The Flash Season 2 Casts Lady Speedster Jesse Quick!

at . Comments

The first female speedster has joined The Flash Season 2!

Newcomer Violett Beane has landed what is sure to be an amazing role in the upcoming season according to TV Line, as Jesse Quick, also known in the comics as Jesse Chambers, daughter of Johnny Quick and Lady Bell, from whom she inherited powers.

Violett Beane

Beane is slated to appear in multiple episodes as a quirky college student who will find herself right in the middle of the clash between The Flash and Season 2's big bad, Professor Zoom (who has not yet been cast). 

Interestingly, in one version of the comics, Jesse assisted Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), a series regular beginning in Season 2, take down Professor Zoom by giving him some of her abilities, leaving her powerless. There is a history there. I wonder if it will be explored as these two new characters come into contact on The Flash!

All will be revealed as things get into swing when The Flash returns to The CW on Tuesday, October 6.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.


Barry: I love you, Iris.
Iris: Oh. I love you, too.
Barry: When we were kids I loved you before I even know what the word love meant and then my mom died and I had to go live with the girl I had a crush on. Look. There were so many times I wanted to tell you; Jr. Prom, when I went away to college, when I came back from college, nights that we stayed up talking, all the birthdays, all the Christmases, but I, I never did. I kept it in. After I lost my mom and my dad, I was afraid that if you didn't feel the same way, I would lose you, too. That's the irony. I was so scared of losing you that I did. I know I've had our whole lives to tell you this and you're with Eddie now and I know that and I know my timing couldn't be any worse, but I just... I couldn't lie to you anymore. I'm sorry.
