The Flash A Flash From The Past - The John Wesley Shipp Thread

I was really surprised they had Henry discover Barry's identity so early, but it's a nice touch showing that he's no fool and can put two and two together. What a great moment that was.
 
Soooo. Now that Wells has been outed, did the team get a confession to get Henry out of prison?
 
Barry has put NO effort in clearing his dad

So trying to get Wells to confess his crime back in "The Trap", going through his whole life to solve other "unexplained" mysteries as a means of perhaps finding a potential clue that could have solved his own, and trying to go back in time so that his dad would never go to prison isn't effort enough?

Nope, total slacker, that Barry :o
 
I just think if he actually out his gathered evidence together for an appeal, he'd probably get his dad out.
Several eyewitness's can now confirm the existance of the man in yellow, including the arresting officer. Add this in with several surveillance tapes, and the Fact that Cisco put on a light show proving his physical presence at the scene of the crime, at the time it was happening, and you really have to wonder what it is that's keeping Henry Allen in Prison.

1. You do realize that any evidence that the Police had on the case was apprehended by Thawne in the first half of the season. Also, Barry had revealed that he had gone through them several times for most of his life and still came up with nothing.

2. Barry's identity as the Flash could end up being revealed if they chose to use the whole "light show" thing that Cisco had used in the house. Plus, even with some people now knowing the existence of the Reverse Flash, they still don't have tangible proof to connect him with the case, which would be required in order to get Henry out.


And you're the one that clearly said that Barry has placed NO effort in trying to get his dad out when others, including myself, proved otherwise.

I'll have to watch that part again. Which episode was that? Would this include the footage of his Star Labs assault where he killed a whole police squad?

2. Barry's identity as the Flash could end up being revealed if they chose to use the whole "light show" thing that Cisco had used in the house.
Why? Since they're leaving out the whole thing as evidence, why not just pick and choose, and not reveal the adult blood as evidence?

And you're the one that clearly said that Barry has placed NO effort in trying to get his dad out when others, including myself, proved otherwise.
I don't understand why you seem so defensive here.
 
At this point
if Henry is Zoom then it would explain his absence from the show lately. John went on record to say it's not but you never know.

If there were one thing I could command the producers of the Arrowverse to do, it would be to do an episode where Barry goes to the 90s Flash's earth.

I want to see that version of Central City. What those versions of Barry, Tina, Julio, Trickster, and Bellows are doing. Whether Barry is still The Flash there, whether Barry and Tina ever got together, whether the Rogues ever assembled like they were going to if the series were renewed back then.

Would LOVE that. Imagine our Barrys reaction if he met a Barry Allen with Jays (and his dads) face. Hell, it would be even better if Jay was there also - imagine him and Flash 1990 Barry coming face to face, both played by JWS - the potential for awesomeness is off the charts.
 
I've been waiting 20 years to see Barry and Jay together like that diner scene. It was perfect.

Flash: Jay Garrick Will ‘Figure in More Prominently’ in Back Half of S2
6 hours agoTV NEWS
John Wesley Shipp told CBR that Jay Garrick will become a bigger part of The Flash Season 3 as it moves into its second half.Read more





Jay Garrick may not have been around much in “The Flash” Season 3 so far, but all that’s about to change. According to John Wesley Shipp, who plays the Golden Age speedster, Jay will become a bigger part of the season as it moves into its back half.


When asked whether or not we’d see the show expand on the mistakes Jay told Barry Allen he made when he was a young speedster, Shipp told CBR, “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?'”

He also weighed in on the idea of playing a legacy character, saying, “Clearly, we’re in a legacy period. Superman is on ‘Supergirl,’ you’ve got Golden Age Flash… One thing I love about the comic universe is the legacy and the lineage and — to be part of that group as an actor who played Barry 25 years ago, and now as Golden Age Flash, and seeing it from a whole different perspective — is quite unique.”


Shipp certainly isn’t the only DCTV alum to be honored on the latest iteration of his character. Likewise, Christopher Reeve and Margot Fisher both appeared on “Smallville,”

while Helen Slater and Dean Cain appear regularly on “Supergirl.” However, it seems that Shipp — who played Barry Allen in the 1990s “Flash” series — could play an even more prominent role than any of the stars listed above.

For the full interview with John Wesley Shipp, check back with CBR tomorrow.
Starring Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster, “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Keiynan Lonsdale and more.

Good; if he figures prominently into the second half of S3 it means he probably doesn't die tonight.

Thus my hopes for a Jay/Barry/Wally/Jessie team-up remain alive!

Huh. I wonder if they'll steal a beat from the comic arc with Hunter Zolomon, and have Barry beat Savitar by borrowing speed from all the other speedsters?
 
I think Team Flash will be born this season and John Wesley Shipp did great as the real Jay Garrick.
