THE FLASH Season 2, Episode 6 Description; "Enter Zoom"


The title of this one says it all, right? In the sixth episode of The Flash's second season, the Scarlet Speedster will finally come face to face with the villainous Zoom, but what does Harrison Wells have to do with it all? Hit the jump to check out the description...



BARRY COMES UP WITH A PLAN TO DEFEAT ZOOM — After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) decides it’s time to confront Zoom and comes up with a dangerous plan. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) sides with Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) and deems it too dangerous for Barry to engage with the speed demon. However, Iris (Candice Patton) shows her support and brings forth a surprising ally. We see what Earth-2 Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) life was like before coming through the breech. JJ Makaro directed the episode written by Gabrielle Stanton & Brooke Eikmeier.
This sounds like a pretty awesome episode of The Flash, but does the mention of Harrison Wells' past point to him being connected to Zoom in some way? We'll have to wait and see, but Barry taking on this "speed demon" should have major ramifications for the series moving forward...

THE FLASH: First Look At Danielle Panakbaker Suited Up As 'Killer Frost'


The season one finale of The Flash featured an intriguing glimpse of Danielle Panakbaker in full costume as the villainous Killer Frost. Is that Caitlin Snow's Earth-2 counterpart or a glimpse of what's to come? Hit the jump for a first look image and comments from the actress...





Well, Danielle Panakbaker looks awesome there, right? Unfortunately, it sounds like this still is actually from season one of The CW series rather than a glimpse from an upcoming episode! "I'm such a girl and I love getting dressed up in that look," she says of suiting up as Killer Frost in the video above. "We changed; we started working on the look a couple months before it actually shot, so our first suit was a one piece, kind of like Catwoman's. Very sexy. But it didn't feel quite right, so then we changed it to be like a top and these really cool leather pants. The hair was awesome. It started actually as a short little pixie wig and we just kept adding more and more hair, as you do. It's great. I'm really excited." It's hard to tell from her comments here whether Panakbaker is talking in general terms about Killer Frost returning in The Flash or indicating that we'll see her in the show this year. If it's the latter, then an Earth-2 doppelgänger seems like a safe bet, but we'll just have to wait and see. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts below!

The Flash: Grodd's Return To Be King Kong-Like


As we previously reported, the mind-manipulating villain Gorilla Grodd will be returning to The Flash this season and today Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg and Danielle Panabaker, who plays Caitlin Snow, teased his King Kong-like arrival.
"Caitlin plays Fay Wray to Grodd’s Kong," Kreisberg said at a Los Angeles press event. Wray played the damsel-in-distress that in 1933's King Kong. When the giant beast falls for her beauty, he scoops her up and takes her atop the Empire State Building, where he is gunned down by fighter planes.
As for Grodd, he was a S.T.A.R. Labs' test subject that gained superpowers from the particle accelerator explosion. With his new abilities he quickly escaped from his cage and sought refuge in the sewers of Central City.
When he was merely a gorilla, he developed relationships -- told, not shown -- with Caitlin, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh). "In season 1, you got to see a tiny bit of her relationship of Grodd," Panabaker added. "You’ll get to see a little bit more of that and understand their connection from before. He’s got some unfinished business with her, I’d say."

