Last season, Barry Allen, aka the Flash, used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother's life, and inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint. The phenomenon not only gave birth to the villainous God of Speed known as Savitar, but changed the lives of Caitlin Snow and Wally West forever. With the help of his adoptive father, Detective Joe West, his fiancee Iris West, and the others, Barry continues...
Last year, the S.T.A.R Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark matter storm that struck forensic scientist Barry Allen, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive. But Barry wasn't the only person who was given extraordinary abilities that night. The dark matter also created meta-human, many of whom have wreaked havoc on the city.
Barry faces the unknown, as he irrevocably alters the timeline by saving his mother from the clutches of the Reverse-Flash. The only question now, as he remains trapped in his own Flashpoint Paradox, is will he be able to find a way out?
Shortly after defeating the Thinker, Barry Allen/the Flash and his wife, Iris, were stunned by the arrival of their already grown, speedster daughter from the future, Nora. However, acclimating to their lives as parents won't be the only challenge they face, as season five pits Team Flash against Central City's latest scourge, the DC Super-Villain Cicada.
