"Look at your hero, this man is no god, he is nothing. The days of The Flash protecting this city are over. Now what will you do without your precious hero?"
Zoom declaring his victory over Barry

"Enter Zoom" is the sixth episode of the second season of The Flash and the twenty-ninth episode overall. It aired on November 10, 2015. It is the second half of a two-parter.[1]

Synopsis

After recent events, Barry decides it's time to confront Zoom and comes up with a dangerous plan. Caitlin sides with Jay and deems it too dangerous for Barry to engage with the speed demon. However, Iris shows her support and brings forth a surprising ally. We see what Earth Two Harrison Wells' life was like before coming through the breach.[2]

Trivia

  • After Barry wakes up, Cisco informs him that Linda is staying in Coast City; in the comics, Coast City is the home place of Hal Jordan, the Silver Age Green Lantern
  • The Earth Two equivalents of Oliver Queen and Robert Queen are referenced in a news broadcast that Harry Wells was listening to in a flashback, but their fates have apparently been reversed: Oliver Queen is revealed to have died in the Queen's Gambit shipwreck while Robert Queen survives and becomes The Hood, later The Arrow. This is reminiscent of the "Flashpoint" arc, which depicted an alternate timeline unwittingly created by the Flash in which Thomas Wayne became Batman and Bruce was killed instead.
  • The events of this storyline are similar to the events of Batman: Knightfall, with both stories featuring villains (Bane/Zoom) attacking the heroes (Batman/Flash) on their home territory (Batcave/STAR Labs) after wearing them down with multiple villains, culminating in the villains breaking the heroes' backs in a public location (Although, where Batman required external aid to heal from his injuries, Barry is able to heal on his own thanks to his powers).
  • Linda finds out Barry is the Flash.
