The Flash Review: Season 2 Episode 18 "Versus Zoom"

The Flash Season 2 Episode 18
“Versus Zoom”

Equipped with the Tachyon device, Barry believes he is fast enough to stop Zoom and wants to open the breaches to catch him. Harry strongly advises against that plan but after Barry convinces him, Harry reveals that Cisco has the power to re-open the breach. Meanwhile, Hunter Solomon’s painful Story on Earth-2 is revealed.

Barry and team are working to become faster, we are introduced while trying to test the Tachyon device which allowed him to jump over to Supergirl’s Earth. Once Barry figures out that he is now faster than Zoom, he wants to jump to Earth-2 but Harrison Wells is refusing to assist with opening the breaches.

Barry Figures the only way to jump between Earths is with the Help of Cisco, figuring he has the same powers that reverb had on Earth-2. At first Cisco refuses to assist, believing that the powers he has will eventually turn him evil like his doppelgänger. After some reassuring from Barry, Cisco agrees to help.

With the help of Wells the Team learns about the sinister acts of Zooms true identity, using this against him the team is able to capture Zoom. Unfortunately the team is unable to keep him locked up and Zoom escapes and kidnaps Wally. 

The only way to get Wally back is the trade Barry’s speed force for him. 

Final Thoughts:
Slowly this season we are getting more and more into Cisco and his powers, love the fact that he keeps getting stronger. It will be interesting to see where the creative team takes Cisco through the rest of the season and into next.

Another great episode, it will be interesting to see where they take this through the next few episodes. Will Barry capture Zoom to regain his speed, or has the speed force really left Barry? I know for myself I am hoping that the speed force will come back naturally allowing Barry to become a great hero. 

Once again there is a bigger tease which left many wondering who is actually under the IronMask in Zooms lair. One aspect which hasn’t been touched on is if the man might be the original Flash for the early 90’s show, we did see this during the travel back in time scene. The same scene which showed us Supergirl.
