Citizen Steel, played by Nick Zano, has officially confirmed on Instagram that Wally West/Kid Flash will come aboard the Waverider and will become a new member of the Legends. In the photo below you can see that Keiynan Lonsdale is on set with Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who plays Amaya Jiwe, the original Vixen, on the show. It had been confirmed previously that Lonsdale is set to become a series regular for the rest of the Legends’ third season of time traveling.
After the exit of Jefferson Jackson (Franz Drameh) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) as the matrix of Firestorm, the Legends team are in need of an engineer in case the Waverider ever ran into mechanical problems and Wally fits the bill. It will be interesting to see how Kid Flash will join the team. Does he travel via speed force and somehow gets onto the ship? Another option is, does Captain Sara Lance make a pit stop to pick up her friend, who is in need of a change of scenery? The Legends will need an extra body on the Waverider to compensate the loss of Firestorm before taking on Damien Darhk and his connection to Mallus for the rest of the season.
It is unknown when Wally joins the Legends team as he could join right when the season returns from hiatus or he could join later on in the season. It has to be intriguing to see how Kid Flash makes his entrance and become a permanent member of the Legends on the Waverider. The first Legends’ episode back from hiatus is focusing on John Constantine, played by Matt Ryan, being in need of help with the mystical arts that could hurt the team’s future actions down the road if this demonical situation isn’t dealt with. With West being Kid Flash and going through a change because of his break up with Jesse Quick, it wouldn’t be surprising if West decides to keep on running and somehow ends up in the same time period as the Legends. Regardless, it will be an interesting opportunity to see how Kid Flash is used on Legends of Tomorrow.
Legends of Tomorrow comes back from hiatus on February 12th. The third season will be moving to a new time slot on Mondays because Supergirl will be going a hiatus to preserve the CW network’s balance of airing of multiple superhero shows.
