The Flash Review: Season 2 Episode 10 "Potential Energy"

The Flash Season 2 Episode 10
“Potential Energy”

Now that they’ve grown closer, Barry considers telling Patty that he is The Flash. Meanwhile, Joe and Iris try to get to know Wally, and the team hunts down a meta-human who can slow time itself.

Finally back from the mid season hiatus, the newest episode of The Flash starts with Barry having a nightmare about Zoom taking Patty and killing her. These dreams are starting to have an effect on the relationship causing Barry to be somewhat distant. While trying to deal with his relationship problems the team at Star Labs have decided the best way to combat Zoom is by stealing the powers of another Meta Human who has the ability to slow everything around him down. When everything is all said and done, Barry was able to capture “The Turtle” but in the process ends up loosing the girl before he is able to tell Patty that he is The Flash.

Also during this episode Joe is dealing with trying to get to know the son he never knew about, Wally. The only issue Wally is pushing Joe away. Joe follows Wally and learns about his street racing in order to pay for his mothers medical bills.

Final Thoughts:
I am not sure how I feel about this episode yet.  We know that Harrison Wells needs to figure out a way to increase the speed of Barry, only to help when he learns of The Turtle and his meta power of being able to slow everything around him. By the end of the episode Harrison is seen stealing some fluids from the brain of The Turtle. Is this to help Barry or use against Barry? only time will tell but its interesting to see that Earth-2’s Wells tows the line between good and evil. 

I am also not sure about the new route the creative team has decided to take between Barry and Patty. I was a big fan of this relationship, mostly cause it no longer involved Iris. I will wait to see if this comes back around and how it will effect the rest of the season. But I am also glad that we didn’t get another person with in the show that learned about Barry’s secret life as The Flash. 

Finally, whats up with Wally West? Will he be around in the future? so many questions left un answered, however I do find it interesting that Wally has a thing for speed and seems to be one of the fastest street racers. Hopefully this means at some point Wally shows his abilities of the Speed force. 

This was a solid episode and it really is setting up the remainder of Season 2. I give this episode “One Thumbs Up”. Let us know what your thoughts of the episode are and leave a comment below.
