The Flash's Season 2 finale was packed with a lot of exciting moments, but it was the episode’s final minutes that especially paved the way for what’s coming in Season 3. Traveling back in time to the year 2000, Barry rushed to his childhood home and prevented Reverse-Flash from killing his mother. Now Nora Allen is alive, and while viewers who are unfamiliar with the comics were left wondering where the show goes from here, comic book fans know what’s likely coming in Season 3. We're likely to see Flashpoint, the 2011 story where Barry took the same action and it resulted in the DC universe becoming a much worse place.

Those who have read Flashpoint or watched the animated movie, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, know there’s no way that the TV show will be able to adapt the story word for word. That’s a fact. However, much like how Captain America: Civil War took liberties with the original Civil War story while still retaining its basic themes, there are directions The Flash can go down and still remain true to the spirit of Flashpoint, either directly or indirectly. Here are the seven best ways The Flash can properly adapt the Flashpoint story for Season 3.

Bring Captain Cold Back As Citizen Cold
Let’s start with someone who can easily be included: Leonard Snart, better known in Flashpoint as Citizen Cold. In this timeline, Cold is publicly regarded as a hero rather than a villain, and he’s the one who is Central City’s official protector. Legends of Tomorrow fans saw Snart die in Season 1’s penultimate episode, but thanks to Wentworth Miller’s new DC deal, he’ll be recurring on both that show and The Flash. So you can be almost certain that in this new timeline on The Flash, Snart will still be alive and operating as as a Citizen rather than a Captain. That said, those who read the Citizen Cold tie-in miniseries know that this version of Snart not only still loves money, but is arguably more ruthless. If Snart ends up working with Barry in this adaptation, don’t be surprised if he double-crosses him, whether it’s for a quick payday or other reasons.
