Barry Allen really messed up this time.
During Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, the deeper repercussions of Flashpoint came to light as Barry (Grant Gustin) realized not everything had reverted the way it should have. Here are some of the most shocking changes in the new timeline:
Faced with these overwhelming differences, Barry decided to run back in time and try to fix everything, but Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) pulled him out to explain that every time Barry goes back in time, it breaks the timeline, and he’ll never fix it entirely. Now he needs to decide what kind of hero he’ll be: Take a do-over every time he makes a mistake? Or live with the consequences of his actions?
Barry’s going for the latter, which means we’re stuck in the darkest timeline for at least a while longer. At least Iris gets everyone to put their differences aside, especially when Barry needs help saving from the Rival and Doctor Alchemy, who reveals he’s preparing this world by helping people achieve their true potential — essentially giving everyone from Flashpoint their powers back. In fact, it’s Cisco, who has control of his powers here, who helps Barry defeat The Rival. Maybe the darkest timeline isn’t so bad after all! Well, that all depends on what Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) plans to do with her newly discovered, and so far hidden, Killer Frost powers. Twist!
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
