Quote:10. Henry Allen: now here is an interesting twist: if RF has truly been negated from existence and is not restored, we are talking a TIME STORM that is reaching back 15 years to when Barry's mom was killed. Thus she shouldn't be dead and he shouldn't be in prison. But again the more things change the more they stay the same and it is possible her death and his being in prison may still be intact despite RF being erased.
Quote:This is pretty much why Professor Stein was being very cautious about this whole thing and made it clear that Barry changing a day was one thing, 15 years is a whole different matter. The butterfly/snowball effect is pretty much impossible to calculate fully.
Bearing that in mind might it be the case that when The Flash gets home he finds his dad still in jail and his mom still murdered in mysterious circumstances... which all leads to his meeting with 'Zoom'. Who is the Reverse-Flash of this altered timeline, 'Zoom' is what time and fate has created to plug the gap in history left by the deleted Eobard Thawne. So Barry's history stays near enough unchanged despite his vanquishing Thawne and there is no convenient release for dad... I think this is the only thing that makes sense, as if they are serious about Eobard Thawne being erased retroctively the show itself gets retractively rewritten thanks to the time paradox it has been built upon! All things considered I would say the new Reverse-Flash figure would be a rebooted Eddie Thawne, the way he was neatly picked up by the wormhole effect made me think there must be a reason for that scene to happen like that given he was supposedly dead and gone anyway.
I confess to looking forward to Jay Garrick, there must be some reason for his interest in Barry and I hope it is nothing more than a solid friendship.
eddie's body was left at ground zero of the time storm forming and beginning to draw everything into it. So his body is the first to be erased by the storm.
I don't think there will be much more to it, but we shall see.
