The Flash S08E18: Matt Letscher Likes "Crazy-Ass Way" Thawne Returns

Only a day after series showrunner Eric Wallace expressed his hope to have Katherine McNamara's Mia Queen aka Green Arrow return for the ninth season, we're hearing from someone who might be surprising a whole lot of viewers with his return in tonight's episode of The CW's Grant Gustin & Candice Patton-starring The Flash, S08E18 "The Man in the Yellow Tie." As you've seen from the promo, Matt Letscher's Eobard Thawne aka Reverse-Flash makes his return, except Thawne is trying to convince Barry (Gustin) that he's not that Thawne. Is he telling the truth? And how is Thawne back anyway? Well, it's clear we'll have to wait until tonight's episode but Letscher took to Twitter to drop a serious ten-ton tease.

Here's a look at Letscher's tweet, where he shares how he always hoped to be able to come back but that the writers found "one crazy-ass way to do it":

Now here's a look at the images, overview, and promo for S08E18 "The Man in the Yellow Tie," as well as overviews for S08E19 "Negative, Part One" and S08E20 "Negative, Part Two" (where clearly something happens to Gustin's Barry Allen leading into the season finale):
