Legends of Tomorrow: Keiynan Lonsdale Explains Why He Will No Longer Be a Series Regular.
Well from what we can recall, Keiynan Lonsdale Wally West/Kid Flash was introduced as a speedster to the show in season 3, and almost got fater than Barry, not forgetting a speedster girlfriend ‘Jesse Quick’ which seemed like the best thing that could happen to someone that had just lost his mother. Later on, the writers felt Barry should be the faster one instead, so the plot changed and broke the two love birds ‘Wally and Jesse’ rendering Wally almost useless in the show until he was moved to Legends Of Tomorrow which seemed like the correct thing to do. While at Legends, it was shown to us that his speed didn’t always solve the problem due to the fact that Legend’s Problems were more mystical than real.
Well this shouldn’t be the end of Wally West since the Arrowverse has a lot of characters that bounce around in the show. So it’s possible we see him later in future episodes.
Keiynan Lonsdale Himself reported on twitter saying: “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably noticed lol), and for infinite reasons my perspective on life and what I want from it now is just completely different. Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path.” He also added that: “It’s definitely not a total goodbye or ‘see ya never’ situation. Wally West will still be around when you need him most.”
