Zoom brings along an ally intent on revenge in “Rupture”
The CW has released a new synopsis for the 20th episode of The Flash‘s second season, set to air on May 3rd. It’s a spoiler-filled summary that honestly sounds exciting enough to be a season finale (though we’ll still have three more episodes to go after this):
DC COMICS’ CHARACTER RUPTURE COMES TO CENTRAL CITY WITH ZOOM – Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Wells (Tom Cavanagh) come up with a plan to stop Zoom once and for all but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipps) is adamantly opposed to Barry risking his life again but Joe (Jesse L. Martin) thinks he can handle it which puts the two men at odds with each other. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is shocked when he vibes the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who happens to be his brother Dante’s (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez) doppelganger. Rupture came to this Earth seeking justice for Reverb’s death. Iris (Candice Patton) decides she’s finally ready to open up to Barry about her feelings for him. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Kai Yu Wu & Lauren Certo.
In the DC Comics universe, Rupture is actually Armando Ramon — though he’s still Cisco/Vibe’s brother (Dante Ramon is the third brother in the comics). Between the life-threatening choices for Barry, the family drama for Cisco, and the emotional angst for Iris, this is going to be an epic episode.
The Flash returns next Tuesday at 8:00 PM with episode 2×19, “Back to Normal.” We’ll have more on both upcoming episodes as it becomes available. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest!
