Ever since it was announced that the start of The Flash‘s third season would involve the Flashpoint arc from the comics, fans have been wondering how significantly the timeline would be affected by Barry’s decision to save his mother. One issue on many fans minds has been that of characters previously deceased on the show. While it was obvious that Barry’s mum Nora would be returning, and the comic-con trailer confirmed that Barry’s father would also be alive, other characters (such as Eddie) have been left to fan speculation.
While we still don’t know which characters will be returning from the dead, we now know that there will be more characters previously deceased being brought back due to Flashpoint. Co-showrunner Todd Helbing teased that “there are different characters that you will see, some [that have] passed”. He also added that there are “a lot of Easter egg stuff that’s a lot of fun” in the Flashpoint arc.
The Flash returns to the CW on Tuesday October 4th.
