Everyone who has been watching ‘The Flash‘ weekly on the CW was really stoked to find out that we are going to get our first glimpse of the villain ‘Reverse Flash‘ on the mid-season finale. But, although he is going to be appearing, it looks like his actual identity is going to remain a mystery. For more on this check out the news below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
Speaking of The Flash, while set photos spoiled his appearance weeks ago, and we had it confirmed over the weekend that Reverse-Flash will appear in the mid-season finale of The Flash, there are still some mysteries surrounding his first appearance on the show. EW.com, in an interview with cast and crew, found out that while we’ll definitely see Reverse Flash, and he’ll even have a conversation with Barry, he’ll be pulling a familiar trick.

”He’s vibrating, so [Barry] doesn’t know who he is. We don’t see his face,” Grant Gustin said. “No characters see his face and the audience doesn’t necessarily see his face either, but Barry gets to hear him say that he killed his mom.”
While, obviously, no one is spilling the beans on the secret identity of the character, Gustin merely said, “literally no one knows what’s going on. Anyone who think they know what’s going on is wrong. I’m in the in, and I thought I knew, but Andrew Kreisberg told me and I was like, ‘Holy crap.’”
“I like to think that we’ve done a good job on both shows of meeting fans’ expectations and subverting them,” Kreisberg added. “It can’t just appeal to comic fans and it can’t ignore them either.”
One person that seems to be out of the running, though, is the enigmatic Dr. Wells. Or at least, he’s covering his tracks. “Cisco and Wells devise a trap to bait the Reverse Flash and they enlist the help of Tina McGee, played by Amanda Pays from the original (90s) Flash show. it becomes an interesting new combination of characters,” said the producer.
