A while back we learned that Violett Beane had been spotted on the set of The Flash suited up as Jesse Quick, and now Beane has elaborated on this more in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:
“Honestly, I did not know too much from the beginning. When I auditioned, I didn’t know it was for Jesse Quick at all. But when they were like, “You booked it, this is your character name,” I finally found out who she was. I definitely anticipated a suit-up last season. I was like, “Oh, it’s going to happen!” They really built that element of suspense. I get tweets all the time being like, “When is it going to happen?” Now, finally! Everyone is so excited.”
“Yeah, I think that’s going to happen. One of the promo shots is Harry and Jesse sitting there and there’s a box. Everyone’s like, “What’s in the box?!” You can kind of see a little bit of something, so I definitely think it’s going to happen in episode 4. It’s going to be really cool to see what it will be like.”
We’ve seen some very interesting on-screen adaptations for super suits, so the anticipation for Quick’s suit is high.
She then went on to discuss her powers and what caused them:
“As far as Flashpoint goes, I’m pretty sure it only affects one world, the world that Barry changed the timeline for. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t carry over to other worlds. The Jesse and Wells you’re seeing are the Jesse and Wells of last season. The particle accelerator, the dark matter, is definitely a part of what happened to Jesse. You’ll see in a scene in the episode about how specifically she started her powers. Yeah, the dark matter definitely had something to do with it.”
The dark matter hit Wally too, obviously, so it would be great to see him get his powers back (seeing as though it was only Flashpoint Wally who had powers). Though it hasn’t been elaborated on further, maybe was the traveling between Earth 1 and Earth 2 that had a reaction with the dark matter and gave Jesse the powers of the speed force, which could then be a way for Wally to get his speed. Maybe the we could see the four speedsters team up together, which Beane also expressed she would love to see.
