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)
