While Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) may have revealed the truth about Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh) on “The Flash,” it’s not going to be easy to believe.
Cisco (Carlos Valdes) might have had very convincing dream flashbacks to the erased timeline in which Thawne kills him, but Caitlin (Danielle Panabeker) remains skeptical in the April 21 episode, “Who is Harrison Wells?”
Speaking to Zap2it, Panabaker says, “Obviously, at the end of episode 18, Joe and Barry have told Caitlin and Cisco what’s going on with Dr. Wells. But Caitlin is not going to believe it.”

How could she? After all, Wells is something of a personal hero for Caitlin — one that’s made most of her dreams come true.
“This is someone who’s been important to Barry, but he has changed Caitlin’s life in dozens of ways — not the least of which is giving her a career she’s really proud of and bringing Ronnie (Robbie Amell) back,” Panabaker says. “It’s going to be a struggle for her, absolutely. You get to see her run through the gamut of emotions I think any person would when presented with this information.”
Denying the evidence as it stacks up around her could prove to be disastrous for Barry. “She certainly has an instinct to go talk to Wells at some point and say, ‘Help me set the record straight,'” Panabaker teases.
“The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
