‘The Flash’ 2×18 Promotional Photos and Synopsis: ‘Versus Zoom’

Zoom’s origin story will come to light on the next episode of The Flash.

The CW has released promotional photos and an official synopsis for episode 18 of The Flash season 2, which is titled “Versus Zoom,” which airs on April 19, that features a confident Barry Allen ready to take on the sinister, powerful Zoom in the same hour that we learn Hunter Zoloman’s painful backstory on Earth-2.

In the first look photos, we get a look at Team Flash prepping for Barry’s big showdown with Zoom, as well as what happens when Cisco is able to open the breach to Earth-2 and the team comes face-to-face with Zoom since learning the truth about his true identity.

Here’s the synopsis:

BARRY IS READY TO FACE ZOOM; HUNTER ZOLOMAN’S STORY IS REVEALED – Equipped with the tachyon device, Barry (Grant Gustin) believes he is fast enough to stop Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) and wants to open the breaches to catch him. Harry (Tom Cavanagh) strongly advises against that plan but after Barry convinces him, Harry reveals that Cisco (Carlos Valdes) has the power to re-open the breach. Meanwhile, Hunter Zoloman’s (Teddy Sears) painful story on Earth-2 is revealed.

The Flash returns with new episodes on Tuesday, April 19 on The CW.
