    you know... there is another thing...

    Eddie... I really believe in the theory that we have not seen the last of him...

    maybe somehow he returns, bringing eobard back to existence ?!

    Maybe this the first time Eobard meets Barry.
    In 2016, before he was stranded in time.

    I just went back and watched the season finale from season 1 and noticed the singularity opened up at the exact moment the reverse flash disappeared into nothing I wonder if that has anything to do with how he is going to be back this season.

    mabe someone already said it, but..... i would REALLY like too see Barry and Eobard fight together against Zoom!

    The "One time helping eachother out of desperation" way, bcus zoom is CLEARLY faster then Barry and Eobard.
    Still Barry is stronger then Eobard, since Eobard's tapping into the speedforce is limited. (need to be charged with tech)

    Zoom is waaaaay to fast for Barry just to beat him by some new trick or more speedforce.

    This is my speculation, hopes and opinion.

    cheers!

    I'm thinking Barry,Jay and Eobard defeat/kill Zoom. Remember they said THREE TIMES as fast as Barry.

    So, of I'm interpreting that correctly, they're setting in place a kind of River Song-but-just-evil scenario with Thawne; he ceases to exist the moment that Eddie is dead, but since his personal effects on the timeline are still real, he did exist until then, and as a time traveler, he can keep encountering Barry, but it'll be a younger Thawne almost each time.

    So, unlike the way they screwed up Merlin by trying to make him some wierd fusion of ally and antagonist but without taking into account his personal history with Oliver, Thawne may actually be the recurring archnemisis, with that ace in the whole element that since Barry already defeated him, he can never really stop him!

    It almost seems like a paradox. No matter how many times Barry may kill Thawne, he will never truly kill or destroy him. Unless, I guess, he goes to the future and kills him or stops him from being born, but even then, there's still that loose RF in between timelines.

    I thought the first encounter the Reverse Flash had with the Flash, was his conflict with Future Barry of the Original Timeline. He is from a future in which Earth 1 Harrison Wells never was murdered, a world in which Barry had a mother and got together with Iris.

    So I don't see how that jives with a pre-killing Harrison wells Reverse Flash running around in this new alternate timeline and fighting an alternate flash that he shouldn't encounter yet.

    Basically how can he travel from the original timeline future to the past of the Altered timeline, since he hasn't killed barry's mom yet therefore hasn't created the new timeline being presented.

    Maybe this is proof that the original earth 1 and its future still exists somewhere in the multiverse, that it wasn't erased when Reverse Flash went back in time and murdered Barrys mom and harrison wells.

    Lol, this is why I was leery when time travel was introduced to this show. I understand nothing about this RF. Oh well, I'll just sit back and watch and try not to think about it too much.

    That's what I do, take it with a grain of salt. There's already too much to explain. RF coming back is gonna ruffle feathers.

    The only way they can make sense of this is if Zoom went back in time and brought Reverse Flash to the current timeline to mess with Barry's psyche.

    Not really. They're going to say that this the the RF from another timeline, before he ever even decided to go back in time to kill Barry's mom. That's why he's confused about where he is upon coming out of the portal, and also why he doesn't look like Well.

    It's not rocket science.

    This is Thawne's Origin story. This isn't the same Thawne that we saw last season, this is him before all of that happened.

    I remember from an episode in which Barry was unconscious from being struck by lighting, and being taken care of by Thawne (disguised as Harrison). Thawne kept talking while Barry was in a coma, about his conflict with the older barry, the Flash from his timeline. No where in the past season did I get any vibe that Thawne started his vendetta/conflict with this newer version of the Flash. He even mentioned how he sees Barry as different from the older man he hates so much.

    Since we are getting an inhabitant from the original timeline (is its fate that of being erased?), I wonder if we could ever see original future flash cross over into the altered timeline.

    It could be him coming over but before he goes back into time to save his younger self (maybe he found out it would happen, which is one of the reasons he didn't want alt. Barry to save her in the past). Or it could be after that event, showing his world still exists.

    In either case he could have a discussion with Barry and the talk leads to Thawne. And in flashbacks we could see his first encounter with Thawne. Besides bringing Thawne "back", it would make more sense then showing Thawne vs Flash's conflict begin with him learning about the altered timeline Flash and fighting him.

    From the looks of it, I think they capture Thawne pretty easily, because there's a shot of him inside the "prison" and the gang talking to him. I think this is when we learn about his backstory and see flashbacks from his POV.

    If Team Arrow defeat Zoom this season, what will happen to Harrison Wells? Will he just go back to Earth 2 to live with his daughter Jessie? Or will he stick around on Earth 1? The thing is the world believes him dead on Earth 1, so he can't exactly go public. He has more of a life on Earth 2.

    But if he does go back, then do we have to contend with yet another Wells next season in order for Cavanagh to continue playing?

    Well, if they defeat Zoom, there's no real compelling reason to seal all the dimensional breaches. He could return to Earth-2, and be a periodic guest star. Alternatively, in the process of defeating Zoom they could end up sealing the breaches, with Wells stuck on our side. The initial plot of season 3 thus including "figure out a way to reopen access between the worlds".

    What if, for Season 3, Barry gets stuck on Earth 2 instead, almost as a reversal of Season 2? Then his only ally will be Harrison Wells, with everyone else there different in some form. Caitlin will actually be Killer Frost, Ronnie will be Deathstorm, and who knows what Cisco and the others will be.

    I was hoping that that would have been what happened this season.

    So Tom Cavanaugh will be back next season as Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash.

    Maybe there's some hope for this show now.

    Reverse Flash will definitely be the villain in Flashpoint Paradox.
