Just when you thought we’d be through with him for good, Harrison Wells comes back for Season 2 of The Flash. Honestly, did you truly believe he wasn’t coming back? Of course you didn’t because we already knew that actor Tom Cavanagh was coming back.
The first season finale open up quite a lot of canned worms when they introduced time travel, alternative timelines, and multiple universes. If this wasn’t a regular thing for the character himself, I’d say this was a palatable version of Sliders for the current generation.
“Harrison Wells will be back, but he’s going to be a very different Harrison Wells than we’ve seen before,” executive producer Gabrielle Stanton tells TV Line. “We’ve got other worlds. We’ve got other timelines. All I’m going to say is he’s from one of those places.”
I wonder what role would he play in Flash’s life this time around. Eobard Thawne as Dr. Wells was a strong role model and mentor for Barry, Caitlyn and Cisco. Will this version be just as passionate about furthering Barry’s potential as his alternative predecessor?
The Flash returns October 6, 2015 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
