How so? Well, “Flash Back” will show how Barry got to Supergirl’s universe and also show the return of some old faces – Eobard Thawne, Eddie Thawne, and Hartley Rathaway – via time travel. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris try to tell Barry that no one could have seen Jay as Zoom. Caitlin, Cisco, and Barry dug back through all their case files and made a decision to send Barry back to a moment during season one, episode 11, in the episode “The Sound and the Fury”.
Though Barry went back in time looking for help, he’s not going home without saving the day yet again. Unfortunately Barry didn’t account for Wells being able to discover who he really was, or that a wraith would follow him back in time to kill him. As it turns out, the two-part Earth-2 adventure was only the first time two Gustins would share the screen together this year. Wells captures Barry and forces him to reveal why he has come back from the future.
When he does, Thawne brings Barry to his vault in a tense and lengthy interrogation.
“The Flash” season 2, episode 18 will reveal new information about the villainous character Zoom.
Still struggling to increase his speed, Barry is disenheartened by Caitlyn’s discovery that he may not be physically capable of getting faster. More updates and details are expected soon. Her new boss will be flirting with her, so she might give in after some time. It’s a little bit of a unusual thing to think about, but that is precisely where we are now. If Barry is a step closer to learning from the mistakes of the past, maybe it is a sign that others won’t be repeated as well. He was previously introduced on the show as Garrick’s Earth-1 doppelganger, but was deemed by Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) to be harmless and without any speedster powers of his own.
Smith – a big comic book fan – has flirted with live-action adaptations of superhero stories before (he famously penned a script for Superman Lives before Tim Burton edged him out of that project), and also has form working with The CW (he directed the pilot of their sadly-short-lived series Reaper), so perhaps his interest in The Flash shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
Barry Allen may be the fastest man alive, but let’s face it, he doesn’t always have the best schemes, and in a new clip from tonight’s episode of The Flash, he might have his worst one yet. After this particular week of Flash milestones, even Barry can afford to take a breather, just as he advised Kara.
