As if the first season of The Flash couldn't be anymore fan friendly but Barry is going to be face-to-face with the man who killed his mother in the mid-season finale, 'The Man in the Yellow Suit,' on Tuesday night.
Presumably it's Reverse Flash, the long time nemesis from the comics, but his name was Eddie Thawne. The same guy who's Iris's boyfriend and partner to Joe West on the show. So if it's not Eddie then who is it? Not even leaked set photos gave away too much. We do know they'll be going head-to-head.
This early in the series it's doubtful we'll get any resolution about Barry's mom's murder or the identity of her killer no matter how much the folks at the CW tease us. It is amazing to see just how invested and respectful producers like Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns are to the history of the Scarlett Speedster and his fans. Midway through the first season we've already seen the Weather Wizard, Girder, Captain Cold, The Mist, a crossover with the (Green) Arrow. This is a feast for fans because the creative team behind the scenes are also fans and don't skimp on the action or the characters.
Tuesday night will be no different as not only will we finally see the Reverse Flash but we'll also see the return of Amanda Pays. She'll reprise her role of Tina McGee from the 1990 CBS series, The Flash, who starred John Wesley Shipp as the titular hero. Shipp now plays the wrongly convicted father of Barry on the CW show.
No doubt this episode will leave fans hungry for more. Check out the trailer for Tuesday's episode:
For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. Don't miss the mid-season finale of #TheFlash Tuesday at 8/7c!
