The Flash of Two Worlds – Major Spoilers From Tonight’s Episode “Welcome to Earth-2”

Tonight’s episode of The Flash sees Barry, Cisco, and Harry crossing over to Earth-2 to stop Zoom and get Harry’s daughter Jesse back. But that wasn’t the only crossover happening in Welcome to Earth-2. When the three are going through the breach we see glimpses of other Earths including Grodd’s new homeworld, but some of them were more surprising than others. Our first look at Johnathon Schaech as Legends of Tomorrow‘s Jonah Hex was cool but not unsurprising, but John Wesley Shipp’s Flash, what appeared to be Conner Hawke (maybe?), and a Legionnaire’s ring were Easter eggs I didn’t see coming. And we had our first glimpse of Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl, soon to be crossing over with this very show.

These were all nice little nods for the fans, but those weren’t everything the episode had to sneak in there. Once through the breach we meet doppelgangers for many of the characters, and some are so far removed from their Earth-1 counterparts that they are almost unrecognisable. We knew about Caitlin and Ronnie’s doppelgangers  being Killer Frost and Deathstorm, but evil Cisco was out of left field. His Earth-2 alter-ego was Reverb, a villain on Zoom’s team who was way more powerful than our Earth’s Vibe.

Leonard Snart was no villain but instead mentioned on television as the mayor on this Earth, and this version of Joe West may not have been a Detective, but boy could he sing at the nightclub Jitterbugs! He also hated Barry while this Earth’s Detective West was none other than Barry’s wife Iris, and her partner was Floyd Lawton, who gains the name Deadshot for very different reasons. What a great zinger against the DC film universe who wouldn’t let them use Deadshot anymore. And we met a much nicer version of S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Dr. Henry Hewitt, who became the evil Tokamak on Earth-1.

But it wasn’t just doppelgangers, there were some surprising cameos as well, sort of. While Earth-1 Barry is returning a call to his mother as his counterpart we see some familiar names on his speed dial; His parents who are still both alive on this Earth, Eddie (most likely Thawne), and Bruce, Hal, and Diana, whose alter-egos form a good part of a certain League. And the call with his mother references a trip to Atlantis; Boom! Aquaman. Though these references probably don’t mean the Justice League will be showing up anytime soon, they are still fun Easter eggs for the fans. We also learn that Caitlin has upgraded Velocity6 to Velocity8, one step away from the Velocity9 of the comics. And we see all of the cars are styled like those from the 30s and 40s, and era Earth-2 knows well.

What a great episode for fans of the comics, with a great cliffhanger, and I’m sure next week’s episode will have even more Easter eggs. Until then, here’s the trailer. Let us know in the comments if we missed anything.

The Flash airs Tuesdays on the CW.
