The Flash Secrets: “Fast Lane”

Coast City Pizza The Flash

Coast City Pizza

The West family went to dinner at Coast City Pizza. We’ve seen this restaurant chain before, in “Who Is Harrison Wells?,” and it’s likely inspired by the real-life California Pizza Kitchen. Of course Coast City is where Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern, calls home in the comics. Arrow and The Flash have mentioned and spent time in Coast City.

Tarpit The Flash

Tar Pit

Tonight’s villain was Tar Pit, created by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins and introduced in 2001. He was a small-time drug trafficker who learned he could astral project himself out into the world while still behind bars. At one point, his spirit became trapped in a vat of tar, leaving Tar Pit to walk the earth with a body made of molten asphalt. His physical form remained in a coma at Iron Heights Prison.

Oliver Queen for Mayor

If you listened closely to the newscast on TV, you could hear someone mention Oliver Queen’s mayoral campaign. Ollie’s campaign returned in this week’s Arrow.

Diamond Comics

Diamond Detailing

The Diamond Detailing sign has a logo that looks similar to Diamond Comics Distributors. It could be a coincidence but perhaps it’s not.
