Special appearance by

Guest starring






  • This is the first episode where Barry reveals how slow time actually passes for a speedster, even without tapping into his speed.
  • It is revealed by Harry and Jesse that Earth-2 and the rest of the multiverse were unaffected by Flashpoint due to each Earth having a separate timeline.
  • In this episode, Team Flash has two new Post-Flashpoint changes:
    • The Speed lab, a room in S.T.A.R. Labs meant to monitor and train speedsters, taking over for the treadmill.
    • A panic button app, which each member of Team Flash has to call for help if in trouble.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of the Jesse Quick suit, which is a modified version of Trajectory's suit.


  • When Magenta tries to kill Julian, Barry saves him by grabbing him and pulling him out of the way. This is shown in slow motion and Julian is seen moving his feet and stepping along the floor with Barry. However, Julian is not a speedster so his brain would barely be able to register what was happening in that split second (because of how fast Barry runs), let alone him being able to know that he needs to move his feet. On top of that, there is no way Julian would be able to move his legs that fast.
