"The Court hereby orders that Bartholomew Henry Allen should be incarcerated for the rest of his natural life without the possibility of parole, and that Mr. Allen be immediately remanded to Iron Heights Penitentiary. And may God have mercy on your soul."

  • The title is a reference to the comic book storyline of the same name.
  • Barry's rambling from "The Flash Reborn" came to light through the repeating of the words, "I'm innocent, Your Honor; I didn't kill anyone".
  • Anton Slater opened his first speech regarding his prosecution of Barry with the words "For you to understand what it is I'm about to tell you today, you need to do something. I need you to believe in the impossible." This echoes the very first line said in the show during Barry's monologue in "Pilot".
  • Harry instructs Cisco to send all of Fallout's emitted radiation to Earth-15, stating that it's a dead Earth. In the comics, Earth-15 is a universe that had existed with near-perfect heroes, but was destroyed by Superman-Prime. In the comics' version of the post-Flashpoint timeline, Earth-15 is replaced with Earth 15, which is simply a barren universe.
    • However, the circumstances of Earth-15's destruction in The Flash's continuity remain unknown.
