Last nights episode of The Flash had an interesting moment involving the man in the mask. Be aware the following article will definitley have spoilers included. Here is Sammy The Spoiler Squirrel as a final warning.
Still with me? Ok then.
While locked up by Zoom, Barry and Jessie (Harry's daughter), try to work out what the man in the mask is tapping. Together they work out it's an old POW code and start to decipher the message.
Here's where it gets interesting. The word old metal head has been repeating is JAY. I believe there are a few things we can take from this.
1. THE MAN IN THE MASK ISN'T JAY GARRICK.
I think that is pretty obvious. If it was him, then once they had the word right, he would have pointed at himself. He didn't do this at all, in fact when Barry said Jay was alive on Earth One, it just made him angry. Could this be because he knows whats happened to the real Jay and this is the reason for the mask?
There is no proof the Jay Garrick on Earth One, is the one Zoom attacked before getting taken through the breach. What if the Jay we saw go through the breach, never made it to the other side? There has been no mention of the body of Eddie Thawn landing on Earth Two. The Jay we have seen growing closer to Caitlin could be from a different Earth altogether. For all we know, he could have travelled through on his own and lost his speed just like Reverse Flash did.
2. THE MAN IN THE MASK ISN'T WALLY WEST.
At first I thought this could be a possibility, but after this episode, not any more. The man in the mask is definitely white so I think we'll have to wait a little longer to see a version of the Wally West Flash.
3. THE MAN IN THE MASK ISN'T HENRY ALLEN FROM EARTH ONE.
If it was our Henry, then wouldn't he have definitely tapped out D.A.D instead of Jay. Seeing Barry would immediatley make him try to let him know who he was. Plus the body shape is all wrong. John Wesley Shipp has a bigger build than the guy in the cage.
I think that's enough to show it isn't Henry.
What this does leave us with is two big questions which don't look like they answers are coming anytime soon.
1. Who the hell is in the mask?
2. Just who in the name of Zeus' beard is Zoom?
I think there is going to be a couple more episodes before we find out more.
What do you think? Do you have a different idea of who it could be after watching last nights episode?
I would love to hear your ideas in the comments.
