He wanted to avenge Jay’s death and that meant going after King Shark which was the last of Zoom’s Meta Humans that was sent after Barry.
Cisco was also having some of those same feelings except his was fear for Caitlin. He had seen the Caitlin from Earth 2 which had become Killer Frost, not to mention the fact that he had watched Reverb his doppleganger be killed by Zoom. The creepy thing is Reverb died the same way that Cisco was killed by Reverse Flash with the hand through the chest. Cisco was afraid for Caitlin, because she had already lost so much that she could possibly start down a path just like Killer Frost. Caitlin was acting strange but it was just because she had lost Jay and Ronnie not even a year apart. She felt like she was just losing people and it wasn’t stopping anytime soon.
Barry was ready to take out King Shark he wanted to stop the non sense with Zoom and cut all ties with the mess of Earth 2. He was however going to have an issue with stopping him. King Shark is huge and can easily take Barry down, even though Barry is fast. So again Barry will have to turn to team Flash for help. This time Lyla and Diggle will be there to save Barry and company and help him out with stopping and capturing King Shark, which I hope is a build up to an Arrow/Flash Crossover!
Cisco and Caitlin are assigned with going to talk to the Dr. Tanya Lamden who is the Earth 1 wife of the man who would become King Shark on Earth 2. Dr. Lamden was a Marine Biologist and had been studying sharks and how they were effected like King Shark was, and Team Flash wanted her research. This research would help Barry and company catch King Flash and stop him from attacking Central City. Barry had to have all the help he could get because he knew King Shark was there to kill him.
Barry was with Iris,Joe and Wally at the West home helping Wally work on a college acceptance project. Wally seems to hate Barry because he had the life Wally never did. He got to grow up with a dad, and a family. Wally hates him for having the life with Joe that was supposed to be his. The way Wally seen it was that Barry was Joe’s golden boy and could do no wrong. Joe would eventually explain to Wally what kind of life Barry had, and that he had to take him in or he would have been an orphan.
Barry , Joe, Iris and Wally would be witness to an attack of King Shark. King Shark tore through the roof of the house searching for the Flash. Barry of course had to run off and change into his Flash costume to confront King Shark. Wally noticed that he had been missing through the ordeal. The fight would go to the street to draw King Shark away from Joe, Iris, and Wally. Barry was doing everything he could to protect his family from being killed. He however could not keep himself from getting hurt, King Shark hit Barry and threw him into a car which hurt his ribs. King Shark escaped, but not without giving Team Flash an idea on how to fight him and capture him. Team Flash figured out that King Shark was able to track Barry by the Electricity he puts off which would be the way that they would catch him. Cisco would build a Flash Dummy that would put out the same electricity that Barry does and use it to lure in King Shark. Barry would run out onto the water with King Shark in a pattern to avoid being capture, building up enough momentum to start electrifying the water.
Barry made sure he was at a safe distance before electrifying the water, and he started building up the momentum so that he could throw a lightning bolt at King Shark. Barry hit King Shark with the lightning bolt knocking him out and was finally able to make the capture. He would hand over King Shark to Lyla and Argus so they could hold him. Which didnt seem like a good idea considering that he was being held captive at Argus and escaped, but if i was Barry I wouldn’t fight with Oliver’s crew even for a speedster Oliver is still bad news.
This however would finally put an end to the meta humans tracking and trying to kill Barry Allen. He had taken out the last of the crew that was after him and was finally putting Earth 2 behind me for now anyways. I mean this is all well and good but would kind of kill the story to right off Earth 2, all except for Zoom. I mean why not keep sending the Meta’s after Barry this could make him stronger and faster, which is exactly what Zoom wants.
Speaking of Zoom, he was finally revealed! The scene he was revealed in was when he was dropping Jay Garricks body to the floor in his lair. The camera turns as his mask comes off and its none other than Hunter Zolomon. He looks just like Jay. Which Hunter Zolomon if you remember should look just like Jay Garrick. We had seen Jay and Caitlin visiting the park were Hunter Zolomon was, supposedly the dopple ganger of Jay on Earth 1. This was a good way to introduce Zoom and who he was, because now we know he looks like Jay and this could for sure mess with Team Flash, and Barry.
*Zoom is revealed!!
*Wally finally accepts that Barry isn’t perfect
*King Shark was an awesome Villain.
*Cisco and Barry finally admit that they had some emotional attachment to Earth 2.
*Jesse seems to be accepting Earth 1 and her new friends.
Even the slow episodes of Flash such as this one as story fillers are great! We didnt see much of the main story line which is Zoom wanting to get Barry’s speed, but we did see Barry taking down a meta in King Shark which means he is getting stronger. We also seen something in Barry that had been lacking since Zoom Attacked him which was confidence that he could get the job done. IF Barry wants to stand a chance against an overpowering Zoom, in all reality he should call Superman, but he would need to have confidence to get faster and stand up to Zoom to take him down. This fight will be a lot different than his final show down with Reverse Flash. It could get bad for Team Flash and Barry before it gets better.!
Trajectory will be the next episode on March 22nd! I’m Counting the days!
