Barry Allen: So this was your plan all along, huh?
Hunter Zolomon: Ever since the skies parted and showed me another world, with another speedster. Once I saw you, came here, figured out what I had to do.
Iris West: How are you still alive? We saw you die.

In "Versus Zoom" the show finally stops wasting time and focuses on the main villain - you named it - Zoom. There are some really neat moments but not all of them work. Zoom's backstory is revealed, which still remains confusing to a great sum of the viewers. To me, the episode felt like it tried to do too much in this one episode, when all this material could have been used in episodes 15, 16 and 17. Usually Flash is good with handling several sub-plots but this week something went a bit wrong. Not too much though, the episode is still enjoyable if you let specific parts slip. The highlights of this episode would be the performances of Teddy Sears and Carlos Valdes.
