Cisco Ramone will struggle to control his new found powers in The Flash season 2 premiere episode, as Harrison Wells has revealed that the young genius was indeed affected by the Star Labs particle accelerator explosion in the season 1 finale.
Although Barry Allen managed to reset the universe, Cisco was able to retain traces of another timeline, wherein he was killed by Wells. Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco spoke of his destiny in The Flash season 2. The actor said, "He has a future, that future is related to him being affected by [the] particle accelerator explosion."
Unlike Barry, who's transition to The Flash was smooth, Cisco would struggle with his new found powers, Valdes claimed. "It [ability to look into the other timeline] is something that Cisco has great difficulty coming in terms with.
"It is very interesting because Cisco is the ultimate fan boy, and he expresses this undying love for the heroes he works and that surrounds him. And now that he is faced with a similar fate he doesn't know how to handle it," he stressed.
Meanwhile, TV Guide has reported that Cisco would find himself in a parallel world when the show returns. "When the Atom Smasher crashes Central City's Flash Day celebration in episode 1, Cisco finds himself once again seeing into an alternate universe," the report said.
The official synopsis of the premiere episode of season 2 titled The Man Who Saved Central City reads:
Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie's death. Concerned about putting his friends in danger, Barry has pushed everyone away and has chosen to protect the city on his own. When a meta-human named Atom Smasher (guest star Adam Copeland) attacks the city, Iris (Candice Patton) tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him protect the citizens of Central City.
