"The Flash" is diving into the "Flashpoint" timeline at the beginning of season 3, but series star Grant Gustin revealed that his character Barry won't be in that timeline until the very end of the installment.

"[Season 3] is pretty 'Flashpoint' focused right now, which I think we are going to see the repercussions coming out of 'Flashpoint,'" Gustin told Kevin Smith during an interview for IMDb at last month's San Diego Comic-Con. "There will be ramifications all season long from 'Flashpoint.'"

"[However,] I think we can state... 'Flashpoint' does not last all season long," the 26-year-old actor said, but there are permanent ramifications."

During the show's panel at Comic-Con, Gustin revealed that when season 3 starts, three months have already passed since Barry landed in the "Flashpoint" timeline.

"When we pick up Flashpoint he's been in this new timeline for a few months and he's in a complete state of bliss that both of his parents are alive," Gustin told E! News. "This guy [Keiynan Lonsdale's Wally is] running around as Kid Flash, he doesn't know it's Wally at this point, but he's completely fine to take a backseat and let there be another Flash and just enjoy his family. So he's not really coping at all -- he's in denial."

But when exactly will Barry realize that huge things have changed and that he needs to fix the timeline?

In last week's Spoiler Room of Entertainment Weekly, the news outlet revealed that although Barry is enjoying spending some quality time with both of his parents, it won't be long before he faces the consequences of tampering the timeline.

"He's starting to have new memories of graduating high school and college, memories he never had with his parents, but those memories are replacing other things from the other timeline," Gustin said.

It remains to be seen how Barry could actually correct what he has done, but based on Matt Letscher's interview with TVLine, it seems that Eobard Thawne, a.k.a. the Reverse-Flash, will have a big role in undoing Barry's timeline-tampering decision at the end of the season 2 finale.

"I can say that he's definitely central to the overall problem, and that Barry needs him," Letscher said when asked about his character's role in season 3.

"The Flash" season 3 premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
