The latest promo of the episode shows Barry stuck in a weird timeline, where his mother, Nora Allen is alive. Barry is seen walking down a cemetery with Iris West, and they are holding hands, which is a good news for West-Allen fans.

Meanwhile, back in Central City, Harrison Wells will use Cisco Ramon as an anchor to "pinpoint whatever corner in the universe Barry is struck [in]". While the Speedster will try to figure out a way out of the weird universe, Iris and Cisco will be left to fend off a returning meta-human Girder.

Kevin Smith who is also a big fan of the show, spoke to IGN about directing The Runaway Dinosaur episode. The director shared, "I love the show so much that I was like 'Heavens, I bet I could learn something! Show me how you do this every week. And so oddly enough, after eight days of directing The Flash, I became a far better filmmaker than when I started."

Further, Grant Gustin who plays Barry in the show, praised Kevin Smith and said that fans will really enjoy the special episode. The actor wrote on Instagram, "I can't wait to see next week's episode. Barry's journey at the end of this season was a torture and a joy to go on. But this episode in particular was in the best hands possible with @thatkevinsmith. He came in with such exuberance about the project that the entire crew and cast was uplifted."

He explained, "We were near the end of a 23 episode season and run down but Kevin reinvigorated us and I think together we all made a very special episode that tv, comic book, and Flash fans will really enjoy."
