Quote:The writers have stated this is Reverse Flash from before he absorbed Wells which means this is RF from before he tried to go back to kill Barry and kills his mother instead.
Quote:Which means that the writers better have one HELL of an explanation for this. Eddie Thawne was the direct linear ancestor of RF and by killing himself he ERASED RF from existence and caused the singularity/time storm.
Quote:By all rights there should be NO REVERSE FLASH.
Quote:However there is the other theory about time travel and temporal mechanics that some things MUST EXIST and CANNOT NOT EXIST. Therefore TIME itself may have somehow compensated and kept RF in existence.
Or... (and I will manfully cling to it till the bitter end), there is my pet theory that Eddie is still alive. Back from the dead, rescucitated, whatever. If Jay could survive a trip through the singularity then Eddie's body may have as well, finding some kindly figure who was able to revive him and so create a loophole for Eobard to retractively rebound back from his erasure from the timeline.
Quote:1, Once again the powerless JAY story arc is getting a bit thin. They have the speed formula, Velocity 6. ALSO they could try to recharge Jay like they did with Barry in Season 1 when he was siphoned.
His character arc and infrequent appearances are odd I agree. I really like this character, a terrific translation to television that keeps the look and flavour of the comicbook version, a point deducted for not keeping him as an older seasoned hero though...
I do wonder if there is some plotpoint that only one person can access the full speedforce per earth, that is assuming that the Speedforce is universal and accesses each earth out there however. Jay might return to Earth-2 and find he is back at full power...
Reverse flash would be the only one that could defeat Zoom then, and barry will have to accept that truth...
And Dr cwells will use the blood of the Turtle on himself then, to give himself time slowing powers to attack Zoom?
And how can RF still exist in any time line, unless this is really a totally new earth from before?
Where is the Dr to explain all of this!
