No one is saying it has to be shoehorned in. By automatically dismissing the suggestion you seem to be implying the writers don't have the writing chops to get it done.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

We're saying that the way things have been setup so far pretty much any introduction of Jay with superpowers would be shoehorning.

I'm not "automatically dismissing" anything. I'm just cautioning against "automatically" assuming it would be the best option. I'm trying to balance the discussion by providing counterarguments so that both sides of the question can be considered.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Fair enough. I just think that the way they are setting up Barry getting his powers could also easily lead to a Jay Garrick Flash if they are so inclined. I guess we'll see where they take it.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Most writers are awful.

There's only been 12 truly great authors in the history of the world.

The rest are a bunch of fricking hacks.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I gotta say that while Jay is cool and I would like him to come in at some point (preferably season 2 don't forget Barry didn't meet Jay until after a year into Barry's Career as the FLASH.) I think it would be counter-productive to make him appear too soon in the new series. My favorite idea is the Barry's father role. In fact, we could use this pic of JWS and Amanda Pays and say it's Barry's parents from before his mom was killed

I thought of some other Easter eggs we could throw in.
1. Say Barry had an Uncle named Jay who was a motorcycle cop killed by a biker gang.
2. Have Iris West be confused by name for a pioneer artist in the Computer Graphics Industry
3. Have names in the Police files at Central city PD include the names Julio Mendez, Warren Garfield, Officer's Murphy and Bellows, Chief Cooper, and even Meghan Lockhart (true Meghan was a PI not a cop but she could be listed under sources)
4. Have a PA message at barry's hospital addressed to Dr. Desmond Powell
5. Have Dick Miller do a cameo as Fosnight

Of course all these would be spread out over the course of the season as easter eggs not all thrown into the same episode.

Yes, that's what I meant Out Of My Vulcan Mind.

They're using a particle accelerator to give Barry his powers so they're already going pretty far out there. Who's to say the same accident didn't also open up a portal to a parallel dimension?
Plus, they've already set up the "blur" that killed Barry's mother (how many years ago?) as either someone with powers or someone with advanced technology, so I don't think parallel dimensions or a powered Jay Garrick is going too far out for the Arrowverse...

I agree. There is no reason that a Jay Garrick from Earth 2 could enter the picture at some point--maybe introducing us to the original Black Canary? Jay Garrick has had several incarnations, any one of whom could be introduced. Even the Earth 2 Jay has a couple of incarnations at this point--and we have already learned that the writers seem to be introducing more contemporary elements of the Flash's origin.
