The Flash: Meet Detective Joe West's New Partner


I came across some more auditions, but this time they're for The Flash. They reveal that DC Comics' Patty Spivot will be joining the show.

In the auditions, we learn that Patty is going to become Detective Joe West's (Jesse L. Martin) new partner in season 2. You know, because his old partner Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) sacrificed his life to prevent Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne from existing.

In the first video, Patty shares a scene with West, telling him that she can be trusted even though she is still getting used to the meta-humans. In the second clip, Patty gushes to Barry about the detail in his forensic reports.

In the comics, Patty was a forensic blood analyst in the Central City Police Department Crime Lab. More importantly, she was Barry Allen's assistant and even his girlfriend. Maybe sparks will fly between them on the television series as well.


The Flash returns for its second season this fall on The CW.
