The Earth-2 doppelganger of Cisco's brother Dante, Rupture has a scythe and knows how to use it. Here are some of the #DCTV Secrets from the episode:

He Ain't Nothing But a Hound... You Know the Rest
Earth-2 doppelgangers continue to be nothing but trouble. This time around the team encounters an alternate version of Dante Ramon named Rupture. Rupture was the brother of Reverb on the other earth, and he's looking for sweet, sweet revenge.
In the comics, Rupture was named Armando Ramon. Armando made his debut in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #233. Also known as the Hound of Mordeth, the villainous character was responsible for thousands of deaths. He wielded powers similar to Vibe's.
Who Are You Rooting For?
Dante asks the bartender to turn on the Diamonds game. He's referencing the Central City Diamonds, a baseball team from the comics. The sports team has come up once before in the first season, but it was neat to get another mention.
The Pop Culture King
Cisco's pop culture knowledge has no limits. When he flexed the powers of his Flash projection technology, he yelled the name "Leeroy!" If that has you scratching your head, it’s actuually a reference to a popular meme. Leeroy Jenkins was a World of Warcraft player who, in a much-seen video from 2005, shouted his name and charged into battle without paying attention and wound up killing himself and everyone in his raiding party as a result. Oops. Thankfully Cisco had better luck.
Come back next week—don't pull a Barry!
