They tossed a lot into this episode of The Flash. “King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd” had elements of one of those bad SyFy movies, The Shape of Water, an obligatory King Kong nod, and the return of Joe West finally.
“King Shark” picks up moments after “Escape from Earth 2″ ends. Caitlin, mute, in shock, stares at the Speed Cannon where Zoom just grabbed (and probably killed) Jay as the others stand around, horrified. Barry wants to go back and help, but Wells says they can’t. All the Breaches have been closed, so there’s no way back. Mind you, Wells tends to be the pessimist of the group, but, for the moment, he’s apparently right.
