Entertainment Weekly recently revealed the first look at John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick in next week’s episode of Stargirl. This move has gotten a lot of attention and generated plenty of speculation as to whether it could signal any sort of connection to Earth-Prime’s Jay beyond just the casting, and now we have some more insight into that. The biggest takeaway is that Jay’s Flash costume on Earth-2 is exactly the same as it is on Earth-Prime
I know this doesn’t prove anything (yet), but I feel like it does increase the possibility that this could also end up bridging the gap between the 2 worlds more than we might’ve anticipated. Perhaps they’ll just say it’s a coincidence, but it wouldn’t have been too hard for the costume department to make some relatively minor but still noticeable changes to Earth-2 Jay’s suit. But they made a conscious decision to have it be the same, and I can’t help thinking that signals some sort of greater importance. Either way, this is just making me even more excited to finally see Jay on the show soon!
