With the return of season 3 tomorrow, we thought you might need a little catching up…
Season 3 opens up with Barry living in new timeline he created when he saved his monther. This new timeline is named “Flashpoint” by Thawn. Wally West is now The Flash and there is a new villain by the name of The Rival. Barry seems uninterested in returning to his old life until the death of Wally West. Barry soon realizes he has made a mistake and tries to correct the timeline. However, dispute his best effect the timeline isn’t the same and there fractures which result in changes. Some of these changes are Cisco’s brother dying in a car crash, Barry now has a reluctant partner, Julian Dorn and Catlin Snow being on the verge of transforming into Killer Frost.
Those are the least of Barry’s problems. Somehow all the villains Barry came across in “Flashpoint” seem to be returning. We learn that this is at the hand of Doctor Alchemy. Alchemy is a new villain for Barry. Alchemy ends up being Dorn, who in return is being controlled by this season true villain, Savitar.
Barry soon learns that Savitar is the god of speed and the first ever speedster. Barry is able to trap Savitar into the speed force with the help of Jay Garrick and Team Flash. However, we last see Barry in the future seeing Iris West being killed by Savitar. Desperate and confused, Barry will do whatever it takes to stop this future from happing.
