The Flash: Season 2 so far! And Episode 16 promo

After catching up on the second season of The Flash in one LONG binge watching session, I was left speechless by the end. New plot twists just kept appearing one after the other in unbelievable ways and kept me watching through the emotional roller-coaster. I can't believe what it must have been for the characters if they were real.

If you haven't seen the second season yet be sure to check out the trailer below and don't read on! Unless you want spoilers of course...

So to start, it certainly took me a while to wrap my head around the concept of there being different Earths and universes which could be travelled between. But I finally understood! With the appearance of another Flash, a.k.a Jay Garrick, (played by Teddy Sears) from Earth 2, I felt something was wrong, especially when he was someone whose speed force had bee stolen. With the new arch-nemesis, The Flash brought back what it had lost after the death of Reverse Flash, someone who was Barry's focus to get even faster to be able to beat!

Jay Garrick became such a vital part of the team, helping despite not having his speed force anymore. He was the forebringer of warning to the team about Zoom! It became apparent that Harrison and Jay didn't get on very well on Earth 2 but they seemed to reconcile after Jay saved Harrison's life. But then episode 15 ends with Zoom stabbing Jay Garrick through the chest... only to take off his own mask and be Jay Garrick!

This sent my mind reeling and after reading all possible theories, I'm still really baffled! I guess I'll just have to wait till the break is over on the 22nd of March! Check out the upcoming episodes' promo trailer below...

Explaining the point of there being another Harrison Wells (played by Henry Cavanagh) from Earth 2 is confusing too! The Earth 1 counterpart was the Reverse Flash, who was killed at the end of Season 1. This Harrison Wells had a daughter! Personally, I thought that this season would follow a similar storyline of the last season but everything changed when Harrison Wells began to help Barry. Ofcourse the ulterior motive is that Zoom has his daughter held hostage to steal Barry's speed force like Zoom did with Jay Garrick. I guess Harrison Wells on any Earth all have secrets hidden deep down! But who is the masked man who is also imprisoned with Wells' daughter?

Now, Cisco (played by Carlos Valdes) revealed his powers to everyone! And gave himself a new superb name: Vibe! This was not new news to any watchers since he had been having these visions since his death in the alternate timeline, which was deleted when Barry went back in time in Season 1, at the hands of the Reverse Flash.

Black Sails: Season 3 so far!

It would be an understatement if I were to say that I was NOT expecting the plot twists that have happened in Black Sails so far. If you haven't seen the release of the new season be sure to check out my last post about #BlackSails here before going any further!


After the loss of his beloved in the last season, it seems that Captain Flint has nearly lost his mind. The only thing stopping him from insanity is probably John Silver. Through the first few episodes, they seem hostile towards each other however, when they are captured in a remote island they seem to get their relationship knitted while facing death. Long John Silver is finally realizing the effects of delving into the deep dark places inside Captain Flint to keep him on the edge.
Luckily he has Madi Scott on the island to keep him company. But will this relationship change into something more...?

And Flint's feud with Blackbeard. As he is one of the most feared pirates on the Seven Seas, it was my opinion that it would be best for Captain Flint and Captain Vane to keep in his good graces, however its just another day for them: fighting to the death in a gun-slinging duel! Charles Vane used to be Blackbeard's second hand man until he betrayed Blackbeard, and helped Eleanor throw him off the island to gain control of Nassau. But it appears he is willing to forgive that. But will he forgive this SECOND betrayal?

But after Eleanor's arrest, it appears the powerhouse of the British Empire is being seen through Woodes Rodgers. Woodes decides he needs Eleanor's help to take over And they end up being in control of Nassau with help of the allure of the universal pardon for all crimes. The last season ended with Captian Hornigold taking the pardon and becoming a pirate hunter for the Empire.

But I'm so happy that Rakham is still making a name for himself. He may not be as good at pirating as the others but if there's one thing that he has: it's guts and courage. His trick with his letter to Anne about not giving Woodes the half of the Spanish gold, which he and Anne Bonny stole, was something even I wasn't expecting. Since Woodes really needs the money, it seems that Rakham stopped Woodes' takeover of Nassau; a name making task. Well Done Rakham!

Now it's all up to Anne Bonny. She has Woodes on her back but she also has Charles Vane and Captain Flint who want the gold to fund their attack on Nassau! I guess we'll only find out in the next few episodes!

Be sure to check back for more updates!
