After Henry’s death, Barry was determined to take out Zoom in The Flash Season 2 Finale, “The Race of His Life.” Only his friends weren’t about to let him risk everything and everyone by racing Zoom, so they took matters into their own hands. After they made the situation even worse, Barry raced Zoom and then made a world-altering decision.

Check out the best lines and exchanges from “The Race of His Life.”

The Flash S2 Finale_00001.png“Of course, I want to kill him, Joe. I want to do a hell of a lot more than just kill him. I want him to suffer for all he has done and he’s going to!”
– Barry

Barry: “I’m sorry, but I’m racing him whether you want me to or not.”
Joe: “And I can’t talk you out of it?”
Barry: “Not this time.”
Joe: “Then, I’m sorry too.”

Barry: “What? All of you?”
Cisco: “Bro, I went back and forth. I was like a good 60/40 at first.”
Wells: “Ramon…”
Cisco: “Yeah, yeah. We all made the decision.”

The Flash S2 Finale_00004.png“We’re going home.”
– Wells to Jesse

Barry: “We just won. We just beat Zoom. Why does it feel like I just lost?”
Iris: “Because you’ve lost a lot in your life, Barry. More than most, but maybe you and me, seeing where this thing goes, maybe that can give you something for a change.”
Barry: “That’s all I’ve ever wanted you to say. I wish I was in a place where I could try that with you, but I feel so hollowed out inside right now. I feel more broken than I’ve ever felt in my life. If I’m ever going to be worth anything to you,  I need to fix what’s wrong with me. I need to find some– some peace.”

Iris: “Wherever you need to go, whatever you need to do, do it. And when you get back, I’ll be here.”
Barry: “Okay.”
Iris:  I love you, Barry.”
Barry: “I love you too. And, I always will.”
