I'm posting after a pretty long time and I wanted to make my return worth.
Many of us are scratching our heads as to who is behind Zoom's mask.
I have come up with a theory about Zoom in The Flash.
This is just speculation and might not be entirely true but after much pondering , this theory kind of works....Please read it to the very end.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE FLASH
ZOOM AND JAY GARRICK ARE SPLIT PERSONALITIES i.e CLONES OF THE ACTUAL JAY GARRICK BUT WITH OPPOSITE PERSONALITIES
Lets just say, Jay Garrick gets hit by lightning on Earth-2 and he becomes The Flash. He whizzes around helping people and saving the day. But he experiments on himself, maybe because he wants to figure out about his powers or maybe he feels he isn't fast enough.
But one day it goes horribly wrong and it results in the personification of his good and bad sides....The Jay we have seen, and Zoom.
But I believe these clones/personalities had a "vampiric need for speed".
Good Jay, the one on Earth-1, gets the speed he needs from serums,like velocity-6 which he admitted to have done on his Earth, (not for the same reason, but he is probably hiding it) a few episodes back.
Bad Jay, the bad side, gets it off from other speedsters.
Good Jay proudly embraces his name but Bad Jay hides his face with a mask and goes around by a new name....ZOOM
Imagine an experiment gave your good and bad personalities separate bodies.....
Yep that's what I believe happened.
And I believe the actual Jay survived the experiment.
Then what happened to the actual Jay?
I believe we've already had a glimpse of him as one of Zoom's prisoners...
The man in the Iron mask...
He was trying to tell Barry something about Jay Garrick and he communicated through what Barry calls "A five by five tap code used by POWs"
Now we know from the comics that Jays father fought in the First world war. Maybe he was captured by the enemies and he later taught the code to Jay when he was freed later? Maybe...
And the way he reacted when Barry mentions Jay is alive and is on his Earth. It was like he was screaming on the inside. Maybe its because he feels guilty for creating all of this mess. Maybe he was trying to tell Barry that he is the real Jay.
Jessie also claims that he was already prisoner when she got there.
Maybe Zoom has captured his actual self for reasons unknown.
But we will find out the truth in episodes to come.
Zoom's identity was revealed on the episode King Shark (23/02/2016)
this further solidifies my theory that they are split personalities of the Real Jay.
Don't be surprised when the Man in the Iron Mask is revealed to be Jay as well!
