The Flash Season 2 and Arrow Season 4 came to end. In the Arrow Season finale, Damien Darhk was defeated and killed forever, but in the Flash Season finale the main villain Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) was defeated ‘temporally”, he was not killed he was just taken by the enforcers of the speed force the “time wraiths” in a portal possibly the speed force itself. Many fans are suggesting that he can be the Black Flash from the comics, which is the possible reason he had a black suit in the 2nd season. In the comics Black Flash fulfills the role of Death for those who possess super-speed, returning them to the source of their powers the speed force. If The Flash gets renewed for season 4 he might show up in the last episodes of season 3 to make some suspense.
But defeating Zoom wasn’t enough for Barry to be the hero of the day he traveled back into time to 18th March 2000 to save his mother from getting killed by Reverse Flash and kicked his ass. Now the introduction line of 3rd season could be “My name is Barry Allen and I was the fastest man alive. To the outside world, I’m an ordinary forensic scientist. I traveled back into that time to once again try to save my mother and I did it. But in doing so I opened up our world to new threats. I am the only person who remembers this. I was Flash.”
But after saving his mother, Barry from Season 1 disappeared. This could be because Thawne was never stuck in the past he went back into his time, he never created the Flash ,he never asked him to open a stable wormhole through which he could return home, so Barry from season 1 never time traveled. That’s where the Flashpoint paradox starts.
First of all the questions arises that, What is the Paradox? A paradox is a statement that contradicts itself and yet might be true (or wrong at the same time).In Flashpoint paradox Barry traveled into the past to try and prevent his mother’s murder at the hands of the Reverse-Flash. And Barry did it. He saved her. But after all that Flashpoint was created which resulted in a complete rewriting of reality. In that new reality, Dr. Thomas Wayne became Batman after watching his son, Bruce get gunned down. Together, Barry and Dr. Wayne saved the universe and Barry stopped himself from changing the past.
The Reverse-Flash reveals that Flash himself created the Flashpoint timeline by traveling back in time to stop Reverse-Flash from killing Barry's mother. Barry pulled the entire Speed Force into himself to stop Thawne, transforming the timeline by shattering the history of his allies. Thawne resets Barry's internal vibrations, enabling him to remember this. According to Thawne, these actions transformed him into a living paradox, no longer requiring Barry to exist and allowing him to kill the Flash without erasing his own existence. Thawne also told that when a speedster breaks sound barrier he create a sonic boom and when a speedster breaks time barrier he creates a time boom ,which could alter the timeline including the past events also.
In Arrowverse they don’t have the proper television rights to all the superheroes and characters. They haven’t introduced characters like Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Cyborg, etc but they keep giving up references. Even though they did a crossover event on Supergirl where Flash came to Earth-S. They also introduced Robert Queen as Arrow instead of Oliver Queen on Earth-2 whereas Robert Queen was deceased on Earth-1 which reassembles of Dr. Thomas Wayne being the Batman in the altered timeline. They could show Robert Queen helping our scarlet speedster as Arrow, Ray Palmer with a different AKA A.T.O.M. Exosuit (Advance Technology Operating Mechanism) like Cyborg, Leonard Snart can be a full time hero from starting.
Back in the year 2000 there were 4 Barry’s at the time of murder of his mother. First one from that timeline aged 11, Second that was actually fighting Reverse Flash which possibly time traveled from year 2024, Third and Fourth from the First and Second season finale.
Zoom (∞-1 = ∞)
As Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) said “I’ve always used to measure my victory by counting the number of victims I’ve had, but now I’m thinking to count the numbers of earths he conquer instead. “ He is obsessed with speed and he wants to be best speedster in the multiverse .So he came up with a plan to destroy all the planets in the multiverse (which are infinite) to be the best… So if he would be successful in his demonic plan there would be only one Earth left the multiverse which is Earth-1. He couldn’t actually count his victory in a mathematical manner because if he destroy infinite earths except Earth-1 it would be (∞-1 = ∞). And what if Damien Darhk joins the party and successful with his plan he would able burn the world. Destroying the only earth left, then zoom’s account would be a proper ∞. But the only problem in that is where will Zoom hang his cowl? Pun intended.
Tom Cavanagh was confirmed to Be Returning as Series Regular for The Flash Season 3.In the 1st season he played Harrison Wells from Earth-1 whose body was taken by Eobard Thawne and in the 2nd season Harrison Wells from Earth-2. Now the only most logical and eligible character to play for Tom Cavanagh is the real Harrison Wells from earth 1 who was never killed by Eobard Thawne in The Flash's third season. Because Thawne never killed Nora Allen and went back to his time. Now Barry could easily trust Harrison Wells, as in the new reality Barry would be powerless, so to tap again in the Speed Force he might ask Harrison Wells to help him and make the Particle Accelerator explode again which could not be contained .This could result in more and new meta human hanging around in season 3 and heroes could become villain like Earth-1 Killer Frost, Reverb, Deathstrom, Dr. Light, Black Siren, etc
Harrison Wells could also found S.T.A.R. Labs (Scientific and Technological Advanced Research Labs) in 1991 like the Wells from Earth-2 because of the time boom. Since Tess Morgan could be alive they could have Jessie Quick as their child born in 1990s.
In the comics also Iris West was originally married to Barry but in the new timeline she was married to someone else. As his mother was never killed and his father never went to prison, he never came to Iris house to live up with Joe as his foster son, Wally and Francine West may never left for Keystone City staying originally with her husband and daughter. Iris could marry Eddie Thawne.
Last but not the least they finally revealed “The Man In The Iron Mask” after so much suspense. He was the real Jay Garrick (the first Flash ever) from Earth-3 and Henry’s doppelganger which is very lame. His costume which was shown at very last was like that someone made it for the next Comic Con. “My name is Jay Garrick. I am the fastest man alive on Earth-3.I am the first Flash ever. I had my own Flash TV series in 1990s in which I was named as Barry Allen. But suddenly the sky split open and a villain Named Zoom from Earth-2 came and captured me. After he captured me, he stole my name and my suit color scheme too. Now the only person who can save me from Zoom’s prison is Barry Allen the flash From Earth-1.” In my point of view they could done this in a better way by doing something logical. Most probably Flash season 3 could air on 4th or 11th October 2016.
