CW has officially released the synopsis “Running to Stand Still”, the season 2 midseason finale for The Flash! What does this mean? It simply means that we get Mark Hamill back at the Trickster as well as Captain Cold and Weather Wizard (… lame names am I right?). We also get to see Wally West! Whaaaaat… pretty exciting right? Here is the synopsis below:

MARK HAMILL, WENTWORTH MILLER AND LIAM MCINTYRE RETURN; KEIYNAN LONSDALE JOINS THE CAST AS WALLY WEST — When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale). Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg (#209). Original airdate 12/8/2015.
Wally West, played by Keiynan Lonsdale, is a Nigerian-Australian actor, singer and dancer best known for his role as a dance student, named Ollie, on the ABC Television Series Dance Academy. He also had a role in the Insurgent movie. So… yeah.. relatively unknown…. maybe this will be his break-out role? But perhaps not. I will just be happy if he is a passable Wally West. Good Luck Keiynan!
