Trivia

  • This is the first episode of the series not to credit Victor Garber in the starring bill since his departure in the previous episode, "Crisis on Earth-X, Part 4", since he was cast in the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!. This is also the last episode to credit Franz Drameh as a series regular as he is downgraded to special guest star for the rest of the season.
  • The fictional Beebo craze that takes place in 1992 is similar to the real-life Tickle Me Elmo craze in 1996. In addition, the signs inside the toy store look exactly like the street sign used on Sesame Street.
  • When 1992 Martin Stein attempts to procure a Beebo doll with a bow and arrow, the theme music from Arrow can be heard in the background.
  • This episode contains several references to the Back to the Future trilogy.
    • Martin exclaims, "Great Scott!" after being time-displaced, possibly a reference to the phrase commonly spoken by the time traveler Doc Brown in these films.
    • When Jax requests that Martin open a letter on a specific date, the latter claims to have seen Back to the Future, referencing the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II, in which Emmett Brown has a letter saved for 70 years by the postal service for Marty McFly to open on a specific date at a specific time, detailing how his sudden disappearance was the result of time travel, having sent him back in time.
      • However, since Martin was mortally injured on Earth-X and managed to make it back to Earth-1 to die, Jax's efforts would be futile since The Flash previously established that changing the timeline of one universe doesn't affect the timeline of another, so Martin would've been shot no matter what Jax did or even if the letter was read.[2]
      • This may also be a reference to the first Back to the Future film, where Marty seemingly witnesses Doc's murder in 1985. He accidentally travels back to 1955 and gives 1955 Doc a letter containing details about the latter's future, which he says Doc shouldn't open until 1985.
      • Despite having seen the film, older Martin has previously claimed not to have known who Doc Brown was.[3] This may be the result of a side-effect of the aberration older Stein caused, which led to Lily's birth. However, he expresses a dislike of the film, indicating he may simply have forgotten details of the movie.
  • Zari and Jax play Mortal Kombat II, playing as Mileena and Jax Briggs, respectively.
  • Leo Snart has joined the Legends as of this episode.
  • Voiced by Ray Palmer, Beebo praises Jesus Christ as the one true God, while also saying that doesn't mean that science, global warming or evolution aren't real. This is confirmed to be the case in Earth-1, which has God, angels, and demons coexisting with dinosaurs and meta-humans, and Eobard Thawne was shown to stop global warming in "Doomworld".
    • The line also parodies the stereotype of Christian people denying that science, global warming, and evolution exist.
  • Young Martin is seen shopping from Toys Are We, a reference to the Toys "R" Us toy shop.
  • When Zari blows him with wind, Darhk sarcastically asks, "What, are you going to huff and puff till you blow my house in?" This is a clear reference to the Big Bad Wolf's famous line in the fairy tale The Three Little Pigs.
  • As of this episode, Sara Lance, Ray Palmer, Mick Rory, and Gideon are the only founding members of the Legends remaining on the team; Rip Hunter, Jefferson Jackson, and Kendra Saunders retired, Carter Hall, Martin Stein, and Leonard Snart died, and Nate, Amaya Jiwe, and Zari Tomaz joined more recently.
  • John Constantine mentions to Sara that he saved her soul, referring to the events of Arrow's "Haunted".
  • The events of this episode are alluded to in Post 71 "In Memorium Beebo 1992-2018" of The Chronicles of Cisco.
    • This likely means that the events of this episode are historically documented, or the Legends told Cisco about them.
  • Leif Eriksson referred to the Native Americans as "Skræling", which is the actual name the Norse used to describe the peoples they encountered in North America. Their view of the natives as "fierce warriors" is also historically accurate.
  • Ray's reference to the coefficient of "sinusoidal depleneration" is a homage to the Turboencabulator, a fictional machine described with technical-sounding, but meaningless terms.
