Following tonight’s incredible episode of The Flash, The CW has released a sneak peek at what’s to come next week. But before we get to that, we need to talk about those massive teases about the identities of both Zoom and the masked man who he’s keeping captive.
My theory? The man in the iron mask is the real Jay Garrick, and the one we’ve seen every week is really the Earth-2 Hunter Zolomon. As for Zoom, I think he may also be Hunter, though that obviously wouldn’t explain how he’s been able to appear on two worlds at the same time (unless he’s so quick he can literally be in two places at once).
Regardless, here’s the synopsis for what’s to come in next week’s instalment:
When King Shark escapes from an A.R.G.U.S. holding tank, Lila (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) and Diggle (David Ramsey) travel to Central City to warn The Flash (Grant Gustin). King Shark shows up at the West house and attacks Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Iris (Candice Patton), Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Barry. Hanelle Culpepper directed the episode written by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes.
It’s going to be a lot of fun seeing how Barry goes about balancing what happened on Earth-2 with the arrival of King Shark, and considering that The Flash never does filler, it should be a good one.
