The Flash Review: Season 2 Episode 6 "Enter Zoom"

The Flash Season 2 Episode 6
“Enter Zoom”

After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) decides it’s time to confront Zoom and comes up with a dangerous plan. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) sides with Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) and deems it too dangerous for Barry to engage with the speed demon. However, Iris (Candice Patton) shows her support and brings forth a surprising ally. We see what Earth-2 Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) life was like before coming through the breech.

What a episode, talk about the ramp up. This episode is about Barry and team trying to capture Zoom. They decided to use linda to dress up as Dr. Light and draw Zoom to Earth-1. While the team is trying to set up this trap, Cisco vibes on Harrison Wells daughter being in-prison by Zoom. Its now obvious the Wells is using Barry to beat Zoom, which is later confirmed in the episode. We also see that the relationship between Barry and Patty is getting more serious in this episode while Patty senses that Joe is keeping a secret about the Meta-Humans. Obviously this is going to lead to a crossroads at some point this season. Most likely leading to Patty finding out that Barry is The Flash. You might wonder how I came to outlandish prediction……Well as we have seen through season one and even in tonights episode when Barry Revealed to Linda that he is The Flash. Barry’s secret Identity isn’t so secret. 

At the end of the episode we were treated to the Face off between Zoom and The Flash. Everything Barry threw at Zoom was thrown right back at Barry. After Zoom beat Barry into the ground he took The Flash to the media and the police department to show that he is the greatest speedster and the there is no one that can save central city. Once back at STAR Labs Zoom attempts to kill Barry, however before Zoom can, Cisco saves the day. When Barry finally wakes up we learn that he no longer can feel his legs.

Final Thoughts, Tonights episode was definitely the best of the season. The fight between Flash and Zoom was the face off we probably were robbed of from season one with Reverse Flash. The build up to the season finale is going to be that much greater because of this episode. So how long can we expect Barry to not have use of his legs, My prediction is we will see him regain use by the end of the next episode however we will most likely be reintroduce to Firestorm and given the chance to meet Hawkgirl for the first time. I am also intrigued now that Harrison Well thinks he has no use for Barry how this plays out. Wells is the wild card still and without learning who Zoom may be, Wells is still an option. 

Its been great watching each episode this season. It seems like the writes have really learned from last season and made the improvement. The team has found a great balance with each character and found a way to make them relevant and important to the story. Much like Arrow this season, they have also found a way to not over shadow the main focus of the show with side stories. 

This weeks Flash might have been one of the top episode from either season, this is not surprising but it is great to see that the creative team can keep improving. I am also loving the easter eggs and ties ins to the Arrow. I give this Episode Two Thumbs Up. Leave Your comments on the show below, we would love to hear your opinions.
