My head is spinning.

From the original timeline: Barry became Flash in 2020, disappeared in 2023, but had to reappear sometime after because most of his rogues are from far in the future, right?

Thawne Timeline: Barry becae Flash in 2014, but still disappears in 2024, has to reappear sometime after because his rogues are from far in the future.

Unless, he travels into the future multiple times. Is this Thane Timeline Flash a meanie that all his rogues hate him? From the comics, I only remember Thawne wanting him dead. Everybody else just seemed to be having a playdate with him.

Also, was there an error in this episode? AK thanked Harrison Wells for the 'fuel' for his time machine. But wasn't it really Thawne who created the 'fuel' (whatever that glowing ball was). Even though Thawne was posing as Harrison Wells. The particle accelerator was Harrison's invention, I don't think the glowing ball was.

Killer Frost? Meh. I was giving a big heart pound to Caitlin because she stayed awake during her own surgery. Shame she is now a one note villain. At least she won't be villain of the week. They might even change her into an anti-hero for the 4th season.

They should have died Barry's hair blonde for the future episode. That would have been funny

He realizes that all his major foes are from the future and they have foreknowledge of what is to come.

So how do you fight that when anything you can think of is likely what you did per future history and they are ready to counter it?

The only thing in this case is to fight fire with fire, or future knowledge with future knowledge.

Of course there is still the following problems

1. You shouldn't know too much about the future.

2. To see the future is to be seen BY the future and thus it starts to lock into place.

3. As much as you may want to change things, you may be trapped in a moebius strip of time and cannot or dare not make any changes. Jeffrey Sinclair on Babylon 5 is a classic case of this scenario.
