In addition to the "Garrick Ave." reference mentioned in another item, episodes have referenced "The Hotel Infantino" (a nod to Silver Age Flash co-creator Carmine Infantino), "police captain Julius Schwartz" (a nod to Silver Age Flash co-creator Julius Schwartz), "the intersection of Gardner and Fox" (a nod to Golden Age Flash creator Gardner Fox), "Professor Zoom" (a recurring villain in the Silver Age Flash stories) and "Gorilla Grodd" (another recurring Silver Age Flash villain).

    Goof (factual errors): The building used in the prison scene is one that is wholly inadequate for its purpose. Chief Cooper refers to the inmates as "...serial killers, hit men and the worst scum on earth...", yet there are corridors with large windows with unreinforced glass; interior scenes show as many as six occupants per cell and mixed male and female populations in the same cell block. Furthermore, Pike is able to shoot out the lock on an access tunnel with one shot. None of these conditions would be considered adequate for a prison holding the kinds of criminals the chief described.
