Barry's actions in season 2 are still being felt to a large degree in season 3 of The Flash, but fans still haven't seen the extent of the damage the well-intentioned speedster caused.
Director Kevin Smtih, who was at the helm of tonight's episode Killer Frost, was asked what he thought about the Flashpoint episode that kicked off the season during a recent Facebook Live. He rates that episode in particular pretty high amongst the show's best, but he also revealed that fans haven't seen anything yet in regards to the ramifications of Barry's time traveling.
"I loved it. I thought, it's actually one of my top five favorite episodes of the show ever was this season's premiere of The Flashpoint episode. You know, Rancid like, other people were like "Aw man, I wish they'd done the Flashpoint from the comics". Well, they can't, but I like what they've done with this Flashpoint. It sets up the entire season and wait until you see where it goes, and I know where it's going. You're gonna love, like they're gonna have their own identity now as Flashpoint, you know, instead of people just going "well Flashpoint! We know what that is, this is the Geoff Johns story from the comics". Now Flashpoint's going to be known for something else completely different by the time the season's done because wait until you see what Barry really did to the timeline. It's going to blow your mind folks!"
As to what that means, it's anyone's guess. Barry might've caused even further damage to the future, or perhaps he caused a rupture to the very fabric of time. Things should start to come a bit more into focus tonight and in the upcoming Invasion! crossover, though before they can get to the bottom of that they have to stop their friend from turning into a psychotic villain. Killer Frost picks up right where the last episode left off, which includes a closer look at season 3's big bad Savitar. You can view the official description for the episode below.
“KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; KILLER FROST EMERGES — Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) uses her powers to save Barry (Grant Gustin) but as her mother predicted, the effort unleashes her inner Killer Frost. Killer Frost goes on a rampage looking for Dr. Alchemy, kidnapping Julian (Tom Felton) and battling both The Flash and Vibe (Carlos Valdes). Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) have a heart to heart.”
