Happy Holidays, Flash Fans! Entertainment Weekly reported that Barry Allen will be encountering the Reverse-Flash in in the new year. Tom Cavanagh won’t be donning the yellow suit, though. Matt Letscher will be returning to The Flash as Barry’s nemesis, Eobard Thawne…
Here’s what executive producer Todd Helbing, who penned the episode featuring Letscher’s return with Aaron Helbing, would reveal: “His impossible return to Central City puts a member of the S.T.A.R. Labs team in unexpected danger, forcing Barry to make a life-changing decision.”
Letscher (Scandal, The Carrie Diaries) is slated to appear in episode 211, which is fittingly titled “The Reverse-Flash Returns.”
Given that Thawne was erased from time, it’s fair to assume his return will be connected to Earth-2.
