- The first important Myth Arc revolves around Oliver utterly ruining everything Malcolm worked for, right? When you look at it, it's very much a Shout-Out to the Arthurian mythos. Remember who was responsible for destroying King Arthur's kingdom? Yeah, it was his bastard son, Mordred, who basically became the perfect antithesis to dear ol'dad — just like Oliver, here the adulterous offspring to Malcolm whose original name was Arthur King. And cherry on the top, some retellings of the mythos have Arthur trying to kill a young Mordred by putting him on a ship rigged to sink.
- Barry being a Knife Nut makes a lot of sense: Unlike, say, a sword or spear, knives don't have much kinetic power behind them, can be thrown or handled, and are fast and agile weapons. Perfect for a speedster.
- Fridge Horror: Barry's already picked up a few of Savitar's attributes, such as his use of bladed weapons and trollish behavior.
