It's also impressive how well The Flash balances high-stakes drama with humor, and without making most of it appear forced. It's like Buffy the Vampire Slayer minus the Whedony dialogue.

For all its over-the-top moments, the entire hour had a kind of lightness to it. It was the bounty that only a 12-foot tall metahuman man shark can bring.

What you need to understand is this: In a genre notorious for convoluted continuity, gritty reboots and decades of history...There is no explanation for King Shark.

Throw in a bad guy whose distinguishing characteristic is that he's a talking, pants-wearing shark and a major Zoom-related reveal, and there was more than enough to keep the show's momentum up leading into a month-long hiatus.

I almost wish King Shark hadn't ended with such a scene-stealing reveal, given the surprisingly robust hour that could just have easily slacked off after such a driven two-part "Earth-2" arc.

Barry must face the damage done by his trip to Earth-2, while Cisco Ramon starts to see his coworker in a whole new light...

Though King Shark may not be as menacing as Zoom, there is something about a massive man-shark that will always terrify - especially when ripping off the roofs of West-Allen houses.

The Man in the Iron Mask is certainly another Jay Garrick doppelgänger, which brings the count to three: Dead Jay, Mask Jay and Zoom Jay. Are they triplets? Is Zoom collecting doppelgängers? Are they forming a boy band? These questions require answers.

The whole story was enjoyable in the goofiest way possible, and it was appreciated. The drama after the Earth-2 return played out rather well, too.

Seeing King Shark is always a delight, but this episode is at its best when it covers emotional ground - particularly with the West family.

King Shark is on the loose after tricking his way out of an A.R.G.U.S. facility, but don't worry, we're not gonna need a bigger recap to handle all the CGI fun of The Flash's first post-Earth-2 episode.

I have absolute faith in this show. But they're going to have to do a hell of a lot of fancy footwork to earn this one. And no, this isn't just me being annoyed that they might have actually killed off Jay Garrick.

There was a lot about this episode to love but specifically it was the focus on the relationships amidst all this madness that helped ground the episode and bring everything home after the craziness of the last two episodes.

King Shark looks so awesome, the most exciting guest meta-villain on The Flash since and including Grodd.

All will be revealed eventually, to be sure, and maybe it will be worth the wait. But with each passing week, season two plays more and more like a confused and disjointed rehash of its predecessor.

Episode 15 of season two features one of Grant Gustin's best performances as a tormented Barry who believes everything is all his fault.

Only The Flash could make a sharp jumping a monumentally cool event.
