Baby John is the same age as Baby Sara
Baby John’s age has been a disputed question in the fandom ever since we saw the picture of Diggle with his son.
Admitedly, the actor looks older than Baby Sara, who would now be two.
However, I know a lot of really tall 2 year olds and John Diggle is the boy’s father. Genetics is a thing. So, I always assumed John and Sara were the same age.
However, many argue they are not. If John is older then Flashpoint effected a lot more than just the baby switch. It means events surrounding Baby Sara’s birth did not occur. Say, for example, THIS:
So… I decided to go right to the source and ask the man himself. Marc was very kind and answered me.
So, Diggle and Lyla had a baby boy in 3x01. Not a baby girl. Andrew Diggle threatened Lyla and John’s lives, not Lyla and Sara’s. And so on. Simply exchange Sara for John in any given storyline, but the storylines remain the same. This means that Flashpoint didn’t undo entire events on Arrow.
Now… I’m not saying I agree with the switch. I do not. I am extremely pissed off at Barry about it. Nor does this mitigate what Barry has done. However, I wanted to get clarification on this point and Marc was kind enough to provide it. So I hope this alleviates some confusion.
