Team Flash Details Season 3's Heart-Crushing Flashpoint, 'WestAllen' Future and Tom Felton's Mystery CSI

Fans of The Flash may be psyched that the show is Season 3 is tackling an epic storyline from the comic books, but Jesse L. Martin “didn’t even know what Flashpoint really was” before this, he admitted to Michael Ausiello when the cast and EPs stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE.

Now that he does know, Martin marveled, “It’s a whole new Joe-and-Barry show, and it’s fun to play.”

Maybe for him, it is. “It also hurts my heart a little bit,” teased Grant Gustin, who hastened to add that, since he was well-versed in Flashpoint going in, he knew that “obviously, we can’t do a lot of the things that happened [in the comics], so I didn’t know exactly what it was going to be until I read the script.”

And what exactly is it going to be? “It’s Flashpoint,” he assures (supported by the OMGWTF Season 3 trailer), “but it’s our version of Flashpoint, for sure.”

Also in the video Q&A above, Candice Patton said that we could “rest assured that the Barry and Iris relationship [will finally] come to fruition this season,” while new recruit Tom “Draco Malfoy” Felton shed as much light as he could on his character, Julian Dorn.

    Love The Flash cast, especially Candice ! I still can’t believe Barry went back in time and ruined WestAllen ><" Hopefully he has to work for it when he gets back, not too much though, we've waited long enough

      A reboot could lessen the baggage and that could be great: just build on the immediate chemistry and Boom!
