Zoom Attacks Patty in New Clip from The Flash Midseason Premiere
A new clip from the midseason premiere tonight has just been released, and it is incredibly exciting—or at least it would be, if it had ended about 30 seconds sooner.


In this clip, Barry jokes around with Patty after accidentally setting her roses on fire, and drops some heavy-handed hints about being The Flash. Then, Zoom shows up, kidnaps her, and dangles her off a roof. If the clip had ended there, I would definitely have believed that it was possible this wasn't a dream sequence, since I'd expect the show to explore the consequences of Barry telling Patty (or anyone) his secret identity. But then Zoom actually drops her, she falls to (presumably) her death, and Barry makes no effort to try to catch her.

So, it's a nightmare sequence, and completely inconsequential to the plot. That being said, Zoom is actually going to try to go after the people that Barry loves, so Patty may very well be in jeopardy (and may not make it to the next season). In the comics, Zoom kills Iris West, and it doesn't seem likely that that will happen, since we've already seen a future in which Iris and Barry are married. So it seems much more likely that Zoom will kill Barry's other, guest-starring love interest.

The Flash returns with "Potential Energy" tonight at 8pm ET on The CW.
