King Shark from Earth-2 is still alive and held in an A.R.G.U.S holding tank. He escapes and seeks to kill The Flash and be sent home. As Diggle and Lyla bring warning and join team Flash to try to figure out how to track him and bring about his recapture, King Shark pays a surprise call on the West home (which gives Wally a poor impression of Barry). Meanwhile, everyone at S.T.A.R. Labs also tries to cope with either the resent incidents of Earth-2, with Jay's untimely death, or both. Back on Earth-2, Zoom finally removes his mask.

John Diggle: Look, Barr, when I was in Afghanistan, I lost a lot of friends - brothers - so losing Jay, I know what it feels like. Question yourself. Blame yourself for his death. And that guilt, it can tear you apart. Trust me, man, you got to get control of it, or it'll rip you up inside. Use this, man. Let it guide you, so it never happens again.

We're gonna need a bigger Flash!
23 February 2016 | by neilpatel830See all my reviews

Boy, this episode was a fun roller coaster! King Shark! Diggle! Zoom! All the emotions! King Shark looked as great as ever, and they did him justice in this episode. I loved all of the Jaws references. Diggle and Lyla were welcome guests on this week's episode. I love how Diggle is still weirded out by Barry's super speed,and then Lyla gets weirded out, too, at the end. And, finally, ZOOM! Hunter Zolomon being Zoom was one of my three theories. Here is what I think. Zoom is Hunter Zolomon of Earth 2, the man in the iron mask is Jay Garrick/The Flash aka the long lost twin of Zolomon. The Jay we've been seeing mentoring Barry was Zoom at some points and Earth 1 Zolomon at other points (when Zoom needed to return to Earth 2. Shocking reveal!
