TV Shows: The Flash: Zoom Reveal!


So The Flash has finally revealed who Zoom is:

Based on past speculation, we have suggested that Zoom might be Jay or rather, Hunter Zoloman.

Is the man in the Iron mask the Real Jay Garrick? Or is this Zoom really Hunter Zoloman who looks like Jay?

Anyway, the man in the iron mask has blonde-ish hair:

Man in the iron mask HAIR

Jay Garrick could have split into three different speedsters. Remember that the old story, Man in the Iron Mask, was actually a twin. Could this really clue us in on who this man is?

Jay is man in iron mask

We'll speculate further... soon.

Another possibility is that this Zoom is Hunter Zoloman/Jay Garrick who came from another earth.

His last line, "This will be complicated." alludes to the possibility that they could be one and the same and that this death will cause problems for his own plan.

I just hope that maybe, the real Jay Garrick is played by John Wesley Shipp. Kind of a throwback to the OG Flash tv series.


Showrunner, Kreisberg has this to say: (source)

“For us, it could only happen because of what happened last season,” Kreisberg explains. “For Barry and the others, as much as they were stung by Wells/Thawne’s betrayal, he had been their mentor and friend and they all felt that vacuum when he was gone. Jay had been watching them and knew that so he was able to masterfully step into the role each of them needed. He became a friend and mentor to Barry. A love interest to the heartbroken Caitlin. He skillfully played them all.”

“We knew there’d be a fair amount of the audience who would know who Jay Garrick was and would take the character and anything he said at face value because of his past history,”

“With this, we were better able to hide the ball as it were as to Zoom’s true identity. Who would suspect the big bad was the classic hero from the comics?”
