Reply Subj: New, crazy theory after watching "Escape from Earth-2"
Posted: Wed Feb 17, 2016 at 03:50:46 am GMT (Viewed 3 times)

    With the introduction of the man in the iron mask, and how obvious that Barry wasn't even close to deducing what he meant by "Jay", I had a crazy thought that might actually work.

    Jay Garrick and Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) are twins. And with two earths that means Teddy Sears will eventually play 4 people.

    If brothers could both get weather powers, they could get speed powers. Both Jay and Zoom wanted to increase speed, and these last episodes proved they were two different people. However we shouldn't throw away all suspicions that there's more to Jay, especially with him changing his story on how he lost his speed.

    This all came from the belief that the man in the mask was trying to say that his name was Jay. I belief he is Earth 1's Jay because him being Earth 2's Flash creates way too many questions.

I like this theory, it would fit nicely with what we've seen. Earth-2 Jay is the Flash, Hunter Zolomon is Zoom, but on Earth-Prime, Jay has no powers and Jay lied about him being Hunter Zolomon when he IS Jay. And then the man in the Iron Mask would then have to be Hunter Zolomon from Earth-Prime who tapped Jay because he is concerned for his brother.

Perhaps this is it, perhaps not, but it's a nice theory because Jay is Zoom doesn't work given the fact Zoom's hand phased through Jay's chest in the latest episode. \:\)

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
