It’s A New Reality. Two Flashes Are Better Than One Until One Forgets He’s The Flash.
Why would Barry Allen give up Flashpoint in the season 3 premiere, a world where both of his parents are alive, he can start fresh with his love Iris West and there are two Flashes to save Central City? Sure there are some troubling differences with Team Flash: Cisco is an arrogant billionaire who calls him “stringbean” and kicks him out his offices. Caitlin is a scientist but has no idea who Barry Allen is. And Joe West is a mess and not the father figure he’s known for most of his life. But it’s a chance at a normal life.

But Cisco is a rich jerk.
And Caitlin doesn’t know him either.
And there are worse things than that, according to harbinger of doom, Reverse Flash.
What could be worse than your friends not knowing you? How about when Barry starts forgetting his former life and his powers start to fade. Can he continue to live in this alternate universe or is it time to return to his own as The Flash?
