Mark Hamill and John Wesley Shipp Returns for the Flash’s Christmas Episode ‘The Present’
Happy Holidays Barry Allen! And to give fans a “gift” here are some stills from the Christmas episode of the CW’s The Flash featuring John Wesley Shipp and Mark Hamill as Earth 3 Flash Jay Garrick and the Trickster.
Here’s the synopsis for the episode. We were hoping that Hamill would be playing the Jokester but alas. Still, the Trickster is awesome in any universe.
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.
Bonus look at Alchemy for this episode…
Wonder if John Wesley Shipp would actually join Legends of Tomorrow. That would be totally awesome and would totally complete the very old guard lacking JSA.
