WASH­ING­TON: The count­down to Wally West mak­ing his de­but as Kid Flash on CW Tele­vi­sion Net­work’s The Flash just got a lot shorter.

Va­ri­ety has re­vealed the first im­age of the side­kick speed­ster. Ac­tor Keiy­nan Lons­dale will make his first ap­pear­ance in the yel­low and red su­per-suit in The Flash sea­son three pre­miere, ti­tled Flash­point, on Oc­to­ber 4.

Fans will re­call that while Lons­dale made his de­but as Wally West in sea­son two, nothing ac­tu­ally hap­pened that would lead view­ers to be­lieve Wally would reach top speeds so soon in sea­son three. (He did ex­pe­ri­ence a mo­ment last sea­son that could have led to de­vel­op­ing su­per-speed – enough that his father Joe West (Jesse L Martin) kept test­ing him to see if he had be­come a speed­ster – but to no avail.)

What we could see in the pre­miere are the re­sults of Barry Allen/ the Flash ( Grant Gustin) us­ing his speed to go back in time to pre­vent the death of his mother in sea­son two’s fi­nale.

Ev­ery time Barry goes back in time, whether by ac­ci­dent or on pur­pose, he re­turns to a present day that has some­how been changed. One of those changes could be Wally now be­ing a speed­ster.

It would be quite the tease if Wally be­com­ing Kid Flash was only a tem­po­rary re­sult of Barry’s tam­per­ing with time. Fans waited pa­tiently in sea­son two and got no speed from Wally in re­turn; on the other hand, it was a sea­son-long look at the kid who would even­tu­ally be un­der­neath a mask.

Is Kid Flash here to stay? We’ll find out in just a few short months. It can’t get here fast enough. – Wash­ing­ton Post
