So, like me, you probably watched in anticipation last night of Zoom showing up. For the first 45-50 minutes, we were left wondering just what the heck was going on. We found out Well’s reason for fighting (and probably why he is such an a-hole), more of Barry loves Patty, and of course Linda dealing with the fact in another universe she’s a villain. Then towards the end, bam! enter Zoom.
The dude is just as scary and powerful as we could imagine. I don’t think any of us could’ve guessed just how bad he would’ve kicked Barry’s butt. He didn’t just humiliate him, he beat him within an inch of his life and left him without feeling in his legs. Zoom made Eobard Thawne look like Ned Flanders.
Going forward, Team Flash is going to have a lot of questions to answer. First, they need to get Barry back up to 100%. Once that’s accomplished, they need to get Jay back. He’s fought Zoom numerous times (granted, he lost just like Barry) and can offer some insight. Plus, Central City is overrun with Meta’s and they aren’t going to take a break because Barry is on the DL (Grodd anyone?)
We know Barry gets his speed and legs back (thanks to his inclusion in Arrow’s first episode of the year flash forwarding 6 months) but does he get his confidence back. I mean, ZOOM FREAKING CAUGHT A BOLT OF LIGHTNING!!! By far this is going to be the team’s biggest challenge.
Real quick before we call it a day, at what episode does Earth 2 Caitlin Snow show up as the Killer Frost? Just food for thought.
