  • Summary

The season starts with Barry, who wakes up from a coma. He realizes that he has supernatural powers. He soon finds out that there are others with superpowers – this particular person was a product of the same test that it was administered to him. People get to know Barry as being a metahuman – he can replicate himself.

Then, we have Eddie and Iris, who are dating and hiding from Joe. Flash and S.T.A.R Labs are doing a lot of missions – they capture Kyle Nimbus, they stop a robbery, and find about a new meta-human, Tony. In order to defeat another metahuman, Fash, and Arrow come together as a team.

We also learn who kills Nora Allen – this character is way powerful than initially thought. Then, Captain Cold and Micky Rory return to town, planning on getting money. Captain Cold also wants to capture Flash, so he sets up a trap.

We’re also meeting a new nemesis, Rathaway, that turns out to be a threat for Wells and The Flash. We also get to see Reverse-Flash and Barry’s fight for good. Of course, the season ends with a cliffhanger – Wells presents to Barry a life-changing opportunity. Stein and Raymon eventually return to S.T.A.R Labs and start to help them.

  • Summary

Season 2 introduces a new character in a black suit called Zoom. Zoom is actually Jay Garrick, Caitlin’s love interest, and Barry’s mentor. He was also known as Hunter Zolomon in Earth-2 – he took a serum in hoping he would go fast, but that was not the case. He could, however, steal speed from another speedster, which means that Barry was an excellent target for him

Zoom messes up the timeline, so he gets in a fight with Time Wraiths. In the second season, we also get to see Earth 2, where we all meet the replicas of the main characters. Zoom wishes to go a lot more faster, but the serum he takes makes him sick. He tries to take the speed from another speedster in hopes that he would get better, so he tracks every movement of Barry. On Earth 2, we see Caitlin as Killer Frost, Cisco as Reverb, and Barry as a geek married to Iris.

Iris invited Wally to the West family. Barry saves Wally’s life after a complete disaster. However, Wally and Jesse get injured.

At the end of the season, we see Barry traveling back in time when his mother gets murdered. He is aware that he cannot mess with the timeline and history itself. However, he still stops Reverse Flash from killing his mom.

  • Summary

We’re getting The Flashpoint. Berry went back in the past and managed to mess with the timeline. He stopped the Reverse-Flash from killing his mother. By doing this, it made a series of changes. Cisco resented Barry for Dante’s death. Iris and Joe’s relationship gets worse after Iris finds out that Joe kept her mother’s situation a secret. We also learn that Caitlin turns into Killer Frost, and her doppelganger did on Earth 2.

Because of the Flashpoint, there was a loop created, which brought Savitar into existence. We learn that Savitar is the supervillain of this season. He is actually Barry’s time remanent. A few months in the future, he would kill Iris. We see how he gets his hands on the Philosopher’s stone and becomes even more powerful.

We see how Barry saves Iris after he finds out she would be killed by Savitar. However, we learn in the season finale that it wasn’t actually Barry who saved her, but H.R. Once again, we are left with a cliffhanger.

  • Summary

This season brings a new enemy for Barry Allen, and this time, it’s not a speedster. We get to know DeVoe, who thinks that its intelligence is due to a rapid progression in technology. He was the one to create metahumans, who – as he believes – will help him achieve his goals. We see Barry winning this fight by being a human with emotions and empathy.

Nora, Iris, and Barry’s daughter is the speedster that saved the Central City. She is from the future, and the city would be in ruin if it wasn’t for her. Barry and Iris also get married, but their road together does not start as it was supposed to be. We then learn that Barry gets sentences to life in prison.

Caitlin, on the other hand, realizes that her abilities were not stolen, but rooted inside of her. She turns to Killer Frost and finds it in the most unusual way – by looking in the rearview mirror of a bike. This means that her powers didn’t generate because of a particle explosion. Also, Caitlin is the only one who knows that her father died.

In this season, we see how Barry and Iris have lost their daughter, Nora. We meet these characters full of grief. Killer Frost almost dies, which changes her ties with Caitlin. Barry finds out that he will die, so he tried to fight this idea. Cecile finds a super evil metahuman. We also see that Iris is still stuck inside the Mirrorverse with Kamilla and Singh. Joe is put in the eyewitness security program, so he starts to think of a plan on how to save his family and friends.

Since Barry knows that he will soon die, he prepares the others – and Team Flash – to live without him. He tries to train Cisco for the fight with Crisis, but it is all ruined when Cisco tries to save Barry’s life. And when Crisis comes, the team tries to revive Barry. Luckily, they come up with a plan that saves the day.

We also see Kid Flash returning with a calm attitude and new things to show. Godspeed also returns, but a lot of things that changed. Barry is trying to get Rathway’s help, but he knows that he and Pied Piper are not on very good terms, and it’s all because of Crisis.
