"Live in GBS Studios from Central City it's the Midnight Circus! We're taking enemies of the state, prisoners of war, debtors and convicts galore, all going head to head in gladiatorial combat. Fifty will enter but only one will survive to be crowned our champion."
"It's go big or go home in a body bag."
Cat Grant and Digger Harkness[src]

Season One[]

Barry Allen is at the height of his powers and fame, firmly ensconced as Central City's favorite hero - but when being The Flash forces him to let Iris down one time too many, she decides to call it quits. Undeterred, Barry figures he can use the speed force to go back in time and set things right. But something goes wrong, Barry tumbles into a new dimension, finding himself in a small bedroom with Captain Cold, his powers gone. Cold tells Barry that he's an unwitting participant in a televised tournament, THE MIDNIGHT CIRCUS, which pits humans, superheroes and rogues against one another in life-or-death games of chance. Survive the competition and Barry earns his freedom, recreate the conditions of his original transformation, and return to his own timeline. But to do so, he'll have to rely solely on his wits. And if that wasn't hard enough, he soon finds himself facing his toughest opponent yet: Iris West.
