Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #15Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #15 takes Mystery, Inc. from Central City to the darkest jungles of Africa for a team-up with the Flash. After helping the Scarlet Speedster take down the Mirror Master, Scooby and the gang hitch a ride to Gorilla City where everyone, even Grodd, needs their help in dealing with a Gorilla Ghost haunting the city of telepathic apes.

Sholly Fisch and artist Dario Brizuela certainly have fun playing with the Flash’s super-speed (while making note of how everyone involved really should have their own television show). Choosing to make Grodd a victim rather than the gorilla behind the haunting of Gorilla City proves to be a nice twist.

The Flash - The Race of His Life

Well, that was anticlimactic. Ending the show’s Second Season on one of the weakest episodes of the series, “The Race of His Life” concludes the season-long arc of Barry‘s (Grant Gustin) battle with Zoom (Teddy Sears) with… a race? Opening with the funeral of Henry Allen (John Wesley Shipp), Barry’s friends and family decide to prevent Barry from taking revenge by imprisoning the Flash in the pipeline while they try to stop Zoom on their won. As you might expect, something goes wrong.

The Flash - Invincible

As frightened as they are by Zoom‘s (Teddy Sears) army of meta-humans ripping apart the city, his friends and family are more concerned with Barry‘s (Grant Gustin) new-found sunny attitude since returning from the Speed Force. As it turns out, neither will survive the episode. Thanks to the work of Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Wells (Tom Cavanagh), the team finds a way to neutralize all meta-humans from Earth-2 at once – including the recently arrived Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) who kicks some Flash ass before going nite-nite with all of her super-villain counterparts. As for Barry, the team’s victory is overshadowed by yet another loss as the show kills off a major supporting character leading to a big showdown in next week’s season finale.

The Flash - The Runaway Dinosaur

With the Flash (Grant Gustin) trapped inside the Speed Force his friends and family are left to deal with the consequences of the experiment to restore his speed. While Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) recovers quickly from being knocked unconscious from the controlled particle-accelerator explosion, Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) languishes in an unexplained coma just as Barry once did (suggesting her foray into super-speed crime-fighting may come before Wally’s). Aside from trying to lure Barry back from the limbo he’s trapped in, his friends also must deal with zombified Girder (Greg Finley) whose form was reanimated by the shockwave.

The Flash - Rupture

Although we see none of the Flash in action, aside from Cisco‘s (Carlos Valdes) parlor tick of using a hologram in an attempt to convince the people of Central City that their hero hasn’t abandoned them, “Rupture” may prove a pivotal episode not only in the season but the entire series. Offering the return of John Wesley Shipp, a new meta-human in the evil doppelganger of Cisco’s brother (Nicholas Gonzalez), the return of Zoom (Teddy Sears) and the beginning of his reign of terror on this Earth, and giving us the origins for two new speedsters in Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Jesse Quick (Violett Beane), the main focus of “Rupture” focuses in the internal struggle of Barry (Grant Gustin) weighing the costs of a risky opportunity to regain his speed.
