The Flash 218 Preview – “Versus Zoom”
Discover Zoom’s origins when The Flash returns with all-new episodes starting Tuesday, April 19th on The CW!
At long last, we will be getting Zoom’s origin story! We learn from this preview that Jay Garrick’s real name is Hunter Zolomon (a name comic book fans are likely quite familiar with) and that he is a serial killer. He has no remorse for the people he’s hurt and/or killed. But Barry has gotten faster and seems to think he can take Zoom down. We all know it won’t be so easy, though.
In the wake of “Flash Back,” we know that the timeline has been messed with again, and although we haven’t seen any repercussions of that yet, there’s no guarantee Barry won’t get screwed over in some way once he faces off against Zoom. He may be faster thanks to Eobard Thawne, but now Thawne has met several versions of Barry. There’s a good chance he’s pieced everything together and, dare I say it, could even show up in the current timeline.
Zoom speaks of hope in this trailer, and hope is certainly what Team Flash is clinging to, but that scary voice and darkness suggest that we’re about to experience a terribly bumpy ride. Can Caitlin handle the emotional turmoil of her latest love interest being the Big Bad? Will Harry find Jesse? Will Cisco crack some witty, nerdy jokes? I hope we all survive yet another hiatus to find out!
