Next season of The Flash looks huge. The show will add Jay Garrick and Patty Spivot to the cast, and there are a couple of surprises in the footage that aired yesterday.
Spivot will be played by Shantel VanSanten, and in the comics she’s Barry’s lab assistant. On the show, she’ll be Joe’s partner and crushing hard on the Flash.
Teddy Spears will play Garrick, who was part of the first comic book multiversal crossover in the history of the business, which should tell you what’s coming up in season 2. If that’s not enough, though, fast forward to about minute 4 of the video they showed at the DC TV panel yesterday.
I really thought that it was the Black Racer running through Central, but it’s way too early for that. Season 2 starts on October 6th.
