If Earth 2 only had one speedster and it's not the Jay that we saw, then Zoom has never stolen the speed force from anyone.  Besides, he can clearly take Barry whenever he wants, so why have Wells try to steal his speed force for him if he can take it on his own.   Also, Jay admitted his speed force wasn't stolen, he just didn't have the drug anymore.

My thinking is that Zoom can open portals between worlds and maybe is from another Earth entirely.  He's just Jay from Earth 3 or whatever.  That would make the man in the iron mask another speedster from another Earth and I'm willing to bet it's Wally West.  If he can steal speed force, then I'm guessing he needs to keep the speedsters alive to do it, thus the imprisoned man.

The Jay we met was addicted to speed.
My guess is he isn't actually Earth 2s Flash.
 He never actually had the speed force, at least.
 He might not actually be Jay Garrick, there was a Flash villain who made himself up to look like him instead.
 Hence the drug addiction.
The guy in the Iron Mask is Jay. Earth 2 Jay, the real Flash of that Universe.
 Zoom is like the Jay we saw, a drug addict. But somehow instead of using a drug he is able to rip out the speed of a speedster and add it to his own.
 He got the Jay he killed to work with him by promising him a fix, maybe.
 If I'm right, meh.

I'm pretty sure that the person in the iron mask is Kid Flash - Wally. There could be The One multiverse jumbo mumbo, or timeline disruptions in the Earth 2 continuity to deal with Garrick. With his reaction though, I'd say it isn't likely to be a shapeshifter.

A little late to this one, I’m not caught up on Arrow but am enjoying this one more as it goes one. Only on episode 6 season 1 and didn’t think the first two episodes where that strong but it’s growing on me.

The last episode: The Runaway Dinosaur.

Maybe it's because I'm unapologetically a momma's boy, but it made me tear up. I still get the feels when I think about it.

That was a good one.  And I will forgive all the shitty plotting that went on this season if they do as well on the last two of the season.

There doesnt seem to be any in universe acknowledgment of how emotionally abusive Wells is to his daughter.

I am stoked for this seasons villain.  Assuming it is who they are telegraphing it is.

Don't know the comics very well, but I'm worried that yet another evil speedster seems to be the villain.  I'd really prefer they do something different this time around besides "I need to go FASTER!!"

Jesus fuckin Christ. That was brilliant. If you have not seen the latest episode go watch it now. There is a scene with different multi-verse versions of Harrison Wells that made my head spin it was so funny.  Tom Cavanagh is too good.

The multiple Wells was the only thing I disliked (aside from the villain of the week. Yeesh, talk about tone deaf) but it was a great episode!
Im so excited to see where things go with Metron!

Yeah, they pretty much had to make her a killer to be a bad guy.
 
 They're aiming for being more lighthearted than previous eps after the last season. Loved plastic man so far, though his characterization is a bit problematic with all the stuff that's come out recently.
 The Wells thing was pretty much a big lip alligator moment. Still laughed as Harrison the Grey.
