Subj: Re: Why did the Flashpoint universe have metahumans at all? Shouldn't it have been the same as the original (i.e. pre-Eobard) timeline?

There are any number of ways they got their powers in Flashpoint. Perhaps Alchemy gave them those powers in that universe as he really seems to hate the Flash.
RF might have found and saved Alchemy from the collapsed Flashpoint timeline and this could explain how Alchemy knows and/or gives people their powers.
Why didn't the universe snap back to the original timeline? I think it was a result of the butterfly effect. By arriving in the past Barry could have caused some minor changes which escalated as time went on.
There is a slight hint as to why Cisco owns Star Labs instead of Harrison Wells. Cisco mentions that if you deal with a Speedster you get the hand through the chest.
I think Harrison got killed by a speedster and Cisco either bought it or inherited it.
