Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Teases The Return Of Classic Villain

Who's coming back?

DC FanDome Grant Gustin The Flash Arrowverse

The latest episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash teased that a classic villain is returning to the show to cause havoc for Barry Allen again.

The Flash has had his fair share of villains over the past six seasons – but it seems like one of his biggest foes is returning in season 7. In a previous episode, Team Flash were devastated by the death of one of their own, Nash Wells. But it seems like his exit could be setting the stage for another villain to cause trouble in Central City for Grant Gustin’s Scarlet Speedster. In the most recent episode, a flashback saw the Reverse Flash murder Dr. Harrison Wells and bury his body – obviously so he could take his place.

But moments later, The Flash showed off a bunch of particles reforming on top of that grave into the shape of Dr. Harrison Wells. The question here is whether it’s actually the old version of Wells who could fill the void left by Nash, or whether it is actually Eobard Thawne. Showrunner Eric Wallace did previously tease that a major villain would make a return in season 7… Either way, Grant Gustin’s hero is in for a confusing time in the near future.

What do you make of the idea that Reverse Flash will return? What do you think he has in store for Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen this time around? Sound-off in the comments below!

Here is the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:

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.

The Flash will return March 3, 2021 on The CW. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
