EDITORIAL: CW's Reverse Flash Explained

EDITORIAL: CW's Reverse Flash Explained 


Harrison Wells aka The Reverse Flash
*Disclaimer…this will be long…but informative and will touch on nearly every aspect of the show to prove its point…please read it…and enjoy - Arrowverse*

To begin, I would like you all to do me a favor and pretend like you know nothing of Harrison Wells, if you have a conflicting theory, it may skew your belief to what seems to be quite clearly placed in this analysis. Clearly the Arrow/Flash writers may have some huge twist in store for us fans and Harrison Wells may not be The Reverse Flash, but as a fan of the comics, as well as the series, I will be taking the time to explain my very logical conclusion as to who he is, while also addressing and disproving some theories that I see floating around the web.

THEORY: Reverse Flashes? or Not?... Spoilers for S01E09

THEORIES: Reverse Flashes? or Not?... Spoilers for S01E09

If your reading this, I would hope your looking for further explanation as to how there were two Reverse Flashes at once, the man in the containment unit and Dr. Wells...or, I think it's safe to call him...Eobard. 



When initially glossing this over there are 3 "quick theories" that may pop into your heads.

1) Wells lent his speed... yes, it is quite possible that he lent his speed to someone else, as speedsters do...but it would seem that the man in the yellow suit had a lot of control for someone who merely was lent speed
Verdict : NO

2) It's Wells from a different part of time ... yes its quite possible... especially if it is a younger Wells, therefore beating himself up like we saw wouldn't effect his younger self...but there are parts that don't seem to line up with me...
YES ... if it was younger Wells the line "we finally meet Doctor Wells" makes a little more sense
YES... Maybe it was a backhanded comment and the two are working together...and thats how our Wells' got the tachyon device at the end of the episode
YES...The forcefield could be fluctuating due to two versions of Wells being in the same occupied space
Verdict : COULD BE and I wouldn't mind...but seems redundant

3) Eobard was captured and Wells is Zolomon ... again this ONLY works if they are working together and have the same exact costume ... and why would Wells replicate the voice at the end had it not been him? There is no reason... I have said it before and I shall again...

I think seeing Hunter Zolomon on this show is highly unlikely given the circumstances. Zolomon is PreNew 52 Wally West's Reverse Flash, and it has been confirmed that the take we will be getting is more of a post New 52 Wally. Therefore, rather than putting Zolomon to waste, or using him for no reason, the writers took some of his character traits and divided them among two likely candidates, Wells and Eddie, to create a better red herring for the fans. 
Verdict : NO

Conclusion: 
Eddie = Malcolm Thawne aka Cobalt Blue, BUT with some Zolomon traits...rather than being a janitor at the station...he is the top cop...like Zolomon was...among other things

Wells = Eobard Thawne aka Professor Zoom, BUT with some Zolomon traits...being confined to a wheelchair, the time when he snapped his fingers (Zolomon fans will get this)...among other things 


*UPDATE...just double checked Eobard's power set to update myself...I know his powers changed a little during Rebirth...but this is much simpler than my theory (although my theory plays into it)***



My Theory: "But were there two"

Scene Analysis: 
The scene opens with them (Cisco, Cate, Wells, Joe, Eddie and Swat Team) watching a security camera feed of this place where Cisco has set up a force field to stop the Reverse Flash...then suddenly...on the camera...he is there...and then he is trapped. Next scene, all but Cisco and Cate go to the room, with Cisco and Cate monitoring from the control lab...Reverse Flash doesn't speak...and then Joe steps up to ask him a question...he ignores Joe and turns to Wells and speaks ONLY to Wells... Then Cisco realizes there is an issue with the forcefield... some fluctuation...it isn't going to hold. After this, Wells is "pulled" from is chair and beaten to a pulp by this so called Reverse Flash...but ALL in real time...no slo-mo like when Barry is running at top speed.Joe hits the generator keeping the field up to "save" Wells, and Reverse Flash escapes. Reverse Flash then kills all of Eddies men...but not Eddie...and then stares Eddie down...Why doesn't he kill Eddie? Because if Eddie dies...his ancestor...there is no Reverse Flash...No Wells...Then he speeds off and a battle ensues.

This throws slight caution to the Ra's killed Sara theory...but to see who has/technically has been limited from that list of possible killers click here. However this wouldn't be the first time this has happened...the whole "find my wife's killer" when it was the husband who killed her is used all the time in crime shows.

FLASH NEWS: EXTENDED PROMO + Stills + Details + Synopsis for S01E09 "Man In the Yellow Suit"



Way I see it there is only a few ways a Reverse Flash plays out especially after the screen-grabs we saw yesterday...

1) 2 Reverse Flashes ... One is a third party Wells is the other, and Eddie is Malcolm Thawne

2) 1 Reverse Flash (a third party) , Wells is _____, and Eddie is Malcolm Thawne

For those saying "its future Eddie" or "future Barry"...the Flash is pretty true to the comics in that regard...so Reverse Flash won't be Barry...nor would they change the fact that Reverse Flash is from the far future...so unless future Eddie is 400...

On top of that...the promo image released after the pilot still has a different costume than the one we see here...the costume is the same as the one Flash uses now...but in yellow...this is not the real reverse Flash...there is no way he uses the same costume that the Flash uses as a beta if he is from the future.

Still fits with my Reverse Flash "Beta" and Reverse Flash Theory...so I'm down with it....click here to read it.
