In terms of advancing the story with Harrison Wells and Earth-2, last night’s episode of The Flash was great. Tarpit (who looked pretty darn fantastic in his final scene, proving once again that this show does amazing things with a TV budget) was admittedly something of a filler villain, but next week’s instalment promises to be worth the wait if the promo above is any indication.
The first in a two-parter, “Welcome to Earth-2” is described as follows by The CW:
Barry (Grant Gustin), Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) journey to Earth-2 to rescue Wells’ daughter, Jesse (guest star) from Zoom. Barry is stunned when he runs into Earth-2 Iris (Candice Patton) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin), but nothing prepares him for meeting Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and Deathstorm (guest star Robbie Amell). Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) has to take over the Flash’s responsibilities when a meta-human nicknamed Geomancer (guest star Adam Stafford) attacks Central City. Millicent Shelton directed the episode written by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and Katherine Walczak.
As you can see, there are a lot of fantastic moments on the way in this instalment of The Flash, including Barry coming face to face with his Earth-2 doppelgänger and the small screen debuts of both Killer Frost and Deathstorm.
It’s seeing the differences between the two worlds which promises to be most interesting though. It looks a lot different to the one we’re used to seeing, and that gives the team behind The Flash the chance to throw in a lot of great Easter Eggs for fans. Of course, how Zoom will factor into this mission remains to be seen for now, but we’re certainly excited about what the show has in store for us over the next few weeks.
