The third season of “The Flash” is starting out with probably the most ambitious premise known to mankind: A completely different timeline. Flashpoint creates different variables, new relationships, and game-changing dynamics that will probably alter the show long after the storyline ends.
Of course, one of the main questions that goes along with it surfacing is if there is a way for Barry to eventually learn that he is living a lie. We’ve already heard from Matt Letscher that the Reverse-Flash could eventually play a role, and speaking per Entertainment Weekly, star Grant Gustin also suggested recently that Barry’s own memories of the past could start to play a few games with him, and help him realize that all of his memories may be genuine ones:
“He’s starting to have new memories of graduating high school and college, memories he never had with his parents, but those memories are replacing other things from the other timeline.”
We certainly are hoping that this is more of a slow process in adapting back to the real world than something that is resolved immediately. So much thought clearly went into backing Flashpoint happen that it’d be a shame if we did not get at least two or three episodes there. We understand not wanting to do a whole lot more than that since messing with the rest of the DC canon is tricky, so we’ll just have to see how all of this pans out.
