Quote:And I'm going under the assumption B is true as it works best with what the show has shown us so far. Gideon for example still had records of 2024 Barry's timeline despite Reverse Flash killing Nora. That timeline presumably wasn't erased...it's out there somewhere in the multiverse.
Right. That 'original' timeline rolled on unchanged.
Quote:With that being the case you can interact with your past/future/alternate selves all you want.
Indeed you can, but never the same you in your own timeline. You're always popping up in a divergent reality, or a divergent you is popping up in yours.
Quote:Ah now I think I get what you meant which I didn't in the first post...there should have been another Barry in the flashpoint timeline? I can concede that point. This show did that annoying thing shows like Fringe did (which is where I think this show steals half their plots from truth be told)...the timeline just readjusts around the time traveler instead of the time traveler having a double that actually went through the experiences of that timeline. Yeah I hate that too. My point was that there is no rules in place that would keep Barry from meeting a double as he's done it before.
Right. What happened to that other Barry?
Quote:Rusty Venture had the right idea when he tried to do it on Venture Bros...bash your doubles brains in and steal his life.
It's quick...it's clean...and it would be the ONLY way for Barry to get that life he wants. Although, his original self does have that life.
