Spoilers follow for The Flash. Write-up below the Zoom poster.



Tonight on The Flash saw the identity of Zoom revealed. You can watch the clip above.

My pick for Zoom happened to be Barry's dad, played by original Flash, John Wesley Shipp; however, that isn't the case.

Interestingly enough, if you go back and watch previous episodes, I believe you will notice the character in question wears black a lot of the times - Jay Garrick. However, it's not the same Jay Garrick, as Zoom killed him last episode.

Yep. Earth-1 Jay Garrick - Hunter Zolomon - is Zoom.

The bad news? We have to wait a month until the next episode as The Flash goes on hiatus until March 22nd. Grant Gustin isn't happy about it, either (watch the preview for the next episode here).

EP executive producer also told the following:

“Zoom’s identity has been revealed: He is Hunter Zolomon, a.k.a Jay Garrick,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “How all of that plays out and what’s actually happening, we’ll leave for after the break."

“But we wanted to go out on this run of episodes with a big reveal, just the same way we did at the end of episode 9 in season 1, where we revealed that Harrison Wells was the man in the yellow suit. Zoom’s identity is finally revealed.”

 “It’s an even larger betrayal than last year in some ways, because they’re all going to feel like they should’ve been inoculated against it,” Kreisberg says. “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”
