- The title of this episode directly relates to several characters and their respective plot points of the episode: Harry becomes addicted to using the Thinking Cap and in doing so alters his mind and attitude, Caitlin loses her Killer Frost abilities after finally starting to connect with her alter-ego, and Ralph, Edwin Gauss, Matthew Kim and Janet Petty are absorbed by DeVoe.
- Gauss refers to Ralph as "Magnum, P.I.", referencing the TV series of the same name.
- Cisco constructs a model of the USS Enterprise, a starship from the Star Trek franchise. He also uses a Scottish accent, referencing original series character Montgomery "Scotty" Scott.
- When Harry throws around items looking for his Thinking Cap, Cisco calls him "Captain Caveman", referencing the title character from the TV series Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
- After Barry knocks Ralph out, Ralph describes him having gone "Thor, son of Odin" on him, using an English accent. This is likely a reference to the Marvel Cinematic Universe character of the same name.
- Cisco describes Joe to have gone "all John McClane" in a speech, referencing the protagonist of the Die Hard franchise.
- When Gauss is describing The Thinker's lair and both DeVoes, he refers to DeVoe as looking like Professor X. This is a reference to the Marvel character Charles Xavier/Professor X.
