The Flash S2E10: Potential Energy review

*spoilers ahead if you haven't seen season two episode ten*

REVIEW: Remember Zoom? Yeah, him.

A throwaway line from Tom Cavanagh's Harrison Wells but one of the most important.

It was an easy way for the writers to dedicate time to the weekly metahuman, in this case The Turtle (Aaron Douglas), while also ensuring the "villain of the week" could be related to the season's big bad.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) spent much of Potential Energy deciding whether or not to tell partner Patty Spivot (Shantel Van Santen) about his alter ego: The Flash.

Just as he chose to divulge his secret the opportunity was taken from him by Douglas' Turtle, who not only attacked Spivot at a function but later kidnapped the detective.

Barry's "disappearance" from the function when Turtle appeared (to become The Flash, obviously) proved to be the last strew for Patty who dropped a bombshell: she's leaving.

Zoom's cameo is enough to keep fans interested but for how long can another showdown between he and The Flash be teased?

The return of an old foe in the epilogue is a tantalising prospect. 

Reverse Flash/Eobard Thawne didn't come through the portal so he wasn't sent by Zoom, nor is he from the main timeline (given his defeat last season), so where did he come from?

It leaves Team Flash two bad guys to fight for the rest of the season.

Which DC Comics television show do you enjoy most?

This poll ended on 23 January 2016.

Arrow - 36%

The Flash - 55%

Supergirl - 4%

DC's Legends of Tomorrow - 3%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

A few more things:

- Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) gets funnier every week. Easily one of the best parts of The Flash.

- Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) seems a little dodgy. He appeared to know a character who was being arrested but told dad Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) he had no idea who it was. What is he hiding?

- Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) found out Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) is slowly dying. Could she be about to lose another love interest?

The Flash airs Wednesdays at 6.30pm (AEST) on Fox 8 (Channel 108).
