Last time out, the Flash time travelled to lớn his own past & messed a whole bunch of stuff up. It would seem that the show is just trying lớn ignore the ramifications of Barry’s time meddling as no reference is made in this week’s episode khổng lồ the fact that Hartley Rathaway is now a reformed villain or that the Time Wraith could still be lurking at any moment.

Temporal paradoxes mean nothing this week however, there are more important things to lớn khuyến mãi with. The title of the episode tells you that much, “The Flash versus Zoom”!

Here’s our recap and review!

We finally get an explanation as khổng lồ where Zoom came from. The full explanation gets a little complicated so for now lets begin with the parallels between Barry Allen and Hunter Zolomon’s early life.

We get a flashbaông chồng lớn Barry’s mother death và hyên ổn being taken in by the West family following the tragedy. We’ve sầu seen this all before, but what we haven’t seen is a young Hunter Zolomon.



We shift lớn Earth-2 & see that young Hunter was forced to watch his father kill his mother. After this his dad goes to lớn prison và Hunter gets sent lớn an orphanage. A very similar origin lớn Barry but with a twist! Not a good childhood for Hunter. More of what happened next later!

Bachồng on Earth-1 Team Flash have sầu developed a Tachyon Device which Barry has attached to lớn his chest & they begin testing just outside Keystone City (another DC Comics location). The device works perfectly, it allows Barry to lớn run up khổng lồ four times faster than ever, which makes hlặng faster than Zoom!

Pushing himself khổng lồ run faster we see Barry open a portal and travel through it only to lớn appear a second later on the same road. He arrives at S.T.A.R. Labs và asks how long he’s been gone, clearly indicating that he must have time travelled or dimension slipped? Possibly khổng lồ a certain National City?

Confident he can now take on Zoom, Barry wants the device lớn be smaller and wants to lớn open a breach to go after Zoom. Wells refuses lớn help hyên because it would put Jesse và this Earth at risk và he is not willing lớn let that happen. He also explains that they currently have sầu now way of re-opening the breaches so it doesn’t matter what Barry wants.

Caitlin & Cisco have had no luck working out a way to open a breach but Barry gets a Eureka moment & realises that Cisco’s ‘vibe’ powers must have some Multiverse manipulation properties, which explains how he is able to see across worlds. Barry thinks that Cisco can channel this power (lượt thích his dopple-ganger Reverb did) and open a breach. They try khổng lồ open the old breach in S.T.A.R. Labs but with no success.

Seeing that Barry is ignoring his warnings, Wells goes to see Joe lớn try và get hlặng khổng lồ convince Barry khổng lồ stop what he is doing. Wells thanks hlặng for his help with trying khổng lồ find Jesse but Joe knows that Barry will not stop until he has defeated Zoom. Joe says that if Barry is going to bởi vì this, Wells is the best person to lớn help hlặng.

Barry và Cisteo go to lớn another old breach location & try lớn open it. Cisco still can’t vày what is needed but then Wells turns up to help. He has recalibrated Cisco’s ‘vibe’ goggles to lớn assist with this Earth’s frequency manipulation và it works!

Cisco starts opening a breach but then stops himself & asks Barry not lớn ask hlặng lớn do this! It’s a good thing too because Zoom was waiting on the other side of the breach!

Wells has modified the device he used lớn sap Barry’s speedforce into the new Tachyon device so that it is small enough khổng lồ fit under his chest emblem.

Barry goes lớn see Cisteo khổng lồ ask why he freaked out. Cisteo explains that he feels lượt thích Anakin Skywalker, he has the ability but doesn’t want to turn inlớn Darth Vader và fall khổng lồ the Dark Side.
