I have lots of questions with The Flash Season 1. Can someone please help me understand the timeline of the first season?
This is what I understood. This might be totally wrong.
Eobard Thawne came from the future.
a. Did he come from 2024?
The Flash vanishes in crisis 2024.
b. Did he come to kill the Flash or his mother?
Thawne kills Barry's mother. Barry's father goes to prison and Barry Allen goes to live with Joe West.
- Thawne could not go back to his original timeline (because?). So he kills Harrison Wells and stays in the current timeline.
- Thawne knew how to create The Flash! He worked at S.T.A.R. labs and planned the explosion of the particle accelerator (How did Thawne know how to create The Flash?)
How was the _original_ Flash created or, if Thawne had not traveled back in time, then how would The Flash have been created?
- Thawne needed to create The Flash so that he could go back to his original timeline.
- Eddie Thawne was an ancestor of Eobard Thawne. Eddie kills himself to indirectly kill Eobard Thawne.
