  • This episode marks the first (and only) time that a main cast member was not present for the episode. The cast member not present was Paula Marshall (Iris West) due to the character being written out of the series. This leaves only three cast members to appear in every episode: John Wesley Shipp (Barry Allen), Amanda Pays (Tina McGee), and Alex Désert (Julio Mendez).
  • Bellows and Murphy report a murder on Gardner and Fox. A reference to Gardner Fox, the co-creator of Jay Garrick, the Golden Age Flash.
