TV NEWS: The Flash Mid-season Finale Will Debut New Characters

November 20th, 2015 by Jake Tanner Comments



The Flash season 2 has already debuted some of the biggest characters in the DC character’s mythos. We’ve met Jay Garrick, Zoom, and Jefferson Jackson as Firestorm. We’ve also seen the return of Tom Cavanagh has Earth-2’s Harrison Wells. We’ve already been teased by the showrunners that we’ll be seeing a staple in the Rogue’s Gallery in Mirror Master.

In an expected turn of events, we’ve gotten word that the mid-season finale  will be the debut of fan-favorite, Wally West. The synopsis for the episode is as follows:

“Running to Stand Still” — MARK HAMILL, WENTWORTH MILLER AND LIAM MCINTYRE RETURN; KEIYNAN LONSDALE JOINS THE CAST AS WALLY WEST — When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale). Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg (#209). Original airdate 12/8/2015.”

It’s been well known that Wally would be debuting at some point this season, but it’s good to have an actual date for his on-screen debut. The mid-season finale will air on December 8th on the CW.

Are you guys excited for Wally’s debut? How have you liked season 2 so far? Let me know in the comments!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
