"I'm Just Barry Allen, and You're the Flash"
17 February 2016 | by SpoodermanDerpSee all my reviews

"Welcome to Earth 2" and "Escape from Earth 2" is the needed exposition for the new world in which we're introduced in which is Earth II. Although this episode does a great job in showing the vast and rich mythology and variety this show had to offer, the show kind of falls when it comes to executing some certain aspects of the episode.

The two parter sure is exciting once you read the general premise of it. Granted, it was exciting and had its thrilling moments with the help of visual effects and the set design of the show. However, this episode needed a riveting plot, not just an intriguing premise. When you think about it, did they really execute a great plot to compensate for in this two parter? The main point was to save Harrison Well's daughter but the first part had to introduce us first to Earth II and their dopplegangers. Even though the two parter made an effort to go sidetrack a little bit in Earth One, it feels as if it was uncalled for and it brought no intensity to the general storyline whatsoever. Undoubtedly the best part of this two parter was Zoom and the mystery that was shadowed upon him, yet he's incredibly inconsistent and underpowered at certain times which is really rather convenient for the screenwriters at the end of the day. It feels as if the episode didn't take risks that could've been done and could particularly have potential in providing a much more exciting episode. Granted, the episode isn't all that bad and the two parter really isn't boring, it's just that it could've been improved more especially when everything felt so ridiculously CONVENIENT and ridiculously illogical. The Barry and Barry from Earth II stuff was good and the dynamic from the team still feels pretty intact and developed. The visual effects kind of seemed iffy in Earth II (hopefully not a sign of quality reduction) but other than that Zoom and the Flash still look pretty great. The twists and subtle hints in the episode were already rather noticeable and predictable, even the final shocker was quite frankly predictable.

In the end, Earth II Two parter was decent at best, but not as much as it could've lived up to its great premise.

Verdict: 8.0/10
