    Surely when this breaks it'll be someone we're familiar with, otherwise the reveal will have less impace.

    A lot of theories out there:

    - Zoom is Eaobard Thawne (reverse Flash) from another timeline/Earth 2. Thawne is Dr Zoom/reverse flash in the comics so makes sense, to would be a bit of a let down for me.

    - Earth 2 Barry Allen. No one has mentioned what Barry Allen is up to over on Earth 2. Could be a possibility?

    - Barry Allen's dad? Seems a bit far fetched, but some people are thinking this.

    Any other ideas out there?

    Who do you think is behind the mask? Wally West is also a future speedster - could be a corrupt version of him...

    Who would you want it to be? For me, if it was Thawne, I'd be a bit disappointed. As far as I know the black suited Zoom is new for the TV show, I don't think he's been in the comics(?) so they could do something cool with him.

    I haven't really read the comics tbh. I hope it's one of the squad, maybe an older Barry on Earth 2

    Yeah a corrupt, messed up Earth 2 Barry would be sweet!

    OIk I've been researching the comics and I am now convinced it is not zoom at all, but actually Black Flash.

    Black Flash is not connected with zoom in any way, but looks exactly the same. Black flash is a black, hellish looking version of The Flash that steals the speedforce from other speedersters - sound familiar?

    Google Black Flash and let me know what you think!
