    Tossing in spoiler tag as precaution

    1. Hunter Zolomon

This is the most likely option since Hunter is Zoom in the comics. If it is Hunter, don't expect him to have much in common with the comics version of the character since many of the things that made Hunter Zolomon into the character he is were used for Dr. Wells and Eddie Thawne in season 1.

If Hunter is Zoom, I predict he won't be seen until mid-season at the earliest. Why? Because the writers aren't stupid and they know that if they introduce Hunter Zolomon, they are pretty much admitting he's Zoom. So, if it is Hunter then they will introduce him later on so it's as much of a surprise as possible.

If it is Hunter, then it's puzzling why they are stealing from Wally West's rogues when Barry has plenty of his own.

    2. earth 2 Henry Allen, possible but not likely. John Wesley Shipp did state in an interview that he really did not want to wear the hot and uncomfortable costume again. But he could have been joking and money does talk.

I doubt this as well.

    3. Earth 2 Barry Allen. An even greater threat then Reverse Flash would be Barry himself

Possible. Grant Gustin might enjoy playing a villain for a change. But this would be cliché and a bit boring.

    4. Earth 2 Harrison Wells, possible, or he may become an ally to Earth 1

Doubtful. It's more than likely he will travel to Earth Prime (Earth-1) and become an Ally. Not at first, but eventually. Plus, he was already used as the villain in season 1 so I can't imagine he will be used again in season 2.

    5. Someone we have not met yet that may not be Hunter Zolomon

Possible too...

And it's entirely possible that Zoom is simply...Zoom...And has no secret identity. In my Review of the episode, I have theorized that Zoom seems like an Amalgam of Hunter Zolomon's Zoom and the Black Flash. The monstrous face leads me to believe this. If I am right, then that makes Zoom more of a force of nature rather than a man with superspeed, which is essentially what Black Flash is. Add on top of that he wants to be the ONLY one with Superspeed and kill anyone else with Superspeed, I think my theory is starting to have merit. What does Black Flash do? Kill those with Superspeed because Black Flash is the grim reaper when it comes to speedsters.

Hm, Black Flash is an interesting possibility.

As to there being an evil Barry, when the first Season 2 teaser was released, it had audio from the assorted characters while a blue speedster was running around and I think Barry was one of the last voices on it. Coincidence or subtle hint?

This IS Earth 2 after all and on alternate Earths things are the same but also different so an evil Barry is not impossible.

as to Harrison Wells, the Wells we knew in Season 1 was really Thawne/Revese Flash having absorbed the DNA of the real Wells, killing him in the process, reminds me of what the Dire Wraiths did in later issues of ROM.... What we saw of the real Wells was that he was a nice guy, on the verge of starting Star Labs and getting married until Thawne stepped in.

So the real Wells of Earth 1 was good, that does NOT mean that Earth 2 Wells is good too. Also on Earth 1, Wells is considered dead and guilty of killing Nora so if Earth 2 Wells migrates to Earth 1 he will have some troubles....presuming he isn't Zoom.
