Quote:Some people think he might be the new ZOOM villain in Season 2.
Quote:Currently, I disagree with that.
Quote:There are no clues yet as to who Zoom is other then that he is from Earth 2 and wants Flash dead.
Quote:Eddie Thawne shot himself in the HEART at point blank range with what was at least a .38 caliber bullet. He died in front of everyone and the time storm began after RF was erased. RF being erased meant Eddie was dead.
Quote:Then Eddie's body was pulled into the singularity as the rest of Team Flash had to get away from ground zero as fast as they can and carrying a dead body kind of slows a normal person down.
Quote:his body and other items were pulled in to the time storm as it was ground zero and was absorbing items to build its accretion disk, etc.
Quote:The only way I can see Eddie still being alive is if Rip Hunter secretly intervened and is healing him which will restore RF as well OR if Rip Hunter appears and PREVENTS Eddie from blasting his own heart out, which of course saves RF as well.
Quote:So barring evidence that states otherwise, Eddie Thawne is dead.
Quote:Currently a 0.1% chance at best that he is Zoom. As evidence mounts this percentage may change.
The actor who played Eddie has a role on Quantico. So I don't think he's Zoom. I suspect he might come back for flashback an episode every season like Tommy Merlyn does on Arrow but I think Eddie's dead. Or we could see his Earth 2 copy...but still I wouldn't expect that to drag out for long.
Jay is coming to Earth 1 to warn Barry of Zoom. So Zoom is probably from Earth 2. Maybe he is Earth 2 Eddie or Earth 2 Harrison...but I doubt it. Those just seem too obvious. And I don't want every season revolving around a new evil iteration of Harrison or Eobard every year.
My personal belief is that Zoom is Earth 2 Henry Allen. I think the writers wrote Henry off to bring him back later for something big. He's going to get killed and replaced by Zoom IMO. Then again that's too much like Eobard pretending to be Harrison.
Why not have Zoom be evil Barry from that other earth?
