"I thought after Sherloque was tracking down himself, the Reverse-Flash, even early on in that season. Yeah, this feels like I might be heading towards the exit now. I thought it was a perfect denouement. The Wells characters have been fun, but as we say, the show is called The Flash and it'll be fine without me.”
The actor also said: “I feel like all of us on The Flash feel a certain sense of propriety toward the show and when Greg Berlanti calls, I don't think there's ever any hesitation,”
“I think one of the grand things about the show is the collaboration I've had with him. It's not just a sense of, When this guy calls, he's so prolific, I best go.’ It's more a sense of, When this guy calls and he's so wonderful, I can't wait to go.’”
