The Flash Season 2 Episode 19 “Back to Normal”

Things “slow” down on this week’s episode of The Flash! Powerless and human, Barry adjusts to life without his speed after Zoom took it from him, but he soon learns what a heroes true calling is after Harry is taken by a metahuman with enhanced strength. Meanwhile Caitlyn finds herself a prisoner of Zoom, who believes himself to be in love with her. Soon she’s confronted by a familiar face, but will they be friend or foe? Plus, Wally West becomes determined to meet The Flash.

The episode does a fantastic job of showing what a hero truly is. Are they defined by their powers, or by the actions they take to protect people? Just as Barry loses his powers, it feels as if the Multiverse expands in this episode, dealing with multiple Earths, doppelgängers and some big Easter eggs the passionate DC Comics fan base will spot throughout the episode. By episodes end, Barry’s problem will have a solution, but will it come at a cost? Plus, Zoom’s threat will grow larger as we race into next week’s episode. Tune into all new episodes of The Flash, only on The CW!

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!
