It looks like The Flash becomes a reunion for the ’90s series of The Flash in the mid-season finale, 3.09 “The Present”. The gallery of images from the episode reveals not only the return of John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick but also Mark Hamill as the Trickster. They both starred in the ’90s series and have also appeared in the new show before… it’s all so meta we’re surprised the show doesn’t start warping the very fabric of reality.
The episode is directed by Rachel Talalay, who’s helmed both of the two-part finales for both of the most recent series of Doctor Who. The official synopsis reveals: “With Alchemy and Savitar still looming threats, Barry is unable to focus on the Christmas holiday, and especially his relationship with Iris. Determined to stop Savitar, Barry goes to Earth-3 to get advice from Jay Garrick (guest star John Wesley Shipp). Wally wants to help Barry fight Savitar and reveals that he’s been training with HR, which doesn’t go over well with Barry. As Cisco faces his first Christmas without his brother Dante (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez), old wounds are reopened.”
