Is The Flash doing Flashpoint in season 3?

Is The Flash doing Flashpoint in season 3?

The mega superhero crossover will probably be on a smaller scale than the comics - Superman is out of the picture already, and we've only got hints that Batman exists. Because you know the Speed Force and their police squad of dementors are going to be pretty pissed about this one. Barry agrees to the race. That version slowly vanishes as the timeline changes. "This just goes to show you never say never, you know?"

Team Flash thinks quickly and locks up Barry to stop this race. We all need friends and family, some sort of support system to give us guidance, love, and courage. It might be the dumbest thing Barry Allen has ever done.

For now though, The CW series has left us with a very bad lot to think about over the next few months, and we can't wait to see how things unfold for the show from here. Zoom started the episode by proclaiming that family is a weakness, but Barry points out that his family, none of which are related to him by blood, are the reason he runs - "why I'm gonna beat you", he tells his nemesis.

Earlier this season The Flash revealed that Robert Queen was The Arrow on Earth-Two, instead of his son Oliver Queen. However, The Flash toys with that as Barry undoes his whole history, going back to the night his mother was killed by the Reverse-Flash. Nevertheless, this isn't just another Earth's version of Henry Allen. Still searching for a way to become stronger, he locked Jay up as a trophy and went after Barry on Earth-1.

Needless to say, it did not go over well with many, and especially not Reverse-Flash/Harrison Wells actor Tom Cavanagh. Crafting a Season 2 finale that met that high standard was always going to be a very tall order to fill, and it's not terribly surprising that "The Race of His Life" didn't quite measure up. The second twist is much less expected and much more ill-advised: Barry time-travels back to the moment of his mother's murder again, but this time he saves her. The previous Barry watches this happen and vanishes from existence. It is now entirely possible that they could return in season 3. In the upcoming season finale, Barry will face the reigning big villain Zoom (Teddy Sears) once and for all to bring justice to the latter's victims.

If Barry alters the timeline on Earth One, does that mean Earth 2 gets a do-over? He, too, was shaped by the presumably now defunct timeline.

"We won't lose it, though, I will be adamant!"

When Shipp first began to process the big Jay Garrick revelation, he wasn't sure how he felt about it. The mystery of the man in the iron mask is one that had fans wondering and theorizing for months, and the show certainly didnt downplay the intrigue.

How will Wally and Jesse flirt if they're on different Earths? Cisco vibes Barry to meet with Zoom. Barry hoped to not only got revenge for Zoom killing his father, he also wanted to keep Zoom from destroying the universe. Also, we know that in the comics, Jay Garrick is a founding member. It seems easy for Cisco to pop back and forth and, with Zoom gone, the dangers of keeping breaches don't seem almost as high.

It will be interesting to see what happens as a result of his decision on the other CW shows.

How angry are the time wraiths going to be?