The Flash Non-Spoiler Review: The Fury of Firestorm


The Flash continues to sprint through the season, avoiding the all too common second year letdown with yet another dynamic and fun episode.
To save Professor Stein, the team needs to find him a new Firestorm partner. Caitlin is especially concerned about who can take Ronnie’s place, but time and potential replacements are limited. Meanwhile Patty and Barry’s friendship continues to grow, and Joe and Iris figure out how to deal with the newest shake-up in their lives.
This is very much a Caitlin episode, and Danielle Panabaker gives a lovely performance. This is not the hurt and sad Caitlin of season one. Panabaker excels at showing Caitlin dealing with the loss of Ronnie a second time, but in a totally different way that fits her new life perfectly.
Also worth noting are guest stars Demore Barnes and Franz Drameh as potential Firestorm candidates Henry Hewitt and Jefferson Jax Jackson. Both of them are total stand outs. As is Candice Patton, showcasing Iris’ personal dilemma beautifully. And continuing to add a funny and adorable factor is Shantel VanSanten as Patty.
But the true star of the week is Victor Garber. Stein has grown into a lovely and fascinating character, who fits in so well with Team Flash that it seems a shame for him to leave. Though of course, it will be a joy to watch him on Legends of Tomorrow.
The first season of The Flash felt like a high-octane footrace. Rather than let up, the race has continued without slowdown in season two, and shows no sign of stopping. "The Fury of Firestorm" is a delightful ride, with an extraordinary final couple of minutes that are not to be missed!

It appears that FLASH pulled off a surprise for fans of the DC universe


The Flash: Your First Look at King Shark


Warning: Major spoilers ahead for tonight's episode of The Flash.
 
Tonight saw the first appearance of DC Comics villain King Shark on The Flash.
Well, at least in live action; by the time he appears here, he'd already been in the The Flash Season Zero comic. But this is the Earth-2 version, sent by Zoom and stopped by -- ironically -- Harrison Wells.
He's a humanoid shark-man. In the pre-Flashpoint continuity he resembled a Great White, but more recently he's been depicted as a mutated hammerhead shark. Originally a Superboy villain, he was implied to have been descended from the Wild Men of Kamandi fame (his creator, Karl Kesel, was a big Jack Kirby fan). He would later go on to trouble everyone from Jimmy Olsen to Aquaman, and has served stints in the Suicide Squad and Secret Six. King Shark was rumored to be one of the characters in the Suicide Squad movie for a time.

The Flash's Andrew Kreisberg and Danielle Panabaker on King Shark and Gorilla Grodd


 
While he has previously appeared in The Flash Season Zero comic book adaptation, DC Comics villain King Shark is coming to TV -- something that nobody could have predicted.
Not even showrunner Andrew Kreisberg.
"King Shark came from...we actually put him in the comic book adaptation because we said, 'No one's every going to let us do this, and we're never going to be able to do this,' since we weren't going to be using the Squad anymore," Kreisberg told reporters during a screening of tonight's episode of The Flash last week. "We were talking about it and it was really Todd Helbing who was just like, 'Yeah, let's do it.' It was a very expensive thirty seconds of the show. Our visual effects team are the best and they really love challenges like this. We're like, 'Can we do King Shark?' Armen Kevorkian, who is the head of our team, got so excited. It was probably the thing that he sent me the most, 'Check it out. Here's how it's coming.' I literally can't believe that. That's beyond feature quality. They realize it so well."
King Shark, for those not in the know, is a humanoid shark-man. In the pre-Flashpoint continuity he resembled a Great White, but more recently he's been depicted as a mutated hammerhead shark. Originally a Superboy villain, he was implied to have been descended from the Wild Men of Kamandi fame (his creator, Karl Kesel, was a big Jack Kirby fan). He would later go on to trouble everyone from Jimmy Olsen to Aquaman, and has served stints in the Suicide Squad and Secret Six. King Shark was rumored to be one of the characters in the Suicide Squad movie for a time.
Don't expect a Grodd-style King Shark episode just now, though.
"It was just fun for us, because obviously we can't afford to do an entire King Shark episode, so the idea that he's one of Zoom's minions," Kreisberg said. "He said, 'Zoom sent me here to kill you.' He's just the latest in another line, which does mean that there is a King Shark on Earth-1, now that we've designed him."
That there was some doubt as to whether King Shark existed on Earth-1 before may raise some interesting questions about just how canonical The Flash: Season Zero actually is...but that wasn't the biggest concern in the room. When a reporter raised the point that they'd already accomplished a Gorilla Grodd episode, Kreisberg responded, "Yeah, and we have another one...in which Caitlin plays Fay Wray to Grodd Kong. It's just a question of using your dollars and cents wisely. "
"I think in Season One, you got to see just a tiny bit of [Caitlin's] relationship with Grodd," said Danielle Panabaker, who plays the character. "And you'll get to see a little bit more of that and understand their connection from before. He's got some unfinished business with her, I'd say."

