Subj: A way to bring RF back into the show

Tossing in spoiler tag as a precaution.
So at the end of Season 1, RF's direct linear ancestor kills himself thus erasing RF. However the result was a time storm/singularity event. I still say this was caused by the erasure of RF and not a trap he left behind for them to deal with as he went home to the future as that would risk his future and his life.
Also reference the Season 2 finale of Beast Wars for a similar time storm/singularity event.
Then we had a time remnant of RF from before his erasure running around in Season 2 and for a Season in Legends before Black Flash finally caught up with him.
However Rip Hunter has formed a new time organization to deal with aberrations in the time stream. One would think that the erasing of RF and the time storm/singularity would amount to a rather HUGE aberration.
An aberration that can only be fixed by preventing Eddie from killing himself and for Rip Hunter to send RF back to his own timeline.
Thus RF lives and we get 2 seasons at least of revisions to the Flash tv series and a season revision of Legends from the time changes. Thus the poor version of Flashpoint is undone, Caitlyn may not become KF among other things.
Or the simpler methods would be:
1. An RF from an alternate Earth arrives to menace Barry. a simple solution which I think is happening in this season's crossover event.
2. Someone else takes up the name of the Reverse Flash.
