Legends of Tomorrow: How Kid Flash Joins the Show

Kid Flash DC CW TV

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Here I Go Again," the latest episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow has officially welcomed Keiynan Lonsdale's Kid Flash into the fold. In "Here I Go Again," the latest episode, Rip Hunter recruited Wally West into his fight against Mallus.

Wally debuted in a brief tag at the very end of the episode. A clean-shaven Hunter found the young Flash character in China, where he sat deep in meditation in a gazebo. Peering around the entrance to the gazebo, Hunter confirmed Wally's identity and introduced himself. He then told Wally that he needed his help to save time, and the episode came to a close. As such, it appears he will soon join the Legends on the Waverider, though it's unclear how they will get from China to the time ship.

This is also the first time Hunter has been spotted on the show since "Return of the Mack," Season 3's fifth episode, which means he's been absent for almost six episodes. In his last appearance, he was taken into the Time Bureau's custody, as they believed he had gone mad in his search for Mallus. However, he eventually escaped, as Agent Eva Sharpe revealed to Sara later on. Per his latest appearance, it appears the former Time Master has continued his war against Mallus ever since.

Lonsdale’s Kid Flash appeared briefly in the Season 3 premiere, where he came to Citizen Steel’s aid to stop a petty crime. The Legend, stranded in 2017 after Rip Hunter’s Time Bureau disbanded his team, had turned to crimefighting in Central City and got a little more help than he bargained for when Wally swooped in and stole his thunder by making short work of his opponents.

"Wally West is not only back in the company of old friends from the Arrowverse, he’s fighting alongside a former enemy and career arsonist Mick Rory [Dominic Purcell]," executive producer Phil Klemmer said when it was announced that Lonsdale had joined the series. "By the end of this season, Wally will learn that the Legends have a different definition of what it means to be a hero."

Airing Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixen, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash.
