Reply Subj: Here's a SPOILER FILLED question about the season 3 situation

Previous Post

At the start of the series, we learned that when Thawne killed Nora, for some reason his powers faded. To get himself back to his own time, he took over Wells' life and caused the reactor accident five years early. This made Barry the Flash five years early, and increased Thawne's chances of getting back to his own time.

This time around, it's still the Thawne that killed Nora. Not a later or earlier version of him. (Barry just took him unconscious out of the house before he could kill her, and locked him up; it was this Thawne that Barry then released.)

Thawne kills Nora, somehow the earlier Barry doesn't stop him, Thawne brings present Barry back to the present, and then takes off.

Why are Thawne's powers still working? Shouldn't they have faded just like they did last time? Since they haven't faded, WHY haven't they faded?

And what about Wells? Did Thawne go back to that night and kill Wells or not? If his powers are fine (and it seems they are), then Thawne had no reason to kill Wells that night. So is Wells alive, or not?

If Wells is NOT alive... WHY isn't he? And if Thawne never took over his life, who played Wells over the time covered by the first season in this new version of the timeline?

Have the writers ROYALLY messed up?

RF is a walking temporal anomaly, it is clear that certain laws of time are not binding to him at all, particularly the fact that Eddie's death should have totally erased RF from past, present and future.

However from what we saw, things are restored to how Barry remembers them, except for the new Iris/Joe junk they threw in. However we shall see as the season progresses as to what else has changed. Then Barry may have to make a choice about whether to go back and revise things again or let things stand.

However since things are restored and Barry is the Flash once again, it stands to reason that RF still went back and took Wells place and triggered the explosion and storm that empowered Barry.

Being from the future, RF does have great knowledge of what is to come and he is facing a younger Barry that is still learning things rather then the Barry we saw at the end of Season 1 when young Barry warped back to save his mom. In fact, I bet older Barry warned young Barry to stay back due to older Barry having experienced the Flashpoint.
