Barry Trades Places with His Earth-2 Doppelganger in New Clip from Tonight's The Flash
Earth-2 is coming to The Flash tonight in a big way, with Barry encountering alternate versions of Caitlin, Ronnie, Iris, Joe, and, of course, himself. Now, we know exactly how that happens, as a new clip from "Welcome to Earth-2" previews Barry abducting his Earth-2 counterpart and taking his place:


In this clip, Barry retrieves the other Barry Allen and brings him back to S.T.A.R. labs so he can take his place in Earth-2 and learn more about Zoom. While some fans have speculated that Earth-2 Barry is actually Zoom, that seems highly unlikely, considering that he is depicted in this clip as an adorable nerd who geeks out over Harrison Wells' thesis and wears a bowtie. 

Tonight's episode will also feature doppelgangers of several other prominent characters, including Caitlin's evil alter-ego Killer Frost and Ronnie Raymond's villainous counterpart Deathstorm. The official synopsis reads:

Opening quote
Barry, Wells and Cisco journey to Earth-2 to rescue Wells' daughter, Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) from Zoom. Barry is stunned when he runs into Earth-2 Iris and Joe, but nothing prepares him for meeting Killer Frost and Deathstorm (guest star Robbie Amell). Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) has to take over the Flash's responsibilities when a meta-human nicknamed Geomancer (guest star Adam Stafford) attacks Central City.
Closing quote

The Flash's "Welcome to Earth-2" airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.
