Nope, by all rights the ring and the costume should not be there. Everything that RF brought back with him should be erased.

However the loophole with this is that the time storm was contained and shutdown by Flash and Firestorm before any major revisions could be made, hence the ring and costume could still exist however they are temporal anomalies and should NOT exist.

Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if they did more harm then good by stopping the time storm. Rip Hunter may well decree that RF must be restored to heal the time line and the only way to do that is go back and stop Eddie from shooting himself to stop RF.

Best thing would be that Rip uses his powers to freeze RF as he is fighting Barry in the particle accelerator then freeze Eddie in time for a moment, relieve Eddie of his gun and then zap RF home.

The writers appear on the surface to have played fast and loose with time travel and paradoxes or they have yet to reveal their full plans.

It has always been a concern to me that everything in this series has been founded on a time paradox - Thawne's time-travelling and manipulation alterd time to create a manufactured timeline whih we have had since episode 1. Without that Particle Accelerator accident Thawne engineered just what was The Flash's origin originally...?
Which brings us to the ring... given Thawne was from Barry's future is it not possible, likely even, that the ring originally belonged to Barry Allen, the original Barry?
So what we are seeing unfold is a paradox. Its a shame really as I always liked the Idea Barry was clever enough as a Scientist to create his own Ring in the same way Stan Lee had Peter Parker Invent his web-shooters and fluid. It is possibly the one downside of the television format, that it is an ensemble cast and Barry therfoore lacks his independence and therefore the urge for self-sufficiency.
