The next scene goes to 72 hours before the opening scene fight. Barry has Doctor Light locked up and team Flash and Earth 2 Harrison Wells are trying to decide what they can do to catch Zoom or at least draw him out. Barry of course wants to use Doctor Light if she will agree to help out but she doesn’t do because she is scared of Zoom.
Meanwhile Joe, Cisco, and Caitlin are trying to convince Barry that Harrison Wells of Earth two has a hidden agenda or hasn’t been truthful to team Flash. He is even showing an obsessive behavior at this point with Zoom. An Obsessive behavior that I think nearly resembles the Reverse Flash.
This behavior gets Cisco concerned and he spends his time trying to get a Vibe from Harrison. Wells gets protective and asks Cisco to stop and to leave him alone. He is hiding something but its nothing as terrible as what Harrison Wells/ Eobard Thawne was hiding.
Team Flash is still trying to come up with a plan to draw Zoom from Earth 2. While doing this and creating this plan Doctor Light escapes. She done this by turning invisible and using her meta human abilities, something Spivet mentioned right before this scene. Barry just wasn’t listening to anyone he was obsessed with stopping Zoom. They had lost the main piece of drawing Zoom from Earth 2 but Barry didn’t seem upset he was still trying to come up with an idea.
Barry decided that the best option to draw Zoom out has been in front of him the entire time. He wanted to use Earth 1 Linda Park as Doctor Light to get Zoom to come out of hiding. She would use the costume and the lights to make it seem like it was really Doctor Light. Linda does get a chance to practice and eventually gets the hang of it, while the rest of the group is concerned that Zoom wont see this as the Doctor Light Barry seems to think his idea will work.
So Barry decided to let someone else in on his secret and this time it is Linda Park. His ex girlfriend someone who shouldn’t have even known that he was the Flash or have anything to do with his life outside of Iris.
The plan is to draw Zoom out and use the speed stabilizer which is created by Wells to slow him down and make an attempt at capturing him. Well’s is creating the stabilizer and Cisco is trying to help him, but is making matters worse. Cisco eventually spills some oil and while trying to clean it up he gets a Vibe from Wells. He can see a cage and someone is being held captive, and speaking with Zoom. It happens to be Jesse Quick which is Well’s daughter who was taken from her school which was seen during a flash back with Well’s. Also in this flash back we find out that Oliver Queen was the one who was killed when the boat went down and his Father Robert Queen was the new Green Arrow.
The team was now ready to back up Barry in the fight against Doctor Light. So he and Linda go to the docks and she hits him with a couple of light blasts and he falls to the ground. She grabs Barry’s Emblem and shows it to Zoom as the breach opens, but nothing happens. The team waits around for an hour and Zoom never shows. Well’s who was obsessed and ready to stop him cant believe he didn’t show up. The team ends up giving up and going back to Star Labs.
Shortly after all of this happens Linda was taken by Zoom out side of the news paper and was taken to Star Labs. By the time Iris gets the call to Barry, Cisco had already gotten the alert that Zoom was at Star Labs. He saved Linda and got her to safety, but didn’t know what he was getting himself into with a fight like this.
Zoom was angry and this was the moment he had been waiting for the fight against the Flash of Earth 1. Barry decided to use his new technique of throwing lightning, which didn’t go as well as the first time. Zoom grabbed the lightning bolt and threw it back at Barry. This was really the moment that the fight was over. Zoom was faster, and way stronger than Barry ever thought of being. Zoom had stopped Barry and decided that he was going to take him out, so he broke Barry’s back.
He then sped off to all of the locations where people could see what Central City had for a hero. First was the newspaper so Iris could see, and next the Police station and finally Star Labs.
Meanwhile Team Flash was regrouping and trying to figure out what they could exactly do to stop Zoom in the future, the speed stabilizer that Cisco shot him with didn’t even seem to effect him he just got up and sped off.
After everything had calmed down Cisco let Well’s know that he had seen his daughter in a Vibe and she was alive and safe. Barry however was not, he was in a hospital bed in a coma he woke up and seemed to be okay. However he explained afterwards that he could not feel his legs due to the broken Spine.
