The next new episode of “The Flash” may be a month away, but at least the CW has released a trailer packed with enough reveals to hold fans over until Barry Allen’s return. The promo depicts a meeting between Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) — one that ends with the S.T.A.R. Labs head vacating his wheelchair. Flashes of other footage reveal that Cisco (Carlos Valdes) will stumble across Well’s yellow suit and confront his mentor with the truth about the murder of Barry’s mother.
Cavanagh previously talked to CBR about his dual role as both Harrison Wells and the Reverse-Flash. “What is Harrison’s persona to the Reverse-Flash? Will these good things keep happening? It gets a little complicated, and I think that’s good,” said Cavanagh. “I think a lot of the speculation has been, what I’ve encountered in social media, ‘Is he good or bad?’ I understand that, but honestly, in this iteration, it isn’t that simple. It can’t be that simple. You want Barry to succeed, then you can’t just paint Reverse-Flash as bad, because Harrison and Reverse-Flash are responsible for helping Barry achieve his potential. And the reason that happens is, that helps Reverse-Flash achieve his potential. Eggs get broken along the way, certainly that’s bad, but at the same time, there’s complications to it. How do you sustain the Harrison Wells persona as the Reverse-Flash persona gets unveiled further? I think that’s interesting. Does he just disappear? Well, no, he doesn’t — why doesn’t he? That’s all tied in, organically so.”
You can check out the trailer below. “The Flash” returns to the CW on March 17.
