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

Is The Thinker coming to The Flash?

During Tuesday’s episode, future villain Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) rattled off a list of Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) greatest foes, including Thawne (Matt Letscher), Zoom (Teddy Sears), Savitar, and DeVoe — a villain not yet introduced on the show.

Who is DeVoe? In DC Comics, Clifford DeVoe is a genius inventor otherwise known as The Thinker. Using scientific devices, like his infamous Thinking Cap, DeVoe was a member of the Injustice Society as Suicide Squad, as well as one of The Flash’s foes.

While the mention of DeVoe’s name could just mean he’s a villain-of-the-week we may meet in the future, it seems worthy to note that he was mentioned among the main baddies from each season. Plus: The Thinker potentially being introduced as the new big bad of season 4 would certainly make sense in light of recent news; executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed at PaleyFest that the show would not include a speedster villain next season.

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