The Flash: Wells IS Reverse Flash... But is He the Only One?

at .

During a panel discussion at the TCAs today, Tom Cavanaugh, who plays Harrison Wells confirmed, "[Wells] is the man in the yellow suit."

However, when asked, Andrew Kreisberg skirted the question, saying only, "I think he's doing a great job," when asked if Wells is the Reverse Flash.

The big question remains: Is Wells the only Reverse Flash?

We've sure done our fair share of speculating on TV Fanatic as to whether Eddie Thawne might be the Reverse Flash, since a fellow in the comics, Edobard Thawne, was the same character.

"His name is not an accident," Kreisberg said today. "Eddie's connection to the Reverse Flash lore is going to pay off big time in the back half of the year."

Other people on the panel included Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Heat Wave), Robbie Amell (Firestorm) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein, the other half of Firestorm).

Miller joked, "I wasn't sitting back at home saying, 'Aww... I wanna do The Flash,'" while of his role as Heat Wave Purcell said, ""He allows me to be big and bold and explosive, things I really appreciate."

While I didn't pick up much of note off the wire from Amell and Garber, the latter did pipe up to say Amell's fiance, Italia Ricci, is even prettier than Robbie. It sounds like good times were had by all.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.


It doesn't matter if you're the slowest kid in gym class or the fastest man alive, every one of us is running. Being alive means running. Running from something, running to something or someone. And no matter how fast you are, there are some things you can't outrun. Some things always catch up with you.
