“The Flash” pulled one other twist in the season 2 finale that has brought one other speedster into the fold. The Man within the Iron Mask who was held prisoner by Zoom in his lair on Earth-2 was none aside from [SPOILER ALERT!] the real Jay Garrick from Earth-three, who is played by John Wesley Shipp.

Shipp admits he was as shocked as viewers would be about this twist. “I by no means noticed this coming,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I left at first of the season, I came back once, but for the most of the season, I used to be gone. So to be brought again as part of a triple whammy, first with Henry’s death, which I expected, then the reveal of the man in the iron mask, which is me, which I did not anticipate, and then I definitely didn’t count on the man within the iron mask to be Jay Garrick. It’s a triple whammy for sure.”

It was crucial to Barry. However that’s not who Jay is. Jay has no idea when he comes out of that iron mask, the emotional mine subject that he is walking into. Going ahead, that is going to be attention-grabbing to discover.”

“He needs to have the same relationship with Jay that he had with his father, but Jay is coming from place of, ‘That has nothing to do with who I am,’ ” Shipp provides. “This is not the Henry/Barry relationship in another type. Jay is a really totally different man.”
