Welcome back to Collider’s recap show for The Flash. Join John Campea, David Griffin, Kaori Takee, and John Rocha as they review season 2, episode 6, entitled ‘Enter Zoom.’
The creative team behind The Flash delivered a season finale worthy conclusion to tonight’s thrilling episode, entitled ‘Enter Zoom.’ The horrific black masked villain lives up to the hype with a spectacular entrance on top of S.T.A.R. Labs. All of our fears about Zoom (Tony Todd) came true as he defeated Barry (Grant Gustin) with relative ease. The way he humiliated Barry was a hot topic on the recap show. Zoom dragged Barry’s body through the Central City streets and displayed him for all to see. It should be interesting to see how the city reacts to Zoom’s proclamation that Barry is no god. Perhaps the cops and news outlets will simply keep this story quiet?
On a lighter note, we were treated to some fun scenes featuring Linda (Malese Jow) impersonating her doppelganger, Dr. Light. Her training sequence with Team Flash is one of the more memorable moments from this season. Towards the end of the episode, Linda is in full “Light” mode with some horrible yet fantastic cheesy dialogue, as she tries her best to lure Zoom from Earth 2.
While the second half of this week’s outing is one you won’t soon forget, most of the recap show crew felt that the beginning of the episode fell short. Was this less than spectacular beginning an attempt from the writers to lull the viewer into a sense of calm before the epic conclusion? Find out the answers to this and more in our Flash Recap Show.
Series Synopsis: Barry Allen wakes up 9 months after he was struck by lightning and discovers that the bolt gave him the power of super speed. With his new team and powers, Barry becomes “The Flash” and fights crime in Central City.
