That's right [The Flash](series:1068303) fans, Harrison Wells is your Reverse-Flash! During the CW's panel at the TCA, Tom Cavanagh, who plays Wells, confirmed what everyone had already been speculating.

“He’s the man in the yellow suit. Yes, I am Reverse Flash.”

As seen in the series premiere, the Reverse-Flash murdered Barry Allen's mother when he was young, so why has Harrison done everything he can to both create the Flash and shape him into his nemesis? We may get a few more pieces of the puzzle during the show's 17th episode, which will act as a flashback episode, taking us back to the night Barry's mother was killed; but this time from the Revere-Flash's point of view.

But what's strange to note is that Andrew Kreisberg, one of the developers and producers of the show, said we'd specifically be seeing it from the Reverse-Flash's POV, not Wells'.

“I didn’t say it was from Wells’ point of view, I said it was from the Reverse Flash’s point of view.”

What he meant by that, I'm not sure. But it might mean that there's another Reverse-Flash! Many suspected that Eddie Thawne was the man in the yellow suit, because his name is strikingly similar to that of the of the comic book characters alter-ego, Eobard Thawne.

“His name is not an accident,”

Kreisberg said:

“Eddie’s connection to the Reverse Flash lore is going to pay off big time in the back half of the year.”

Another interesting thing to note is that Tom Cavanagh said that there is only one Reverse-Flash. And as it was confirmed at TCA, that's Wells. This sparks some crazy theories, like if Wells is possibly an older version of Eddie. Or if Eddie is the man in the suit, and Wells is the mastermind behind it all; in the same sort of way the Mandarin/Killian relationship was handled in Iron Man 3. Though I hope not, as that move was a big failure on Marvel's part.

While everything is a bit confusing now, everything should (hopefully) make sense once the 17th episode of The Flash airs. Until then, we'll all just have to keep thinking up crazy theories!


Are you glad that Harrison Wells is the Reverse-Flash?
