Last night on “The Flash” we finally found out Zoom’s identity. It was the moment we had all been waiting for. After putting his hand through Jay Garrick’s chest and pulling him back to Earth-2, Zoom pulled off his mask and revealed himself to be another doppelganger of Jay Garrick.

It was confirmed by “The Flash” showrunner that this version of Garrick is actually Hunter Zolomon. Earlier in the season Jay pointed out what he told Caitlin was his Earth-1 doppelganger, and told her that he was the one named Hunter Zolomon. But obviously Jay, or Hunter wasn’t being truthful.

Andrew Kreisberg spoke to TV Line about the big reveal and he said that he figured fans would have caught on after the Hunter Zolomon name drop.

“What’s funny is we showed that Jay’s doppelganger was Hunter Zolomon, and we assumed the comic book fans would say, ‘A-ha’ right away. ‘Jay must be Zoom.’ But I think that, like Barry and the team, they didn’t want to or just couldn’t believe it.” Kreisberg said.

So we know who Zoom is and we know that Jay Garrick is actually Hunter Zolomon. But what we don’t know is who the man in the iron mask is. Now that Zoom has been revealed that’s the next big mystery everyone is focusing on. According to Kreisberg the man in the iron mask reveal will tie everything together in a big way.

“The mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask will play out over the rest of the season with some clues being layered in along the way. When you do find out who it is, everything will make sense in a very satisfying way.” Kreisberg added.

Who do you think is in the iron mask? Another Jay Garrick doppleganger? Someone else? Sound off below.
