        Clearly the guy in the mask is wearing a mask so Barry and Jessie can't see who he is. He taps out Jay. Barry thinks he is asking about Jay but the obvious other conclusion is that he is Jay which means the guy we think is Jay is an imposter.


        My thought is that since we were introduced to Hunter Zolomon on Earth-Prime, that MAYBE the Jay we know is Earth-2 Hunter Zolomon and he was lying this whole time. As for the guy in the Iron Mask being Jay, yeah...I think your right based on how he reacted to Jay's name and how upset he was when Barry tried to reassure him.

    That would make sense! So Earth 1 Hunter Zolomon is the innocent bystander we saw in the park. Earth 2 Hunter Zolomon is the guy who has been saying he is Earth 2 Jay Garrick.

    The actual Earth 2 Jay Garrick is Zoom's prisoner which would make Zoom Earth 1 Jay Garrick. Or the Earth 1 Garrick is the prisoner, it doesn't matter. And Jay Garrick doesn't actually look like Hunter Zolomon!


See my post above about the Man in the Iron Mask theories. ;\)

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?
