(Warning - if you don't want to know any plot details whatsoever for future episodes of The Flash, then SPOILERS are very much to be found below. It also might be worth avoiding TV, since everything you read below may well turn up in a teaser trailer in the near future...)

Now, when Eddie Thawne sacrificed his own life to (unsuccessfully) rid the timeline of his descendant Eobard, it seemed to be just about the most noble way to exit a superhero show possible. After all, not only did Eddie actively choose to kill himself for the greater good, he did so knowing full well that he was losing the love of his life in the process.

From the sounds of the latest synopsis to emerge for a future episode of The Flash, however...

It Sounds Like We're Definitely Going to Get to See Eddie Again

Though, admittedly, not necessarily in the 'alive and well and brought back to life' sort of way many fans were hoping for.

Instead, it seems that come March 29th's episode 'Flash Back', The Flash is going to be heading back in time, where he's going to run into none other than...Eddie Thawne. As the official synopsis for the episode puts it:

"A MOMENT IN TIME GETS BARRY ONE STEP CLOSER TO ZOOM; ANDY MIENTUS RETURNS AS HARTLEY RATHAWAY – After the shocking revelation that Zoom is Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), Barry (Grant Gustin) is more determined than ever to get back to Earth-2 to stop Zoom forever. Desperate to find a way to increase his speed, Barry decides to travel back in time and masquerade as his earlier self in order to get his arch-nemesis, Dr. Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), to teach him how to run faster. However, things don’t go as planned and Barry is stunned to face familiar foe Hartley Rathaway (guest star Andy Mientus), as well as old friend Eddie Thawne (guest star Rick Cosnett). Iris (Candice Patton) makes peace with her past in order to embrace her future."

Which not only means we're set to see Eddie ride out one last time, but we're also going to get another dose of evil Harrison Wells (always fun) and the Pied Piper.

Which...kind of just makes the wait till March 29 seems all the more painful.


What do you reckon, though?
