Cisco however is still having Vibes about Zoom each time he walks past Jay’s helmet. Of course Barry is being driven to find the answers to why all of the speedsters are faster than he is. Caitlyn shows Barry that he each of these speedsters are faster by almost 30%. Of course they are also all older than Barry and Eobard Thawne has been a speedster for a lot longer and has also figured out how to harness and change the speed force.
Barry attends a dinner with Joe and Iris and Wally. Wally is talking about how he has been helping a professor and going through past books to get information from past engineers on how to make their cars faster and their engines have more horsepower. This gives Barry an idea so he runs off back to Star Labs. Barry has decided that he is going to go back in time, roughly to season 1. In terms of the show it would be a year in the past. Barry assumes that Eobard Thawne (Harrison Wells) could tell him how he is so much faster and how to solve the equation to manipulate the speed force. Without the consent of Harry, Barry goes back to the moment when he is fighting Pied Piper. However this doesn’t go as planned and Barry from the past notices that Barry from the future is there. Of course Barry remembers the fight so he waits a few moments for an opening, runs in and grabs past Barry and after a battle knocks him out with the tranquilizer provided. Barry finishes Pied Piper and he is locked up at Star Labs.
Of course something is going to go wrong at this point, and this is a time wraith. Which has followed Barry through the time stream. The time wraith is tracking Barry so it first goes to Central City Police Department. Of course Barry who at first doesn’t want to go to the police department from Star Labs mostly because he needs the answer to his speed equation speeds off to save the day. He runs into Joe and Eddie. He doesn’t know how to react considering that the last time Barry had seen Eddie he had shot himself and was drug into the singularity that nearly destroyed Central City. Barry would later ask Eddie to make a video for Iris for her birthday. So Eddie made a video for her on how he feels about her.
Barry goes back to Star Labs and the time wraith follows him. Of course at this point Harrison Wells (Eobard Thawne) is now having a strange feeling about Barry at this point and it is all answered when he can see the time wraith coming through Star Labs. He takes Barry to the side and to talk and ends up hitting him to knock him out. Barry wakes up handcuffed. Wells (Thawne) reveals himself to Barry, but Barry has no reaction. At this point Wells knows that he isn’t dealing with his Barry Allen, but one from the future which is why the Time Wraith has appeared. He wants to kill Barry, but Barry tells him that there is a letter hidden in Star Labs that will explain the entire situation of Eobard Thawne to Team Flash of that time line. Thawne agrees to help Barry. Thawne reveals to Barry that the Tachion particles are how he has manipulated the speed force to go faster. He provided Barry with a drive from the computer in the time room. He told Barry that all the answers he needed was there.
Barry took his word for it, and by this time Barry from the current time line had woken up. He was back at Star Labs and there was confusion. Team Flash had no idea what was going on. They questioned each, and by this time Barry had revealed he was from the future. Wells, explained the time wraith and Barry decided that he was going to take it back to his time, told Cisco and Caitlyn to have a way to stop It and they had a year. Barry started running, but the time wraith was keeping him slowed down. Past Barry took off after him to help take the time Wraith down. He watched Barry break the time barrier and ran off.
Barry was back in his time line, and Caitlin and Cisco had figured out a way to take out the time wraith, but the machine failed. However Pied Piper was there to save the day and knew that Barry was The Flash. Which is the first change we have seen from the time travel. I hope to see more from his experience going into the past.
Barry finally faced a fear and ran back to the past to face Eobard Thawne, knowing that he may not have stood a chance at beating him had things went wrong. However Eobard Thawne’s main mission is to get back to his time and messing up any of the time lines could cause him to not get home. This episode gives me hope that Barry can get faster, build up his speed and take on Zoom on a level battle field.
We also now know that Supergirl/Flash crossover was in the future for Barry. Because he is already wearing the Tachion devices that Reverse Flash used in Season 1. He was also able to break through the multiverse onto another Earth. I would say that he is getting Faster at this point. Which he will need to be to take on Zoom so I think this is a step in the right direction.
Eobard Thawne (Wells) mentioned “other speedsters” I hope we eventually see the “Other Speedsters” he is talking about. I hope during Season 3 we get to see the “other speedsters”. I also hope the Reverse Flash saga isn’t over we have now seen him twice once as Eobard Thawne himself, and in tonight’s episode Harrison Well’s.
This episode gets an 8/10
*Harrison Wells as Eboard Thawne was great!
*Barry learning how to gain more speed!
*Gaining new members of Team Flash
*The mentioning of “Other Speedsters”
The Flash doesn’t come back until April 19th!
