The Flash, Zoom is Coming, Sizzle Reel Released:Breakdown Below!

Wow! What a sizzle reel! The video below not only shows us Zoom unmasking himself (we don’t see his face, but a plethora of other things to come on The Flash…let’s see if we can make note of them all…

Wait…Whose Helmet?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.37.49 PM

0:01 – While this helmet certainly seems to be inside of STAR Labs, I’m not completely sold on the fact that it’s the same one that we’ve seen Jay wear in previous episodes. While they look similar in shape, design, and color, the ear wings and top dome do seem slightly different. That being said this could be an Earth-2 flashback and the lightning may be what’s making the colors seem so different.

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Barry Confronts Barry

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.39.12 PM 0:02 – 0:13 – Ah, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, Barry Allen ‘vs’ Barry Allen. It’s worth noting that the voiceover up until this point in the trailer IS Earth-2 Barry giving his trapped Earth-1 self a ‘pep talk’. Interestingly we also see a shot of Barry (Earth-1) seemingly getting ready to run…will Barry learn how to travel the Multiverse like Zoom does???

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Barry and Caitlin Go…Where?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.39.42 PM

 0:14 – I’m not completely sure that the woman Barry is with is Caitlin Snow, nor do I know where the two character’s are headed, but I’ve increased the brightness/contrast and based on ‘general shape’ I would guess the woman Barry is with is Caitlin.

Likely from Episode Unknown

Don’t Be Fooled!

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.40.09 PM

 0:14 – 0:17 – Don’t be fooled! These shots are from the last episode of The FlashWelcome to Earth-2.

Likely from Episode 2×13,Welcome to Earth-2

Geomancer IN Star Labs

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.40.24 PM

0:19 – Geomancer has clearly made his way into Star Labs.

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Jay Garrick Has SPEED FORCE

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.40.29 PM

0:20 & 0:50 – One of the highlights of Welcome to Earth-2 was seeing Jay Garrick as The Flash, and the synopsis from 2×14, Escape from Earth-2 seemingly confirms that Jay will get his powers back via Cailitn’s new Velocity-9 formula.

A shot later in the trailer showcases Jay seemingly running at full speed, that being said, his face does suggest pain, maybe he’s ‘on the Velocity’ again?

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Killer Frost v. Earth-2 Team Flash

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.40.38 PM

 0:21 – 024 – This scene was almost a given based on the other promos and the stills from this episode, but it seems that Team Flash (of Earth-2) will “convince” Frost to help them because Zoom killed her love.

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Diggles v. King Shark

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.40.54 PM

0:26-0:27 & 0:33-034 & 0:47 & 0:50-0:51 – Not to long ago John Diggle was confirmed to be appearing alongside his wife, Lyla, on The Flash in an episode that would see the two (and Barry) face off against King Shark (the Earth-1 version from The Flash:Season Zero). The brief scene above shows John making another “fast” joke, and showcases that he’s still in disbelief of Barry’s powers…and a later scene in the trailer shows the Diggle’s firing weapons at King Shark.

There is also a brief scene in which Diggle tells Barry to not let the weight of the world crush him, because if he keeps carrying it, it’ll ‘eat at him until there’s nothing left’.

Likely from Episode 2×15, King Shark

Speedster…Yellow to … BLUE???

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.41.10 PM

0:27 – This was BY FAR the most interesting shot of the trailer as it showcased a speedster seemingly running with yellow lightning….and then…the lightning seemed to change to blue… For all we know there could be two speedsters and the blue one is merely over-taking the yellow one…but the fact remains that visually, this looks like ONE speedster.

I have a strange feeling that this shot MAY be from 2×16, Trajectory and that Zoom is somehow lending speed to other humans and that speed – initially – takes the form of Speed Force speed (hence the yell0w) but begins to corrupt into Speed Zoom uses (hence the blue). In the comics Trajectory is ‘given’ speed by Lex Luthor, and that clearly won’t be the case here…but could The Flash have someone else (Zoom?) give her speed to further tie her to her comic book roots?

