Stars from the 1990 Flash series collide as Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) fights The Trickster (Mark Hamill) on Earth-3! Well, more specifically, Hamill’s character is listed as his alter ego of “James Jesse” who looks a bit more like The Joker, the character that Hamill famously voiced in Batman: The Animated Series. Still, maybe Jesse doesn’t use the Trickster name on Earth-3.
It all happens in the December 6 episode of The Flash titled “The Present.” It happens to be my birthday and that’s quite a present! Here’s a gallery of photos newly released by the network:
Here’s how The CW describes it:
BARRY SEEKS HELP FROM JAY GARRICK — 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. Rachel Talalay directed the episode with story by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing and teleplay by Lauren Certo (#309). Original airdate 12/6/2016.
