Special appearance by

Guest starring






  • H.R. once again welcomes Julian as "James", referencing the British spy James Bond.
  • After Wally is treated for his injuries, Cisco claims that trouble "never stops never stopping". This is possibly a reference to the 2016 film Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
  • H.R. attempts to pull everyone together by calling the four guys the "Four Amigos", apparently referencing a movie on Earth-19. This itself is a reference to the 1986 film ¡Three Amigos!.
  • Cisco refers to Julian as Linda Blair, referencing the actress' role as the possessed child Regan MacNeil in the 1973 film The Exorcist and its sequel.
  • When Barry asks Savitar why they're enemies, he replies through Julian, "Because we had to be, only one of us could live." This closely resembles the prophecy from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: "Either must die at the hand of the other, for neither can live while the other survives."
  • Julian refers to himself as "Judas" when he talks about the one that could possibly betray the team. Judas Iscariot was the one who betrayed Jesus Christ to the Romans. Tom Felton had a role in the 2016 movie Risen, which was centered around the story of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion.
  • This was the first episode where Savitar's appearance was not CGI and a practical suit was introduced.
  • When Wally was hallucinating Savitar to which the hallucination of Savitar becomes Barry as the Flash, it foreshadows his true identity as an evil future version of Barry in the episode "I Know Who You Are".
  • The showdown between Wally and Savitar takes place at the old Kob Factory. David Kob serves as story editor on the show.
