The Flash Tom Cavanaugh IS Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash - Part 1

Eobard didn't take Harrison Wells identity until after he killed Barry's mom. If Eobard is going to be the villain of season 3 then he is probably going to be played by Matt Letscher.
 
Yeah, if/when we see Wells next season, it will be the real Earth 1 Harrison Wells, which is funny because it basically means Cavanaugh is playing a third version of him.

Let's be real here...


S2 proved that CW Flash is now more about 'fan service' than making sense.


Cavanaugh as Thawne was the more popular version. You can bet if RF is back as the villain, Tom will play him.

And this will keep him on the cast.
 
They already have a way of keeping Tom Cavanaugh on the cast. If Barry prevented Eobard from killing his mom then Eobard can't escape and kill Harrison Wells and take his identity so he can get the particle accelerator made so Barry can get his speed sooner than in his original timeline. With season 3 possibly adapting flashpoint paradox, maybe instead of using Captain Atom as the bomb that destroys the world it will be Harrison's particle accelerator.
 
We don't need another vanilla good version of Harrison Wells so soon after Harry though.
It would be too similar to Harry.

And it's doubtful the Flashpoint changes will stick beyond an episode or two, otherwise all the other shows would be affected
 
Even if Flashpoint only stays for two episodes and it goes back to the way it was before Barry saved his mom, Cavanaugh still wouldn't be playing Reverse Flash. Eddie eliminated Cavanaugh Reverse Flash when he committed suicide.

Are you kidding me... That makes no sense. Why would Eobard Thawne need to remain in Harrison's body for?. He already showed up early this season too..

Yea I think that might be a possibility. This also sets up an arrival of a new villain like last season's wormhole caused the arrival of Zoom.
 
What are Harrison and Jesse going to do with their lives back on Earth 2 now?

And if Barry has altered the past, doesn't that mean that they have also possibly never met him? Which also means that Harrison might still be the distant father and not a changed man after having encountered Barry. And Jesse might be different too.
 
I think them being on Earth-2 now will keep them from being affected by the time shift. Unless it crosses into their universe. They'll remember everything. Sisco, Joe, etc. won't.
 
Well maybe they'll be protected, but aren't their histories already rewritten though? Is changing time something that rips through the entire multiverse? If some of the events of season 2 never happened, then it also wouldn't have happened for them.

Let's say, for argument's sake, Barry accidentally erased himself from existence, or never became the Flash. That means all their encounters with him won't have occurred.
 
I wonder how Well's will explain Zoom's disappearance to the people of Earth 2, I doubt he'd tell them the whole truth.
 



Matt Letscher isn't as evil incarnate as Tom Cavanaugh played him in season one. But he definitely makes for a compelling interoperation of Eobard Thawne that's similar to comics.


 
As much as I enjoy watching Cavanaugh onscreen, I definately prefer him as Wells over Reverse Flash Wells. Letscher is so much Carmine Infantino's Reverse Flash come to life its unreal.
 
Letscher knocked it out of the park in Flashpoint, loved the scenes with him and Barry and can't wait to see him again.

Side-note, he totally should've kept the beard.
 
oh I like Letscher, like I said he definitely more like the comic version of Thawne. Both in appearance and persona.

Cavanaugh just delivered a malicious and villainous side that was cold and calculating with a bit of shakespearean flare.

His beard disappearing is actually super significant. It means that at some point during the trip he disappeared through time to do more than just kill Barry's mom before he dropped Barry back off in the present.

Whatever timeline Barry is in now is almost certainly the most ideal timeline for Thawne
 
We ought to really have a separate thread for Matt Letscher as Eobard Thawne/ Reverse Flash.

I agree. The old thread was fine when the Reverse Flash were just an odd guest appearance in s2, but since he's going to be played regularly by Lescher now this season?
 
Can we have the name of this thread changed?

Cavanagh has spent more time over 3 seasons playing other characters than Eobard Thawne. Also Matt Letcscher is really Eobard Thawne/ Reverse Flash.

This could be the Tom Cavanagh is Harrison Wells/ Harry Wells/ HR Wells thread.

Also, his name is Cavanagh, not Cavanaugh.
 
But not Tom Cavanaugh, because his name is Cavanagh.
