The news comes days after it was reported that actor Robbie Amell will be returning to the TV series as Firestorm aka Ronnie Raymond, Caitlin Snow’s (played by Danielle Nicole Panabaker) deceased lover.
Eddie Thawne, who is Iris West’s (played by Candice Patton) love interest in season 1, sacrificed him own life to defeat his deplorable descendant, Reverse Flash – Eobard Thawne aka Harrison Wells (played by Tom Cavanagh).
No further details have been made yet, but we think that it’ll be interesting to see how Cosnett’s role will affect The Flash aka Barry Allen’s relationship with West. Just in case you forgot, Thawne tried to propose to West before he died.
Actually, Cosnett already hinted his return in an interview with Comic Book last year. He said, “Definitely…definitely. I can’t say exactly where, but there is definitely a big chance that I could be in this new timeline, you’ll have to wait and see,” he said.
Yay or nay to Eddie Thawne’s return? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below 🙂
The 3rd season of “The Flash” will resume on 24th January.
