After work has been laid out by “The Flash” season 2 and “Arrow” season 4 for the superhero show newcomer “Legends of Tomorrow”, both shows can now focus on their respective story lines.
For the case of “The Flash”, the remainder of its second season will be devoting attention on Zoom as well as the Multiverse.
IGN quotes “The Flash” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg in saying:
“The rest of the season is really focusing on Zoom and the Multiverse. The early parts of seasons are really hard because you’re setting things up. But now […] for Flash, it’s Barry versus Zoom, and that’s really where the focus for [the show] lie.”
From the series showrunner’s statement above, it suggests that the first half of “The Flash” season 2 was meant to help establish a stable footing for “Legends of Tomorrow”. However, now that the third DC Comics adaptation is ready to make its debut, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) can now go back to fighting his own battles in Central City.
Meanwhile, Screen Rant points out that teasers released during the first half of “The Flash” season 2 already clued in the audience with the potential story line that will be pursued by the show.
One of the things that the website mentions is that Earth 2 will be featured more, especially alternate universe versions of Barry, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell).
Still, while the existence of an alternate universe and alternate versions of characters seem to be a good way to keep favorite characters alive on the show, this existence could also have its flip side.
According to Buddy TV, the concept becomes trickier and at times problematic to the show’s flow.
Nevertheless, it remains to be seen where the second half of “The Flash” will take its audience.
“The Flash” season 2 returns on January 19 on The CW.
