Considering the fact that season two of The Flash ended with Barry Allen racing back in time to change history, we really don’t know what the show’s upcoming third year will look like. The premiere is titled “Flashpoint”, a nod to the comic book series which saw the Scarlet Speedster change history (but not for the better) after he decided to save his mother’s life.
However, one character we know will be present is Kid Flash. Wally West and Jesse Wells were hit by the same particle accelerator blast which created The Flash during near the end of season two, so this isn’t a huge surprise, but will he be Kid Flash is just the altered reality – if there is one – or in the show moving forward? We’ll have to wait and see.
Either way, there’s no denying that Keiynan Lonsdale looks perfect in the role. In fact, it’s as if he’s been torn straight out of the pages of the comic books. With any luck, we’ll get to see Jesse Quick (the daughter of the Earth-2 Harrison Wells) next, but that could be a reveal The Flash is saving for somewhere down the line. At least Barry finally has his partner anyway!
