Barry Allen bit more than he could chew with yesterday’s episode of “The Flash”. Prepare for spoilers below for those who haven’t seen the latest episode!
Last night’s “Fury of Firestorm” episode albeit centered on Team Flash’s quest for the next able body to fuse with the brilliant Dr. Martin Stein. However, it took a different turn in the waning moments as mentioned in Slash Film.
Without warning, King Shark seized a costumed Barry by the neck as the latter spied and contemplated on a new female interest, Patty Spivot. By a twist of fate, Patty comes across the troubled Scarlett Speedster and fires her gun on the hulking human-shark which obviously doesn’t work.
When all seems to fail, the giant meta-human suddenly falls to the ground. He gets zapped by a mysterious figure wearing a hood. The Flash comes upon their rescuer and is stunned when he recognizes that it’s none other than his former mentor/arch-enemy Dr. Harrison Wells or is it?
With the credits rolling, we come to the realization that Earth-2’s Wells is not the protagonist who murdered Barry’s mother and ultimately did not bring King Shark to Earth-1 to exact his ongoing revenge on the Flash.
In conjunction with all these theories for this story arc, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg made it public via IGN that King Shark 30-second walk-in was a high-priced appearance in “The Flash.”
“It was a very expensive 30 seconds in the show. Obviously we can’t afford to do an entire killer King Shark episode,” the producer revealed.
Nevertheless, he asserted that the tv series’ visual effects team are “the best and they really love challenges like this”.
As mentioned, a new Firestorm in the persona of Jefferson “Jax” Jackson(Franz Drameh), a former standout quarterback in high school, took on the new mantle as the “body” of the “Nuclear Man”.
Jackson and Professor Stein had to duke it out first although in an easy battle with Team Flash’s principal choice, the egotistical scientist Henry Hewitt. The character in the comic books was known as the villain Tokamak).
Expect more from Jackson and Professor Stein as they converge as one in The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow.”
