In the beginning of The Flash Season 3, one of the changes that Flashpoint had in the Arrowverse was that John Diggle’s daughter, Sara, ceased to exist in this new timeline as John Diggle Jr. took her place. Diggle still doesn’t know that, but his fellow Arrow cast member, Felicity Smoak does and it’s been teased that Diggle will eventually find out about the Flashpoint change and he isn’t going to be happy with Barry Allen.
At the recent Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in Atlanta, Georgia, David Ramsey, who plays Diggle, talked about how Diggle is going to react to it, but more importantly, how he will react to Barry having those type of powers. It appears that this will be addressed in the four-show crossover that is happening next week.
“It’s a great story point. You’ll see Diggle’s reaction to understanding that he once had a daughter in the big four-way crossover that I’m sure everyone here is looking forward to, and it’s going to be more compassionate than you might think. Clearly, Diggle can’t miss something that he’s never had, and from his perspective, there’s only been John, Jr. — Sara never existed for him. He’s not going to be angry. He’s going to be much more concerned about Barry’s misuse of his powers.”
