Reply Subj: The reason for why I think Reverse Flash CANNOT kill Barry

    Wells/Zoom/Reverse Flash has set out to ensure that Barry does become the Flash by being the killer of his mother, he built the particle accelerator and knowingly set it to fail so that Barry and others would become super powered. Reverse Flash is easily one step ahead of Barry in terms of planning and knowledge and could kill Barry with ease, but that is not his end goal.

    Unless Barry in 2024 makes the big sacrifice to stop the Crisis on Infinite Earths, then Reverse Flash's future will be negated.

But why? If you follow the logic so far then Wells/Reverse-Flash has not only travelled back in time to our presentday after the Flash dissapears in a major Crisis event a few years in the future, but he has purposely rewritten Barry Allen/Flash history.
Th Particle accelerator - was this always Barry's Origin point or was it the classic thunderbolt & chemicals, of which he has just overwritten? Would the likes of Firestorm and Blackout have never existed if not for Wells, or again has he just replaced and rewritten their origins?
Henry Allen - Did Wells/Reverse-Flash purposely kill his wife and set Henry up for a prison sentence? If so then again he is rewriting history, to what end? To 'toughen' Barry up? Make him suffer as revenge for his heroic actions in the future?

All of this seems to come out from the Crisis in the future in which the Flash has dissapeared. Dead? Why does Wells care if Barry was his enemy? Or... is Wells using the Reverse-Flash identity in the stead of the real Reverse-Flash, who is a compppletely different person?
That one doesn't make much sense, but then I am unsure whether ANY of this makes sense. It is probobly not a wise thing to make use of a time-travel plot like this as a part of the series' backbone, the paradoxes that come out of it are likely not to play well in the longterm.
