- "It's called Fire & Ice, an abstract modern-day masterpiece said to represent the dichotomy of being."
- —Leonard Snart to Mick Rory[src]
Osgood and Rachel Rathaway bought Fire & Ice from a Paris auction at a cost of $25 million; this act generated a fuss and caught Leonard Snart's attention, who broached the idea to his partner, Mick Rory. After hearing the description of the painting (representing the dichotomy of being), Rory claimed what Fire & Ice really represented was that "people with lots of money buy dumb stuff"; he was unimpressed until he heard the price the painting was sold for. The duo then successfully stole the painting. To show his good faith in regards to Snart's decision-making skills, Rory fired the Heat Gun at the piece, thus destroying Fire & Ice.
Behind the scenes
- For some unexplained reason, although in news media the art is photographed to have the reddish side on the right, when the painting is seen being physically carried and placed, it is shown displaying the opposite way (whitish side on the right); both during the handling of Rathaways' employees, and when sitting on the side after Snart and Rory took it into possession.
- In the show, when the phrase "fire and ice" is first brought up in "", it is generally seen as referencing certain characters and the alter egos of their DC comic book counterparts.
- In the DC comics, however, there is actually a duo commonly seen together and called as such, with names of their alter egos being exactly Fire and Ice.
- Fire's secret identity has already been previously name-dropped in the episode "", whereas Ice's (Tora Olafsdotter) has yet to be referenced in the show.
