When and how do you think will they will bring back Wally???

I remember reading an interview with Greg Weisman that the second half of season 2 will shift focus back on the original team members. So far this season, Wally's the only one who hasn't been involved directly in the plot. His presence has been limited to cameos and supporting roles in 5 episodes this season. There's a lot of questions regarding him. He seems to be the one who wanted to step out of the hero game. That's a far cry from the Wally of season 1 who loved being a hero. So I'd love the find the reason behind that. I hope whatever they do, they bring him back in epic fashion. I hope he does have something substantial to do because we are almost 13 episodes down on season 2 with only 7 more to go and there's a lot of stuff to cover to resolve this story arc.

He's going to become The Flash.

@TheCannon: But doesn't that imply that he will join the JL rather than be part of the team. I mean I can't imagine Wally as Flash being part of the Covert Ops team. Flash is too public a hero for that.

@srk12: True, but he might not become the Flash straight away. Maybe only at the end of this season will see him eventually take up the Flash role if something happens to Barry.

The Flash should've die ..and Impulse saved him, but you can't overwritte history like this.

I guess he can still die at some point but if Artemis would be in danger and Wally would know about it be sure he will become kid flash again.

Think he'll stay as Kid Flash

I thought this was about comics Wally. He's not on the show either?

WHY DO YOU HATE WALLY WEST DAN DIDIO?!?!

I don't want Wally as Kid Flash. Impulse already fills his role in the team.

Wally needs to become The Flash.

If Wally becomes The Flash, then that pretty much removes him as a main character on the show. The show is about the covert ops team and Wally as Flash would never work on the covert ops team. I want more of Wally, not less. So I can deal with him being Kid Flash if that means more of him.

My guess is Wally will help out bec. Artemis likes to play super hero.

In the cartoons, it is easy for Wally to come back bec. Bart is Impulse so Wally can be Kid Flash again at any time.

I hope he stays kid flash because the costume is better and I like Barry as flash

Well now that the show is ending, I wouldn't mind with the season ending with Wally taking up the Flash mantle at the end of the season. I'm making a wild guess that Wally will return in the 'The Hunt' and maybe join the runaways in rescuing the team. I hope we see Wally soon because this show is the only place to see Wally what with him currently benched in the comics. He's by far my favorite non Bat family character.

i think he will be a "didnt see that coming" hero of the day. nobody has paid him any attention this season so it would be the perfect elemnt of surprise. just think about it: somehow the bad guys outsmart the team and they are helpless. then out of nowhere, he comes and saves everyone and they defeat the villains. i know it wont happen but that would be a little cool :P

So I was watching 'Darkest' and a thought struck my mind after watching Wally and Dick's argument. I was wondering what the point behind that argument was. When the episode had first aired, I had assumed that Kaldur's actions would be shady enough that the audience would doubt whether has actually turned bad or not. Nothing of the sort happened which makes me question the purpose of the argument. Granted, this is probably me just grasping at straws hoping for a substantial Wally appearance, but I thought that maybe Nightwing sent Wally undercover somewhere for the Light because he was having doubts about his own plan. It could be his wild card reveal in the final episode. I am just basing this on the fact that the argument in 'Darkest' was Wally's last appearance on the show and I have trouble understanding the reason why the writers would leave a main character so completely out of a plotline, while the rest of the main characters are still front and center, without a purpose. However, like I said, this is complete speculation and more of a desperate hope from my side that we will get to see Wally in action before the show ends.

Man that's what happens when you have a bunch of legacy characters, and then a reboot. Everyone wants their favorite characters now.......

It was just realistic writing. The fans were questioning it, why wouldn't the characters?
