The Flash Mob: Season 3 Premiere, “Flashpoint”

More Flashes, more (timeline) problems.

The CW’s superhero shows are picking back up with the return of The Flash last night, and Barry Allen’s actions have brought on some pretty big—if seemingly temporary—changes. (Spoilers below, of course!)

Meddling with the past never goes well, and by the end of the episode, Barry had to come to terms with asking Reverse-Flash to kill his mother and set the timeline straight again, but the effects of Barry’s actions may not be completely forgotten. What did you think of the third season opener? How do you feel about the way the time-travel implications were handled? Discuss in the comments below!
