The second series of The Flash ended with many fans yelling at their screens. Just as you thought Barry Allen had finally learned his lesson about not messing with the timeline… he goes back and stops his mother’s murder. Oops?
Comic fans knew this meant the ‘Flashpoint’ storyline was likely upon them, and were left wondering what that meant for the television DC universe (affectionately referred to as the “Arrowverse”, because of its origin in the Arrow series) when big players like Batman, and Wonder Woman were likely off table? What does that mean for Barry’s relationship with Joe West, the man who took him in when his mother died and his father was convicted of her murder? The WestAllen shippers wondered what this meant for Barry and Iris West’s budding love, which had just had another kiss that was then erased by time (the writers like to tease WestAllen and then take it away again, don’t they)? What did it mean for Barry’s powers? And his friendships with Cisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow, and Harrison Wells?
We had a chance to chat with The Flash stars Grant Gustin (Barry Allen), Tom Cavenagh (Harrison Wells), Candice Patton (Iris West), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West), newcomer Tom Felton, and Executive Producers Todd and Aaron Helbing at San Diego Comic Con to get a hint at what fans can expect in Series 3.
