The Flash season 2 episode 22: Invincible
The Flash Season 2 episode 22
Don’t Miss:- The Flash Season 2 episode 21
Henry Allen’s dead. Well, Zoom took him just to make Barry feel what he has felt for so long. I wish the iron mask man would be Henry’s doppelganger, yeah? An entire season went just to free Barry’s dad and an entire life being separated from him, and now he has to live without him. That’s cold. There’s more to come though; this episode was full of disheartening events.
After the return of The flash from speed force, there was a different confidence level in him which the S.T.A.R. lab team was worried about. Even, all of his friends tried to talk him out of it. The only one who could get into his head conveniently was Iris. Finally someone who could make him understand that a bit fear is healthy, not only for Barry but for the whole team and the city.
And boy, let me tell you, she was damn right. After the city was attacked by meta-humans from Earth-2, Zoom zips in, took Barry to where his mom was murdered and then takes his dad in front of him.
Another big element of this episode was the return of Black canary’s doppelganger, black siren. Under Zoom’s control, the meta-human from earth-2 has started to destroy central city. Moreover, Team arrow has deployed nuclear bomb killing thousand of lives. S.T.A.R. labs then develops a way to stop those meta-humans from earth-2 by creating a device whose frequency would differ from this earth helping to stop them all (yeah you heard it right, even zoom). Plan worked out really well, until zoom creates an airy breach and throws himself to his earth and in the process, Harrison wells (Earth-2) is also taken down with him. (Don’t worry, he is fine)
Well another point which I came across in the flash season 2 episode 22; I never got the point of creating the breach just like that. Anyways, while this fact was known, instead of sorting the way out to stop meta-humans and chilling, I think the team should have tried to stop these breaches from being created in the first place.
Cisco’s vision was scary in this episode. He has started to develop his vibe power just as “reverb”. At first instance I thought the dead bird would be an indication of black canary coming to this earth but later on I came to know it was the vibe of destruction of earth-2. The chemistry of Barry and Iris seems a bit dry to me, so will not go into details with that.
All said, the episode was fun to watch and I would say that nothing can beat the character of Eobard Thawne or say Harrison Wells (Earth-1) as the antagonist. Zoom seemed to be scary in the preceding episodes but since the identity of zoom was revealed, I have never felt the same. Hope his final battle with Barry forces me to think otherwise.
