* DecompositeCharacter: Ray reveals his late fiancee's full name as Anna Loring. In the comics it's Jean Loring, but that character already appeared on ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Season 2 as the Queen family's attorney [[AgeLift and was closer in age to Oliver and Thea's mother, Moira]]. Whether Anna and Jean are related is not yet stated by WordOfGod.

Whether Anna and Jean (or [[Recap/TheFlash2014S6E12AGirlNamedSue John]]) are related is not yet stated by WordOfGod.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: When Stein tells Ray he can't miss the fragments in Kendra's bloodstream as they are "as big as icebergs", Ray jokes "tell that to the Titanic." Victor Garber played Thomas Andrews, the designer of the Titanic, in the most famous [[Film/Titanic1997 film]] about the disaster.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Ray cites the Scout Motto as "Be helpful to others." This is somewhat askew; the Scout Motto is, of course "Be Prepared." A portion of the Scout ''Oath'' states "...to help other people at all times...", and Point Three of the Scout ''Law'' is "[A Scout is] Helpful."


* PrettyInMink: Sara is wearing one in the bank fight scene. Doubles as BadassLongcoat.

** When infiltrating the party, she wears a black coat with a white fur collar.


* BigDamnHeroes: Snart, Mick and Jax save Rip and Sara as well as Carter's corpse from Savage and his {{Cult}} during the climatic scene.

* AGodAmI: Vandal Savage declares this (after a fashion) in a particularly [[ChewingTheScenery scenery-chewing]] moment.
-->'''Vandal Savage:''' [[{{Cult}} Everyone here]] is sworn to live and ''die'' at my command. Why? Because to them ''I'' am a ''god''!

As Kendra still recovers from the shock of Carter's death, Rip and Sara decide to hunt down Savage's finances in an attempt to cripple him. Meanwhile Snart and Mick decide to take a little joy ride.

Added DiffLines:

** Stein (Victor Garber) tells Ray that a fragment in Kendra's blood is the size of an iceberg and can't be missed and Ray wonders if that is how they felt on the Titanic. Victor Garber appeared in ''Film/Titanic1997'' as Thomas Andrews.


* TheSeventies: TheTeam is stuck stuck at 1975, though they're heading to [[TheEighties 1986]] at the end of the episode.

* SherlockScan: Sara uses one to determine that A) the "bank employees" are {{Professional Killer}}s and B) are onto her and Rip and are planning to kill them.

* StartOfDarkness: While Lewis Snart was never a great parent, he was still somewhat decent until he went to prison. Then everything went to hell after that. Snart tries to prevent this, [[YouCantFightFate but history isn't having any.]]

Added DiffLines:

** More likely that Savage can vary the power of the technique, as nuking the room/building/city would be inadvisable when the cult making up his power base is in said room/building/city.


* ContinuitySnarl: In the ''Arrow'' episode "[[Recap/ArrowS4E12Unchained Unchained]]", Malcolm explained that Sara no longer has blood lust because John Constantine fully restored her. In this episode, Sara still suffers from her resurrection. That being said, Sara's case doesn't seem to be nearly as bad as Thea's, and Malcolm has lied before.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoAboveItAll: Jax really tries to stop Snart and Mick from stealing the jump ship, until Snart points out how really cool it would be to fly it.

Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Savage gave Rip the monicker "Garib", which means strange, outlandish, or foreign, when the latter {{Time Travel}}ed to AncientEgypt. Thing is, "Garib" is an ''Arabic'' word, and Savage was ''not yet'' immortal at that time to be WalkingTheEarth and learning different cultures (unless he's already an {{Omniglot}}).


Added DiffLines:

* BelatedBackstory: This episode technically serves as one to Lewis Snart, who [[AssholeVictim was killed]] by his own son on an early episode of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' Season 2.
* BigDamnHeroes: Snart, Mick and Jax save Rip and Sara as well as Carter's corpse from Savage and his {{Cult}} during the climatic scene.


Added DiffLines:

* FakeShemp: It's obvious that Carter's corpse is not played by Creator/FalkHentschel.


Added DiffLines:

* OminousLatinChanting: Savage's {{Cult}} do it literally.


* GoodIsDumb: Rip prioritized reclaiming Carter's body rather than also bringing Savage's corpse to the Waverider so Kendra can kill him permanently once he resurrects.
