Now, The Flash may already have pretty solidly embraced the whole idea of time-travel - so far, the first season has included more than a solid dash of the stuff - but from the sounds of it, we've got a whole lot more coming our way in the near future.
As the show's titular star Grant Gustin revealed recently to THR:
"We are diving deep into the time-travel element and it is going to be wild."
Which is all well and good and all, but just what can we actually expect to see? Well, Tom Cavanagh - Dr. Wells himself - has provided us with a pretty awesome hint:
"It's ultimately why I signed on to this job. Not to play a scientist, but to play a time-traveling bandit. In comic books, when you start talking about time travel — if anybody has followed The Flash, then they know Reverse-Flash and The Flash are not just doing this right now in the present day. They have a long history and there's nothing that we're not going to pursue when we try to tell the story. We're trying to tell all of it."
Now, just to clarify - yes, he did indeed just say 'time-traveling bandit', and yes, that is definitely the coolest idea for a superhero show's villain since...well, possibly ever.
The big question now? How much are we going to see that time-traveling action directly effect the show in the near-future?
Well, if Gustin gets his way - it might just be one hell of a lot - the actor recently admitting that:
"I think it would be fun if it totally changed the show for season two."
Epic, era-spanning time-travel sub-plot, anyone?
What do you guys reckon, though? Just where could that time-travel be set to take us? How much will it alter the next season of The Flash - and this one, for that matter? And just what is the deal with Dr. Wells?
