Can Barry Allen survive without The Flash’s speed?
The Flash took a big hit when Zoom sucked away his speed. Not only did he lose his hyper drive, Barry Allen also lost his confidence. In this promo, he sounds like he’s throwing a little pity party for himself. Let’s hope he snaps out of his funk quickly. Not only does the team have to worry about getting Caitlin back and finding a way to recapture Barry’s speed from Zoom, the meta humans aren’t going to stop coming just because The Flash is speed-less. And, as if that isn’t enough, from the looks of it, Wells gets snatched up, too.
My hope is that Caitlin will be able use her former romantic connection with Jay Garrick, however phony it may have been to him, to tap into the teeniest, tiniest little residue of humanity he may have possessed. If she can do that, she might be able to create a little wiggle room for herself. If it was all truly just an act on his part, Caitlin could well and truly be screwed.
She’s not the only one, though. The Flash is actually asking for mercy! How many times can a slow, normal Barry go up against supercharged meta humans and still walk away in one piece?
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
