“The Flash” season 2 finale saw Barry defeating the super-villain, Zoom, but did he really? Was the last moments of Zoom on the show set up as a deliberate teaser to reintroduce him as the “Black Flash” in season 4?

Even though fans had expected Barry to be the one to kill Zoom, the “enforcers” of the speed force were really the ones to do so. However, Zoom was not really shown to be killed by the enforcers, just carried off into the speed force after being decimated in the face. But was that a deliberate move on the part of the creators to give viewers a glimpse of what they can expect in season 3?

The partially destroyed appearance of Zoom, in the final moments, greatly resembled one “Black Flash” from the DC comics. The Black Flash is known to be villain in the sense that every time he shows up, the lives of speedsters are threatened.

The Flash encounters the Black Flash more than once in the comics and successfully escapes him. The flesh peeling back from Zoom’s teeth and his eyeballs turning black certainly made him briefly resemble the Black Flash.

Moreover, Black Flash is supposed to personify Death itself. And while Zoom’s original costume was supposed to be yellow and red, the creators of the show decided to go with black. Why did they decide to do so?

“Everything about Zoom just feels like death,” Kreisberg, the executive producer of “The Flash”, said in an interview with MTV. “We had an idea that it should look like a demon. Reverse-Flash came from the future and Zoom came from hell.”

However, accordingly to CarterMatt, “The Flash” season 4 would be all about dealing with the aftereffects of the Flashpoint more than anything else. Barry was seen going back in time preventing the Reverse Flash from killing his mother, the very event that shaped Barry’s life and made him who he is at present. There is bound to be dire consequences of Barry making alterations to the timeline, which will affect not only his life but the DC world at large.
