisco's look, from the Flashpoint Timeline.
  • Cicada is the fifth metahuman to have a coffee named after them at CC Jitters. The other four were The Flash, Zoom, Killer Frost and Kid Flash.
