The Flash’s Violett Beane on Jesse Quick’s new powers

Plus: Scoop on Earth-2’s Flashpoint twist!

How did Flashpoint affect Earth-2 on The Flash? Spoiler alert: It didn’t.

When Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) and Harry (Tom Cavanagh) return to Earth-1 during Tuesday’s episode, they’re in for quite the shock — that’s because Flashpoint had no affect on Earth-2, which means that while everything else in this timeline seems to have changed, they haven’t.
