"Well, I'm sorry, Jay. If this is the only way to save everyone in the city, I have to."
Barry Allen to Jay Garrick
"Enter Flashtime" is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of The Flash, and the eighty-fourth episode overall. It aired on March 6, 2018.


When a nuclear bomb detonates in downtown Central City, Barry, Jesse Quick and Jay Garrick slow down time by entering Flashtime. As everyone in the city is frozen, the three speedsters push themselves to the breaking point to save the city and everyone in it.[1]


  • Cisco refers to Barry as "Miyagi", referencing the character from The Karate Kid franchise.
  • Cisco refers to the nuclear bomb as their "Ark of the Covenant", referring to the legendary object's depiction in the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark, from which a pillar of holy fire rises and shoots oncoming soldiers.
  • Barry calls Iris his "lightning rod". This is a reference to the concept introduced in The Flash: Rebirth. A speedster's "lightning rod" is his or her loved one who can help him or her escape the Speed Force and return to a certain point in time.
  • The group responsible for attempting to set off the nuclear detonation is identified in a video message as the "Eden Corps", with their leader being Veronica Dale. In the New Earth comics, Dale was one of the leaders of the Eden Corps, a terrorist organization that was indirectly responsible for Oliver Queen's death.
