So with Velocity 9 now on the show, how long until Jesse Wells2 and Wally West start juicing up? Season 2 to aid against ZOOM or Season 3?

Also the show has made many nice references to the 90's series including John Wesley Shipp as Henry Allen. Ship states he doesn't want to suit up again....but money talks and speaks loudly, and with CGI/stunt doubles we could very easily get an episode that is a major fan service.

Barry is unavailable or somehow captured. Jesse and Wally aren't around to help as they aren't speedsters yet, and Henry Allen is visiting Star Labs. They decide there is only one thing to do.....

...Henry juices up on Velocity 9 and suits up \:\)

They could even play the original series theme song as he's zipping around.

Hey after all, they did integrate the TRICKSTER from the old series into this one, so now with Velocity 9 they could easily do an episode as a tribute to the old show with Ship suited up again.

Money talks \:\)

John Wesley Shipp is quite wise to decline any suggestions of getting into a costume again, that phase of his career is over, but one possible story might be to have Barry acidentally arrive on another earth where he meets this now retired older version of himself from the 90s series of The Flash, it would work as a story in itself and with no need to understand the insider 'joke' that this is an old little remembered 90s series they are tributing.

Velocity 9 is a neat plot macGuffin to bestow superspeed on selected characters, it does raise the question as to how it is that a chemical can deliver the super-speed that the likes of the Flash need the Speedforce for though. I am not sure the logic of a lab drug being able to replicate the Flash's speed is entirely sensible in the context...
