The Flash wrapped up its second season with some major implications about where the DC TV universe would be heading going forward and it looks like we have gotten another hint from star Grant Gustin’s twitter account.
@grantgust I'm cool with you telling them the title 🙂

In the season two finale of The Flash Barry Allen went back in time to save his mother Nora from being killed by the Reverse-Flash. It has already been seen throughout the show that these sort of changes can have major implications on the entire universe but comic fans recognized this change from another DC story. “Flashpoint” is a 2011 story in the comics where Barry Allen went back in time and saved his mother. The story was the lead in to DC’s New 52 launch and the effects are still being felt today. The episode being called “Flashpoint” could point to a variation of a ‘re-boot’ for the DC TV universe and perhaps one that will incorporate Supergirl now that that show has moved to the CW.
The Flash returns on October 4 at 8 PM ET on the CW for a third season.
