Iris (Candice Patton) is concerned for Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) safety after she finds out about his drag racing hobby. When he refuses to stop she makes a bold move that puts her in danger. Rachel Talalay directed the episode with story by Brooke Eikmeier and teleplay by Kai Yu Wu & Joe Peracchio (#212). Original airdate 2/2/2016.

      Yeah, I’d guess they’re building up an interest in speed for him, which will presumably culminate in him getting speed powers of his own someday. He might end up being something of an Impulse figure, although on a much smaller scale, obviously.

    Yep! Love the tv Wally West, and he brings out the best in Joe and Iris. The writers were smart to distance him from Barry to begin with, given how badly the new comics dropped the ball with that relationship. Now when they meet, it will be as two fleshed out characters instead of a superhero and a very empty, cliche sidekick.
