An additional clue Zoom is not human?

I liked this episode a lot as it was paced very well and kept the viewer guessing all the time. Having set the threat of Zoom up by way of hearsay and dubious accounts from people from an alternate world one can understand why Team-Flash might have felt skeptical and complacent about the true level of his threat, but by teasing us with his possible arrival when it finally does happen the truth to Zoom is given incredible impact. No exaggeration from Jay or Wells - this thing is an absolute Monster!

But what is Zoom? My own theory is that he is some aspect of Wells himself given form, some clues come in the form of this episode as we are subtley reminded of Wells' irrational hatred of Jay Garrick, his daughter who he nicknames Jesse Quick, his searching out Barry Allen, these and others support his and Zooms shared fixation of Speed, and being the fastest there is. Other elements also hint at a suspicious content as Zoom curiously seems to know not to show for Team-Flash's trap and knows where to find Linda Park and is aware of Barry's identity and job at the Police Precinct - all of which Wells himself would likely have found out for himself. And then there is kidnapping Jesse and holding her hostage... why? Why does 'Zoom' look and act so very distorted and corrupted? Because he is a construct, a projection... it's all a fascinating mystery.

But at its heart is Harrison Wells.
