Critic reviews for Enter Zoom
Where Enter Zoom works better is in its development of Earth-Two's Harrison Wells. It was assumed the S.T.A.R. Labs founder's motivation in helping Barry and co. was to save his daughter from Zoom; and here we learn of his relationship with Jesse.
For such an important episode this season, I was hoping for a bit more to grab on to, more of a reason for me to care about these do-gooders.
Part of me wishes this episode offered a little more insight into who Zoom is and what he truly wants, but that's probably too much to expect this early into the season.
The episode does a lot of things right in bringing the main focus back into the core group, while allowing a character like Linda Park a moment to shine, and much brighter than she did in her initial few episodes.
With a big bad this big and this bad, someone we love is going to end up paying the price.
