Trivia

  • The meta-human who emits purple energy from his eyes and hands that Wally fights could possibly be a reference to Pathfinder, a comic book villain with similar powers.
  • This episode marks the very first appearance of Laurel Lance/Black Siren of Earth-2. She returns in Arrow's "What We Leave Behind" as a recurring character for the duration of the fifth season, and then as a series regular in Arrow from the sixth season onwards in which she eventually finds redemption and becomes "Black Canary," and sometime after joins Team Arrow when her world was destroyed.
  • Throughout the episode, Henry Allen and Tina McGee develop some kind of friendship between each other. This is the reference to the role of John Wesley Shipp and Amanda Pays as Barry Allen/The Flash and Tina McGee respectively in the 1990 TV series The Flash, in which they also had a great friendship.
  • When Hunter has Henry in his possession back at Barry's old house and makes sure to Barry that he'd make him "just like him", just before that you can see, for a second, that Hunter feels conflicted and unsure about what he's doing, almost as if he doesn't want to do it, but as he stated in "Versus Zoom", "You can't lock up the darkness", Hunter's dark side takes control over him, making him carry out the act anyways.
