When The Lightning As Season 8 resumes after a three-month hiatus, there’s more to remember than the fact that the CW series is moving into a new night (Wednesdays at 8/7c) for the first time ever.
Because after watching the sixth episode of this season – and being completely confused by it for the first five minutes or so – I think it would be wise to share a little pro tip before you watch it for yourself. (But then again, I’m an “dude” and your memory may be sharper than mine!)
When we last tuned in The Lightningwith which the “five-part Armageddon” arc was closed Barry & Co. celebrate a big winafter restoring the timeline that Reverse-Flash was messing around with to make him the hero of Central City in 2031. Episode 5’s “Stinger” included a framed photo on the wall of the CCPD that changed to reveal Bart and Nora in the background of a December 31, 2014 group photo.
What you need to know when starting Episode 6titled “Impulsive Excessive Disorder” (heh, pun) is that It actually picks up where season 7 left off, with Barry and Iris’ vow renewal. We get a little more of the après ceremony before Bart and Nora return to their home in 2049.
Well, here are things could get confusing because eight very It was mentioned long months ago The Lightning that “Uncle Jay” Garrick was dead in 2049, killed by Godspeed while Bart looked on. Godspeed thus became Bart’s own nemesis a la his father and Reverse-Flash. This tragic event from Bart’s past – as well as the fact that Jay killed Speed Force Nora doppelganger Dr. Joan Williams – plays a big part in Wednesday night’s 2049 scenes, so it helps not to sit down for a repeat of the season 7 finale to have those facts freshly loaded in your noggin.
So again, Jay Garrick lives in the present (and actually helped Team Flash be the Godspeed Army in the Season 7 finale), but he died in 2049.
* Iris didn’t start dating Detective Eddie Thawne until after Barry Allen ended up in a coma following a particle accelerator explosion.
* Although Cecile Horton was a prosecutor in Central City, she only appeared on screens late in Season 1.
And a fun fact:
* Keep an eye out for a character that has just been introduced Legends of Tomorrow!
