Quote:Remember: I have postulated the fact that the Wells of Earth 1 was a good man until Reverse Flash killed him and replaced him. This does NOT mean that the Wells of Earth 2 is a good person. He could be an evil genius whereas the Wells of Earth 1 was good before he was killed.
It struck me how similar the formula for this season is to last season with the use of Wells/Zoom but with it being this well written you hardly care...
It does appear that Harrison Wells-2 is Zoom, and I like that twist, Earth-2 is such an intriguing mirror you can do a lot of clever twists and play with expectations. Zoom's apparent visual similarity to Barry/Reverse-Flash might have been avoided I think as it is a little confusing unless you bear in mind this is an alternate earth and everything is slightly distorted, but given Wells-2 is obviously a genius his goals may be entirely aimed at honing his own Superspeed and ensuring his own dominance - I thought I read that that is what he is after, to be the ultimate speedster...?
Yes, Zoom wants all Speedsters dead so he can be the only one. And there is simply no way Earth-2 Dr. Wells is Zoom. Dr. Wells/Reverse Flash was the big bad of season 1, to recycle the same big bad, even an alternate version of him, would be very, VERY bad storytelling.
I think it's pretty safe to assume Earth-2 Dr. Wells has no powers at all and that he is not Zoom. I'll be sorely disappointed if I turn out to be wrong and I will all faith in the writing staff of the Flash.
Still would like to have evil Barry be the Zoomster, and that barry and Wells team up to yake him out!
