Last time out, the Flash time travelled to his own past and messed a whole bunch of stuff up. It would seem that the show is just trying to ignore the ramifications of Barry’s time meddling as no reference is made in this week’s episode to 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 deal 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 to 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 flashback to Barry’s mother death and him being taken in by the West family following the tragedy. We’ve seen this all before, but what we haven’t seen is a young Hunter Zolomon.



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

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

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

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

Caitlin and Cisco have had no luck working out a way to open a breach but Barry gets a Eureka moment and 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 (like his dopple-ganger Reverb did) and open a breach. They try to 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 to try and get him to convince Barry to stop what he is doing. Wells thanks him for his help with trying to find Jesse but Joe knows that Barry will not stop until he has defeated Zoom. Joe says that if Barry is going to do this, Wells is the best person to help him.

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

Cisco starts opening a breach but then stops himself and asks Barry not to ask him to 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 to sap Barry’s speedforce into the new Tachyon device so that it is small enough to fit under his chest emblem.

Barry goes to see Cisco to ask why he freaked out. Cisco explains that he feels like Anakin Skywalker, he has the ability but doesn’t want to turn into Darth Vader and fall to the Dark Side.
