The CW has released new photos from the upcoming third season of The Flash.
The photos include shots of Barry Allen and his happy parents, Henry and Nora after Barry went back in time and saved Nora from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash. Speaking of the Reverse-Flash, he's seen behind bars, further confirming that this is the "Flashpoint" timeline created by Barry's jaunt backwards in the timestream.
There's also shots of Wally West in his Kid Flash costume. We've seen the costume in promo images before, but The CW hadn't confirmed when in the season Wally would be suiting up. We can now tell that it's in the season premiere, which suggests Wally may only be Kid Flash in the "Flashpoint" universe.
Check out the photos in the gallery below. The Flash Season 3 will premiere Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
After successfully closing the Singularity from destroying Central City, Barry thinks he's seen the worst… but the arrival of Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) reveals that the Singularity actually opened portals to an alternate Earth, known as Earth-2, which is being terrorized by a formidable evil speedster named Zoom. As Zoom sends an army of Earth-Two meta-humans to Earth-1 to defeat Barry, he receives unexpected assistance from the Earth-Two doppelganger of his former mentor, Harrison Wells. Meanwhile, Cisco discovers that he, too, was affected by the dark matter of the Particle Accelerator and must come to terms with his newfound powers. As Barry struggles to juggle life as a hero, he opens his heart to Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten), a spunky detective paired with Joe West, but realizes just how hard it is to find happiness when the lives of everyone you love are at stake. He finds some solace in the companionship of his father, Henry Allen, who was freed from a wrongful life sentence... but when Zoom kills Henry before Barry's eyes, Barry's newfound stability is shattered.
Blinded by anger, Barry unwittingly plays into Zoom's game and uncovers the evil speedster's true goal: to destroy all Earths in the multiverse. In the race of his life, Barry ultimately gets the upper hand against Zoom and defeats his nemesis. But unable to celebrate victory, Barry makes a world-shaking decision and speeds back in time to the night his mother died to stop Reverse Flash from killing her, irrevocably changing his past and redetermining his future.
