I’m not sure why The Flash was the only CW superhero show that had footage assembled for its next season, but I’m not complaining: I was dying to know what happened after Barry selfishly saved his mom’s live in the past and rewrote the timeline for everyone he ever loved. In a word, “Flashpoint.”

That’s the name the now-living Reverse-Flash dubs the new reality, mocking Barry for creating it—and rightfully so, since apparently Barry is having nightmarish visions and everyone who used to be his friend now either doesn’t not him or outright dislikes him. Well done, Barry! But hey, at least we get a glimpse of Kid Flash.


Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.
