Did You Know?


On Earth Nineteen, Alfred Hitchcock made a film entitled "Murder on the Titanic". In 1939, Hitchcock gave an interview to a British film journal in which he said that he hoped to make a film about the sinking of the RMS Titanic as his first Hollywood production. However, the film was never made and Rebecca (1940) became Hitchcock's first Hollywood film. See more »


When H.R. (Wells) gives Wally his latte, he tells him it has three shots of "expresso." The word is "espresso" not "expresso".

However this may not be a goof at all. H.R. Wells comes from Earth-19, a world with different terms than our own, so on Earth-19, "expresso" may in fact be the correct term. H.R. has specifically mentioned that "humans" are called "hominids" on Earth-19, and people commonly say "Until next communion" in place of "See you later". See more »


The Flash: All right, I'm here. It's a bad scene, man.
Cisco Ramon: You should be right on top of it, Barry. What is it?
The Flash: It's a... monster? Guys, did you hear me? There is a monster in Central City.
Cisco Ramon: What are we talking? Yao Ming size or Andre the Giant?
The Flash: No, it's, like, an actual monster.

User Reviews

This series is better than most of the summer blockbuster movies
7 August 2017 | by asb_deutschSee all my reviews

It lives up to the hype and is much better than recently watched Dunkirk in IMAX.

This episode makes you care about all the characters, even H.R Wells.

I must add, there was one line that Barry Allen said in this episode "Its a scary world. Change is a good thing" I am very sentimental that Caitlin Snow is now going to become Killer Frost and how will Barry Allen will face it.

The Monster trick wasn't that bad. 7.6/10
