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.

While it was originally stated by Andrew Kreisberg that King Shark having his own episode would be expensive and difficult to pull off, the Flash producers managed to pull through and do it anyway. See more »

King Shark is my favorite episode in Season 2
11 March 2018 | by ivo-cobra8See all my reviews

King Shark is my favorite Episode in Second Season in The Flash. After I just competed Season 3 I must say I love second season MILES way more than Season 3, the same way I love the first season. King Shark is an excellent episode written and directed in the second season. Special guests are David Ramsey and Audrey Marie Anderson from team Arrow. That is why this episode is terrific and excellent.

When King Shark escapes from an A.R.G.U.S. he travels to on a revenge mission to hunt down the man who captured him The Flash. I love how this episode shows CGI great effect showing half man half shark hunting down Barry. With the help from Lyla Michaels and John Diggle, Barry fights in the water with King Shark to capture him.

Mostly of the episodes did mention a lot of movies like In Season 3 The Terminator and Back to the Future this show mentions Jaws and uses similar tactic to capture the shark.

Grant Gustin was fantastic in this episode he acted brilliant as Barry Allen / The Flash. Fantastic acting from David Ramsey, Danielle Panabaker and Audrey Marie Anderson. The writers did an excellent job writing this episode. I love Caitlin's ark and John Diggle's advice to help Barry. I love how The Flash trapped and stopped King Shark in the water by hitting with his lightning. King Shark is my favorite Episode in The Flash Season 2. 10/10 I love this show to death. I recommend Season 1 and 2 to any fan of The Flash Tv Show.
