Why stop when I am on a run? So, let’s also talk about the Flash Season 2 Premiere. Like always, beware of Spoilers ahead!!
The Flash Season 2 Premiere takes place a couple months after the occurrence of the singularity. The public is celebrating the Flash, wanting to give him the key to the city, but Barry has retreated into himself. He’s turned into a lone wolf, because he blames himself for the past events. But the team won’t give up on him
Here’s the break-down:
- The team is divided. Barry thinks he can take on the world by himself, but he couldn’t defeat the weekly villain by himself. He blames himself because he couldn’t stop the singularity and Firestorm had to step in. They had to separate in the eye of the storm and that lead to Ronnie dying “again” and only Dr. Stein getting saved. He’s a funny addition to the team and has sort of assumed the role of Dr. Wells. Cisco even let him pick out a name – that has to mean something. But Garber has also signed up for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, so while we will definitely get to see a lot of him in the future it’s not necessarily on the Flash.
- Caitlin left STAR labs after the incident, but she wasn’t mad at Barry, she blamed herself instead. So, basically everyone felt guilty somehow. As Joe said in the end, everyone made their own decisions that day (also poor Eddie) and they therefore equally share the blame.
- Wells is apparently not entirely evil because his last will is a video in which he admits to the murder of Nora Allen and exonerates Barry’s father. Yet, Henry decides to leave, which makes Barry very sad but gives him the chance to mature.
- The real big event took place in the last seconds of the show though. Jay Garrick (played by Teddy Sears) appears and warns the gang about what’s to come. He was the Flash in his own universe and apparently will become something of a big brother to Barry since he has a lot more experience.
While I really do like the Flash, it wasn’t one of my most anticipated returns of the season. I think the first episode set up some interesting things for the rest of the Season, but we will have to see in which direction it will really go. What did you think of the first episode of Season 2 of the Flash?
