...because you had the focus on the background and probably spot metering combined with very small focus area. The background is too far for the flash and the flash was discharged with full power.

Yes, except the shots were taken with Matrix Metering I'd suspect that the first shot would be more exposed with or without the flash, as the camera metered for the background. And like you said, the first shot highlights are blown as the flash tried to compensate for the dark background.
