“The Flash” has been slowly unveiling its characters in video previews, and the next one on-deck is Detective Eddie Thawne. Played by Rick Cosnett, Thawne’s nickname at the Central City Police Department is “Detective Prettyboy.”

One look at the character, and the reason for that becomes all too clear.

In the narration provided by Candice Patton (Iris), she points out that the oh-so-attractive cop is also a little bit arrogant, but that “usually these are the guys you kind of fall for.” Could Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) have some competition for the heart of the lovely Iris?

Fans can find out when “The Flash” airs Tuesdays on The CW in the fall.
