After Barry Allen reset the timeline at the end of season 2 of The Flash, it is unclear what changes will take place. We know that Barry’s mother and father are alive and well but another character that met his end in the original timeline is the original Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), who was killed and impersonated by the Reverse-Flash in season 1. Cavanagh then reprised his role as Harrison Wells from Earth-2 last season who returned to his earth in the finale with the help of Jay Garrick from Earth-3. You still with me? Good.
Cavanagh will be returning in season 3, which starts this Tuesday, but given the nature of the timelines, it is unclear which version of Harrison Wells he will be playing. Now, Cavanagh has given some answers to Ew…
“I played the original Wells on the beach with Tess. This guy won’t be that guy. If the show has strengths, I would argue that we’re not repeating ourselves generally, and specifically I’m trying not to repeat myself.”
What role Cavanagh will play in the story of season 3 remains to be seen but you can catch Season 3 Episode 1 of The Flash this Tuesday on The CW!!
