Tv Season Info

In Season 3, Barry (Grant Gustin) must deal with the consequences of his decision to interfere in the timeline and save his mother. The rise of a new metahuman who knows about the existence of "Flashpoint" leads to people gaining powers to become their alternate selves. Barry must come clean when self-proclaimed speed god Savitar threatens the life of Iris (Candice Patton). As Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) fears she will succumb to her Killer Frost urges and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) struggles to forgive Barry for the loss of his brother, the team begin to fall apart. With a newly powered Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) stepping up to help Barry and Julian (Tom Felton) and being brought into the fold to assist Caitlin, it becomes a race against the clock to stop the devastating future Barry has seen. Episode 8 is part of a crossover event with sister shows "Supergirl," "Arrow" and "Legends of Tomorrow." Episode 17 is a musical crossover with "Supergirl."

Critic Reviews for The Flash: Season 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (2)

The real changes here are more emotional than grandiose.

The Flash: The Complete Third Season is a return to greatness for one of the very best superhero shows on TV.

September 4, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Overall, we're off to a promising start to The Flash Season 3, even if the concept of flashpoint itself was a bit of a letdown. It was a good launching pad.

Watching the yellow blur saving the city is fresh, having not being given much of a chance to shine in the last season, it's brilliant to finally see Lonsdale get something to play with.

While in the comics, Barry's actions rewrote the whole world with some bizarre and disastrous consequences, here, things are far more subtle, and the focus stays on the people who bring us back week after week.

It's possible all this time-traveling and rewriting of history is beginning to wear thin, and even the writers can no longer keep it all straight.

Some great parts, but its essentially a clone of season 2, which was just a worse version of season 1.
