Detective Patty Spivot isn't done with The Flash.

Patty (Shantel VanSanten) diverted her dreams to get vengeance, but once she managed to put the Weather Wizard behind bars and broke off her relationship with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), the cop had nothing tying her to Central City. A chance to become a full-fledged CSI lured Patty away, but, in a world where even death can't keep a person down, we've always assumed VanSanten's character would eventual return.

According to the actress, there is a very good chance viewers will see Patty in season 3.

"There's a very strong possibility if everything works out," VanSanten told Monkeys Fighting Robots at the Orlando iteration of Heroes and Villains Fan Fest last weekend.

Did VanSanten film for the Flashpoint timeline? Will she appear when Barry returns to a slightly altered version of reality? Only time will tell.

"The beginning and end of a character's story is never in my hands, I can only care for their journey along the way. I am so sad to see Patty leave @cwtheflash but I am beyond grateful for the experience," VanSanten said following the events of As a comic book fan I was geeking out over the opportunity to play a character in this world! I loved working with the cast and crew and getting to breathe life into such a fun character! Thanks to for your support and love! I'm going to miss my metahuman hunting in Central City!!"
