‘The Flash’ returns for Season 3 with a time-turning “Flashpoint,” only walk back its ‘Back to the Future’ game and make the timeline even more confusing. Plus, what happened to Iris, and just who is this “Alchemy”? Find out in our full review!

CW Seed’s Vixen made a curious gaffe last month, blithely confirming a Season 2 premiere over Twitter, only to walk back the announcement hours later. We may now know why, as Warner Bros. now confirms a separate (albeit close) date for the Season 2 premiere in October, along with new details.
The Flash will make a speedy return to TV as early as Tuesday’s Season 3 premiere, but Barry Allen wouldn’t be the fastest man alive without occasionally arriving a bit earlier than expected. So it is, that “Flashpoint” is already upon us in a first clip from the third season, as Eobard Thawne starts to lay out some of the big consequences in store.
Yesterday it was announced the evil aliens The Dominators would provide the threat so large it would take Green Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and the Legends of Tomorrow to team-up to take them down in one epic week-long crossover. But who are The Dominators? If you don’t know, we’ve assembled a Crash Course to get you up to speed.
Last year saw Arrow and Flash celebrating their history of crossovers with a tongue-in-cheek “Superhero Fight Club,” and with two new DC dramas presaging a four-way crossover this fall, who could resist a return? Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow join the fray, so get an early at The CW’s DC heroes crossing paths for another fight club bout!
Long before we knew Supergirl would join the fray, this year’s crossover between Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow was going to need some serious big bad to take on the combined heroes. Now, The CW confirms Todd MacFarlane’s DC “Dominators” will menace the various Earths, as EPs promise a movie-quality crossover.
Flash Season 2 spent so much time on its Zoom and iron-masked mysteries, it’s a relief Season 3 keeps more out in the open. Catch a first look at the real Jay Garrick’s speedy return in new “Paradox” photos, along with a closer look at Harry Potter star Tom Felton.
The DC cinematic universe at this point is its own Gordian Knot of rumors and threads of rumors that are rarely legit and usually peter out and go nowhere. On the other hand, Rick Famuyiwa just confirmed one of these rumors on his Twitter, where he posted a photo yesterday of the latest draft of The Flash script. In the photo, you can see the feet of two Funko Pop figures: the Flash, naturally, as well as those of Cyborg.
We’ll have to wait an extra week or so before The Flash finally kick’s off The CW’s DC slate, but things will look at bit different in Central City, thanks to Barry’s “Flashpoint” changes. Case in point, see Barry and the new Flash (who apparently hates the “Kid” modifier) take on a new mystery speedster in the latest Season 3 trailer!
The Flash likely has the most questions to answer of any CW series returning this fall, but is the latest poster for his October 4 return giving anything up? Well, a lot of red, as a new look at Season 3 is – I’ll say it – pretty Flash-y looking.
