ROAD TO HELL…
Indeed the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Barry Allen (aka The Flash) just wanted to save his mom, whose have been murdered when he was still a kid and his father was wrongly accused for the crime.
He is the fastest man alive and he’s able to travel through time, so the temptation of getting back to the past and saving his mom is too strong.
After all, saving his mom, avoiding that his dad would go to prison, all that is something positive, right? So, if he does it, nothing could come out wrong from that, right?
It’s sad and tragic, but some bad things happened for a reason.
Also, nobody is an island, and your own impact, or the lack of it, can affect too many people around you, since if you aren’t there to do what you did, nobody will do it, each decision is of each person, and nobody else.
ONLY ONE CUP PER CUSTOMER
It wasn’t a timeline aberration, Barry wasn’t correcting the timeline, for better or worse, his mom’s death was a fact in the original timeline, so changing that would provoke gigantic repercussions, not only to his own personal life, not only his closest friends and allies, but for the entire world, and millions of lives will be lost.
Millions of lives, innocent lives, for saving only one life, maybe the most important life in your existence, but still sadly and unfairly, only one life can’t justify millions of deaths.
Barry Allen must find a way to fix it and get back to the reality that he knew it before.
…the worse of all?
Time is like a cup, if you break it, never will be the same, maybe you’d be extremely lucky of fix it in many details, BUT…
…small fragments will be lost forever and the crack will be impossible of making up entirely, you haven’t a new cup, you can’t do a new cup, it’s the original cup, the only cup and it was broken, there isn’t a glue good enough to erase the marks of the fracture.
Villains are able to do terrible things…
…but ironically, heroes can do it worse.
