  • This episode confirms that Icicle's experiment turned Carla Tannhauser into a cryokinetic meta, like him and Frost.
  • Deon Owens states that Iris' Time Sickness is a consequence of the creation (and the undoing) of the Armageddon Timeline.
    • However, this is a continuity error as she was already affected by the Time Sickness in the previous season.
    • As a side-effect of the Sickness, Iris is unwillingly erasing objects and people from the timeline.
