But because it’s in the future, so to speak – no pun intended – it didn’t really affect the other show. That final scene with Jonathan Cake, who played a wonderful Shade, such an amazing actor – our whole cast from A to Z was brilliant – but having that last scene be [about] The Shade and the Golden Age Flash, was really important. The Shade hadn’t showed up in a while and Jay Garrick was a nice surprise. I don’t think people are seeing him coming, which is cool."
Whereas Stargirl's last minutes given fans with one final little hybrid over the Arrowverse series, it isn't the primary time that individuals of Stargirl's cast have showed up in other arrangement.

With Stargirl being set up as portion of this multiverse, Shipp reprised his part as Earth-2's Jay Garrick in Stargirl season 2 taking after past appearances in other Arrowverse appears as an unique part of the show's Equity Society of America.
In spite of the fact that his appearance was brief, the return of Shipp's Jay Garrick in Stargirl's season 3 finale could be a culminate incorporation to celebrate the show's conclusion. Not as it were does The Shade's going before visit and assembly with Garrick give Stargirl's gathering of people with a brief see at a confident future for the Equity Society of America for Earth-2, but Shipp's appearance is additionally a fitting goodbye to the multiversal perspective of the Arrowverese, as the establishment plans to wind down taking after the conclusions of different arrangement counting The Streak and Legends of Tomorrow.
