For a man who covets power and being one of the best, Zoom’s objectives, which have been revealed on The Flash Season 2 Episode 23, seemed counter productive. Why search ALL The facility solely to wipe out everyone and every place where you may present it off?

Nope. Zoom did not have what it takes to be a season lengthy huge dangerous. He fell quick in lots of areas, and in consequence, the finale wasn’t all that compelling, either.

Let’s be honest. Did anybody consider Joe was in jeopardy at any time? Henry just died. There was no means in hell they had been going to kill off Joe one episode later.

Supergirl lives on one other earth. (We don’t know the number, will we? Why did I think it was 3?) They weren’t going to destroy the multiverse, either. It is too much like the the annual Arrow episodes the place Star City is in peril from one kind of destruction gadget or another and you marvel why on earth anyone continues to reside there.

Along with desirous to race and be all powerful, Zoom additionally actually had a need for Barry to embrace his anger. I’m unsure what that might get him, however man he wished it dangerous.

Given everything Barry had been via, he was on board. Actually, we had been all on board. Since his target was Zoom, it’s troublesome to know why Group Flash wasn’t diggin’ the top recreation being Zoom’s death, however maybe it had extra to do with Barry’s ability to focus. If you cannot focus your energy properly, you possibly can lose.

No one wished Barry to lose the combat with Zoom. Of course, their own attempt to take him down went horribly, and all of it ended up on Barry’s shoulders anyway. He dealt with it beautifully.

I will never understand a time remnant and why going back in time and getting your self would not affect the longer term, particularly when those remnants perish. It was bizarre seeing Barry die in order to save lots of the day.

The reveal of the Man within the Iron Mask was executed without much fanfare. It was Jay Garrick, who’s an Earth-3 Henry Allen Doppelganger.

It was fairly cool to see John Wesley Shipp back in a Flash go well with, and if it means he will get extra screen time, even when it is not as Barry’s dad, then I’m all for it. Let’s keep him around, Ok?

Barry reacted normally to seeing him and did not work together with actual Jay a lot in any respect. However, Jay can return for visits now as they haven’t got to close the breaches for worry of Zoom coming again.

And, since Harry and Jesse went residence, if we’re ever to see Harry once more, the breaches have to remain open. I knew it was a long shot for Harry to stay in Central City once Jesse said she wished to go back.

Strangely, the season was so lackluster normally that I wasn’t even ruffled to be taught Harry was heading home. Standing aspect by facet with The Flash Season 1, while you remember on the emotional connection with the characters and the immersion felt with the storylines, there was more distance between us and the characters now.

Barry was bummed out at the top, which made sense. He even went so far as to inform Iris he just wasn’t able to explore a future with her. Whereas that was a bit suspicious, I figured he would go off to mope.

Barry had earlier advised Iris he got here to phrases with Nora’s dying whereas within the Velocity Force, so I am undecided why he didn’t go back in time to avoid wasting Henry. He discovered how to be childish hanging round Hunter and ran again in time, killed Eobard Thawne (I think he killed him, except it’s the Walking Lifeless version of non-demise dying), and saved Nora.

What the hell?

So now what? Where will that leave things when the season begins? Will Barry’s mom be alive? Are we watching Frequency already, but Barry is his own useless parent changing the long run before he runs again into it?

Saving Nora Should be too much totally different than it was to kill Eobard Thawne and Eddie at the tip of Season 1. The impression ought to be far reaching and have major implications. Barry’s whole existence might be altered, proper right down to Henry being alive, since he by no means went to prison in the first place. His relationship with Joe? Gone.

No Eobard, no dead Harrison Wells. No particle accelerator? My head hurts simply fascinated with every thing Barry may have messed up. It can be pretty cool if he flat out lost his powers while prior to now. Didn’t Harrison Wells initially create the particle accelerator later, which is why Eobard used his skin?

Maybe Barry only loses his powers when he returns, and that’s how Wally gets his powers. And, after all, Nora would possibly lastly have screen time in the present…aged?

Eh, I’m not going to try to guess more of what is coming. Possibly you all have more. I simply hope it is carried off better than this season, is not as straightforward to figure out and brings extra organic emotion as a substitute of that manufactured by shock and awe.

I should be a lot more jazzed after just having watched the finale. I am disappointed at how empty I feel. It wasn’t sufficient to carry me over until fall. Hit the feedback, and share your thoughts. Was it enough for you?

Don’t forget, you’ll be able to watch The Flash on-line right right here through Tv Fanatic till the hit returns in the fall!
