Even though Iris West finally told Barry Allen she was ready to take their relationship to the next stage and shared a kiss and told each other that they love each other, Barry couldn't overcome the grief he felt following the death of his father, so he made the fateful decision to go into the past and prevent Reverse-Flash from murdering his mother.
When Season 3 kicks off, we will see how Barry's decision has altered the timeline. One of the biggest changes is Barry doesn't have much of a relationship with Iris in the Flashpoint timeline. With his mother alive and father not being wrongfully imprisoned for her murder, Barry was never taken in and raised by Joe West — thus never bonding with Iris.
Now that Barry's parents are alive and well, he can focus on winning over the life of his life. "You'll get to see Barry try and woo her in Flashpoint," Candice Patton told TV Line. "It's really, really sweet. It reminds me of the pilot." She added, "The best part of that was playing Barry and me meeting for the first time. It reminds me of the pilot. When you see them for the first time together, there's something very magical about that, and we recreate that in Flashpoint. [Director] Kevin Smith was talking about it. He said he saw the first episode, and there was something really, really special about it. I would agree. I think fans are going to really enjoy that."
Patton also revealed that, as the season unfolds, Barry won't be the only one that knows that the timeline has been affected. "Barry is aware of changes, and we all slowly become aware of things being different in other timelines," she shared.
Blinded by anger, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) 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.
The cast also features Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, and Tom Cavanaugh as Dr. Harrison Wells.
