The premise of the show has been that Reverse Flash went back in time to kill Kid Barry, future Flash stops RF but RF kills Nora.
This apparently changed things so that Barry wouldn't be the FLASH and RF lost his powers due to the changes and power drain.
RF then kills Well's wife and then absorbs/kills Wells and then makes the particle accelerator happen a few years earlier so that he can quickly recreate Barry and by proxy other meta humans so that he can get Barry's speed to aid him in going home.
Season 1 ends with Barry going back, about to intervene but his future self for unknown reasons signals him to not intervene. Barry closes the door and listens until RF is gone then comforts his mom as she dies.
Now Season 2 ends with Barry warping to the past and waiting outside his home until Future Flash takes Kid Barry away, THEN he goes in and beats RF senseless and then his past self does the big temporal fade out as time changes.
So in theory, Barry has reset his personal timeline back to how it SHOULD have been before RF changed things. He will still become the Flash and metahumans will arise, but now it SHOULD be occurring a few years later then it did with RF's changes.
This will affect things like Firestorm, Wally, Joe, Caitlyn, Cisco, Nora and Henry directly.
By proxy the entire city would be affected in that Henry isn't framed for murder and put on a public trial. How many lives were affected by that? Police, paramedics, detectives, the courts, the media...the public. all those lives will be affected, for the most part in a minor way, but perhaps a few major changes might occur.
Logically, Flashpoint Paradox should not occur but it likely will and may cause Supergirl's universe to merge and bring her into the Flash/Arrowverse.
However something ELSE would have to occur that would be bad enough for Barry to have to go back and intercept his past self and stop him from stopping RF.
