The CW’s and DC’s fastest man alive is about to return for its third season and its about to break wide open. The end of Season 2 earlier this year left viewers and fans speechless with the twists and surprises, many of which contributed to the Flashpoint story arc. Barry’s selfish move at the end of the finale to go back and save his mother from certain death created an alternate universe that left Barry smack in the middle of a completely different reality where he is a stranger among familiar faces and people he considers family.
With the Flashpoint story front and center and how things left off in last season’s finale several questions come to mind. Toward the end of Season 2 Zoom’s (Teddy Sears) intentions became clear – travel the universe throughout multiple timelines and continue to grow his powers by killing off every version of the Flash. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who you were rooting for, these actions came with consequences and the Time Wraiths took notice – transforming Zoom into what appeared like the Black Flash. Black Flash is an actual character from DC Comics who is considered as the Dark Aspect of the Speed Force. The Black Flash fullfils the role of death to speedsters within the DC Universe. Although the transformation was not stated or clear but it can be implied at this juncture.
