Fans of The Flash now know when Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) will next appear in Central City courtesy of TV Insider. Spoilers for fans hoping Wally would return to assist with Crisis on Infinite Earths (COIE) – he doesn’t. Unless of course this is a ruse, since the final two parts of COIE do not air until mid-January 2020.
Wally is slated to return in episode fourteen of The Flash’s (current) sixth season. Lonsdale last appeared on The Flash during season five’s premiere episode, “Nora.” Prior to that, Kid Flash helped the team defeat season four’s ‘big bad’ DeVoe. When Lonsdale stepped down as a series regular in season four, his character left Central City in order to undergo a spiritual journey in Tibet. That journey hijacked by a tour of duty on-board the Waverider in Legends of Tomorrow season three.
The Flash’s showrunner Eric Wallace told TV Insider, “Wally has grown, along with his speedster abilities too.”
In comics, Wally has displayed the ability to siphon speed from individuals and create costumes comprised of speed force.
During the same interview, Wallace also mentioned that Wally won’t be the only person coming home. An old foe with a new face will also return during the same episode. In a multiverse filled with time displaced beings and individuals with psychic abilities Team Flash may not realize what’s coming until it’s too late.
Post below whether or not you are excited about Wally’s visit, and your thoughts about the returning member of Team Flash’s rogues gallery.
