The CW has released the synopsis for the upcoming episode of The Flash, called “The Man in the Yellow Suit” and for those who think Dr. Wells is under the hood, you’ve got another think coming.


BARRY COMES FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE MAN IN THE YELLOW SUIT/AMANDA PAYS RETURNS TO THE FLASH — Barry (Grant Gustin) finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis, the man in the yellow suit, a.k.a. Reverse Flash, who killed his mother. Barry is frustrated when the Reverse Flash escapes, but Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) come up with a plan to trap him. All they need is bait, so they turn to Dr. Tina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays) from Mercury Labs to help. Meanwhile, it’s Christmas at The West household and Iris (Candice Patton) is in full holiday cheer. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) gives her a surprising gift but also leaves her with a question that could change her life. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) joins the search for the man in yellow and ends up in the crossfire. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) finds Ronnie (Robbie Amell). Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Aaron Helbing (#109).

  1. My initial guess was the obvious, Dr. Wells.

    I think the Reverse Flash will be Eddie. My limited knowledge of Thawne Reverse Flash, was he wanted everything from Barry Allen Flash. So why not go back in time kill his mother, have his father thrown in jail for the murder and then take the love of his life.

  2. I thought it was flat out saying that Wells was the future version of Reverse Flash. They’ve already broached the time travel issue, so anything is possible.

  3. Can’t wait to see the next episode. Flash is the best superhero show on TV right now. It’s fun, upbeat, with good writing by a writing staff who obviously understand and like the character.

  4. Although not conclusive, the man in the suit in image of the Reverse Flash does not look like it’s Tom Cavanaugh…arms are to bulky nor does it look like his facial features. Looks more like the guy playing Eddie Thawne. Then again, could just be a stunt guy in the suit.
