The Flash Season 2 has introduced to us an awesome villain: Zoom. He has been such a bad-ass and a menacing character with no morals besides killing the Flash and he will easily kill anyone who gets in his way. However, there has been a mystery revolving around his character: his identity. Many people have speculated on who Zoom really is behind the mask. Fans speculated Henry Allen, Earth 2 Barry Allen, Eddie Thawne, Harrison Wells, the list went on. A small percentage of people guessed correctly and for the rest were just plain.


Zoom is... Jay Garrick or Hunter Zolomon

It has finally been revealed, Zoom is either our Jay Garrick or Hunter Zolomon, our Jay Garrick's Earth 1 doppelgänger. It does seem awfully familiar however, as in Season 1, they fought a menacing speedster faster than Barry which turned out to be someone on Team Flash, which was of course Harrison Wells a.k.a. Eobard Thawne. It isn't exactly going to turn out that way, at least I don't think so.

I think that Zoom is Hunter Zolomon and that the man in the mask is the actual Jay Garrick. How is this possible? Didn't Zoom kill Jay Garrick? There are a number of different possibilities. One could be that the Jay Garrick that we met was not actually Jay Garrick but was another man working for Zoom who made himself look like Jay Garrick, like Eobard Thawne made himself look like Harrison Wells. This would still be a huge parallel to Season 1. Jay Garrick could also just be dead. He was just recently cast in a new FOX TV show, is this because Jay Garrick is dead and Zoom will (most likely) die in the season finale? It all does sound very confusing, but the show has always made everything they have done as simple as they possibly can. Therefore, whatever the show does with Zoom and Jay Garrick, I'm sure it will be very intriguing and entertaining.
