      But do we know for a fact it isn't? Original Barry may have resolved one crisis event only for Eobard's time tampering in the past giving rise to another one years earlier. Once original Barry's past was altered that offset what I assume was his sacrifice in his timeline. The crisis adapted. The Flash is for whatever reason meant to die in the crisis...the crisis will come earlier because Barry got his powers earlier.

    No, we don't know anything for certain.

    But as far as I know - and there's been no reason given in the show to assume otherwise - the Crisis has nothing to do with either Barry or Thawne. Neither of them initiate it, though at least one of them takes part in it.

    It's all down to the Monitor/Anti-Monitor (If they're going a similar route to the comics), and again there's no reason to assume their lives are any different in these divergent realities.

    As for the Crisis 'adapting'...

    How? Why? It's a spatiotemporal event, not a sentient creature.

Because patterns repeat. Barry became the Flash even though his history was altered. On Nazi Earth Oliver still becomes an archer. On Earth 2 Laurel still became a canary.

We know original timeline Barry went through a crisis event and disappeared. I'm going out on a limb and saying that crisis was averted. But Eobard changed the timeline...now that original Barry doesn't die. So he doesn't sacrifice himself to stop that Crisis. The events that led to that crisis play out but play out at different times because Barry got his powers several years earlier. Barry getting his powers earlier doesn't affect just his timeline...he's had adventures in several timelines (Earth 2, Earth-X, Supergirl earth etc). The Legends of Tomorrow probably wouldn't exist without Eobard's meddling and Barry's indirect influence (Firestorm for instance). So everything they've done in the timeline also all goes back to Eobard and Barry.

Eobard's meddling just hasn't affected one timeline's past. Earth 2, Earth X, Supergirl earth in 2019, etc would all be different if Eobard hadn't meddled. Eobard has disrupted the course of events in several timelines which is going to butterfly effect with people zipping back and forth to alternate worlds all the time. Original Barry stopped the original crisis...I think Eobard's actions result in another one that comes earlier. Once that's over the multiverse will die or reset or something and one day a new crisis will happen but it will be in a hypothetical point in time when the Arrowverse shows are already cancelled \:\)
