THE FLASH Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg Talks Alternate timelines


The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed that the entire first season of the show has been an alternate timeline because of the manipulation of Tom Cavanagh‘s Harrison Wells. So the question is, will we ever see the original timeline or are we now forever stuck in the alternate timeline?

Warning for spoilers:


Eobard Thawne stated in the last episodes that he went back in time and hijacked Well’s life, that way he can create the particle accelerator and create The Flash in order to head back to his actual time. Well given that in the season finale, Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) sacrifices himself, which means Eobard Thawne never existed. Does that mean the timeline is reset now?

Here’s what kreisberg had to say:

“Part of the fun of The Flash is when you have people dabbling in sci-fi physics, they’re significantly altering the world. We established in the finale that the entire series of The Flash is, in itself, an alternate timeline that’s been skewed from the real one. Wells setting off the accelerator created all the metahumans, and the results of the singularity will also have long-term effects.”

Both Matt Letscher (Eobard Thawne) and Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells) are set to return in the second season, but no confirmation if wells will be playing the actual Harrison Wells, or the evil Eobard Thawne version of wells.
