this is hands down one of the best episodes okay

Do you know who this Reverse-Flash is that’s popping up on The Flash this season? — Claire

Despite theories that he hails from Earth-Two, this actually is the Reverse-Flash we’ve come to know and hate — but with a twist. “Time on our show does not unfold linearly,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “Sometimes you’ve seen events from one direction and then you start to see them from the other. This Reverse-Flash is not exactly the Reverse-Flash that we saw disintegrate at the end of the year. It’s a Reverse-Flash from an earlier timeline. It’s not the Earth-Two Reverse-Flash, it’s the Reverse-Flash. That is, hands down, one of our best episodes.” [x]

Okay, so it IS the Reverse-Flash, just not THAT Reverse-Flash, but still THE Reverse-Flash. Got it everyone?
