Welcome to the Legion!

1It looks like The CW’s new show The Flash is going to have yet another alum from the 1990s CBS series of the same name. As you know, John Wesley Shipp, who played the title role in the earlier series will return as Henry Allen, Barry Allen’s father. Well, according to The Wrap, “an individual with knowledge of the project” says that Amanda Pays will reprise the role of Dr. Tina McGee in Episode 109, a role she played in the 90s series.

In the original series, Dr. McGee worked for STAR Labs and helped Barry Allen deal with his powers and take on the criminals in the city. However, in this version, it look like she’ll “align herself with a rival faction.” This will be Pays first IMDB credit since 2008 when she appeared in an episode of Psych.

The Flash premieres Tuesday, October 7 on The CW. We’ll be doing weekly recaps, so stay tuned!
