After speeding to 2031 (when he allegedly induced Armageddon), Barry was stared at by Iris, Chester, and different Team Flash members and associates — all as a result of, he later discovered, Eobard Thawne had traveled again in time to, amongst different issues, kill younger Barry Allen and create a “Reverse-Flashpoint”. As such, Thawne emerged as The Flash, ended Iris courting/made her his “lightning rod”, forming a staff that additionally included Chester, Frost, Cecile, and Ryan Choi, aka The Atom. (Allegra, we had been instructed, made tracks for London a while in the past, after she and Chester each mishandled their first date.)
Other enjoyable information from this modified timeline: batwomanRyan Wilder in 2031 contemplates having a child with spouse Sophie Moore (and Iris was the bridesmaid at Ryan’s personal marriage ceremony); supergirlAlex remains to be with Kelly; and Frost and Chillblaine have shaped a little bit of a dynamic duo.

To rectify this extraordinarily improper actuality, Barry tried to assist Reverse-Flash’s ally Damien Darhk, however quickly confessed that he’s a great man caught in an altered timeline.

In the tip, it got here all the way down to a standoff between Barry and Eobard, with Iris — sensing repeatedly that she and “Allen” share a previous/connection — as an alternative utilizing an immobilizing ray gun on her fiancé. Barry then went all over the world to succeed in Mach 20 and open a time portal/Undo Reverse-Flashpoint, though this may danger actually breaking the world (ergo, Armageddon).

Tom will be wearing the Flash suit, so what’s an appropriate name for this event?

(*4*) Cavanagh defined. “L [as Eobard] like to pace myself, let me put it this way. Read in it what you want.”
That signifies that no matter Thawne does subsequent in revenge, ‘I don’t need it to develop into an on the spot, all-consuming darkness. I wish to play issues off a bit and provides myself a spot to go,” Cavanagh added. “How are you?” Which for generalities!”
