The Flash Showrunner Explains Why Tom Cavanagh’s Back As Reverse-Flash

Last year, The Flash‘s 100th episode delivered a major twist in season 5’s ongoing story. In case you missed it, it turns out that Nora West-Allen, Barry and Iris’ daughter from the future, is secretly in league with her dad’s nemesis, Eobard Thawne Aka Reverse-Flash. What’s more, the speedster villain is once again wearing the face of Harrison Wells, as played by Flash regular Tom Cavanagh.
