'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 2 preview: Barry take a trip to the future while we prepare for more Bloodwork and the 'Crisis'
Part of the plot will be a meta-human the team will be taking on. However, the first half of the episode may see Barry and his team come to terms with the bad news given by The Monitor
The opening episode of 'The Flash' Season 6 kicked off on a strong start. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) was able to stop a black hole from opening across Central City (with the Queen's Flash Gordon theme playing in the background) while Dr. Ramsey Rosso's (Sendhil Ramaswamy) Bloodwork had his origins explained.
From all the promos and trailers, things looked pretty bleak for Barry, but the series starts on a brisk note. It addressed most issues that needed answering since the trailer first hit the small screens.
Bloodwork's introduction and 'Crisis' were the most-awaited, and 'Into the Void' establishes the two main plot points.
With the 'Crisis' imminent and Barry's future prophesized by The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett), the second episode 'A Flash of Lightning' will most likely see the team figure out a way to stop Barry from vanishing during the event.
The CW's promo sees Barry time travel again, this time, it's the future and the day after he vanishes during the 'Crisis'. To help him make the journey is Jay Garrick's hat that somehow lets him travel to the future.
The clip also showcases the return of John Wesley Shipp and Michelle Harrison, who initially joined the show as the parents of Earth-1's Barry Allen.
The photos for the episode recently revealed that Barry will actually be interacting with Shipp's Jay Garrick, the Earth-3 version of The Flash, with Harrison portraying Jay's comic-accurate girlfriend, Joan Williams.

The official synopsis for the episode reads: "Faced with the news of his impending death, Barry’s (Grant Gustin) resiliency suffers as he struggles to fight fate. Meanwhile, Cecile’s (Danielle Nicolet) career as a DA conflicts with her identity when she crosses paths with a villainous meta-human".
The episode will also give fans a glimpse of the much-awaited 'Crisis'. While we may not really see how Barry vanishes (although we hope we do) it may probably be part of the visions that Barry gets to see.
We can also expect more of Bloodwork in the episode considering that he's shown joining Barry's team for a brief period.
