Guest starring



  • This is the first season premiere of The Flash not to feature Jesse L. Martin (Joe West). It is also the only episode of Armageddon where Joe does not appear in any way.
  • Caitlin states Barry can run 4000 MPH.
  • It's confirmed Season 7 ended during 2021, since Barry and Caitlin mentioned Frost being angry at Chillblaine all summer and fall.
  • 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, with Barry stating that he now knows how Diggle feels.
  • 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.
  • From time to time, 'Royal Flush Gang' uses quotes from the song 'The Gambler' sung by Kenny Rogers, like when Queen says 'I Know How to Fold them.'
  • 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.
