The first half of Season 2 of the American superhero drama TV series “The Flash” on The CW saw Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash and his team having their hands full with powerful villain Zoom, played by Tony Todd, or at least the voice for the character.
The TV series is currently on its winter break and will return to the small screen on January 19, 2016 with its 10th episode titled “Potential Energy.”
Based on the earlier previews of the midseason premiere of “The Flash,” Patty Spivot, played by Shantel VanSanten, will be in some very real danger. It seems that she will be captured by Zoom and the situation shall put Barry Allen, played by Grant Gustin, into some serious problem considering his feelings for her, details Cartermatt.
However, upon the release of the official synopsis of the 10th episode of “The Flash,” it seems that The Flash will have more problems dealing with the return of the Reverse-Flash than rescuing Patty from the hands of Zoom.
The Reverse-Flash is the villain in Season 1 and he appeared to have been killed already so it would be interesting to see how the showrunners will be bringing back the character in the second half of Season 2 of “The Flash.”
According to executive producer Todd Helbing, the mysterious return of the Reverse-Flash will affect the next few episodes of the TV series. He added that the character’s impossible return to Central City puts a member of the S.T.A.R. Labs team in an unexpected danger and will force Barry to make a life-changing decision, notes the Christian Post.
Because of the presence of two powerful villains, fans should expect a more action-packed second half of Season 2 of “The Flash.”
A personal dilemma
Another dilemma that Barry Allen has to deal with is whether or not he is ready to tell Patty that he is The Flash.
While the TV series has been consistent with the storylines in the comic books, there are occasional deviations too. Barry Allen has not revealed his identity to any person outside of the S.T.A.R. Labs team and members of Team Arrow from its mother series “Arrow” also on The CW so it is unlikely that he will bare his secret to Patty.
Another interesting plotline that fans should watch out for in the second half of Season 2 of “The Flash” is the emergence of Wally West in Central City during the midseason finale. The character is being played by Keiynan Lonsdale.
Joe West, played by Jesse L. Martin, and Iris, played by Candice Patton, will attempt to get to know Wally. There is still no indication that the show plans to make Wally into a speedster like he is in the comics, but it is likely that the showrunners are considering it in future episodes.
Zoom’s relation to Henry Allen
There have also been plenty of speculations regarding the relation of Zoom to Henry Allen. According to rumors, Henry Allen from Earth 2 could be Zoom, which was based on the theory that the face of Zoom’s physique is too large to be Barry.
In addition, it was also revealed that Barry from Earth 2 is actually a reporter, which will make it unlikely for him to be Zoom. Henry Allen had already left Central City after being freed from prison.
This speculation among many others shall be known by fans once “The Flash” returns to the small screen on January 19, 2016.
“The Flash” just like its parent series “Arrow,” has become the take-off point for the upcoming superhero TV series “Legends of Tomorrow,” to air on The CW on January 21, 2016.
It came during episode 8 of “The Flash” that aired on December 1, 2015. Officially titled “Legends of Today,” it was a special episode of “The Flash” because it was a crossover episode with “Arrow” also on The CW network.
The episode showed Harrison Wells, played by Tom Cavanagh, developing a serum to make Barry Allen run faster.
However, Wells will have the Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick, played by Teddy Sears, for a guinea pig as he tested the serum first on him before giving it to Barry Allen.
