Previous Post

the night barrys' mother was killed, both reverse flash and future flash went back in time.

later on we found out that reverse flash took the body of Wells
and that the future flash is the one who evacuated barry from his house.

the newspaper from 2024 shows future flash gone missing, so he didnt go back to his time.
any theories on what happend to future flash after that night?

There isn't enough data to go off  but on balance I don't think the battle with Reverse-Flash and the Crisis are linked, that isn't the impression I got. The future(?) Flash retreating as he did would suggest either a serious injury was inflicted or he simply HAD to be out of there. I was thinking of the possibility that the red skies and Crisis event might have been the result of some rupture to time, Reverse-Flash having done something to destroy history and cause a fault in time which was affecting 2024. But this doesn't seem to be the case so far.
Granted there are mysteries such as where Thawne's Gideon room came from, and the implication that he knows The Flash dissapears/dies in a Crisis thanks to the 2024 newspaper indicates that this particular event is a key part of the whole plot, but if we follw his own mutterings over "Centuries" and assume Thawne is from much further ahead in time than 2024 and in fact hails from the 25th century as per the comics then it does seem his story parallels those comics roots to some degree. In the comics his obsessive nature over The Flash grew to a point where he had tunnel-vision and could think of nothing else but  harranging Barry Allen, nothing else mattered to him.
The Flash would always die. Thawne is from the future and Barry's death is a matter of historical fact. So to come into superspeed and decide to go back in time it seems likely a specific reason is the cause, quite possibly Thawne's knowldge of the Speedforce... and Barry's link to it.
