The Season 7 finale of The Flash starring Grant Gustin featured the return of this character.
During the Season 7 finale of The CW’s The Flash, titled “Heart of the Matter, Part 2,” multiple speedsters united together in a battle against August Heart AKA Godspeed (Karan Oberoi). As Godspeed prepares to defeat Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a surprising figure appears.
That surprising figure is none other than Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh). The duo worked together in a battle that’s eerily similar to Star Wars Lightsaber duels as Thawne stabs Godspeed. Thawne attempts to Kill Barry, only for the Scarlet Speedster to showcase his faster speed against him, much to his chagrin.
Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes were announced to officially part ways with The Flash with the seventh season. Although the two stars are no longer series regulars, showrunner Eric Wallace said that the door will remain open for the actors to make return appearances.

Here is the synopsis for season seven of The Flash:
“Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.”
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.
