The CW might never have managed to get Amazon, its planned Wonder Woman prequel series, off the ground -- but that doesn't mean they won't imply the Amazing Amazon exists in the shared DC Universe of The Flash, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. In fact, the first Wonder Woman Easter egg just appeared on The Flash, just in time for the forthcoming Wonder Woman movie next month.
While walking past a number of cells Barry identifies as members of the Suicide Squad, he sees the names Cupid, Grodd, and Cheetah.
Cupid, of course, has appeared on a number of episodes of Arrow, and has indeed served on a Suicide Squad-style team on The Flash. Grodd, meanwhile, has been a major opponent for at least one episode in each season of The Flash. Cheetah, though? She's never been seen in the Arrowverse before.
Who is she? Well, she's one of Wonder Woman's most notorious foes.
Per the DC Wiki, "The Cheetah is a super-villain legacy of characters with feline characteristics who usually fight Wonder Woman. There have been several different people to use this alias. Some simply wear a cheetah costume, while others are mutated. Priscilla Rich was the original during the Golden Age, and Deborah Domaine was the Silver Age version. Barbara Ann Minerva is the current contemporary version, although there has also been a male Cheetah named Sebastian Ballesteros. The character has been involved with Villainy, Inc., the Injustice League and the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Cheetah was created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, first appearing in Wonder Woman #6."

With only 24 hours left until Savitar murders Iris (Candice Patton), Barry (Grant Gustin) struggles to save the woman he loves and makes the choice to use any means necessary to do so. Realizing he has one option left to save her, The Flash turns to Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) for help.
Michael Allowitz directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree.
