In these newly released images from The Flash mid-season finale, “Running to Stand Still”, Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) makes his debut by crashing Team Flash’s holiday party at Joe’s house. Nothing says Christmas like a secret sibling/offspring showing up at your door at the holidays. Could someone please pass the eggnog.
We posted here weeks ago that Lonsdale would be portraying Wally West, but the character’s existence was divulged only recently to viewers as well as to characters Joe and Iris West in the show. In the comic universe, Wally West is Kid Flash. A sidekick of sorts to The Flash himself as well as a founding member of the Teen Titans, the character would eventually take up the mantle of The Flash upon the death of Barry Allen. It hasn’t yet been revealed the true nature and purpose of Lonsdale’s character within the series. But seeing how Harrison Wells is running around with a synthesized speed force serum, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Wally as a new member of Team Flash in the near future. And I don’t think Joe West is going to be very happy about it.
But the surprises don’t stop there. Everyone comes home for the holidays to get together with friends right? Apparently, villains are no different. The Flash’s old foe The Weather Wizard/Mark Mardon (Liam McIntyre) is back in Central City and is interested in breaking both Captain Cold/Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) and The Trickster/James Jesse (Mark Hamill) out of prison. Let’s see, The Weather Wizard, Captain Cold AND The Trickster all in the same room together? Now that’s a party.
