The Flash season 3 returns with an all-new episode on Tuesday (18 October), where Harrison Wells from Earth 2 will be back in Barry's Central City with his daughter Jesse – who is now a Speedster. The episode titled as Magenta will air at 8pm EST on The CW Network.
The official synopsis of the chapter reads as follows:
Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (guest star Violett Beane). Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth. He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers. Meanwhile, Magenta, (guest star Joey King) a new meta who can control metal, terrorizes the city.
Violett Beane, who plays Jesse, spoke about playing a Speedster and teases her character's powers in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Beane said, "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."
The actor teased Jesse's powers and shared, "She's pretty excited about it. Even in the promo that just came out, you can see, 'How cool is that?' For her, she's younger, so she has a more positive feeling toward the speed.
"Also, as a teenager, if you don't get something right right away, you tend to get annoyed or down on yourself about it, so you'll see a little bit of that, too. It's a power and it manifests itself, so there's a lot of learning that comes into it and it's a process, so you might see a little bit of that being difficult for Jesse. Also, she's really happy about it for sure," the 20-year-old added of her character.
