Notes

  • This episode confirms Nora's time changes also affected her own timeline as Orlin Dwyer replaced David Hersch and, later, an adult Grace Gibbons became his successor.
    • Future Cicada/Grace Gibbons was originally shown in the present Grace's mindscape in "Memorabilia".
  • Kamandi is named for the first time in the Arrowverse continuity but his origin timeline is never revealed in the episode.
    • In a local Multiverse, which was born as a consequence of Barry Allen never creating the Flashpoint,[1] an alternate version of Kamandi is implied to exist on a parallel universe[2] which suggests that Kamandi may come from a parallel universe in the main Multiverse.
