Barry Allen: What are the rules?
Hunter Zolomon: One lap around the inside of this loop will produce about 1 gigawatt of energy, and I need 500-plus to power the Magnetar enough to do the job. Once it's full, I win, because there is no stopping it.
Barry Allen: So, all I have to do to beat you is stop you before that happens.
Hunter Zolomon: Yep, it's that simple - but if, at any point, you decide you don't want to race anymore, dear old dad number two is a dead man, as well as your little fan club.

it was good, its not now, ridiculous story changes.
25 May 2016 | by wrightsonartsSee all my reviews

I used to love the flash, sure there were a few plot holes , but i always thought ,"well the comics were a bit silly sometimes too, so i can accept that".......but i cant accept the ridiculousness of the recent story-line...... Barry wants to bring zoom back from earth 2 so he can destroy him, when zoom is already dying anyway? its laughable.. and now somehow zoom can bring super-humans from earth 2? but not himself? lol please stop, now in episode 2x23, they think they've won against zoom by sending him back to earth 2? well if he can bring villains over to earth 1 easily surely he can bring himself? this has become plain silly. I also find the fact that whenever jay puts on his mask, he speaks like a black man ,lol, such a BAD idea. i know its tony tod , i don't know what bright speak came up with that absurd've RUINED IT!
