Looks like we finally got an answer to a big The Flash question: how does the Reverse-Flash come back to life? Total disintegration and removal from the timeline seems like an impossible barrier for some characters.
However, EW posted an article earlier today, which contained a quote from the executive producer of the show, Andrew Kreisberg. Speaking about the return of the Flash's enemy, Kreisberg stated:
"Time on our show does not unfold linearly…Sometimes you’ve seen events from one direction and then you start to see them from the other. This Reverse-Flash is not exactly the Reverse-Flash that we saw disintegrate at the end of the year. It’s a Reverse-Flash from an earlier timeline. It’s not the Earth-Two Reverse-Flash, it’s the Reverse-Flash. That is, hands down, one of our best episodes."
Is it possible that the Reverse-Flash in this season is the same one who killed Cisco? It's not hard to imagine, given that that was one of the earlier timelines The Flash dealt with in the first season. However, we won't know for certain until the show returns to television.
The Flash will return to TV on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
