SPOILER ALERT: Please stop reading if you do not want to read any potential spoilers concerning current and future episodes of [Arrow](series:720988) and The Flash!
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) believed he was the fastest man alive, but that changed when he went up against The Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh). Since his defeat, Barry has been training to increase his speed, so that he may once and for all put a stop to the man that killed his mother.
But Barry isn't the only one preparing for the next battle. Dr. Harrison Wells has been hard at work, speeding up his plan now that the tachyon prototype, which helped him retain his speed, is being used as an quantum splicer to keep Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) whole. But what could that plan be exactly?
In the preview for the next episode "Out of Time," Cisco (Carlos Valdes) will discover the truth that Wells is in fact the Reverse-Flash. With no time left, it appears that Wells will have to go rogue and target the ones that Barry cares for the most.
Thanks to some behind-the-scene images captured by Punkd Images, it appears that Wells will go after Iris West (Candice Patton). For those curious to know if it it's Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) in the yellow suit, the answer is no. Eddie can be seen getting disarmed by the Reverse-Flash.
Upon closer inspection, it appears that it is, in fact, Wells in the suit. Since they are not using a stunt double for the scene, it's safe to assume that by this point, it will be known that Wells is the Reverse-Flash.
As some fans may have theorized, Eddie Thawne sounds eerily familiar, very close to the name of Eobard Thawne, the identity of Professor Zoom from the comics. It has been widely speculated that Harrison Wells is nothing but a moniker taken up by the Reverse-Flash, with many believing that he is Eobard Thawne because he didn't kill Eddie in "The Man in the Yellow Suit." But that may not be case. Based on the above image, it is possible that the Reverse-Flash will kill Eddie.
Iris appeared calm in the first image, but in this one, she is clearly broken. Her face appears to show pain, and seeing as her boyfriend was at the scene, it is entirely possible that The Reverse-Flash killed Eddie. This possibility would also throw off fans who have suspected that Eddie would somehow, someway, end up becoming the Reverse-Flash. But for those that are still in doubt as to whether or not The Reverse-Flash would do the unthinkable, think again.
This photograph shows a bloody Eddie and a cold faced Wells, with his arm possibly going through Eddie's chest. Wells probably vibrated his hand at super-speed and scrambled Eddie's internal organs, something Professor Zoom is known for doing in the comics. While that sort of death would be very dark, considering The Flash's lighter tone, it would definitely paint Wells as a really dark villain.
This would also not be the first time that the producers of Arrow killed off a major character in the first season. Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donell) was a casualty from the earthquake that Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) unleashed to destroy The Glades.
But, would they really kill off Eddie? If they do, then what is the true identity of The Reverse-Flash if he is not Eobard Thawne? Well whatever happens, let's hope this waltz doesn't happen in super-speed!
[The Flash](series:1068303) returns with all new episodes on March 17, 2015 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
