The entirety of the first season of The Flash was wonderful, and it was capped off by a phenomenal Season finale. That finale left us with far more questions than answers, as good season enders usually do. What follows may delve into spoiler territory, so if you haven’t seen the final episode of the season, do so before reading this post. With time travel already having occurred on the show, what will The Flash encounter next? Grant Gustin chimed in saying; “What’s fun about this show is that there’s going to be multiple timelines as we move forward. I think we’re going to start showing Earth-One and Earth-Two in the near future. There will be kind of different dimensions going on.” Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne/ The Reverse-Flash appeared to meet his end in the last episode, however executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told the Hollywood Reporter that both the character, and actor Tom Cavanagh will return in season 2. More over he said; We are going to introduce a few more speedsters next year and a bunch more villains. How they and those villains come about is part of the surprise of season two. We’re really excited. [Executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] and myself and [executive producer] Geoff Johns and the writers, the cast, the crew, the directors — we are so proud of this season of television. It really is a high mark for all of us and we feel a great deal of pressure and anxiety to live up to it, because it’s been so well received. As proud as excited as we are about everything we’ve done this year, we really are just as proud and excited for all the things we are planning coming up and hopefully people will continue to take this ride with us.” If you’re wondering how the events of the season finale affected the current timeline of the show, prepare to have your mind blown. “Part of the fun of The Flash is when you have people dabbling in sci-fi physics, they’re significantly altering the world. We established in the finale that the entire series of The Flash is, in itself, an alternate timeline that’s been skewed from the real one. Wells setting off the accelerator created all the metahumans, and the results of the singularity will also have long-term effects.” The Flash was the best superhero television show of the 2014-2015 season. With all the interesting and exciting plans mentioned above, I am confident that season 3 can be just as good if not better than its predecessor!
