‘The Flash’ 2×17 Promotional Photos: ‘Flash Back’

Perhaps The Flash’s visit to Supergirl and Earth-2 (airing Monday on CBS) are about to have a significant effect on the next episode of The Flash.

The CW has released promotional photos for episode 17 of The Flash season 2, which is titled “Flash Back,” which airs on March 29, which features the return of a few familiar faces from season one — including one that meant the world to us and his reappearance already has us in tears.

In the first look photos, we get a look at the returns of Eddie Thawne (precious baby!), Reverse Flash as Harrison Wells, and Hartley Rathaway as we travel back in time in “Flash Back.” Not to mention the season one Flash suit makes its return, as well as Caitlin’s lack of bangs (which we loved).

Here’s the synopsis:

A MOMENT IN TIME GETS BARRY ONE STEP CLOSER TO ZOOM; ANDY MIENTUS RETURNS AS HARTLEY RATHAWAY – After the shocking revelation that Zoom is Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), Barry (Grant Gustin) is more determined than ever to get back to Earth-2 to stop Zoom forever. Desperate to find a way to increase his speed, Barry decides to travel back in time and masquerade as his earlier self in order to get his arch-nemesis, Dr. Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), to teach him how to run faster. However, things don’t go as planned and Barry is stunned to face familiar foe Hartley Rathaway (guest star Andy Mientus), as well as old friend Eddie Thawne (guest star Rick Cosnett). Iris (Candice Patton) makes peace with her past in order to embrace her future.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
