The Flash just had its season 2 finale this week and if you haven't seen it, you've been warned, because there will be spoilers ahead. Barry has spent the entire season battling Zoom, who was really Hunter Zolomon. Though Barry ultimately succeeding in defeating him, he still suffered one incredibly tragic loss. He lost his mother when he was a young boy and now as an adult, in the same childhood home, he watched his father die in front of him. So now, both of his parents have been killed by speedsters.
Barry tells Iris that he feels more hopeless and broken than he ever has and he almost doesn't know what to do with himself. So, he decides to try and fix all of this by going back in time and saving his mother from dying, regardless of what consequences may come. Just so you know, Barry has been told more than once the consequences of altering events when time travelling. The second season ends with Barry's mom still alive, and what comes next...will have to wait until season 3.
But there are any number of things that can happen next season, and there are plenty of things fans are dying to see. It looks like this upcoming third season could possibly be adapting Flashpoint - a story in which Barry's mom Nora is still alive, yet many of the DC heroes are villains or at war with each other. This possibility provides a whole new context for what fans can expect come this fall.
10 Booster Gold
9 More Jay Garrick
8 Jesse Quick as a Speedster
7 Wally West as a Speedster
6 Bart Allen
5 Mirror Master
4 More Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne
3 Barry and Iris Dating/Married
2 Costume in the Ring
1 Thomas Wayne as Batman
This one may not actually happen but it's still fun to hope. In Flashpoint, Barry drives to Wayne Manor looking for Bruce and runs into Batman. Turns out that Batman isn't Bruce Wayne, it's his father Thomas. During that night after the opera, Bruce was killed, sending Thomas over the edge. This Batman definitely has no problem with guns or killing and helped Barry get his speed back. One way around this is bringing in Robert Queen instead. On Earth 2, Oliver died instead of his father, leading to him eventually becoming the Green Arrow. And since Green Arrow is pretty much the Batman equivalent on the CW, the show may decide to go in that direction.
