As pretty much everyone suspected, Wally West will transform into Kid Flash (as he did in the DC comics universe) in season three of The Flash, but perhaps even sooner than we were expecting. After Wally and Jesse Wells were blasted by dark energy in a second particle accelerator explosion a few episodes before The Flash’s second season finale, we were waiting with baited breath to see if either of them would show superpowers by the season’s end – but no. The writers appeared to be playing the long game. So we presumed we’d have to wait a while to see Kid Flash and Jesse Quick in season three… if at all.
But apparently not. The CW has unveiled an image of Wally West actor Keiynan Lonsdale in full Kid Flash costume, with the promise that Wally will be making his speedster debut in the season three premiere, “Flashpoint”. The only question now, then, is if this Kid Flash is a result of the new time line Barry has created by saving his mother in the season two finale.
