Oh my G-O-S-H!! What an amazing end to another awesome show! Not once has the Flash disappointed at all in its fledgling season and this finale shows it! As we have already guessed, Flashpoint was used as a guide for this series and it all comes full circle in the finale. Just in the aforementioned title, Flash goes back in time to save his mother from the Reverse-Flash. The journey to this point was very emotional for Barry. Here he has a chance to save his mother and he is getting various views on what to do. He finally decides to return to the past but he does take the chance to save her. Instead, he assures her that he and his father are alright. Guess the only thing he really wanted to do was say goodbye properly and give her peace of mind in her final moments. He returns to his time, confronts Eobard Thawne and is about to lose when he is saved by an unlikely hero. Eddie Thawne took the bullet (pun intended) on this one where he kills himself and erases his descendant from existence. With this, the Allen/Thawne feud will now never come to pass according to here. Now we head into another arc, Crisis of Infinite Earths. This will be explored for a little bit. Oh, did you see Jay Garrick’s helmet fall out of the wormhole. Yup, major Easter egg. While watching the final moments of the finale, that moment where I forget I’m watching a TV series came again. This has the BEST effects ever seen in a television series! The wormhole over Central City was just awesome to see! The scene was nothing short of movie quality! The Flash has gone beyond expectations, far surpassing any other live action comic series including its 1990 predecessor. With this current road unerring, the Scarlet Speedster has nowhere else to go except forward and get better.