The Flash: Wally West's Relationship to Iris Confirmed


Warning: Spoilers ahead for both tonight's episode of The Flash and future episodes. Do not read on if you don't want to know.
During a screening of this week's episode of The Flash, titled "The Fury of Firestorm," last week, showrunner Andrew Kreisberg met with reporters to discuss the big revelations from tonight's episode -- including the nature of Wally West's connection to Iris.
Is that enough spoiler room?
Okay, so as we learned tonight, Iris's mother was pregnant when she left. She has a son. And as you've probably guessed, that's Wally West.
And, yes, it's Joe's son. So Wally is a heretofore-unknown full-blood brother of Iris West.
"We sort of had this idea, just like with any of the shows that we do, we kind of have these ideas in the previous season. We always knew we were leading up to this," Kreisberg said. "We always hated on TV shows where it's year two and somebody's, 'Well, Cousin John's coming,' and it's like, 'Oh, good old Cousin John,' who no one ever mentioned before. It was weird, the notion that they don't know Wally, and that was sort of where it came from. That was the idea that Francine was still alive and then that whole storyline."
And Iris, of course, spent much of last season pretty upset about the secrets that Joe and Barry were keeping from her...but now, she's responsible for keeping Francine's secret, and she doesn't like that, either.
"Iris is now in the position that Barry was in last season year," Kreisberg said. "She is keeping a secret to protect somebody. She's going to find that for all of her anger at Barry and Joe from last year, keeping this secret is not going to be so easy. It's going to be weighing on her before she finally decides to take some action in an upcoming episode."
More on that, one assumes, coming up soon...!

The Flash: What's Next For Cisco? Andrew Kreisberg and Carlos Valdes Answer


 
While tonight's episode of The Flash belonged to Franz Drameh's Jay "Jax" Jackson -- the new Firestorm -- there was no shortage of teasing what's coming up for Cisco Ramon, Barry's tech guru and recently-revealed metahuman known to comic book fans as the onetime Justice Leaguer Vibe.
Since Cisco's abilities started to manifest late last season, fans have wondered if and when we'll get a version fo Vibe who will suit up and join Barry on adventures -- but so far, he hasn't even been able to bring himself to reveal his abilities to his closest friends.
That's something Professor Martin Stein -- the other half of Firestorm -- has encouraged him to do...but will he?
"I don't want to give too much away, but yeah," showrunner Kreisberg said following a screening of tonight's episode in Los Angeles last week. "One of the things for him is this evil man said, 'I gave you this gift,' and he's seen what happened to the other metahumans. Good or bad intentions, they all go nuts and they all get locked up. Cisco's really scared. He doesn't see what the benefit is yet. He doesn't see that it really is a gift and he doesn't see that it is a blessing and a power that can be used to help people. Right now, all he sees is the nightmare. That's what's really scary for him."
"All I know is that we're really hinting at some stuff from the Vibe lore, so things look good," said actor Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco, when asked about the possibility of suiting up during a recent visit to the set of The Flash. "I haven't' heard anything. I don't even know if that's in my future, so I don't like to make assumptions."
The nature of the power, too, plays into Cisco's reluctance to share his secret with the team and pursue his potentially-great destiny.
"It's not like he woke up and he can fly," Kreisberg added. "Not only is he scared about what it means to be a meta-human and all of that. He also feels like he drew the short straw. 'Barry got super speed and Ronnie gets to fly and me, I get these blinding headache nightmare visions of people being killed.' It's not at first blush the most heroic way to step into the world."
"I guess when you think about it objectively, on paper, considering that Cisco is such an eager personality, you would think he would be geeked about something like that happening to him," Valdes said. "But I think what the writers have done is actually much more interesting; they're flipping the expectation on its head and Cisco actually isn't responding well to what's happeing to him. It's not a good thing for him and he's very scared, and he doesn't know how to handle it. I like that."

