This week’s episode of The Flash is going to be a big one, as it looks set to deal with the origin story of the Reverse-Flash, a character who was wiped from history the last time we saw him in the season one finale. If that sounds confusing, don’t worry, as time travel is something which the show has so far done an excellent job of making accessible to viewers.
For more details about what to expect from this episode of The Flash – rather appropriately titled “The Reverse-Flash Returns” – here’s the official synopsis:
When Cisco (Carlos Valdes) gets a vibe of Eobard Thawne (guest star Matthew Letscher), Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team don’t believe it. But, after an attack at Mercury Labs, Christina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays) confirms that the Reverse Flash is back. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) and Francine (guest star Vanessa A. Williams) share a nice moment that brings Iris closer to her brother, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale). Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
While it looks as if this is going to be a one off appearance from the Reverse-Flash, here’s hoping it sets the stage for him to return down the line. I think we can all agree that the character is too great to not receive more screentime, right?
Regardless, it’s going to be a lot of fun seeing how this episode of The Flash plays out when it airs tomorrow.
