Grant Gustin talks ‘The Flash’ season 3, Flashpoint not lasting all season long

The finale of season two on The Flash involved Barry Allen going back in time and saving his mother from murder and star Grant Gustin discussed the fall out (called Flashpoint in the comic books) from that move during a  interview with Kevin Smith and IMDB during Comic-Con.

“People were like, ‘Why did he do that?’ And I think that he wasn’t going to do that, but I think that sitting on that porch, having just defeated Zoom, Iris says to Barry what he’s always wanted to hear, and he feels empty inside,” explained Gustin when addressing the motivation of Barry, ignoring the advice from his “future self.”

The ‘Flashpoint’ storyline centers on Barry’s actions, which create an alternate timeline of drastically different proportions. Though it’s been confirmed that this new reality will play into the third season, Gustin confirmed that it won’t be a season-long storyline.

“I think we can state Flashpoint does not last all season long,” Gustin said. “But there are permanent ramifications.”

Check out the season 3 SDCC teaser trailer below.

The footage confirms Barry’s mom is alive, his father (John Wesley Shipp) is not in prison. Neither West, father (Jesse L Martin) Iris (Candice Patton) know Barry and Kid Flash is the hero in town as Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) is the speedster. Carlos Valdes plays Cisco, a very powerful tech guru, almost Lex Luthor like and Barry is quickly thrown into a new problem of restoring the correct timeline.

The New 52 version of the Black Racer is the evil speedster, played by Todd Lasance.

The Flash season 3 begins on October 4.