He's Baaaack! THE FLASH Season 2, Episode 7 Description; "Gorilla Warfare"


It was recently revealed that Gorilla Grodd is going to rear his ugly head in The Flash again this year, but did you expect it to be so soon after that King Shark cameo? Hit the jump for all the latest details on this fan-favourite's sure to be awesome return to Central City...



GORILLA GRODD RETURNS TO CENTRAL CITY — Grodd returns to Central City and kidnaps Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker). Barry (Grant Gustin) and team race to find her before it’s too late.Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) plans his first date with the new barista at Jitters, Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée) and Patty (guest star Shantel VanSanten) begins to suspect Barry is hiding something from her. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing &Todd Helbing.
Cisco and Hawkgirl? That's going to be an interesting paring! The big reveal here of course is the fact that Gorilla Grodd is set to return, though we had already heard that he'd be coming back with his sights set on Caitlin. It should be fun to see how much he's evolved though and whether or not this episode serves as a way of having Grodd serve as the big bad of season three of The Flash...

The Flash: How The New Firestorm Will Be Different




While The Flash is currently using its dimensional breach to introduce different versions of certain characters (such as Harrison Wells), we also just got to meet the second Earth 1 version of Barry’s superhero compadre Firestorm. Some out there have been wondering why the show’s creative team decided to introduce a new version of that character, and how he'll be different from what we've seen from the hero so far, and you might not be surprised to learn that it has a lot to do with the comics.

Here’s what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about what Jax is bringing to The CW’s shared DC universe, according to IGN.
Here you got to see the camaraderie and when you guys get to see Legends, you’ll gonna get to see a lot more of the ‘What the hell are you talking about? Why are we doing this?!’ while they’re merged, so there’s a lot more room for comedy with the Firestorm character than we’ve previously had before.
You guys remember that time that Ronnie made everyone laugh with his killer jokes? Me either. It’s still a little too early to tell if Franz Drameh’s Jax Jackson is going to be a hit on the show, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was. The actor looks more mischievous and fun-loving while in Firestorm’s glow-eyed mode, and I think he’ll be a great compliment to Barry’s still-learning hero, especially with Stein there to offer some guidance.

According Kreisberg, the writers seemingly backed themselves into that unfunny corner themselves in the way they adapted Firestorm for the small screen, and they're happy to take a new approach to the time-honored comic character.
What worked so well in the comic books was the idea that they were so different, Stein and Ronnie. In the comic books, Ronnie was a jock. He was a dumb jock. Obviously, Robbie [Amell] and the character we created for our Ronnie was an engineer and was more mature and has a girlfriend and his more of an adult. So the idea of a second Firestorm being somebody who is just sort of in his early 20s and somebody who was radically different from this Firestorm.
That makes a lot of sense. While there are undoubtedly people out there who adored Robbie Amell’s Ronnie, he always felt way too serious to me to be in this often light-hearted show. It probably had something to do with him seemingly coming back from the dead after being gone for a while, but still. He and Caitlin were an okay couple, and his death was definitely shocking, but I don’t think the show has suffered for it. And there's definitely nothing wrong with adding more jokes and funny dialogue to this show.

Understandably in this modern world where cultural awareness is at an all-time high, Kreisberg says that they’re also glad to introduce a new African American superhero to the world, which is a difference in and of itself, so that new generations of kids growing up with The Flash will know this version of Firestorm early on. Hard to find anything wrong with that.

It’s unclear just how many more times we’ll get to see Firestorm II on The Flash each Tuesday night, but viewers can look forward to seeing him on a weekly basis when Legends of Tomorrow premieres early on in 2016.

