- Author's Saving Throw: Given the controversial decision Barry and Iris have on keeping Joe Locked Out of the Loop on the Bad Future, Iris finally lets Joe in, and while he's unpleased he's also more cooperative with the plan to change the future. They also promise to never keep this kind of secret from each other ever again, though we'll see how long that lasts.
- Squick: The decomposing corpses left by the meta is rather shocking for a series that isn't well known for carnage.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Julio Mendez, Da Chief of CCPD in the Flashpoint timeline and a main character on the previous Flash series, was reduced to a Victim of the Week. Many think, especially those who are also fans of the previous Flash series, that he'd make a nice Recurring Character here in the same veins as 90s Flash veterans Tina McGee, Mayor Bellows, and The Trickster.
