  • This is the first season premiere of The Flash not to feature Jesse L. Martin (Joe West).
  • Caitlin states Barry can run 4000 MPH.
  • It's confirmed Season 7 ended during summer 2021, since Barry and Caitlin mentioned Frost being angry at Chillblaine all summer and fall.
    • Allegra also states it's been six months since.
  • Nora Darhk's status as a fairy godmother and marriage to Ray is known to not just the Legends; Team Flash found out at an unspecified time.
  • The way that Ray suits up as the Atom at the Tech Con is very similar to how Clark Kent suited up as Superman in "The Adventures of Supergirl".
  • Atom shrinking Barry through the car Despero throws at them in slow-motion is similar to the opening of Deadpool.
  • Barry got nauseous after being shrunk by Ray Palmer in a similar way that John Diggle got nauseous after being moved by Barry.
  • The Central City Citizen has evolved into Central City Citizen Media; thanks to Sue Dearbon buying a building for Team Citizen to work at and expands their membership.
  • There is a new Royal Flush Gang consisting on a group of meta-humans. Previously there were two gangs: one that consisted on a family of regular robbers who operated in Star City before Oliver Queen stopped their criminal activities, and a second gang consisting of bikers who were arrested by the Flash.
    • This new group lacks an Ace, the fifth member of the gang.
  • Ray states that he hasn't met with Nate Heywood in a while due to the latter rarely being in the present day, which might be a reference to how the Legends are currently lost in time; unknown to everyone, the Waverider has been destroyed.
  • The newspaper article about the Royal Flush Gang seen in Barry's flashback was written by Mason Bridge.
