Zoom... The Zoom we are getting for Season 2 of The Flash is much different form The Reverse Flash (Professor Zoom) we go last season. This Zoom is different, as Jay Garrick (The Flash) said, "He is an unstoppable Speed Demon." Professor Zoom a.k.a The Reverse Flash is Eobard Thawne and Hunter Zolomon, also you have Kid Zoom. So who is the Zoom we are getting this season?

The Zoom that we see this season is known as an unstoppable speed demon. My guess is that Zoom is Jerry McGee. Speed demon (Jerry McGee) is friends with Wally West, in fact, they were scientist together at S.T.A.R. Labs. Jerry's mental instability and obsession with his work led to the destruction of his marriage, after which he went crazy and became bent on revenge. Developing a high-tech suit that would imbue him with super-speed through steroid usage, he became a costumed super-villain. However, Jay Garrick, Wally West,and Blaze Allen have all been the Speed Demon.

I am really digging this poster for Zoom.

A friend of mine has her own theory, which I am going to quote here."My guess is that Zoom is a composite of Edward Clariss, New 52 Future Barry, and the Black Flash. He was Earth-2 "Barry" who was a scientist working with Wells. When the particle accelerator exploded, and The Flash appeared, Wells tried to replicate his speed with Edward Clariss, and accidentally turned him into a Black Flash-like monster." I don't really agree with this theory of who Zoom could be, but it is nice that she was willing to share her thoughts about it.

In this season, Zoom is bringing people from Earth 2 over to try and kill The Flash (Barry Allen). Why doesn't he just do it himself? He eventually does end up fighting The Flash at the end of the season. I guess it is what the writers of the show have in plan to introduce new meta humans for Barry to face.

In the end of this weeks episode of the Flash, Barry meets Harrison Wells of Earth 2, who is going to be a good guy this season, but is a total douche bag. In the trailer for next weeks episode, Harrison says he knows who Zoom is because he created him. Will Harrison reveal Zoom's identity to The Flash team. Also, will Jay Garrick get his powers back from the Speed force anytime soon, or will we have to wait till the end of the season? I enjoy watching Jay and Barry work together, they make a great team. I have so many questions that I need answers for. Once I get more information, I will write more about Zoom. We have to wait until next weeks episode to find out more about Zoom, and Harrison Wells. So, until next week, may the speed force be with you.

Enjoy this preview of next weeks episode of The Flash.
