THE FLASH Season One: What Have We Learned? (Part Three)

Categories Uncategorized
Welcome back to Part Three. (Part One, Part Two) With Barry’s powers
firmly established and his mission expanding beyond the original goal of “Capture
the Man in Yellow/Find others effected by the Explosion” it’s time enter the
deeper grasses of Flash lore and even expand the DC/CW Universe.
1)     
Is Eiling monitoring STAR Labs or did Wells tell
him about Firestorm?
Answered: That was never made clear but
Eiling was definitely watching Team Flash.
2)     
Despite his protests, is Cisco suspicious of
Wells?
Unclear but it seemed on some level Cisco
didn’t trust him.
3)     
Are Stein and Ronnie even still alive?
Answered: Yes.
1)     
Who was building the tech for Eiling?
Still no answer for that.
2)     
Can Barry change the past?
Answered: Yes, but at considerable risk and
considerable cost.
3)     
How big a crush does this Sherry woman have on
Joe is she’s letting people just wander in and out of her home at all hours?
No answer. Yet.
1)     
Does Mason have evidence or is he using Iris for
fishing purposes?
Answered: He seemed to have something since
he continued the investigation on his own enough to draw attention from Eobard.
2)     
What happened to the original Barry at the end
of the episode? For that matter, what happened to the Future Barry at the
beginning of the episode?  Is this a
paradox?  Does the time traveler always
rep- ARGH!
No answer: the rules of time travel seem
contingent on the method of time travel.
3)     
What happens if Barry changes events?
Answered: We find out in the next episode
but the short answer is chaos.
1)     
Will Mason’s disappearance raise Iris’
suspicions?
Answered: Yes, quite a bit in fact.
2)     
What is the missing ingredient to Barry being
able to travel through time?
Answered: Speed through proper motivation it
seems.
3)     
Can Barry bring himself to try and save his
mother now that he knows how dangerous tampering with time can be?
Answered: As it turns out, no.
1)     
Why did Thawne build the particle accelerator
and activate it over six years early?
Answered: First to give Barry his powers
then to use it as a time machine.
2)     
What happened to future Barry after he pulled
young Barry out of the house and why did Thawne lose his powers that night?
Answered: Still no answer but considering
the finale it’s likely he was Barry from the new timeline Thawne created.
3)     
Will Eddie crack under the pressure of Barry’s
secret?
Answered: No, but he was not happy with the
secrecy.
1)     
Did Larvan see Barry use his powers?
No answer.
2)     
Why is Cisco seeing the previous timeline?
Answered: Cisco became a meta-human the
night of the Explosion.
3)     
Is Cisco changed as a result of Barry using
Speed Force energy to revive him?
No answer.
We’ll leave off there. One last part to go and while it will
only be four episodes, they all left us with some important questions and
answers.  Come back next week, it’ll be
more fun than a barrel of apes… monkeys.
I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.
