    So bringing in Frankie, moving Wally to Keystone, and all that was essentially just some fan-service since he knew it wasn't going anywhere.

    Huh. In practice now I guess it comes off as Williamson trying to throw Wally as much of a bone as he could before HiC basically ruined everything for him. Even if apparently that might not have even been his intention.

    Man...Wally really doesn't have much backing him up at this point.

    That's pretty much exactly what he said. Something to remind us of why Wally is so cool... ya know, before totally massacring his character.

    Still no (real) Wally West at the end of Young Justice S3. It hurts a bit ... or a lot. Don't know.

    I think he'll return before the end of the show.

    I wish he'd return somewhere.... and not just to get screwed over or to uplift another character that DC still cares about.

    Dang. That thing about Williamson has got me a bit ticked.
    Also, searched that YJ#3 thing and... *sigh* Another faint hope is again snuffed out. I don't want this to be a case of 'let's bring him back in the last minutes of the last show of the season....and then they cancel the show or go on a super long hiatus or something.

    That was the impression I got too. It was Old Yeller's victory lap before DC brought him out behind the Event barn.

    Season 4 is happening and it feels like it's building to Final Crisis. I think a Wally return will happen then.

    Yeah! That was a bummer. Maybe they are going to keep him dead, Which totally suck.if they are bringing him back. i hope they bring him back at the start of the next season with artemis and everyone moved on. Wally can be given arc to find his place, maybe introduce linda. If timeskip is taken we could even have barry retire and wally except the title.

    I REALLY hope this is the case.
    With the Legion also making it's appearance (probably) in season 4, it is starting to look like Final Crisis 2.0 - with Wally returning instead of Bart.
    Here's hoping.

    You might be right. At first, I didn’t noticed what Zatanna said after Artemis came from limbo but it’s pretty clear that Weisman & cie will use the fact that Miss Martian messed up again with the mind of her friend.

    Yeah he’s definitely coming back. The real question is : when ? Is season 4 too soon ?

    And I really hope Artemis will be able to live the life she wanted with Wally. Ep 25 was such a rollercoaster

    I'm just tired of the cheap emotional manipulation.

    The show only brought his character back at the end of S2 so it could exploit his popularity for a cheap reaction with his death. Then they continued that same cheap manipulation throughout S3 rather than just letting it go like they should have given they didn't put much into his character throughout the two seasons he was alive.

    While it's not simply the show's fault, I'm tired of hearing how "important" Wally is while his character is treated poorly.

    Rend20, I agree.

    While not in love with the first season (because I like my Wally best as a full-fledged adult, thank you, and not as an ongoing joke until nearly the very end) it at least had some good spots with him and lots of characters I haven't seen since JLU ceased to air. Second season finally had a near-adult Wally and Nightwing, but then Wally for reasons NEVER EXPLAINED disappeared save for quick cameos until they finally let him shine only to massacre....him.... (Huh. Seems to be a recurring theme.) Then they say he is really, really, REALLY dead because "No speedforce" and then they get cancelled, and then they years later bring on Season 3 with mentions of Wally here and there....and nothing but dreams and memories. Are we supposed to wait five years like what happened in the comics? If so, then do they bring him back only to do their version of HIC? Please don't tell me that "So and so on the show luvs and adores Wally!" because I've seen how they (DC editoral and writers save for Geoff Johns in Rebirth) have 'loved' Wally so far. I wouldn't wish such love on my worst enemy.

    Final Crisis? Really? (I'm trying to recall just why it was that I disliked my copy of Final Crisis. Since I haven't looked at the book ever since my first read through.)

    How great it would it be to see Wally take over as the Flash in YJ??
    They've shown they're not afraid of aging the characters, and if Aqualad can do it, why can't Wally??

    Horrible Idea...YJ Wally is far less powerful than Bart and Barry...
