- At CC Jitters, Caitlin tells Ronnie about the time a boomerang flew in S.T.A.R. Labs and Cisco took the blame for the damage it did, referring to the events of .
- This is the first episode to mention time travel. The two consequences of mentioned in this episode in layman's terms means you either a) set history in place with time travel (Predestination Paradox) or b) actually alter history:
- The Terminator reference shows that by sending Kyle Reese and the Terminator back in time to protect and kill Sarah Conner respectively, this evidently set history in its correct course of events for John Conner and Skynet to be born; therefore, not altering history, which is a predestination paradox.
- The Back to the Future reference means time traveling actually alters history.
- At the West house, Caitlin claims that Ronnie is from Coast City, which is the home of Hal Jordan, also known as Green Lantern.
- Mason tells Iris her physics paper may as well be written in Dothraki. Dothraki is a fictional language in George R. R. Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire, and its TV adaptation, Game of Thrones. It is the language spoken the Dothraki tribe and one of the major characters, Daenerys Targaryen.
- Barry breaks the fourth wall in this episode when he says, "Impossible's just another Tuesday for us," since new episodes of air on Tuesday nights.
- When Iris says Ronnie looks familiar, his reply, "I have one of those faces.", is a reference to what Oliver said to Felicity Smoak in the Season 1 episode "".
- When Caitlin examines Barry after the chemical attack, the wound on his side is shaped like the state of Virginia. Grant Gustin has a tattoo in the same spot shaped like his home state, Virginia.
- When Eiling has Stein tortured, he has him shocked and says "the last time I did this was on a gorilla." This is a reference to Gorilla Grodd, who later appears at the end of the episode.
- This is the first episode in which Harrison Wells is seen wearing the Reverse-Flash suit without a mask.
- When Ronnie and Professor Stein separate near the end of the episode, the Quantum splicer is missing from Ronnie's chest.
- While Barry and Linda are on the phone, "Answer" and "Ignore" can be seen on Barry's screen, as if he had never picked up the phone on the first place.
