    Joe questions RF, RF states he is glad to see Dr Wells, but the containment field is fluctuating. RF states he is the Reverse of the Flash. RF then pulls Wells into the field and beats the tar out of him, they shut down the field and RF leaves with the tachyon device.


Are we assuming RF could escape the field because it was fluctuating?


    Quote:
    Eddie is puzzled as to why he is still alive, which again is likely that he is the linear ancestor of the Reverse Flash.


True.


    Quote:
    Later at Joes they celebrate the holidays, and Cisco tells Joe that he saw the electric energy from Flash and Reverse flash about how it was red and yellow., just like how Barry described the thing that killed his mother. Thus there were TWO SPEEDSTERS that night. One was Reverse Flash and the other had to be the FLASH, which means it was likely Barry that saves his younger self after RF kills his Mom. Which means Barry is hitting TIME WARP speeds soon.


While I definitely think adult Barry as the Flash was there at the scene when his mother died, I don't think it was Barry who saved his younger self. I think it was the Reverse Flash. Barry would have been focused on saving his mother. RF would have been focused on killing Barry's mother but also on preserving Barry's life, so Barry could grow up to be the Flash and do whatever super-important thing he needs to do in the future.

I also am thinking RF killed Barry's mother out of complicated motives. Maybe he did it out of hate for Barry, but he also may have done it to ensure Barry would become the Flash. Maybe if Barry's mother hadn't died, the resulting alternate future would not have been conducive to Barry becoming the Flash.
