In an attempt to stop the events of his mother's murder at the hand of evil Wells, Barry runs to the past to stop the events from taking place. This change in events changes everything. Barry is living with his now alive parents, but with no powers. He is with Iris but Joe a hates him. Warned of the consequences from Wells, Barry resets the timeline, but he has made some drastic mistakes that effect the whole team, and on a side note effects Team Arrow. What this created was Savitar, an armored speedster who calls himself the God of Speed, and the biggest challenge Team Flash may ever face. With Iris' live on the line Barry and the team must race against the clock to prevent a brutal future from becoming a reality.
While this isn't the worst thing on TV (I found this season much more entertaining than Agents of Sheilds last season) the mid season dip was a struggle to get over. I found myself watching the same episode 6 times at one point to try and finish the set for this review, and while I'm glad I did, this was a damn shame for a show the had a great start.
We are treated to some cool crossovers in this season, One which sees Barry and Supergirl trapped in a west end musical and the epic four show event which combined Team Flash, Team Arrow, the Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl to take on an alien threat. I enjoyed to progression of Cisco's character, he is becoming a hero in his own right and I think Jesse works well as Jesse Quick. My own down side to this season's team is Caitlin's Killer Frost and Wally. Kid Flash's character got annoying VERY quickly and I find Caitlin dull at the best of times.
This season did however end on a high point, the final few episodes were emotional to say the least and the cliff hanger ending makes me want to catch the show when it returns to Sky1 in the UK this October.
In closing you should watch this season, if not for the first and last half then for your love of the Flash character. I like the edition of Flashpoint and as a TV universe DC is outdoing Marvel TV by miles. I look forward to Season 4 and on a side note I am looking forward to Black Lightning. I just really hope there will be a Batman/Batgirl/Nightwing series to add to this universe and more importantly a real justice League show to rival The Defenders.
