Tonight’s episode of The Flash, “Back to Normal,” may focus on the now powerless Barry Allen. But it’s also an important episode for this season’s Harrison “Harry” Wells. The Earth-2 doppelganger of last season’s primary villain, Harry’s not really a likable character. He’s curt, unpleasant and often selfish, yet nevertheless, he’s managed to serve as an important ally for Team Flash.
You don't have to re-open breaches in order to learn about these secrets.
Ambitious as always, Barry insists upon re-opening the breaches in order to get to Zoom—who, by the way, has a pretty tragic backstory. Harry helps Cisco fine tune his powers so that he can use them to control the breaches, and Barry uses his fancy tachyon device to get the upper hand. (Where can we get a tachyon device? Do you think they sell them at Sharper Image?) Barry’s new extra speedy skills have to be enough to stop Zoom... right?
For fans that have been patiently waiting to see Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl team up with one of the other heroes of the DCTV shared universe, the time hasn’t exactly passed in a flash. It’s fitting, then, that when they finally get their wish in “Worlds Finest,” tonight’s special Supergirl crossover episode, the hero that Kara will find herself fighting alongside is…well, the Flash.
