The wait is finally over as the scarlet speedster is back to flash on our screens once again. Season 2 ended on a high note with Barry going back in time to save his mother the night Reverse-Flash killed her. Thus, the story will pick up from when Nora and Henry Allen would be well and alive, giving Barry a chance to live the kind of life that he always dreamt of. But, the question is whether he would risk everything, including his powers to have his parents alive. Well, this and more will be part of the Season 3 which will premiere on 4th October, 2016.
So, fasten your seatbelts because The Flash is going to take you on a ride to explore the Flashpoint Paradox!
For those of you who don’t know about Flashpoint, well, it’s a comic by Geoff Johns, Andy Kubert, and Sandra Hope in which Barry wakes up, powerless, in a world where his mother never died at the hands of the Reverse-Flash. To really get a hold of this, I will recommend you to watch Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox. Till now, we know that that the first episode is called ‘Flashpoint’ and second, ‘Paradox’. So, we can take a sigh of relief knowing that the whole Season 3 will not delve deep into this whole phenomenon.
Though interestingly, after watching the trailer, we know that there will be a new Flash in the town fighting crime – or better, a Kid-Flash. Wally West, played by Keiynan Lonsdale, will be the Kid-Flash. And yeah, once Barry starts forgetting parts of his old life, the Reverse Flash (guest star Matt Letscher) taunts his nemesis and tells him that there will be serious repercussions for Barry and the ones he loves if he continues to live in this alternate universe. When the time comes, will Barry make the choice of his life, remain as it is or go back and be The Flash of his universe? Also, we’ll see Cisco as a badass billionaire and Caitlin as a scientist in the tampered timeline.
Zooming in – the new and old characters!
Due to the multiple timelines and dimension in the storyline, most of the characters can return because of indefinite scenarios and new characters can always be incorporated. For season 3, unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that Draco Malfoy a.k.a Tom Felton has been signed as a series regular. He will be sharing Barry’s Lab and play Julian Dorn, a new CSI of Central City Police Department. His apparent disdain and distrust for Barry Allen’s good boy image and his own secrets will weave an interesting story.
Season 3 has a great line-up of villains with The Top, Mirror Master, speedster The Rival, the metahuman Magenta. Though, it’s the supervillians which will blow you off, Helbing, executive producer of The Flash teased:
“Savitar is more of a psychological villain in a weird way. I think the Hindu word for Savitar means God of Speed; he’s all about speed. Everything about this guy is different. I can’t go into super detail, but he’s not like Zoom or Reverse Flash.”
With the Cult of Savitar, we’ll have Dr. Alchemy paying Flash a visit this season. It’ll be fun to watch Barry fight a non-speeding villain – Dr. Alchemy and, a speedster – Savitar team up together.
We all love crossovers and with the newest addition of Supergirl in the CW’s fight club, we’ll have a blast. Supergirl and The Flash will have a musical crossover. Additionally, there will a The Flash and Arrow crossover too. The most anticipated four-way crossover of this season between – The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will see heroes fight ‘The Dominators — or Dominion’ as the alien race was called as a whole — were extremely technologically advanced, skilled geneticists, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes.
