I Bet You Missed These 17 Easter Eggs In 'The Flash' Premier
1 of 17 The Way To Start
Most of DC’s heroes welcome readers into each issue’s plot with a bit of backstory, but where other heroes keep the narration to the case at hand, Barry Allen usually takes every opportunity to begin an adventure by formally introducing himself: “My name is Barry Allen. I’m the Fastest Man Alive.” TV audiences have been brought into the loop, with Grant Gustin’s Barry using the exact same wording for the episode’s opening voice over.
2 Of 17 Reporter At The Scene
When Barry returns to his lab to look more into his mother’s murder, a TV news report reveals that there has been a catastrophic failure during the initial run of S.T.A.R. Labs’ accelerator. That story is brought to viewers by Linda Park, reporting for KSFZ. Many fans know this woman as the wife of future Flash Wally West.
3 Of 17 Newspaper Clipping
Barry's has a few newspaper clippings and scraps on his mother’s murder, which his father was falsely convicted. Among the clippings there is a newspaper story showing Henry being arrested, and the story is credited to ‘Evan Gibson,’ who is actually a Star City TV reporter introduced in the New 52 reboot of “Green Arrow.” With the fictional city re-imagined as Starling for The CW’s Arrow, we can only assume Gibson will head there sooner or later.
