“The Flash” has had successful run on TV, with two finished seasons and a third one going on. Are there any surprises left in the show and do creative juices still flow through it?

In the end of “The Flash” Season 2, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) went back in time to rescue his mother from the Reverse-Flash and in succeeding, he created a time ripple which will echo out through time and space, changing everyone’s fate. This is the beginning of the Flashpoint Paradox.

Comicbook share the producers view on the last few episodes and their answer to the fans’ dissatisfaction with the short terms in which the Flashpoint was ended. According to them, they had planned on making the story much longer, but the problem was that then, information became too deluded, they preferred to make a shorter, much more concentrated show, by adding a lot of effect in the first episode, thus kick starting a strong season.

IDigitalTimes give an insight on the events of “The Flash” Season 3 Episode 3. The new villain introduced in the series Magenta (Joey King) is a kid who lives in an abusive home. After realizing the powers of controlling metal, Magenta goes on a vengeful spree, which cannot be stopped even by Barry Allen. 

This ties to the second reveal Jesse (Violett Beane) has finally developed her speedster powers, which she received after exposure to dark matter. Her father doesn’t want her to be a speedster, but in the end, he is convinced, by her helping Barry take down Magenta.

Other points worth mentioning, shared by TV Line are that Harry realizes Barry has been time-traveling again, and it doesn’t even take him much time to figure it out. Julian (Tom Felton) keeps on being a world-class todger to Barry.

And the most-exciting of all, the possible reveal of Mirror master, when Clariss (Todd Lasance)
is shown to be brutally thrown around his cell by an invisible entity. 

"The Flash" Season 4 Episode 4, entitled "The New Rogues" airs on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
