Ever since the season two finale of The Flash ended, many fans were left wondering where specifically the show would be headed. Barry made the decision to go back in time and stop Eobard Thawne from killing his mother. Doing this would pretty much wipe the slate clean. With his mother alive, his father would never end up going to jail, he would never be adopted by the West family and probably never fall in love with Iris. Was the CW going to do some version of the famous comic storyline: The FlashPoint Paradox? In the famous story, Barry went back in time and saved his mother, pretty much creating an alternate reality where not only did Barry not have his powers, but things were drastically different. Looks like we have a definitive answer for where season three of The Flash is heading.
The Flash himself, Grant Gustin posted on twitter today the title of the first episode of Season Three (with producer Greg Berlanti’s permission of course).
FLASHPOINT. This is not drill. https://t.co/nzq2NJh9pl

Looks like we will actually be getting the FlashPoint paradox storyline on the small screen. Of course, there will be some differences since characters like Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg are not a part of the “Arrowverse.” However with Supergirl joining this small screen universe, and the recent casting of Superman on Supergirl, we might be able to see Clark Kent as a part of this storyline. There have even been reports of Jeffrey Dean Morgan wanting to reprise his role from Batman v Superman so that he could be Thomas Wayne as Batman. Either way, next season of The Flash looks like it’s off to a great start.
