If you can recollect, Season 2 of The Flash saw the introduction of an evil speedster named Zoom. In Flash of Two Worlds, Jay explains everyone that he is the Flash on a parallel Earth and that he was in a battle with a demonic speedster named Zoom when the singularity brought him to this Earth without powers. Season 2 ended at an interesting point. Barry – a.k.a The Flash – had a horrific time defeating Zoom. Barry eventually takes down the villain, who is then forced to serve as the grim reaper by Speed Force’s Time Wraiths. And now, The Flash’s mid-season episode premiere is all set to return to the small screen. Several spoilers and rumors have been floating around regarding what Season 3 has in store for Barry’s fans. Recent spoilers hint at Zoom’s upcoming return to Flash’s – Barry Allen, played by Grant Gustin – life. It’s also being reported that the villain will be seen in several CW superhero series.

Forced into servitude by the Time Wraiths, Zoom’s appearance was changed to a scarier version of himself. It looks like Zoom will make a re-appearance in The Flash Season 3. Andrew Kreisberg, the creator of Flash and also the creator of Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, revealed in a recent Television Critics Association press event that Barry’s life is going to get more complicated as the evil Zoom will return as the Black Flash.
