Jay Garrick, Patty Spivot Cast for "The Flash" Season Two; Wally West to Appear
Here's the official character description of Jay Garrick, created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert and first seen in 1940's "Flash Comics" #1: "Jay is a mysterious figure who arrives in Central City to warn Barry Allen and his team at S.T.A.R. Labs of an impending danger that he alone cannot hope to stop." Patty Spivot was created by Cary Bates and Irv Novick, and debuted in 1977's "DC Special Series" #1. WBTV's description: "Patty Spivot is a police officer and science enthusiast who catches the eye of Barry Allen. Patty is obsessed with metahumans and partners with Det. Joe West this season but has no idea that her new crush is The Flash." "Jay Garrick is obviously integral to the Flash mythology," Kreisberg said of the original Flash. "Now that we've established our Flash, we thought it was interesting to bring on the original Flash, and create a brand-new episode for Barry to have." Johns pointed out the episode number of last year's season finale which had the first appearance of Jay's helmet was "123," the same as the issue number of "The Flash" comic book where Jay first met Barry (the famous "Flash of Two Worlds" story).
