New The Flash season 7 synopsis teases the return of a major villain

The CW has released the official synopsis for The Flash season 7 premiere “All’s Wells That Ends Wells” and it teases a huge return.

With the seventh season of The Flash set to hit The CW on March 2, fans of the now-flagship show of the Arrowverse are eager to learn what happened to Iris West-Allen, who has been trapped in the Mirrorverse since mid-season 6 and how her husband, Barry Allen, and Team Flash intend to deal with Eva McCulloch aka the second Mirror Master.

With only a matter of days until the show returns, The CW has revealed the official description for the first episode of The Flash season 7.

As reported by FlashTVNews, the episode is named “All’s Wells That Ends Wells.” The synopsis for the oncoming episode can be found below:

When an experiment to save Barry’s (Grant Gustin) speed backfires, Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh) searches for a way to save The Flash and comes up with a dangerous plan. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) makes a startling realization inside the Mirrorverse and Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) faces off with Rosa Dillon (guest star Ashley Rickards). Alexandra La Roche directed the episode written by Sam Chalsen and Lauren Certo.

Is the Reverse-Flash returning in The Flash season 7 premiere?

Now, from the synopsis for The Flash season 7 premiere, there are a couple of things of note. We all know that, due to the corruption of the Speed Force following the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event during his encounter with Oliver Queen’s Spectre, Barry’s speed has been drastically waning and his connection to that energy source has been in decline ever since. As a result, Team Flash and Barry have been working towards creating their own Speed Force. But the dangerous plan that ensues could lead to the return of former villain.

The episode’s promotional images have Barry donning an apperance similar to that of the original Harrison Wells – who we know was Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash. The character was last seen when he was expelled from Nash Wells’ body in season 6 and he is set to return in some capacity in the show’s seventh season – which will kick off with the concluding episodes of season 6’s back half. That will then wrap up around three or four episodes in, starting the official season 7 storyline.

Could Barry’s Harrison Wells-like apperance mean that Nash’s dangerous plan (or the original experiment to retrieve Barry’s speed) could result in the comeback of Thawne?

The Flash season 7 premieres on Tuesday, March 2, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
