There is so much to look forward to in The Flash Season 2 finale coming up this week that it’s very hard to cover it all. The main highlights are definitely the race between The Flash and Zoom and the man behind the iron mask being revealed.
‘The Flash’ Season 2 Finale Spoilers
Even though viewers heard Barry say at the beginning of every ‘The Flash’ episode that he was struck by lightning when the particle accelerator exploded, turning him into the “fastest man alive,” it has not been true so far.
Whether it was the Reverse Flash in the first season or Zoom in this season, Barry’s speed has always stood second to these super-villain speedsters, reports Movie Pilot. This has led Barry to lose not only his mother (to the Reverse Flash) but also his father to Zoom in the previous episode.
A revengeful Barry is ready to prove that he is indeed the fastest man (on Earth 1 at least) and will do so by racing Zoom to the finish. According to the photos of the finale episode, released by Comic Book, it seems like Zoom has captured Joe and the only way for Barry to save his foster dad is to defeat his nemesis in a race. With the “speed force” by his side, will Barry be able to defeat zoom once and for all?
There also remains the question of the man behind the iron mask that Zoom has kept hostage in Earth 2. The creators have hinted that they are finally going to lift the mask in the finale episode and reveal who’s behind it. There are a number of theories circulating the internet regarding the identity of the man behind the iron mask. One of them is that it might be Jay Garrick, from Earth 2, which might explain why Zoom kept him imprisoned.
Another theory is that the man behind the iron mask is Henry Allen’s Doppelganger in Earth 2. This theory is as fantastical as it is perfect. The Henry Allen from Earth 1 is dead, which gives the creators of the show the perfect opportunity to bring Barry’s father back as a doppelganger version. It also lets them bestow the Earth 2 Henry Allen with powers like Barry, causing the “original Flash” to return in season 3.
Wouldn’t it be a dream come true to watch John Wesley Shipp, the original Flash, take on Grant Gustin, the present Flash in season 3? Leave your comments below.
