The mystery of Zoom’s identity is finally solved. His identity is revealed in “The Flash” episode “King Shark.” Zoom is Hunter Zolomon. The episode shows Zoom walking with the body of Jay. He dumped the body and opened his mask, and the face is finally revealed.
Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of the show, told Entertainment Weekly that Zoom is Hunter Zolomon. Kreisberg said, “How all of that plays out and what’s actually happening, we’ll leave for after the break,” adding, “But we wanted to go out on this run of episodes with a big reveal, just the same way we did at the end of episode 9 in season 1, where we revealed that Harrison Wells was the man in the yellow suit. Zoom’s identity is finally revealed.”
As per Variety, he said, “Part of the reason he was able to do that was because there was a hole in the center of their group, and he knew that. He was able to step in because they wanted it so desperately. Barry was missing his mentor, Wells, and here comes Jay offering to be his mentor. Caitlin had lost Ronnie, and then here comes Jay offering to be her new knight in shining armor.”
It is expected for the show to do something more interesting with the revelation of Zoom’s identity. There may be more to the identity of Zoom than what was revealed. There may be more truth “The Flash” is hiding about Zoom’s identity. Let us know your take on it.
