Trivia

  • The episode's title is a reference to the film franchise The Fast and the Furious.
  • This was previously meant to be the eleventh episode of the season, with an episode titled "Spin Out" taking its place. However, due to unknown circumstances, The Flash and the Furious was moved closer, and the 11th episode ended up being "Seeing Red".
  • At Weather Witch's trial, Cecile mentions the dates November 20th and the 27th a reference to when the the episodes the "The Icicle Cometh" and "O Come, All Ye Thankful", the latter featuring Weather Witch came out.
  • According to Danielle Panabaker, Grant Gustin had little screen-time due to his commitment to the Elseworlds crossover at the time filming for this episode was still happening.[1]
  • Nora references the fact that Barry wore the Green Arrow suit during Elseworlds. However, she wasn't in the crossover to see him wearing it.
  • Caitlin quotes a famous line from the film, The Breakfast Club and states that it is one of the few films she and Frost agree on.
  • The prototype car built by Wayne Enterprises is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
  • Silver Ghost is the ninth case of gender-bending on the show, the eight others were, Brie Larvan/Bug-Eyed Bandit, Linda Park/Dr. Light, Rosa Dillon/Top, Mina Chaytan/Black Bison, Izzy Bowin/The Fiddler, Janet Petty/Null and Spencer Young/Spin, and Joss Jackam/Weather Witch.
  • Silver Ghost's hideout has a sign on the wall for 'King Samson's Auto Works.' King Samson was a henchman of the original Silver Ghost.
  • When Cisco says "Holy Buckaroo Banzai" he is referencing the 1984 movie "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension".
  • Gideon may not know or differentiate between doppelgängers as she refers to Sherloque as Dr. Wells despite him being a detective. This is further supported by the fact that when Harry Wells activated her in "Null and Annoyed", Gideon tells him that it has been 1,078 days since "they" last spoke. From the date that the aforementioned episode first aired, that day is April 28, 2015 (the premiere date of "The Trap"), which would mean that in that instance, she was referring to Thawne disguised as Harrison Wells.

  • Caitlin describes Raya van Zandt as a "former Air Force ace pilot" but the screen shows her rank as an Airman First Class. This is an enlisted rank and all Air Force pilots are officers.
  • Despite it being "cold where we're going" when Caitlin and Cisco breach into her dad's old lab (at the north pole) their breath makes no visible vapor trails.
