  • The episode's title refers to the quote Iris said to Barry in "Mixed Signals"​.
  • When Marlize suggests sending Barry's mind into DeVoe's, Cisco refers to the film Inception, which is based on a similar concept.
  • Ralph makes a reference to Attack of the Clones from the Star Wars franchise during his and Barry's confrontation with the army of DeVoes inside the latter's mind.
  • DeVoe breaks the fourth wall by claiming that there will be no "defeating the big bad this year" to Barry, indirectly referring to his self-proclaimed superiority compared to the Reverse-Flash, Zoom, and Savitar in "Therefore I Am"​.
    • Ironically, this statement came true around the same time on Arrow, as Ricardo Diaz, who'd been the main enemy Oliver had been dealing with in Season 6, escaped justice and didn't take long to return in Season 7, continuing to be a threat.
  • Nora is revealed to be the one who coined the phrase "This house is bitchin'." from "The Flash Reborn" when walking into the West house.
  • This is the first non-Supergirl episode in the Arrowverse that Kara Danvers is mentioned outside of crossovers, as Barry mentions Kara as a possible ally they could contact.
  • A cliffhanger that would have teased the villain for the next season was originally filmed for this episode. However, it was cut due to time constraints and the scene was used in the trailer for Season 5.[2]
  • This marks the final appearance of Neil Sandilands as a series regular.
