Other Characters:






  • In an erased timeline, Eobard Thawne manages to kill Trevor Shinick and the other Iron Heights guards: however, XS and Flash are able to reverse time and erase the timeline by preventing the guards' death.
  • This episode confirms that Eobard Thawne is immune to change in the timeline due to his Negative Speed Force connection which basically makes him a living paradox.
  • Nora's Future is erased as a consequence of the destruction of Cicada's Dagger which causes the death of Cicada/Grace Gibbons as well as the creation of a new future timeline.
    • Nora West-Allen refuses to save herself by escaping into the Negative Speed Force so she is erased from existence along with her own future.
    • As a consequence of the creation of the new timeline, the Crisis is somehow shifted from 2024 to 2019.


  • After meeting Team Flash, Eobard Thawne states that Ralph Dibny should be dead. This is a reference to Ralph's Pre-Flashpoint incarnation who died in the Particle Accelerator explosion as Eobard Thawne also mentioned in Power Outage.
