Welcome back to Collider’s recap show for The Flash. Join John Rocha, David Griffin, and Kaori Takee as they review season 2, episode 15, entitled ‘King Shark.’
When King Shark appeared at the beginning of season 2 it was a welcomed shock to many fans of the series, but there was little chance that we would ever see him again due to the financial cost it took to create such an incredible looking villain. Thankfully, the creative team behind this series have given us another shark infested episode for us to feast our eyes on.
The recap team agrees that Flash and Arrow crossovers are the best, so it was great to see Lyla and Diggle show up to help fight this new creature. There are times when Diggle feels like a forgotten character on Arrow, but when he’s given something to do, actor David Ramsey delivers the goods. Hopefully this is a good sign of things to come for him back in Star City.
Lyla’s presence was also a pleasant surprise this week. Much like her Husband, the A.R.G.U.S. agent won’t appear for weeks on end until it’s convenient for her to be there. She is definitely underrated and is one of the better strong female characters on both shows. Sadly, we’ll be gone for a few weeks, but what are you most looking forward to seeing when The Flash returns in March?
Series Synopsis: Barry Allen wakes up 9 months after he was struck by lightning and discovers that the bolt gave him the power super speed. With his new team and powers, Barry becomes “The Flash” and fights crime in Central City.
The Collider Video team will be back in a few weeks to tackle a whole new episode of The Flash Season 2. In the meantime, you can also check out Dave Trumbore’s full written recap of “King Shark” right here. See you next time!
