After five episodes of operating from Earth-Two, the “Flash’s” newest big bad is making his way to the Central City of Earth-One in next week’s episode. “Enter Zoom” will bring the titular villain face-to-face with the Scarlet Speedster, a development that Barry Allen and his S.T.A.R. Labs crew have been dreading since they first heard the bad guy’s name uttered. After all, Zoom’s an evil speedster that’s already sent more than a few super-powered assassins to put Barry six feet under.
The CW has released promotional stills from next week’s episode, and they give “Flash” fans the clearest look to date at Zoom’s suit. So far the villain, voiced by Tony Todd, has hidden in the shadows or appeared as a blur on screen. These photos show the details of the suit, a suit that bears a very strong resemblance to the one Barry Allen wears, albeit totally black. The photos from the episode as well as the synopsis are below.
BARRY COMES UP WITH A PLAN TO DEFEAT ZOOM – After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) decides it’s time to confront Zoom and comes up with a dangerous plan. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) sides with Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) and deems it too dangerous for Barry to engage with the speed demon. However, Iris (Candice Patton) shows her support and brings forth a surprising ally. We see what Earth-2 Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) life was like before coming through the breach. JJ Makaro directed the episode written by Gabrielle Stanton & Brooke Eikmeier (#206). Original airdate 11/10/2015.
“The Flash” airs on Tuesdays on the CW at 8 PM ET.
