The Flash Preview ‘The Fury of Firestorm’
Next week’s episode “The Fury of Firestorm” will focus on the team trying to find a match for Dr. Stein.
Due to the death/disappearance of Ronnie Raymond, Stein is growing more and more unstable. This happened in season one when Stein and Ronnie first separated and tried to be apart. They needed to come together every now and then to maintain their molecular stability.
Team Flash thinks they have found a compatible partner in Jefferson “Jax” Jackson. The trailer for the next episode shows him becoming Firestorm with Stein, but then it appears that they start grappling for power (similar to season one). The word matrix is thrown out, which refers to the Firestorm Matrix, which is how the Firestorm being works. It takes two people in order to maintain that state. On its own, Firestorm becomes a walking reaction. Stein was the submissive force behind Firestorm, Ronnie being the body and main driver. Perhaps Jax and Stein fight over who is the dominant force because Stein has been through this before and knows how to handle the powers. Jax may only be in it for the power. This should lead to an interesting struggle.
It was also confirmed this week that Gorilla Grodd will reappear sometime this season. I was a little disappointed with his appearance in the first season, so I hope that he gets to show more of his real power and destructive nature instead of just taking a backseat to Reverse Flash.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
