The Flash: 309 Preview – Jay Garrick Returns in “The Present”

The Flash 309 Preview – “The Present”

Episode Summary: (Mid-Season Finale) – 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.

It’s the holiday season in Star City, but Team Flash isn’t feeling the cheer. Barry is too worried about Savitar and Alchemy to concentrate on Iris and Christmas, Cisco is still suffering from Dante’s death, and Caitlin is likely still recovering from her Killer Frost ordeal. Meanwhile, Wally is been secretly training with H.R. and that cat is soon to be out of the bag. I predict there will be teary eyes, shouting matches, and some kind of big cliffhanger at the end (it is the mid-season finale, after all).

With a title like “The Present” I imagine the episode will address both meanings: a gift of some sort and the here-and-now timeline. With The Flash‘s current trend of angsty, drama-fest episodes, I think there’s a strong chance of “the present” being something ominous or dangerous, courtesy of the villains. But what could it be?
