The Flash: Meet the new Harrison Wells

Posted on


Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s episode of The Flash. Read at your own risk!

Though Harry Wells has returned to Earth-2, the members of Team Flash won’t be without their mentor for long.

During Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, Harry (Tom Cavanagh) suggested they interview various other versions of Harrison Wells from the multi-verse to find a new ally. Put to the test with a difficult equation, four different Wellses returned their call, including a French mime and a cowboy named Hells Wells.

In the end, the team enlisted the Harrison Wells from Earth-19, H. R. Wells, to join the team. We don’t know much about this version of Wells other than he seems to be a hipster with a sense of humor.

The move shouldn’t come as a surprise since Cavanagh has played a different version of Harrison Wells each season. In season 1, he was actually Eobard Thawne pretending to be Harrison Wells, while in season 2 he was Earth-2 Wells.

“If the show has strengths, I would argue that we’re not repeating ourselves generally, and specifically I’m trying not to repeat myself,” Cavanagh recently told EW.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
