    Some people think he might be the new ZOOM villain in Season 2.

    Currently, I disagree with that.

    There are no clues yet as to who Zoom is other then that he is from Earth 2 and wants Flash dead.

Actually, we don't know if Zoom is from Earth 2. So far, it's never been stated that he is. \:\)

    Eddie Thawne shot himself in the HEART at point blank range with what was at least a .38 caliber bullet. He died in front of everyone and the time storm began after RF was erased. RF being erased meant Eddie was dead.

Malcomn Merylin was stabbed through the chest with an arrow. He should have died, but if memory serves he faked his own death. If anything, death is never permanent in these kinds of TV shows unless the writers want it to be.

    Then Eddie's body was pulled into the singularity as the rest of Team Flash had to get away from ground zero as fast as they can and carrying a dead body kind of slows a normal person down.

Exactly. It was pulled into the singularity. Remember, by shooting himself, removing Reverse Flash from existence, Eddie was the wild card. Plus, Eddie is a Thawne. It's entirely possible that being pulled into the singularity would cause Eddie to be revived somehow by gaining the power to alter time relative to himself. Remember that a black hole, theoretically anyway, alters the perception of time. Stranger things have happened in the world of comics and TV shows.

Plus, let's also consider that Hunter Zolomon (Zoom in the comics) was a Police Officer before his transformation into Zoom. Eddie Thawne was also a police officer and a friend of Barry Allen just as Hunter was a friend of Wally West. Thus far, no character named Hunter Zolomon has befriended Barry Allen. It wouldn't make much sense to do something like that now when Zoom wants to kill the Flash, and Eddie has already done so in the first season. And frankly, introducing a character by the name Hunter Zolomon would be a dead give-away.

Plus, existing outside the timeline by having time powers, Eddie could very well have gone insane and ended up hating Barry enough to kill him. The more I think about this, the more it makes sense that Zoom is Eddie Thawne. And until we are given a reason to believe otherwise with clear evidence, Eddie is my #1 suspect.

    The only way I can see Eddie still being alive is if Rip Hunter secretly intervened and is healing him which will restore RF as well OR if Rip Hunter appears and PREVENTS Eddie from blasting his own heart out, which of course saves RF as well.

And that is very real possibility. And since it didn't happen in the season 2 premiere, I have my doubts it'll happen in the future. So, it's equally as possible this won't happen at all. For me, it's a 50/50 at this point.

    So barring evidence that states otherwise, Eddie Thawne is dead.

In the timeline, yes, but outside of it? I'm not so sure... ;\)

Anyways, you were so right about Dr. Wells last season so maybe your right yet again. We are one episode in so honestly it's far too early at this point to say yay or nay. \:\)

i'm going off memory here but I think it was stated by producers in interviews prior to the season that ZOOM is from Earth 2 and with all the breaches happening, Jay Garrick has arrived to warn them and help train Barry to fight Zoom.

However we both can agree that with only one episode and no major or subtle clues yet about who ZOOM is, we can only wait and see \:\)

Although being pulled into a gravitational singularity tends to be lethal....
