New photos show Barry and his parents, Wally West as Kid Flash, and more
With more than a month to go before The Flash returns to the airwaves for Season 3, The CW has today released a full gallery of new images from the season premiere, the appropriately titled ‘Flashpoint.’
There are several shots of Barry in costume as The Flash, but most of the photos plainly reveal the after effects of his decision to alter the timeline.
Keiynan Lonsdale is front-and-center in several photos as Kid Flash, the super-powered alternate version of Wally West. There also a few glimpses of Barry with his parents, Nora and Henry, both alive and well.
Here’s the official description of The Flash Season 3:
After successfully closing the Singularity from destroying Central City, Barry thinks he’s seen the worst… but the arrival of Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) reveals that the Singularity actually opened portals to an alternate Earth, known as Earth-2, which is being terrorized by a formidable evil speedster named Zoom. As Zoom sends an army of Earth-Two meta-humans to Earth-1 to defeat Barry, he receives unexpected assistance from the Earth-Two doppelganger of his former mentor, Harrison Wells. Meanwhile, Cisco discovers that he, too, was affected by the dark matter of the Particle Accelerator and must come to terms with his newfound powers. As Barry struggles to juggle life as a hero, he opens his heart to Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten), a spunky detective paired with Joe West, but realizes just how hard it is to find happiness when the lives of everyone you love are at stake. He finds some solace in the companionship of his father, Henry Allen, who was freed from a wrongful life sentence… but when Zoom kills Henry before Barry’s eyes, Barry’s newfound stability is shattered.
Blinded by anger, Barry unwittingly plays into Zoom’s game and uncovers the evil speedster’s true goal: to destroy all Earths in the multiverse. In the race of his life, Barry ultimately gets the upper hand against Zoom and defeats his nemesis. But unable to celebrate victory, Barry makes a world-shaking decision and speeds back in time to the night his mother died to stop Reverse Flash from killing her, irrevocably changing his past and redetermining his future.
The Flash returns on October 4, 8/7c on The CW.
