Analysis

This episode’s overlying theme is love. Kara and her love issues are apparent. Alex and Sara have a one night stand. Oliver wants to marry Felicity but she rejects. Iris and Barry are having their wedding. It is not a very eventful episode, it is more of an intro as to what to expect. Things get really juicy in the next episode.

Easter Eggs

  • Caitlin and Stein talk about the last wedding they were at, her wedding with Ronnie and we even get a callback to Ronnie’s theme.
  • They NAME DROPPED Spider-Man, the cure that Stein makes for Jax will make him like Spider-Man, they even reference spidey sense, sticking to walls and more of his powers.
  • At the wedding Mick sits next to the CCPD captain. They’ve known each other.
  • Kara sings “Running Home to You” from last season’s musical crossover at the wedding.
  • Kara and Oliver join Mick in saying “I hate Nazis.”
  • Cisco calls Wells “Squidward” in front of Stein and Jax, which is a perfect description of Harry.
