CW’s The Flash Debuts Images From Flashpoint Storyline

Season three gets a little crazy on The Flash, where the show will parallel the comics story “Flashpoint”, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The story line includes an alternate timeline, “the Reverse Flash”, “Kid Flash”, dead parents coming back to life–all the good stuff. While only Barry’s mom comes back to life in the comics, both his parents are brought back for the small screen counterpart. In the comics, all the cities heroes have gone dark side, with Captain Cold hailed as the laudable “Citizen Cold”. We wonder how Cisco feels about the name change.

Thanks to Katie Yu at the CW, we’ve got a whole series of images from the upcoming season of The Flash. Barry is facing friend and foe alike. Now the only question is, where’s Detective West in all this? Is that the trade off for having parents? I feel as though his absence from all promo images is suspicious. Then again, we did get to see him tap dance at Comic Con. Maybe I’m just being greedy.
