"King Shark versus Gorilla Grodd, are you kidding me?!" exclaims Iris West-Allen as she receives an update on her phone about the fight.

The fight was teased earlier this season with Barry and Iris' daughter from the future, Nora, briefly mentioning a battle between the two longtime Flash villains would take place. Showrunner Todd Helbing had previously admitted the series had attempted to pit the two against each other before Season 5 only to postpone the battle due to budget concerns.
