Guest starring



  • Barry Allen refers to a journalistic "Arkham exposé". Arkham, refers to Arkham Asylum, the facility later featured in many Batman films. However, this episode aired before Arkham has appeared or received mention in any of the Batman TV shows/films, making the first reference to Arkham in a Flash TV show and not a Batman related adaptation.
  • While Barry is walking his dog Earl, he passes by a theater showing a double feature of Superman and Batman. Like the Flash, Superman and Batman are DC Comics superheroes.
    • Danny Elfman, who wrote the theme tune of The Flash, also wrote the score for that film and its first sequel Batman Returns.
