    My Thoughts: If this is true, then the Jay we know could be the REAL Jay Garrick. I also like this theory because it makes sense why this man would have an iron mask that prevents him from speaking. I never even thought of this one. But, once again, that brings up a question: Who is Zoom?

    What do you guys think?

Johnny Chambers is a nice idea, but I can't see them springing an unknown on us like that. I did consider Ronnie Raymond, but why Zoom would keep him like this makes no real sense, threrefore I side with the theory that he is the real Jay - the wormhole pulled Zoom and not Jay through to Earth-1 and for whatever reason he somehow adopts the form of Jay... this doesn't make complete sense of course but consider that Zoom presumably had no awareness of The Flash and Earth-1 until the Wormhole opened and you can appreciate how he would want to pause and learn more of this new dimension before confronting The Flash... so undercover he goes, using Jay's form.
I do think Zoom is more/less than he seems, he is hiding something about himself as essentially from what we know his origin is similar to Barry's but his transformation and evolution is so extreme to his and Reverse-Flash's that there is clearly some extra layer to his story. 'Zoom' is the theatrical performance - who is the actor?