It’s still a little too early to tell if Franz Drameh’s Jax Jackson is going to be a hit on the show, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was. The actor looks more mischievous and fun-loving while in Firestorm’s glow-eyed mode, and I think he’ll be a great compliment to Barry’s still-learning hero, especially with Stein there to offer some guidance.

According Kreisberg, the writers seemingly backed themselves into that unfunny corner themselves in the way they adapted Firestorm for the small screen, and they're happy to take a new approach to the time-honored comic character.
What worked so well in the comic books was the idea that they were so different, Stein and Ronnie. In the comic books, Ronnie was a jock. He was a dumb jock. Obviously, Robbie [Amell] and the character we created for our Ronnie was an engineer and was more mature and has a girlfriend and his more of an adult. So the idea of a second Firestorm being somebody who is just sort of in his early 20s and somebody who was radically different from this Firestorm.
That makes a lot of sense. While there are undoubtedly people out there who adored Robbie Amell’s Ronnie, he always felt way too serious to me to be in this often light-hearted show. It probably had something to do with him seemingly coming back from the dead after being gone for a while, but still. He and Caitlin were an okay couple, and his death was definitely shocking, but I don’t think the show has suffered for it. And there's definitely nothing wrong with adding more jokes and funny dialogue to this show.

Understandably in this modern world where cultural awareness is at an all-time high, Kreisberg says that they’re also glad to introduce a new African American superhero to the world, which is a difference in and of itself, so that new generations of kids growing up with The Flash will know this version of Firestorm early on. Hard to find anything wrong with that.

It’s unclear just how many more times we’ll get to see Firestorm II on The Flash each Tuesday night, but viewers can look forward to seeing him on a weekly basis when Legends of Tomorrow premieres early on in 2016.
Based on how the episode ended, I am hoping they have plans on showcasing what Firestorm can really do. He isn't just flaming dude.

most likely in Legends of Tomorrow (this could be good)

Quote:
Firestorm has the ability to rearrange the atomic and subatomic structure of inorganic matter, rearranging subatomic particles to create objects of different atomic characteristics of equal mass. He can not only change and transmute the atomic composition of an object (e.g., transmuting lead into gold of equal mass) but he can also change its shape. He initially could not, however, affect organic matter without painful, even lethal, feedback. As Jason Rusch became Firestorm however, that weakness had all but dissipated. With old and new variations the organic limitation does not extend to his person as he can change himself at will, allowing him to regenerate lost and damaged tissue, boost his immune system, shapeshift, and survive indefinitely without food, water and air. Much like a Green Lantern's limitations, Firestorm can only create items whose workings are understood by the "driver" of the Firestorm matrix. Unlike a Green Lantern's creations, Firestorm's alterations are permanent unless he reverses them.[1] Following Raymond's resurrection during Brightest Day, Firestorm gained the ability to switch "drivers" between Ronnie and Jason at will; before that only the active driver was in control, with the dormant consciousness only able to advise the other on what action to take rather than do anything themselves.
Firestorm has also demonstrated the ability to fly at fantastic (but unmeasured) speeds, to render himself intangible and thereby pass through solid objects harmlessly, to generate destructive and concussive blasts of fusion energy from his hands, to absorb radiation harmlessly, and superhuman levels of strength and resistance to injury.

Our Best Look At 'Zoom' Yet Via These Images From Next Week's THE FLASH


The CW has released a huge batch of stills for next week's episode of The Flash, "Enter Zoom", and they provide a detailed look at the creepy supervillain, who is voiced by Candyman actor Tony Todd. There's also pics of Harrison Wells, Linda Park, and of course, Barry Allen himself...

