The Flash doesn’t return to The CW until the middle of April, but when the show arrives back on the air, it will bring some major revelations with it. As you can see in both the images above and the extended promo below, Barry Allen is about to come face to face with Zoom, a character whose identity has now been confirmed as being Hunter Zolomon.
It seems the show is taking a very different direction with this character though, as he’s portrayed as a serial killer and escaped mental patient here; in the comics, Hunter was a cop and ally to The Flash who lost his mind when the Scarlet Speedster (Wally West at the time) refused to go back in time to save his wife due to the damage that would do to the timeline.

The promo also seems to confirm that Hunter posed as the heroic Jay Garrick in order to give people hope before snatching it away from them. However, that doesn’t explain who the man in the iron mask is…could that be the real Jay, kidnapped and replaced by Zoom? Those are the questions which this episode will hopefully answer.
No synopsis (or title) has been released for this instalment of The Flash just yet, but stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
