When Barry was six, he begged Nora and Henry to take him to a skill exhibition in Midway City but on the way, they hit a flat bore.

Nora tended to his injuries and assured Barry that he had a good heart, which was worth much more than having firm legs. When Henry arrived at home, Nora told him that Barry won a fight. Henry praised their son and, after a austere glance from Nora, told him to not get into any more fights. [ 7 ]


late that night, on March 18, 2000, [ 3 ] versions of Barry Allen and Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash from the future traveled through meter, sped into the home, and began to fight, circling Nora and waking her husband and son. 11-year-old Barry and Nora began shouting for each early as the speedsters around them raced around the know board. Nora then watched in horror as future Barry grabbed his youthful self and ran out of the house, although unbeknown to her, her son had been taken to safety several blocks away. Enraged that his bane ruined his design, Eobard stabbed Nora in the heart with a tongue before fleeing the picture. Henry was late blamed for Nora ‘s death and sent to prison. [ 8 ] [ 9 ] In 2015, Barry was allowed a second prospect to travel back in time and prevent Nora ‘s murder. Despite arriving in 2000 and preparing to save her, Barry was warned by his future self to not interfere considering the damage it would cause to the timeline. however, this allowed Barry to have one last, heartfelt lecture with his beget before she died, confirming that he and Henry were dependable in the future and that they loved her. [ 10 ]

As a panicky Nora watched on, Barry ( while distillery disguised as the Flash ) assured her that she would be alright before grabbing Thawne and returning to his present. [ 11 ] [ 12 ] With Barry having successfully altered his mother ‘s fortune, Nora continued to live a felicitous life in a new timeline ( coined “ Flashpoint “ by Thawne ) with Barry and Henry with the latter never sent to prison.

Nora and Henry late asked Barry to move out as they were selling their dwelling, upon which Barry revealed that he had a date with Iris West, much to the surprise and gladden of Nora and Henry. After some time, however, Barry came to realize that Flashpoint ruined or worsened the lives of those around him despite ensuring his own happiness ( particularly after the death of Wally West/The Flash at the hands of Rival ). Realizing that he needed to undo his mistake, Barry met with Nora and Henry, knowing that it would be his last chance to talk to them but not theirs, scaring Nora slightly.
