***SPOILER WARNING!***

The last episode of The Flash left fans with a huge cliffhanger in the form of Barry being captured and imprisoned in Zoom’s lair. Despite being the light-hearted hero, Barry’s plea’s to Killer Frost and Deathstorm fell on silent ears as they proceeded to tear up Earth-2’s Central City and kill him in the process. Since introducing the concept of the multiverse—The Flash has quickly gathered more eager eyes than any DC show previously including Smallville.

In episode 13 of season 2, “Welcome to Earth-2,” The team rushes to Earth-2 in an attempt to save Dr. Wells daughter Jesse Quick from Zoom. This ultimately left the team to track down Earth-2’s dopplegangers to acquire their help on the rescue of both Barry and Jesse. In the new featurette for “Escape from Earth-2,” producers Todd and Aaron Hellbing shed more light on why the dopplegangers are parallel to their Earth-1 counterparts—and why they are necessary.

Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon.

“At the end of episode 13, Zoom has captured Barry but they don’t know where Zoom’s lair is [and] they don’t know how to find him, so they turn to CSI Earth-2 Barry Allen to lead the way. He’s a bit uptight, but you see how resourceful [he is]. You understand he and Iris’ relationship—it all make sense in this episode.”

In this last episode, we did see the team at their weakest moments. Cisco was tempted by Reverb his doppleganger. Jay Garrick used Velocity 7 to save the day but lost his speed again. Caitlyn is working hard on a solution to his speed, and we can expect to see Velocity 9 perfected by the next episode.

The speculation surrounding Zoom’s identity can be summed up to—he’s a speedster who is connected to Barry—but how? One theory could support that Zoom is Earth-2 Henry Allen. In the DC Universe, Earth-2 had several swapped identities, as Robert Queen was the Green Arrow, and Thomas Wayne was Batman; with Martha Wayne as the Joker.

The party mood is at an all-time high.

We already know John Wesley Shipp will be returning to the 90’s Flash costume in some form from the speedforce visions. Although he isn’t listed past 2015 on IMDB, we did see this Easter egg so it is most definitely possible. Furthermore, still listed through 2016 is Barry’s mother, and Matt Letscher as the Reverse Flash. Jonah Hex, Gorilla Grodd, and several other characters as well.

One could also say that Henry Allen is the captured prisoner in the mask, as he’s been absent from the entire second act of the season, but this goes back to the IMDB listing theory. Another theory is that the prisoner is John Diggle from Earth-2 of Starling City, since he uses military coding, or he could be an older Wally West.

Killer Frost looks ice-cold and sharp like always.

Lastly, Killer Frost helping the team out was one of the highlights of the episode. She’s pissed at Zoom for killing her true love, and knows either way it’s sliced up—she’s going to die too. In the closing scenes of the episode, Jay Garrick being snatched back through the portal was pretty anti-climactic. We know Velocity 9 isn’t perfected, and his alone with Zoom on Earth-2 officially now. The worst thing is that without his speed to help him, Jay won’t last long on Earth-2 against Zoom or other speedsters. In closing, it doesn’t look as if we’ll get a proper close out to this episode since next week. We’ll be seeing King Shark, and other rogues return to Central City. If things go as planned, we could end up with the big reveal to Zoom’s identity in as little as three episodes.

Either way, feel free to give us your thoughts on Zoom and let us know in the comments!
