    We have who Alchemy is, what threat he is preparing the world for (crossover tie-in perhaps?) and how he's doing it. I think it's on par with last season's who is Zoom thing but seemingly less convoluted for now.

    Could Alchemy give powers to the non-meta Hunter Zolomon of Earth 1? Not that I would want to see that, but isn't that something Alchemy might want to do, so that he has the powers of Earth 2 Zolomon?

    Or is Alchemy only giving powers to those who had them in Flashpoint?

    I'm not sure if this is really the case because I don't recall Caitlin having powers in Flashpoint. So it could be encompassing other Earths.

    I hope Alchemy's identity isn't a big mystery, sometimes the bad guy should just be the bad guy.

    If it's a mystery, at least don't make him someone in Barry's circle of acquaintance.

    Cool that Mark Hamill is back as the Trickster.
    Hopefully the episode takes place on Jay Garrick's Earth with Amanda Pays playing
    Joan Garrick.

    Maybe that's why he looks like the Joker. He's Earth 3's Trickster.

    hey guys, I'm just curious, but where are Central City and Keystone City located in the tv show?

    according to the DC wiki, in the comics, Central City is in Missouri and Keystone City is in Kansas. And the two are "sister cities" across the rive from each other.

    so, it seems both cities could be analogous to Kansas City, with a Kansas City, Kansas side ( Keystone City ) and a Kansas City, Missouri side ( Central City ).

    and some maps also show that Central and Keystone are located roughly where Kansas City is located in their respective states.

    is that still the case in the tv show?

    I don't think it's been implied that Caitlin's powers came from Alchemy. Probably just a late manifestation of particle accelerator powers like with Cisco.

    Either that or it's most likely a side effect from Barry's time traveling where, in the previous timeline, Caitlin was fine and normal but only after Barry altered the timeline once more...she came out of it with powers.

    In some ways, RF wasn't kidding when he said that Barry was now the villain. If Caitlin becomes the evil version of Killer Frost then that's going to be all on Barry. Dante is dead, Edward Claris (the Rival) is also dead, and Frankie is now a metahuman who's just experienced more trauma as a result of having powers now.

    TBF, that can't all be laid at Barry's feet. Yes, he was the catalyst, but people still make their own decisions. No one made Claris do evil things, and no one can simply make Caitlin the evil version of herself. As for Frankie, yes that is on Barry, but only in that his actions made her gaining powers a possibility. Alchemy is still more directly responsible for Claris and Frankie, as he took an active part in transferring their powers back to them.
    And Dante... I still wouldn't say that was Barry's fault. Deaths that are accidental should never be assigned to any particular person. It was an accident. Unless we find out later on that it wasn't...

    If Reverse Flash were still locked up, he would never go back in time to change history on Legends of Tomorrow and would never

    kill Hourman by vibrating through his chest.

    If Barry found out the consequences of resetting Flash point, surely he would find this worse than what occurred in Flash point, which wasn't really all that bad. Wally wasn't dead, and Barry was just forgetting memories. But most of it was fine.

    You realize the reserve flash against the Legends is the one before he killed Barry's mother.. Not the post-flashpoint one.

    That's why Harrison Wells knew Rip hunter & Jay Garrick's helmet..

    so after seeing events of barry meeting people like plastque that kid that needed help with a cure of turning old in season 2 Due to using his powers of super human strenght . and magenta and magnetic powers . they just neended help over all as meta humans and I looked this up after seeing that red headed villain in supergirl this week . that looks like the metahuman villain volcana who's from superman Rogues gallery, I did some looking up.


    and the best way for meta's that aren't criminal's to lern to control ttheir power's or find cure's if it's some how harming or ther issues's would to have what was inthe DC lore already it's called the Center for Paranormal Studies


    ^^there's the link
    Which researched and helped meta humans. tthere was one in metropolis inthe DCAU.

    it should be a branch of Sta rlabs in their live action series as better way help certain meta's that don't care to commit crimes just learn to conrtol their powers . and maybe see some of the other mknown meta human as verious student of varying age groups like teen's to university / gradschool


    dc already created this in tv media already via the animated series of superman to JLU. even though it's similar to X-men minus the X-men.


    after all they showed they can't be all villains.

    I'm actually surprised that they haven't reused any previous speed shots/inserts from previous seasons/episodes as of yet.

    the shows doing well enough in the ratings unlike arrow which isn't show on some of the channel it used to be shown on. in the area's I'm at any way. and I have fiber wire (rivals satellite )

    for example when arrow started it was show on alot of channels when it aired on the canadian side be side the cw channels

    but since season4 ended last year.

    where it was all CTV channel's they moved it this year to only ctv2 channels

    so anyone that doesn't have cw channels or ctv2 channels here can't see arrow.


    But flash however is still aired on normal ctv channel's cause it now the more popular of shows. So my guess is they aren't reusing the speed shots/inserts from previous seasons/episodes cause it was a way of saving money.


    But flash is doing so well in rating's that they have the fund's to not worry budget wise.

    I miss Eddie! He was such a likable character. If there was someone else Iris could be with be and be happy, it would be Eddie!

    With Flashpoint, he could be anywhere. I could imagine he transferred out and Barry of course wouldn't remember that, nor that Eddie and Iris still had a relationship in the new timeline as well. Nor would Barry broach the subject, thinking Eddie is still dead and not wanting prod old wounds.

    Bring him back!

    (i tried to create a new thread but cannot do that at this time.)

    Time remnant puzzle.

    Hello. I like watching the flash - But just a bit puzzled about time remnants.

    If a person goes back in time for a few hours/minutes - there are now 2 of them - the original/real person & a time remnant (TR).

    In the story, one of them (usually) gets killed.

    A bad guy creates a Time remnant - now, if 1 of them gets killed - then the bad guy gets killed right - but somehow, the story keeps the bad guy alive after a TR is killed.

    1) they go back in time, & create a time remnant.

    Person A is their past, person B is the current / real person.

    if person B gets killed, then they are dead. (its the future of person A, so they are dead)

    if person A gets killed, person A cant go back in time - so cant create the remnant. so they are still dead..

    Can anyone help with this riddle that makes some sort of sense..
