  • This episode takes place some time after the DC's Legends of Tomorrow series finale, "Knocked Down, Knocked Up" as Nate Heywood has already parted ways with the Legends.
    • It also takes place after the ending of the Earth-Prime #3 story, "The (Ex) Legends of Tomorrow", which featured Ray Palmer reuniting with a retired Nate Heywood.
  • It is revealed that, as a consequence of Barry Allen preventing Thawne from killing Nora Allen and causing the Flashpoint, the timeline separated this version of Thawne from the "Harrison Wells" version that Barry has been facing in the Post-Flashpoint continuity.
  • Ray Palmer reveals to Team Flash that the alternate Thawne was brought back to life, after being murdered by the Black Flash in 1916,[1] to be the Fixer of the World War I's Fixed Point in time.[2]
    • As a reward for helping the Legends and heroically dying in the process,[2] the Time Wraiths brought him back to life once again on present Earth-Prime without his past, evil memories.
  • John Diggle asks for Eobard Thawne/"Harrison Wells"' help in opening the box he found after Oliver Queen's funeral.[3]
    • However, after accepting his destiny and opening the box, he chooses to refuse the power inside the box.


  • Eobard Thawne mentions the "Orrery of Worlds", referring to the collection of infinite realities of the Multiverse. In the comics, the Orrery of Worlds is a part of the Post-Flashpoint Multiverse where all the universes exist.
  • In the comics, the serpent creatures from the Morlaidh dimension are actually the alien race of Katarthans who hails from Morlaidh.
