Everyone had their own theories for what the title of this season would be. Good news! It’s Flashpoint! The comic fans will know what this means. Flashpoint was the name of the crossover mini-series that happened when Barry went back in time to save his mother. It went so far that it had an impact on events like Superman’s landing on earth and the murder of Martha and Thomas Wayne (they lived but saw their son die).
It won’t be going that far for the Flash, but will be more local. You can read the Flashpoint Synopsis below:
WHAT WOULD YOU SACRIFICE TO HAVE EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER WANTED? — Barry (Grant Gustin) is living his dream life – his parents are alive, he’s asked Iris West (Candice Patton) on a date and he can finally be a normal guy as Central City has another speedster, Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), running around saving the city. When Barry starts forgetting parts of his old life, the Reverse Flash (guest star Matt Letscher) taunts his nemesis and tells him that there will be serious repercussions for Barry and the ones he loves if he continues to live in this alternate universe. In addition to losing his memories, his powers will also start to fade. When disaster strikes, Barry must decide if he wants to continue to live in this world as Barry Allen or return to his universe as The Flash.
The Flash will come back with a third season on October 4 on The CW.
