A number of new speedsters will be appearing in the highly anticipated second season of The Flash, with Jesse Quick, Wally West and Zoom all set to make their presence felt. However, one of the biggest new additions to The CW series is no doubt Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick, The Flash who hails from Earth-2.
Created in 1940 by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert, Jay was the DC Universe’s original Flash until the company underwent one of its first major overhauls some years later and introduced Barry Allen. Since then, it’s been explained that Jay hails from an alternate universe, but he and Barry have worked together as allies on a number of occasions.

That’s expected to also be the case in season two of The Flash, as you can see from the synopsis for the episode that he’ll make his debut in, “Flash of Two Worlds.”
Jay Garrick, a mysterious man from Earth-2, appears at S.T.A.R. Labs with a dire warning about an evil speedster named Zoom, who is set on destroying The Flash. Barry and the team must decide if they can trust this stranger even as they face yet another powerful meta-human. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) must deal with a determined officer named Patty Spivot who wants to join his meta-human task force.
