The Flash Season 2 Episode 18: Versus Zoom Review
The secret origins of Zoom are explored in the return of The Flash. After discovering the way to increase his speed to match Zoom, Barry seeks help in finding a way back to Earth-2, while Wells asks for help in talking Barry out of it, fearing the repercussions of the battle with Zoom. While they do this, Team Flash learns who Zoom really is, and his identity is not only monstrous and haunting, but gives Barry an idea of how to stop him. Meanwhile, Joe bonds and grows closer with Wally, while Iris struggles with emerging feelings.
This episode does an excellent job of giving insight into the murderous mind of the season’s big bad. The complicated history of Zoom serves as an excellent mirror to our own Scarlet Speedster, giving the audience a look at a very twisted version of Barry himself. The confrontation between these two powerful forces leads to a shocking outcome as Zoom looms over the team in a dangerous way. Tune into The Flash, only on The CW!
