The third season of The Flash started when Barry Allen averted tragedy in his past and created a massive temporal anomaly in the form of the "Flashpoint" timeline. After he fixed it, things still weren't quite right.
Just before the show's midseason finale, Barry revealed what had happened to Green Arrow, Supergirl, and the Legends of Tomorrow -- and it didn't go well, with almost everyone losing faith in The Flash for a while.
But that was all about changing the past. And now, in the second half of the season, he's trying to change a possible future that he's seen -- and that, along with a somewhat more cavalier approach to protecting the timeline on the part of the Legends, has led some fans to suggest maybe Barry should enlist the aid of his time-traveling friends in helping to save Iris's life.
One of the showrunners told ComicBook.com that's not in the cards, though.
"We saw in the [Invasion!] crossover how well they responded to Barry creating the Flashpoint Universe," said executive producer Aaron Helbing. "I don't think he's really concerned what the Legends think. I think his main concern is saving the woman he loves."
So it seems like even though fans might think they'd be sympathetic to his cause, Barry isn't comfortable enough in the idea to actually put Iris's fate in their hands.
