The Flash - Versus Zoom

In an episode that begins with a flashback to Earth-2, “Versus Zoom” gives us darker version of the origins of Barry (Grant Gustin) as we witness the tragedy of Hunter Zolomon’s childhood which would lead him down the path to taking on the personas of both Jay Garrick and Zoom (Teddy Sears).

Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is having far less fun than usual in the penultimate episode of the show’s First Season. Still unclear as to how Chloe (Lauren German) is affecting his immortality, the devil attempts to put some distance between himself and his favorite police officer. His plan is fouled up by a group of devil worshipers who perform a live sacrifice. Increasingly angered at every aspect of the case, including humanity’s view of him as a wicked goat-creature, Lucifer’s temper gets the better of him more than once, eventually getting him sent home where he has to deal with his angry brother who has a few words for Lucifer about Maze‘s (Lesley-Ann Brandt) attempts to seduce and kill him.
