Tom Cavanagh confirmed as regular for ‘The Flash’ season 3

The Flash Universe appears to still need Harrison Wells despite the wrap up to season 2. In fact, in the latest Entertainment Weekly Spoiler Room piece, the question was asked whether Barry’s actions at the end of the season finale would result in Tom Cavanagh making an exit from the show going forward.

 “Details on next season are being kept tightly under wraps, but I can tell you that Tom Cavanagh will be back as a series regular for season 3. Consider this: If the show does indeed move forward with Flashpoint, then the Reverse-Flash never killed Earth-1 Harrison Wells and his wife, meaning we could see the original Wells next season. Maybe. Hopefully.”

Harrison Wells and Jesse (Violett Beane) are seen returning to Earth-2 by season’s end, but if Cavanagh is indeed still part of the cast, that could mean he plays important role in fixing the timeline. Moreover, Beane’s Jesse in the comic book, aka Jesse Quick, is a Golden Age hero named Liberty Belle. She has been zapped by Wells’ second particle accelerator when trying to restore Barry’s powers, so she may be back with Cavanagh for that type of storyline.

Fans are expecting a Flashpoint-centric storyline in Season 3, as Barry (Grant Gustin) presumably screws up the timeline a great deal by saving his mother from Reverse Flash, something he didn’t do in a previous episode.

By episode’s end, we also see Hunter Zolomon carried off and possibly turned into the Black Flash.

Flashpoint synopsis: Barry Allen wakes up to discover everything and everyone around him has changed. He has no powers, his mother Nora (deceased in his own timeline) is alive; his father, Henry, died of a heart attack three years ago (instead of in prison). Captain Cold is Central City’s greatest hero, and the Flash, the Justice League, and even Superman do not exist.

That story also would require the return of Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, something which has been confirmed, despite his exit from Legends of Tomorrow.
