Last week on The Flash, we got the serial killer backstory of Hunter Zolomon aka Zoom (Teddy Sears). Barry (Grant Gustin) almost lost his mind with his need to save Earth-2 from Zoom. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) agreed to vibe to create a breach, and was successful with Harry’s (Tom Cavanagh) help. Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) moved in and immediately got kidnapped by Zoom. Barry sacrificed his speed to save Wally. Then Zoom kidnapped Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker).

Last time on The Flash, we got a dose of nostalgia as Barry (Grant Gustin) went back in time to get evil Dr. Wells aka Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh) to help him run faster. We got to see Eddie (Rick Cosnett) once more, and Barry got Eddie to make a love video for future Iris (Candace Patton), who had been having a hard time moving on. Past Wells figured it out but agreed to help future Barry anyway. Barry mucked it up even more so that Cisco and Caitlin (Carlos Valdes and Danielle Panabaker) found out too. His only saving grace was that he did not reveal what was in store for Thawne. We don’t know the full consequences of his time traveling actions, only that when he got back, Hartley Rathaway (Andy Mientus) was now on Team Flash.

Last week on The Flash, Zoom kidnapped Barry (Grant Gustin), and the team of Cisco, Harry, Killer Frost, and Earth-2’s Barry and Iris (Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Gustin, and Candice Patton) go to get him back. While Barry is locked in the cage, he bonds with Jesse (Violett Beane) and tries to communicate with helmet guy. They succeed in subduing Zoom (mainly Killer Frost did it), and get away. They whoosh back into Earth-1 at the last second, but as the last breach is closing, Zoom’s arm juts out and kills Jay (Teddy Sears), pulling him back with him.

Directed by J.J. Makaro

Air Date: Tuesday, February 16th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week we saw the best episode of The Flash ever, as our gang traveled to Earth-2, and we were as excited as Barry and Cisco (Grant Gustin and Carlos Valdes). There were so many little sights and clues that really brought this great series to the next level – Supergirl and the old Flash (John Wesley Shipp) whizzing by in the breach, Snart as mayor, Deadshot as a cop with horrible aim, and Earth-2 Joe (Jesse L. Martin) as a lounge singer, hating on Barry-2 for marrying his daughter. Barry steals his doppelganger in order to “be” him – Barry-2 is a super lab tech geek working for Detective West… Detective Iris West (Candice Patton). Caitlin and Ronnie (Danielle Panabaker and Robbie Amell) are in love on this earth too (2!), except they are villains Killer Frost and Death Storm working for Zoom, along with Reverb, Cisco’s smooth doppelganger. My Cisco is so much cooler though. Somehow, they escape unscathed (not Joe-2, Deathstorm, or Reverb), but Zoom steals Barry. I thought last week that the helmet guy knocking on the cage was Diggle-2, but I think I changed my mind. I’m not sure who he is.

Last week’s episode of The Flash found Barry and Wells (Grant Gustin and Tom Cavanagh) racing to close the breaches, while Wells began leeching the speed from The Flash, putting him in considerable danger. And he kept warning Barry while he was doing it. In the end, he just could not betray Barry, and confessed all. They threw him in a cell, but good guy Barry decided to help him instead of punish him, setting the stage for a trio to Earth-2. Iris (Candace Patton) tried to investigate the drag racing to try to get her brother out of it, but got hurt. Oh, and the meta of the day was Tar-Pit, and he was pretty easily defeated.

Spoilers for tonight’s “Earth-2” episode below.

Last week on The Flash, the new meta (nicknamed Turtle) just might be what they need to capture Zoom. He’s heisting all over, seeming to move fast, but only because he’s slowing everything else down – including Barry (Grant Gustin). Meanwhile, Barry seems like lame duck because he disappears in the middle of Patty (Shantel VanSanten) being in danger, only to save her as The Flash. She doesn’t understand what is going on with him. He is on the verge of telling all (thanks to Iris), but she tells him she’s going away to school. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) tells Jay (Teddy Sears) she knows he is dying. Joe (Jesse L Martin) finds out about Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) drag racing, and is the best dad ever in my eyes (anyway and always). Eobard Thawne (Matthew Letscher) is back!

Warning! Do not proceed if you are not all caught up!

Last month the fall finale of The Flash saw The Trixter (Mark Hamill) up to his usual hijinks, but this time he recruited The Weather Wizard and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). Cold warns Barry (Grant Gustin) and splits. Now while Trixter business was enough for an episode, it was really the 2 side things that floored us. One – the appearance of Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) at the door. Two – Harry (Tom Cavanagh) finally (albeit reluctantly) throwing in with Zoom (Tony Todd) for the sake and safety of his daughter.

Spoilers below.

There’s still a couple of weeks before the return of The Flash on January 19th, and this little gem almost slipped by me during the holidays. After a crazy crossover with Arrow, and then a Trixter-y, Weather-y episode that ended with a really nice Christmas for the Wests, because of the return of long lost son, Wally West (Keiynan LonsdaleInsurgent), everyone needed a slight breather from the Zoom problem. Looks like that breather is over.

Check out the trailer below.

Last week’s episode of The Flash was spectacular. Everybody was in this crossover episode. The Flash crew turned to the Arrow crew for help in saving Hawkman and Hawkgirl (Falk Hentschel and Ciara Renee) from an immortal madman, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). This episode was the first half of the Legends of Tomorrow setup. Patty (Shantel VanSanten) shot Wells (Tom Cavanagh), and Jay had to take a speed drug to remove the bullet from his heart with his hands. It was one of the funniest episodes of The Flash to date. And that’s saying something.

Two weeks ago on The Flash, Grodd was back, using his mind to bend people to his will. His goal? To make more Grodds. He mind controls Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) but doesn’t want to hurt her. he remembers how kind she was. They get Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) to pretend to be dead Wells, with Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) help, whom Grodd saw as a father. Earth-2 Wells did have a real answer. There is a Grodd habitat on Earth-2, and they send him there. The other theme is father-son relationships. Barry (Grant Gustin) is having a lot of doubt in himself, so Iris (Candice Patton) calls in his real dad (John Wesley Shipp) for the sage Rocky speech that the first Wells used to do when Barry was doing Flash-y stuff.

Beware! Spoilers for “Legends of Today” below.
