The Flash - Episode 2.11 - Matt Letscher to return as Reverse Flash

EW has learned exclusively that Matt Letscher will be returning to The Flash as Barry’s nemesis, Eobard Thawne, otherwise known as the Reverse-Flash.

A brief refresher from last season: Letscher’s Eobard Thawne traveled back in time and killed Barry’s (Grant Gustin) mother before getting trapped in that era. Eobard then absorbed Harrison Wells’ (Cavanagh) DNA to take on his persona, and trained Barry to be fast enough to tap into the Speed Force so he could return home. But his ancestor Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) killed himself, effectively erasing Eobard from the timeline. So, considering the original Reverse-Flash met his maker last season, we may be looking at a speedster from a different Earth.

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.”