Flash Star Grant Gustin Weighs in on Zoom's Secret Identity


(Photo: The CW) No one expects a member of The Flash's cast to just outright give up Zoom's secret identity. After all, they all held back on Reverse Flash, and he was just a time-traveler, not a character who is possibly/probably a doppleganger from a parallel universe!
But that doesn't mean Grant Gustin, who stars in The CW's hit as Barry Allen, and his castmate Carlos Valdes (Cisco) can't give some teases, as they did for EW ahead of this week's new episode titled, "Enter Zoom."
"It's very clear in Tuesday's episode that Zoom is not a threat to be taken lightly," Valdes told them. "It's definitely a slow burn because of the magnitude of this evil. Cisco and Barry know together that the best way to take down this villain is to think things through, and to work together to really give it time, and to train."
Barry comes face-to-face with the dark speedster tonight, and Gustin said, "It becomes immediately clear to Barry, 'Maybe I'm not ready for this.' It's pretty scary. It's going to be one of the more disturbing things, I think, that the viewers will have seen happen to Barry."
As far as who's behind the mask, well, Gustin covers all his bases. After joking that he thinks it's "Felicity" from Arrow, he goes down the list. "A lot of people think it’s Henry Allen [John Wesley Shipp], some people think It’s Eddie Thawne [Rick Cosnett], some people think it’s Barry from Earth-Two."
"There are infinite possibilities, really. It could turn out to be a number of characters," he teased. He also claims he doesn't know who's under the mask. "I don't really know the answer, so I'm not sure."

The Flash Recap With Spoilers: Enter Zoom


(Photo: The CW)
 
