The CW’s comic action drama The Flash (Arrow spin off) returns tonight for its 2nd Season Premiere
SEASON 2 – EPISODE 1
“The Man Who Saved Central City”
⇒ LAST SEASON Barry visits Wells where Wells describes their relationship in the future, why he killed Barry’s mother, and why he ultimately had to help Barry become the Flash. Wells also propositions Barry, requesting help creating a wormhole where Wells can return to his time, while also allowing Barry to go back in time to save his mother. Barry and the team are conflicted, as this could alter the timeline in an undeterminable way. Barry decides to go through with it, so Wells informs him that he will need to turn the particle accelerator on and then super speed at the right velocity into a hydrogen particle to create a wormhole. Barry will have less than 2 minutes to change the past, or the wormhole will create a black hole that could destroy the world. Barry successfully travels back in time, but his future self motions him not to save their mother. Instead, Barry identifies himself and reassures Nora that he is safe in the future before she dies. Barry returns and stops Wells from returning to his time. Before Wells can kill Barry, Eddie shoots himself causing Wells, as he is reverted back into Eobard, to be erased from existence. The team is unable to prevent the black hole from being created, and Barry super speeds into it in an effort to stop it.
⇒ NEW SEASON Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie’s death.

When a meta-human named Atom Smasher attacks the city, Iris tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him protect the citizens of Central City. Meanwhile, Cisco helps Joe with his Meta Task Force
