The Flash Season 3: Jesse Will Return — But to What Reality? And With Powers?

Although The Flash Season 2 ended with “Harry” Wells and his daughter returned home to Earth-Two, we will see Jesse again this fall. Many questions, of course, surround the nature of her Season 3 incarnation.

In addition to TV dad Tom Cavanagh continuing on as a series regular for Season 3 (but as whom?), “I know I’ll be back,” Violett Beane told TVLine at this week’s Saturn Awards in Los Angeles. “But I don’t know if it’s with or without powers.”

After all, when a powered-down Barry last season attempted to recreate the “accident” that turned him into a speedster, the speed force wave that swept through S.T.A.R. Labs bowled over both Jesse and Wally — instantly sparking speculation that one or both of them were en route to meet their fleet-footed fate (as Jesse Quick and Kid Flash, respectively).

“When Jesse got hit, I was like ‘It’s happening! It’s happening!'” her portrayer effused. “There was the spark when she got out of the coma, but… it didn’t happen, and I was like, ‘No!’ I’m very excited [to play a speedster], and would love for it to happen early next season,” premiering Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Of course, the fact that the CW hit is tackling the comic books’ epic Flashpoint storyline — in which Barry’s saving of his mother’s life in the past spawns an alternate reality/future — means there are all kinds of ways we could see Jesse again, even though she is back on Earth-Two.

“With the whole Flashpoint, anything can happen, right? It’s literally open to any different kind of false reality,” Beane noted. “She could be Earth-One Jesse, she could be a speedster…. Who knows!” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)

    When is season 3 coming out ?

  2. Sue says:

    Super stoked. Jesse was one of my favorite characters.

  3. LynnH says:

    The Flash continues to be pure, mind boggling entertainment. So glad Tom Cavanagh will be back… the show just wouldn’t be the same without some version of “Harry.”

    • Marko hillbilly says:

      Come back Wally!!! Why in the worlds would they not bring back Wally?

      • Lauren says:

        Are they not bringing back Wally???? He needs to come back, he’s my favourite! They need to make him a regular.

        • Ralph says:

          He’s starting to grow on me but when he first showed up he was an obnoxious jackass. He’ll never replace Barry as the Flash, though. Ratings will drop like a rock. Barry and Iris ARE the Show!

  4. Wordsmith says:

    I honestly have no idea what the Flash writers’ room has planned at this point after all the baffling metaphysical twists and turns, but more Jesse seems like a good thing. Let’s hope it all comes together nicely.

  5. Tony says:

    Glad to hear. She was, surprisingly, an entertaining character when she could have easily been annoying and superfluous. I love that with the introduction of the multiverse and with Flashpoint, t we can get multiple versions of every character and allow for the actors to keep things fresh

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Happy Jesse will be back. Hope she will have her speed powers in new season.

  7. steven says:

    It could be Earth-1 Jesse since Earth-1 Harrison Wells is alive since Barry killed Eobard in the past.

  8. Patty says:

    I’m so excited! I was so sad when Harry and Jesse left to Earth 2 so I’m really glad they’re gonna be back.

  9. keenen says:

    Please at least one season without another speedster…good or bad

  10. BenM says:

    Will the time-travel impact earth-two at all? Maybe since they’re different dimensions, she and Harry won’t be affected. Also, the main bad guy in flashpoint (spoilers) is Reverse Flash. I wonder if that’ll be Body Switched Wells or the regular Reverse Flash.

  11. Joyce benjamin says:

    Can’t wait for season 3

  12. Dijei says:

    Is she a series regular or recurring?

  13. eric says:

    When is season3 coming

  14. Tydeus says:

    Jesse could be from Earth-1 in Season 3. With Barry stopping Eobard in the past, he wasnt around to kill Harrison Wells and steal his identity, the particle accelerator still blew up but a couple of years later than usual, she’ll likely get hit and turn into a speedster.
