Season two ended with Flash (played by Grant Gustin) defeating Zoom and travelled back in time to save his mother from The Reverse. The result was that he created an alternate universe which was not much different from the present one. It is called Flashpoint. The Flash now has to struggle with the dilemma of whether Flashpoint is actually a good thing.
With Flashpoint we get to see Barry living a rather calm life for a short period. Soon in Flashpoint two new villains appear. Doctor Alchemy and Savitar (both voiced by Tobin Bell) enter the picture and Flash has to deal with another super fast villain in Savitar. Soon Iris’s (played by Candice Patton) life is in danger. Now it becomes a race against the clock to change the awful future Barry has seen.
Totally has a comic book feel to it. Though I am not sure that hardcore comic book or The Flash fans will be happy with what is going on here. There is too much reliance upon the human elements of the story and romances rather than the action parts that comic fans rely upon. Also, enough with all the villains being fast. Gets boring very quickly.
With Arrow and Supergirl there is a whole superhero universe happening on television. Like many of the DC Comic series there are plenty of ups and downs in the show. Season 3 is very uneven. Cohesiveness is a problem throughout the first half. During the time in Flashpoint the series turned to more of a drama than a superhero action series. Though it left me with some hope as the last half dozen episodes were rather strong.