The episode opens on a battle between The Flash and Doctor Light, in which Doctor Light quickly gets the upper hand and then repeatedly batters him with her powers, stealing the logo off his chest and leaving.
In a cell in the pipeline, Dr. Light begs Barry to let her go into hiding. He wants her to know how to find Zoom. She says she was supposed to throw something through the breach to signal Zoom, and then he would come to collect the body.
At S.T.A.R., Wells-2 thinks he knows a way to stop Zoom by blasting him with a weapon he wants Cisco to design as a delivery device for an anti-speed serum. Joe agrees, but after Barry leaves, Joe asks Cisco to "vibe" on Wells.
Wells flashes back to Earth-2, where he's yelling at someone over the phone when his daughter comes in. Her name is indeed Jesse...and she's here to ask if it's really true that the particle accelerator created the metahumans.
She doesn't understand why her father hated Jay, whom she thinks is a hero. When he tries to give her some platitudes to justify his behavior, she leaves upset.
At the Central City Police Department, Patty is excited about an idea she has on how to find Doctor Light, but Joe tells her the case is closed, and won't explain why. Barry comes to see her as Joe leaves, and the two flirt, making loose plans for a second date.
At the Central City Picture News, Linda asks Iris about the metahuman who killed Larkin. She wants to talk to The Flash, and wants to help apprehend Dr. Light.Iris says she'll talk to him but that The Flash has everything under control
Cisco heads to the pipeline to bring Dr. Light her food, but she's used her powers to become invisible, stripped her clothes, and is escaping.
At S.T.A.R., Barry is upset that Light is gone, and the team is all disagreeing on what to do. Barry is determined to find a way to finish the plan they already had, while Joe tries to convince him to change the plan and incorporate Jay.
In Cisco's lab, he tries and fails to get a vibration on Wells, who calls him on it, yells at him and then flashes back to the day a metahuman attacked his daughter's college and kidnapped her.
At the Police Department, Patty admits to Joe that she and Barry kissed. She's worried he's unhappy about that, but he says no. She tries to coax information out of him and he doesn't give her anything.
When Barry goes to see Linda at Iris's house, he and Iris concoct a plan to use her as bait by pretending she's Doctor Light. Iris takes her to S.T.A.R., where Barry comes out dressed as The Flash to make the pitch.
Later, they're setting up a trap for Zoom, including using Doctor Light's weapons to create dummy blasters for Linda that have a lower yield in terms of power. She's bad at using them, taking out a number of the wrong dummies in an obstacle course they set up for her and at one point they even short out and start to burn. Eventually she gets the hang of using the powers, and using them correctly, and then Barry is ready to go. Everyone except Barry and Wells hate the idea, but Barry is fixated.
In the elevator, West accuses Barry of going after Zoom so aggressively to overcompensate for the way things went with the Reverse-Flash. Barry isn't happy about it. He goes to Linda's house (as The Flash) and when she says she can't do it, he gives her a pep talk. When she intimates he doesn't know her, he unmasks for her.
At S.T.A.R., Cisco thanks Harrison for his help, then there's a spill. When the two both rush to clean it up, they touch, and Vibe sees Zoom interrogating Jesse in her cell.
At the Police Department, Patty goes to Joe about Doctor Light again. She tells him that he's not being honest with her and she's not happy about it. After he leaves, saying he needs a few days, she asks Barry to dinner and Barry says he has plans with Joe. He asks her to dinner tomorrow, and she says yes, but is clearly suspicious.
That night, the battle from the start of the episode plays out just like before, including Light taking him down and taking his logo...although this time, it's a bit less convincing until they get into their groove. She yells to Zoom that she did what he wanted, and throws the logo into a breach.
When nothing happens after an hour, Barry gets up and the team starts to pack it in. Wells is pissed, knocking things around with his gun. Barry admits to Joe that there was something about the Reverse Flash: Wells told Barry on that tape that he still wins because Barry will never really be happy. Ever since he didn't save his mother, he says there's been a void in him that's always going to be there. Joe tells him to forget about all of that, and that Barry is responsible for his own happiness. He tells him to chase what he wants. Barry acknowledges him but doesn't seem to really be listening.
At the police department, Barry approaches Patty, who is watching a video on her phone. He ignores it and kisses her, and the two decide they should get to know each other more.
At the Picture News, Linda is sitting at her desk when Iris brings the two of them beer. She's bummed that she can't write a story about everything that happened the last few days. Iris tells her you never get used to it. The two of them get ready to leave, and as Linda leaves the office, she finds herself face to face with Zoom, who grabs her and vanishes. Iris sees it happen and runs after her screaming. At S.T.A.R., Barry gets a call just as Wells's sensors start to go off. Zoom has Linda on the roof; he holds her over the edge, and then drops her and Barry saves her by running to the ground and creating an updraft. Zoom comes down to face him and the two stand off in front of the building.
Barry runs a giant circle around S.T.A.R., building up enough energy to throw lightning at Zoom. Zoom dodges it, grabs it and throws it back at Barry. Wells heads outside with his gun. Barry has the serum in his hand, and taunts Zoom to get him to chase him. Barry gets to the top of a building an djumps off, taking Zoom's speed out of the equation by effectively making both of their speed terminal velocity. It doesn't work, and Zoom is about to kill Barry when Wells shoots Zoom. he misses, though, and Zoom hits Barry with the dart, then turns to Wells and says he's next. He brings Barry, powerless and bloodied, to the Picture News office, and then to the Police Department, to taunt them. A hail of bullets at the police station are all caught and discarded, then Zoom takes Barry and leaves.
Finally, Zoom heads to S.T.A.R., where he confronts Wells. He unmasks Barry and then stabs him with his claws. When he's about to kill Barry, Cisco blasts him with the speed-dampening serum, but all it does is cause Zoom to run.
Barry's on a hospital bed later, and Joe is ready to take Wells's head off when Cisco asks who Jesse is. Wells reveals that he's only there to capture Zoom, not to hurt Barry, but he can see Barry can't help him.
Later, Barry wakes up and asks about Linda, who's staying with friends in Coast City. Barry tries to get up, but the team won't let him. He realizes he can't feel his legs.

So Harrison Wells is on this "Earth" but he walks into Star Labs with the Reverse Flash costume on (NZ preview) How in the hell does he have that costume, unless he was snooping around Eobard/Well's space at the lab and found a suit
