In season 2 episode 18 of “The Flash,” we finally get to know who Zoom truly is. Entitled “Versus Zoom,” The Flash will attempt to take down Zoom once and for all.
With the help of Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), The Flash (Grant Gustin) is now four times faster and that seems enough for him to have the confidence to take on Zoom (Teddy Sears). Barry Allen asked Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) to try and open a breach since Cisco’s Earth-2 counterpart Reverb was capable of opening gates to other worlds.
Cisco was unable to do so at first but Wells offered a hand by providing him with goggles that enabled him to manipulate trans-dimensional matter. Despite the fact that Cisco’s powers has been unleashed thanks to the device, he still hesitated. Having the power to breach other worlds is a real burden and I totally agree with him. He made some Star Wars references about going to the dark side, which was fun and a bit on point too. But Barry promised to be on Cisco’s side every step of the way to ensure Cisco does not get lured to the darkness. This may have worked for Cisco but it would definitely not work on me. I believe it’s a smarter decision to keep gates to other worlds, hell or otherwise, closed.
