Notes

  • This episode is mainly set in the original version of Nora's Future prior to the events of "We Are the Flash".
    • It reveals that, in the original timeline, Cicada/David Hersch was still active as of 2030.
      • Some time between 2030 and Thawne's arrest, his dagger was somehow obtained by the authorities who, however, never managed to capture Cicada.
    • It also marks the only time that the original version of the Crisis from 2024 is glimpsed in any Arrowverse continuity.
      • The video footage shows Red Skies on Earth and Oliver Queen calling out Barry who is saying goodbye to Nora before he eventually vanished.
  • The CCPD Captain from Nora's Future, Darrel Frye, was never shown to exist in the main Arrowverse continuity. However, Darrel Frye is a member of CCPD on an alternate reality in a local Multiverse which was born as a consequence of Barry Allen never creating the Flashpoint Timeline.[1][2][3]

Trivia

  • Post 92 "#WTShrap?!" is The Chronicles of Cisco post regarding this episode.[4]
  • Nora waking up in the Central City Hospital by hearing Lady Gaga's Poker Face mirrors her father waking up in the same circumstances in "Pilot".
  • Thawne's monologue about the Speed Force from this episode is exactly the same he said to Barry in "Tricksters".
