Tonight marks the winter finale of The Flash for yet another year. The episode sees Barry heading over to Earth-3 to ask Jay Garrick for assistance in handling this new threat in Central City calling himself Savitar - a self-proclaimed god of motion.
Actor John Wesley Shipp, who plays Garrick on the show, recently sat down with with Comic Book Resources and revealed that fans can expect to see much more of the Crimson Comet when The Flash returns in 2017.
“Well, those hints keep being dropped. I mean, it’s very interesting to me, and I’m going to figure in more prominently in the second half of the season than the first. You just asked one of my questions, because nothing is wasted, I think we’ve seen in this show. So anytime something like that is dropped — and there’s more of it tomorrow night! — there are more… As I said, I’m most involved in this episode than any episode I’ve done on this show so far. So we get to see Jay dealing with this young speedster, we get to see his reaction to Savitar, and there really are some curious things that Jay says that make me, John, wonder, ‘Okay, what’s coming?’”
Are you excited to see more of Jay Garrick this season? We know we sure are!
With Alchemy and Savitar still looming threats, Barry (Grant Gustin) is unable to focus on the Christmas holiday, and especially his relationship with Iris (Candice Patton). Determined to stop Savitar, Barry goes to Earth-3 to get advice from Jay Garrick (guest star John Wesley Shipp). Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) wants to help Barry fight Savitar and reveals that he’s been training with H.R. (Tom Cavanagh), which doesn’t go over well with Barry. As Cisco (Carlos Valdes) faces his first Christmas without his brother Dante (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez), old wounds are reopened.
Starring Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Keiynan Lonsdale, John Wesley Shipp, Mark Hamill and Nicholas Gonzalez, The Flash winter finale airs tonight at 8pm.
