Legends of Tomorrow’: Matt Letscher Returning as Eobard Thawne

The Legends of Tomorrow will get a Flash from their earlier when Arrowverse alum Matt Letscher reprises his job as Eobard Thawne later this thirty day period.

Getting initially performed Thawne on The Flash, Letscher last appeared on Legends at the conclusion of Season 2, capping a year that pit Sara & Co. against the Legion of Doom (which came in the kind of Thawne, Neal McDonough’s Damien Darhk and John Barrowman’s Malcolm Merlyn).

Letscher subsequent will show up as Thawne in the Wednesday, Jan. 26 episode of Legends, titled “The Set Issue,” in which the titular heroes uncover them selves in a bar that is popular with time-travelers.

The reason for Thawne’s involvement will become a bit a lot more crystal clear in the synopsis for the adhering to episode, airing Feb. 2 and titled “Rage In opposition to the Machines,” in which the Legends — with the aid of claimed speedster — split a mounted stage and thus generate an aberration that will bring in the Evil Waverider. The Legends in change are shocked to notice who has been searching them, soon after which and Sara attempts to broker a negotiation… which does not go as planned.

Letscher’s part in the Arrowverse is… difficult, and quite fluid/mushy. Eobard Thawne appears to be like Letscher, but back again in 2020 — before the events of The Flash began — the sinister speedster killed Harrison Wells (played by Tom Cavanagh) and stole the scientist’s deal with applying a transmogrifier.

As soon as the variation of Reverse-Flash who stole Wells’ id was erased from the timeline on The Flash, any potential iterations should look like Letscher. But as hand-waved when the villain resurfaced for the duration of the “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover occasion, The Flash‘s edition of Thawne carries on to look like Cavanagh. (It is all really even messier than that, but it’s late now. Anyone else certainly can fill in the blanks in opinions!)

Regardless of what the situation, who’s jazzed to see Letscher back again as Thawne?