UPDATE: Another screen grab of this shot makes the speedster look a LOT more like Zoom, and it also seems to showcase the fact that the lightning is blue and that Zoom is running so fast the ground seems to be red hot/on fire.

Likely from Episode 2×16,Trajectory

Barry Allen, Trapped

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.50.04 PM

0:36 & 0:38 – This scene is followed by the line, “the Flash has gone rogue”…, whether or not this scene is from the same episode as that line we don’t know, BUT we do know that the line (below) is likely uttered AFTER a new speedster, Trajectory, emerges and tarnishes Barry’s name.

Likely from Episode 2×16,Trajectory

The Flash Has Gone Rogue And Iris’ New Boss

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.50.51 PM

0:36-0:37 – Tone Bell appears as Iris’ new boss at the CCPN, and – as aforesaid – states that “the Flash has gone rogue”, a line that likely comes after a new speedster, Trajectory, appears and tarnishes his name.

Likely from Episode 2×16,Trajectory

Barry Allen, Free on Earth-2?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.51.53 PM

0:41 – A very interesting shot, as it seems to imply Barry “escaped” Zoom…but what if he just…let him go?

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

Zoom Tortures Barry

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.52.43 PM

0:42 – Joe asks Barry, “what happened to you on Earth-2”, and we then see a series of shots (one above) and this one…it seems to imply that Zoom actually tortured Barry while he was imprisoned on Earth-2.

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

He’s Here, It’s Over

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.52.53 PM

 043 – 0:45 – Judging by the shot above it would seem that not only has Harry Wells come back to Earth-1, but Zoom has also followed and Barry, despite being – seemingly – tortured by Zoom is still MORE than ready to take him on.

Likely from Episode Unknown

Jesse Makes It To Earth-1

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 2.10.34 PM

0;47 – Seemingly confirming that she (Jesse) escapes Zoom alongside Barry in Escape from Earth-2 the still above showcases Jesse “Quick” Wells on Earth-1.

Likely from Episode Unknown

Earth-2 ‘Brail Room’?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.53.09 PM

0:47 – 0:48 – While the scene’s lightning certainly suggests that the room that Wells ,Barry of Earth-2(?), and Cisco are in seems to not only be some sort of bunker…but also a lot like the brail room that – thus far – has only been an ‘Earth-1 thing’.

Likely from Episode Unknown


Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.55.28 PM

Supporting my conjecture that the previous screen grabs are from 2×16Trajectory the still above showcases trajectory wearing a suit very similar in color to The Flash’s.

Likely from Episode 2×16,Trajectory

Shootout in the West Home: Run Barry Run

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.56.12 PM

0:39 &  – While we don’t know who the attacker in this situation is, we do know that the person running up the stairs behind Joe…is Barry (likely going to change into his Flash costume?) as those are the same clothes both Joe and Barry are wearing in an earlier scene in the trailer at 0:39.

Likely from Episode 2×15, King Shark

Earth-2 Cop? and Zoom?…Could this be HIS Origin?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.57.06 PM

0:51 – 0:52 – This shot seems to showcase an Earth-2 cop being breeze by with a “zoom”, could this be a flashback to the story that Wells told Barry? About Zoom’s (name) origin?

Likely from Episode Unknown

Zoom Unmasked…But Will Barry Tell His Secret?

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.58.45 PM

0:52-0:54 – While the voiceover on this scene states, “whoever that monster is, I’ll beat him”, I have a VERY strange feeling that Barry (and only Barry, not the audience either) will find out who Zoom is in the NEXT episode, but won’t reveal it to the team until much later on…thoughts?

Likely from Episode 2×14, Escape from Earth-2

    I have a thought about the helmet. On the mural in Earth-2’s CCPD, it has soldiers wearing the helmets. Jay said it was his father’s from the War of the Americas. Maybe it’s not just a cool helmet that Jay added wings to, but were American helmets with eagle wings, just like Captain America’s old mask had.
