Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: The episode has Creator/TomFelton going up against [[Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes sentient apes]]. The episode even has Julian {{Squee}}ing over ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes''.


* UngratefulBastard: Grodd. His second appearance had him trying to create more apes like him. so Team Flash sent him to Gorilla City so he could be with others like him. Grodd doesn't see it that way. He sees it has his home being taken from him even though he was forced to skulk in sewers and empty skyscrapers on Earth-1.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Traditionally Grodd is the TokenEvilTeammate amongst the Gorillas who want to subjugate humanity and Solovar is usually an ally to the heroes trying to stop him. Here the roles are reversed. Subverted when it turns out that it was all a ruse by Grodd [[TheStarscream to stage a coup]] so he could conquer Earth-1. Nonetheless, Solovar is still not the most pleasant of individuals.

* YouCantFightFate: Grodd is still invading Central City, thus Barry's efforts to stop another incidence connected to Iris' death failed.

* SpoilerOpening: Oddly enough, the recap clip after the OpeningNarration does not feature the episodes with Grodd. What ''does'' get through is that one of the clips are from Gypsy's episode, foreshadowing her return.

Added DiffLines:

** Upon arriving in Eart-2, Cisco says "[[Music/GunsNRoses Welcome to the Jungle, Baby]]."

Added DiffLines:

** Cisco mentions that they sent Grodd to Gorilla City "[[Film/KingKong1933 when he went after Fay Wray here]]."

Added DiffLines:

* ObscuredSpecialEffects: Grodd mostly speaks through Harry and Cisco while he himself remains offscreen. It's pretty obvious that this done to reduce the amount of shots featuring Grodd, thus saving the money required to animate a fully computer-generated gorilla for those shots.


* IdiotBall: Grodd is fooled when Barry pretends to be dead, so he takes his "lifeless" body outside of the cell and just puts it there, and leaves. It's true that [[DidntSeeThatComing he couldn't have known about Caitlin's powers being used to complete the deception]], but on the other hand he ''does'' have telepathic powers, so it wouldn't be too difficult for him to check whether Barry's brains are still working.

* IdiotBall: Grodd is fooled when Barry pretends to be dead, so he takes his "lifeless" body outside of the cell and just puts it there, and leaves. However, in fairness, [[DidntSeeThatComing there's no way he could have known about Caitlin's powers being used to complete the deception]].

Added DiffLines:

* EurekaMoment:
** During the arena battle when Julian mentions reversal Cisco realizes that Flash needs to "[[VibroWeapon pull a Reverse-Flash]]" to defeat Solovar.
** Barry taking Cisco's idea of someone among them dying so the rest can escape, just not the same way Cisco thought.

Added DiffLines:
