It’s never easy to say goodbye to beloved characters on television. So when there comes a chance for that character to return — whether it’s briefly or long-term — it’s enough to make you clutch your heart.
Such is the case with the announcement that Rick Cosnett, aka Eddie Thawne, will be returning to The Flash this season.

Now, there are no details as to how, why, or how long Cosnett will make his appearance, which doesn’t immediately point to Eddie coming back from the dead. But perhaps Flashpoint had something to do with this? Or perhaps this is Earth-2 Eddie Thawne?
Even the wording of Cosnett’s post — with no mention of Eddie — makes it suspicious. Perhaps he’ll be returning as someone else entirely, like an Earth-2 Thawne or perhaps even a version of Reverse Flash?
Guess we’ll just have to speculate until Cosnett makes his (re)appearance.
The Flash returns with new episodes next Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 8/7c on The CW.
