Eddie Thawne is alive…Or is he? And How?
After months of speculation, fan favorite Rick Cosnett is set to return to The Flash, reprising his role as Eddie Thawne. There’s no word whether we’ll see Thawne from a different timeline with him very much alive—thanks to Flashpoint, or as a doppelganger from another earth as details surrounding his return have yet to be released. The actor himself announced his return to the show this morning via Twitter.
The last time we saw Eddie Thawne was in the Season One finale, where he took his own life in order to save the lives of those he loves. By taking his own life, with a bullet to the chest, Eddie was able to end his bloodline and wipe the Reverse Flash from existence, stopping Eobard Thawne before he could even be born. Thawne showed up later in Season Two when Barry (Grant Gustin), Cisco (Carlos Valdes), and Wells (Tom Cavanagh) returned to Earth-2 to try and stop Zoom (Teddy Sears).
THE FLASH returns TUESDAY, JANUARY 24TH at 8/7c on THE CW.
