According to who? After those first two arcs, Jenkins was bombarded by requests from editorial to write certain stories. He wasn't writing what HE wanted to write, he was doing what was asked of him. See, for example, the Queen arc. After that, he got maybe one or two issues to himself before the title was hijacked once again by the sequel to Sins Past, which he didn't write. After that story, Marvel decided to cancel the series. So he never got a chance to take the Flash subplot as far as he wanted to take it.

What 2 arcs ? He dropped it after the FIRST arc with Venom.

The Queen arc is always the exemple given by Jenkins's fans but EVEN if you skip on it, (and he could have adressed the Flash sub-plot during it, even just in a "freakin" line here and there ...) Jenkins still had issues 7 to 14, 21 and 22, and 27 of Spectacular to adress and follow that. That makes 11 issues in which he CHOSE not to use or adress the Flash sub-plot.
