After watching episode 5 of season 2 of The Flash, I started thinking about Harrison Wells as he is the most intriguing character on the show thus far. We know that he is from Earth 2 and that he is not the same person as the Harrison Wells of last season, he is simply the doppelganger of the Dr. Wells we know from season 1. I still cannot determine whether or not Dr. Wells is actually good or playing the same game that he did last season, pretending to be good. Although I was really surprised that the group accepted him so quickly after leaving Jay Garrick locked up for a whole episode before finally trusting him.
What we do know is that the Harrison Wells from Earth 1 is dead because Eddie Thawne killed himself at the end of season 1. Earth 1 Harrison Wells was actually not Harrison Wells but a man from the future named Eobard Thawne (a distant descendent of Eddie’s). Finally, we know that Eobard Thawne killed and took the body of the real Earth 1 Harrison Wells and lived as Wells for decades as part of his master plan.
I think it is very possible, that in Eobard Thawne from the Earth 1 future, travelled to Earth 2, because it is the future and we already know that multidimensional travel exists. Upon travelling to Earth 2, Earth 1 Eobard could have persuaded his Earth 2 doppelganger to complete his plan if it didn’t work the first time. If this happened, this could mean that the Earth 2 Harrison Wells is Earth 2 Eobard Thawne and a bad guy. I think everything I have said so far is very possible, maybe even likely.
Now here’s where it gets really interesting. There is a character in DC Comics called “Professor Zoom” who is actually Eobard Thawne. We know that the main bad guy for this season is Zoom, so it is possible that they are the same person. However, I don’t think that last part is the case. In the DC Comics universe, there is a character also called “Zoom” who is a person named Hunter Zolomon. I think the show will go with the Hunter Zolomon character rather than the Eobard Thawne character. It just seems like it would be redundant to have the same bad guy for 2 seasons in a row. And no, I don’t think my title was misleading because I was simply asking a question!! Please don’t hate me.
What do you think? Is Harrision Wells ACTUALLY Harrison Wells? And who is Zoom? Let us know in the comments below!
