In “Flashback,” the next episode of “The Flash,” Barry travels back in time to learn more about the Speed Force from Reverse Flash, much to his team’s dismay. A new featurette video for the episode allows executive producers Todd and Aaron Helbing to explain in detail why that might not be such a great idea.
