Quote:Star Labs tests her and discover the darkmatter and bomb residue that empower her has bonded to her DNA. Professor Wells also uses a curious choice of words "the technology to separate it from your cells is not invented yet".
Quote:Interesting choice of words, almost as if he is from the future......
Quote:Also each episode convinces me that Wells is Professor Zoom the Reverse Flash. What better disguise for someone with superspeed then to be in a wheel chair.
Speaking for myself, I think the writers are giving us (the audience) the classic case of misdirection. I don't think Dr. Wells is Professor Zoom at all. However, I do think he's from the future as all indications point to that.
So, why do I think Dr. Wells is not Professor Zoom? Well, for one thing we have to remember what Dr. Wells keeps saying, "He must be kept safe." So, if Dr. Wells is Professor Zoom, why would he want Barry to be kept safe? Just seems all kinds of odd to me. Dr. Wells has already shown to "protect" Barry by murdering a man from a previous episode. That doesn't strike me as what Professor Zoom would do. Yes, commit murder but protect Barry? We also see Dr. Wells give Barry cautionary advice in the pilot. The man even seems reluctant to even let Barry don the red suit and help people. If I was Professor Zoom, I wouldn't be giving Barry such advice. I would let Barry make potentially fatal decisions in the hopes he'd get killed. Dr. Wells keeps saying he wants Barry to be kept safe. He even convinced Barry's foster Dad to give Barry his support in what he does. All this to protect Barry? That does not strike me as Professor Zoom.
Personally, I think Eddie Thawne is Professor Zoom. Notice that last name, same name as Barry's nemesis. Coincidence? There has been no indication that Eddie is Professor Zoom, however. All fingers point to Dr. Wells. But, to me this is just further proof Eddie is the Reverse Flash. The writers want us to look at the prime suspect (Dr. Wells) and miss the guy who shares the same last name as Professor Zoom's real name.
I really do think this is a classic case of misdirection. I've seen this done in the past. My money is on Eddie Thawne as Professor Zoom.
In conclusion, let me offer my theory on Dr. Wells. I think Dr. Wells is from the future. But he wants to protect Barry from Professor Zoom (Eddie Thawne), so Dr. Wells traveled through time in order to protect Barry. But Dr. Wells doesn't know who Professor Zoom is (otherwise, I think Dr. Wells and Eddie would be interacting and know each other or in the very least, Dr. Wells trying to stop him somehow).
Considering how dangerous Professor Zoom is, Dr. Wells feels the need to be ruthless when it comes to protecting Barry. Hence, the dark side to Dr. Wells.
Well, that's my theory and I very well could be wrong. It's something to consider at least.
I was one week behind, but as soon as i saw this episode, i felt it tugging at my brain.
Proffesor Wells is Psycho-Pirate! God, someone validate my theory, i have noone to discuss this with. Lol
