Flash Eddie Returns Spoilers

Flash Vet Teases (Improbable) Return: 'Now I Can Say It: I'm Coming Back'

The latter’s brutal death at the hands of Savitar may not be the only roadblock facing The Flash‘s Barry and Iris.

On Monday morning, Rick Cosnett revealed on social media that he was heading back to the hit CW series, saying, “Hate to tease you but now I can say it: I’m coming back on #TheFlash.” The news comes just days after word broke that Robbie Amell was staging a similarly unexpected comeback, as dearly departed Ronnie.

After exiting The Flash in the Season 1 finale — when CCPD Detective Eddie Thawne  sacrificed his life to keep his deplorable descendant Eobard from ever existing — Cosnett reprised his role midway through Season 2, when Barry traveled back in time to consult with “Dr. Wells” aka the aforementioned Eobard Thawne. There, he surreptitiously coaxed Eddie into recording a “goodbye” video for a still-in-mourning Iris.

Since then, Cosnett has guested on Castle and recurred on Quantico.

No details have yet been made available about the when, why, how or for how long of Cosnett’s encore.

The Flash resumes Season 3 on Tuesday, Jan. 24, where it will now lead into Legends of Tomorrow. How do you think Eddie will resurface?

  1. I knew it woudl happen!. UNntil you see a body never assume. Even if you see a body, never assume!
    Wally and Iris needed an obstacle .. here it is.

  2. pablo says:

    We all knew he was coming… cause Eabord is still alive and kicking…

    Anyway Rick seems to be the new Sean Bean. His characters most of the time dies…

    • wgsecretary says:

      It might not necessarily be Eddie from Earth 1. Plus. we don’t know for sure what changed in relation to Eddie due to Flash Point. The possibilities are practically limitless.

  3. Btm says:

    Earth 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…..2382, 2383, 2384…

  4. aplwrites says:

    The “Arrowverse” is starting to be more and more like the comics. No one ever really dies.

  5. Ian says:

    I’ll be so disappointed if it’s just an episode.

  6. keenen says:

    Is this supposed to be a big surprise or shock? My question is why? He was so boring I wouldn’t even know he was gone except that people have to keep mentioning it..

    • LK says:

      I agree… he never seemed to belong and he had no chemistry with Iris… Unless he winds up being the villain i see no reason for him to return.

    • BlittleU says:

      Yes, Eddie was pretty but an absolute snooze. Well, at least he’s not another speedster.

      • Lusa says:

        Lol!! Come one! I’m sure they’ll make him a speedster when he comes back. It would be way too much trouble for the writers to think of anyone else. They might actually have to work late one day to think of something besides “he’s a speedsters, and he runs faster then Barry!!”

  7. clintbrew says:

    he gonna be the flash from earth 19 acelerated man if not it ronnie raymond

  8. Dominique says:

    yayy! i don’t know in what form he’ll come back, but i’ve always liked eddie, so i’m excited about this! if this is the same episode as ronnie’s return, it might be time travel of flashback again, but i’m hoping both turn out to still be alive.

  9. BJ says:

    Is he going to finally come out of the closet??

  10. "A" says:

    Carina MacKenzie of “The Originals” ( and TVD ) has just joined the writing team of “The Flash”.

  11. Luffy says:

    I have a feeling Barry is making another trip back in time. Screwing things up once again.

  12. Chloe says:

    Eww he’s probably a really nice actor, but his character was a snooze. Sooo boring. Not to mention he didn’t really have chemistry with Iris. Also, this better not turn into a love triangle!

  13. Katie says:

    Completely mystified by the Eddie-hate. Don’t understand at all how anyone could hate him. I’m so excited about his return, even if it’s only for one episode.

  14. Priscilla says:

    I’m glad that he is come back , him and Iris had so much more chemistry than Barry and Iris

  15. Partisan says:

    Between this and the whole flashpoint thing they have essentially rendered the entirety of season 1 irrelevant. The incredible moment where Barry makes the decision to let his mother die rather than disrupt the entire timeline? Yeah forget that. The courageous sacrifice of Eddie to save Iris and the world from reverse flash? Never mind.
    Honestly I love this show but this season has tested that. I never liked hitting the reset button (it’s usually lazy writing) and this has me watching with a frown instead of a smile.

  16. Butch says:

    Don’t get all the hate for bringing back characters whether its Eddie, Ronnie, or Laurel. The show introduced the multiverse so there will always be multiple versions of the characters. Why do people angry because they felt bad that a character died and now they are back ? Everyone coming back will most likely only be in one episode no matter how they explain it. This is fantasy. If it produces a good hour of television with a good story who cares? Comment on the episodes after they air if you don’t like them. If you want to complain about the Flash how about why in every year so far the major villain is a speedster? Also why do we need so many speedster heroes? We now have Barry, Wally, Jay, and Jessie. We are also getting Black Flash later this season as Grim Reaper speedster. Plus Reverse Flash is on Legends of Tomorrow. Barry doesn’t seem unique anymore.

    • Katie1227 says:

      It’s not like Barry was ‘unique’ in the comics, the speedsters family is a pretty big deal in there. In fact, there’s even a couple of them we haven’t seen (Max and Bart to name a few). And of course if you have speedsters, you need Black Flash who’s also a huge comic character. People complaining are the ones who never read the comics.

      And when the writers take an adaptation (movie, show…etc) too far away from the comics, people also complain, there’s no win-win situation.

      The only thing I would agree is I would love more none-speedster characters, was disapointed we got so little of Tar Pit or Mirror Master or even Captain Boomerang.

  17. John says:

    This is one reason I dumped all the CW superhero shows. When no one stays dead it significantly lowers the stakes, and it’s only been exacerbated by all this Earth 2 and time travel nonsense. Supernatural has a similar problem.

    • John Smith says:

      thats a perfectly fine opinion to have. but the comics, people dont stay dead either. theres other worlds. time travel all the same. if the show didnt do those things, theyd be going way off comics and would get hate. just like they get hate from people who dont read comics.

  18. Luis Roman says:

    Could that picture smolder a little harder?

  19. Luis Roman says:

    I figured that once he was gone from “Quantico,” chances were decent that Eddie might show up again, especially with Eobard back in play. Looking forward to seeing him, however they use him.

  20. herman1959 says:

    Knew it! However it plays out, I can see the hand of Greg Berlanti in it and I’m glad. I’m feeling like the show is back on track now.

  21. Norms says:

    So Eddie is back!.
