Shantel VanSanten Hints Patty Spivot Could Be Returning To ‘The Flash’ Season 3

patty spivot the flash

The last time we saw Patty Spivot in The Flash was about half way through season two, when she left town after being kidnapped by The Turtle. She told Barry she would stay in Central City if he admitted to her that he was The Flash, which he did not because he wanted her to be safe from Zoom. After leaving, she confirmed her suspicions by falsely alerting Barry there was a gunman on her train, which led him to superspeed to her side, proving once and for all she was right. In the end, she still ended up leaving the show, but as it turns out we may have not seen the last of her after all.

Shantel VanSanten, the actress who plays Patty, teased a possible return for her character. At a benefit in Orlando for the victims of the tragic mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub (100% of the profits went to the victims), VanSanten was asked about Patty and if her character would ever be making another appearance on the show. Check out her response:

“There is a very strong possibility if everything works out.”

VanSanten responded to the question with a large smile on her face. It looks as if we may not have seen the last of Patty Spivot, which may not be all that great for our protagonist, considering Iris and Barry finally confessed their love for each other at the end of season two. Flashpoint could easily change all that though. Also, we don’t yet know if Patty will be the original Earth-1 Patty, an Earth-2 doppleganger, or perhaps even from another timeline. Luckily we don’t have very long to wait until the return of season three to find out.

Are you excited to hear Patty Spivot may be returning to The Flash? Let us know below in the comments!

The Flash returns to the CW on Tuesday, Oct 4th at 8pm.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    No, I am not excited. She brought nothing to the show and needs to stay away. Her whole story line was pointless and awkward, plus it sidelined Candice Patton, who is the leading lady of the show.. They treated Candice very poorly in the first part of Season 2 and if bringing Shantel back means they’l sideline Candice again, then keep her away.

    • alalalalala

      Even if she is brought back and Candice doesn’t get sidelined what is point? Patty added nothing to the story and doesn’t have sl that need tying up. None of the fandom likes her not even the sb fandom

      • originalwharris

        Exactly! Thank you!

      • Carl

        I loved her character, so there goes your none.

        What’s sb fandom?

        • originalwharris

          The sb fandom are the delusional “SnowBarry” shippers who believe Caitlin and Barry should be a couple despite never showing any romantic interest in each other.

          • Stephanie B

            Screw snowbarry, those people are bats*** crazy. We’ve waited two seasons for Westallen, so lets gooooo!

        • alalalalala

          Yes the writers going to bring back character just for you. The writers from the start she was nothing more than a roadblock for Barry and Iris. Her story is done. SB is snowbarry the ship name for Barry and Caitlin

          • Carl

            It’s clearly not just me. Barry and Iris have no chemistry on the show. Caitlin and Barry are very much in the friend zone. Besides Caitlin has already hooked up with Firestorm and Reverse Flash, she needs someone normal.

          • alalalalala

            Candice got hired after she went through a chemistry test with Grant so the writers don’t agree. Also Westallen bring in the ratings so why they give that up for someone they wrote as desperate and clingy ? I think Ronnie was perfect for Caitlin expect the part where he can’t stay alive

  • Carl

    I loved her character. Hope she comes back and Barry dates her again. They had good chemistry unlike Barry and Iris who have none.

  • Lurking

    I would love to see her again. Here’s hoping she returns.
