Extended Promo For The Flash Features A Major Zoom Revelation


The CW has released an extended promo for next week’s episode of The Flash, and it revolves around the arrival of Earth-2 Harrison Wells on Earth-1. As well as offering some insight into how this version of the character differs to the one we later learned was really Eobard Thawne in disguise, there’s a huge revelation included when Wells admits to being responsible for the creation of Zoom.

What he means by that isn’t clear, though it could be that he’s simply referring to the explosion of the particle accelerator on Earth-2. Also of note is Wells telling The Flash that Zoom has “infected” his world, hence why he came through the wormhole. Thrown in a brief glimpse of Dr. Light – a woman in this continuity rather than a man – and it’s apparent that this episode is going to be a big one.


Here’s the synopsis for the episode, which is titled “The Darkness and the Light”:

Barry (Grant Gustin) learns a new breacher, Dr. Light, has come through the portal and sets off to capture her. Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) tells Barry that Dr. Light was not a threat on Earth-2 and that Barry can reason with her. However, during a fight with The Flash, she blinds him and drops some shocking news about Zoom. Meanwhile, Barry and Patty (Shantel VanSanten) go out on a date.

It’s interesting that there’s no mention of Wells there, especially as he’ll clearly be playing a key role in this instalment of The Flash. Regardless, it’s going to be very exciting seeing how this story unfolds next week.
