On his Twitter account, The Flash pilot's villain has made a few statements this week that may hint at a return to the hit CW drama.
Asked on December 7 whether he might return to The Flash, actor Chad Rook responded with "Keep watching," an interesting tease considering that he appeared to have been killed at the end of the series premiere.
Death often prevents characters from recurring.
Well, today he added these two tweets to the mystery:
Looks like I'm headed back to ______ City. Lol ;)— Chad Rook (@ChadRook) December 10, 2014
Holy crap!! I just read a script that you fans are going to FU#%!*G LOVE!!! #ComingVERYSoon— Chad Rook (@ChadRook) December 10, 2014
Update: The first of the tweets above has now been deleted.
While "_____ City" isn't actually enough characters for "Central City," his other recent credits don't appear to include anything that would fit better.
Many fans had speculated that, rather than bringing back Rook's character, the "real" Weather Wizard might turn out to be his character's brother, who also appeared to perish in the same small aircraft crash that they believed had killed him.
The Flash returns in January with new episodes Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
