With less than a month to go for airing of The Flash season 2, all its fan boys are already pumped up. The Flash season 1 with each and every episode kept on increasing it’s fan-base. It will be a tough call to select a best episode out of the series so far. WE at Pikapost, after digging in the Flash comics and linking some theories are in a condition to state that there are possibilities that we will get to see 6 SPEEDSTERS this season! You heard it right baby!
So now why don’t we take a look on 6 possible speedsters in season 2!
1. Barry Allen (The FLASH)
Duh! The Scarlet speedster a.k.a The Flash is no doubt one of the five speedsters. After watching the last few minutes of season 1 and the comic-con trailer of the flash It can be deduced that season flash will be coming up with few more tricks in his pocket.
2. JAY GARRICK (The Original Flash)
Jay Garrick is the first Flash ever. Wearing a metal hat, a long sleeved T-Shirt and Jeans is the retro version. Jay got it’s reference in the season one, 23rd episode “Fast enough” when he threw his hat from the time barrier to stop Reverse Flash who was supposed to get into the barrier and leave this dimension.
Jay will come in handy as it may be predicted that he is the person who helped out our streak to over come the havoc created in the final episode of first season. Though Jay is not as fast as the flash but with his age and experience will come in handy for the flash.

3. Blue Cobalt
If we go by the Comic-con trailer, The Blue streak is going to be introduced. In Flash comics, Blue streak is called Blue Cobalt. Blue Cobalt is alter-ego of Malcolm Thawne. Yes! another thawne.
Fact : Malcolm is twin brother of Barry Allen! Shocked? Don’t be.
Two pregnant women came to the office of Fallville, Iowa’s Dr. Gilmore. However, the doctor had been drinking, and he had sent his nurse home. The child of one of the women, Charlene Thawne, had been strangled on its own umbilical cord and Gilmore was too intoxicated to save the poor baby. However, the other woman, Nora Allen, successfully gave birth to twin boys. Gilmore, trying to be fair, gave one of the twins to the Thawne family, telling the Allens that one of their children had been stillborn. The twin that remained with the Allens was named Barry, and he grew up to be the Flash. The other twin, however, was raised by the Thawnes, and he was named Malcolm.
How cool will it be, Twin brothers taking on each other! Though there are possibilities that the blue streak is The Flash who got this cool blue streak due to the havoc of world coming to an end caused in climax scene of season 1.
Eobard Thawne may be gone, but another yellow-garbed enemy is taking his place. Season 2’s main antagonist will be Zoom, who is described as being faster than both Flash and Reverse-Flash due to his capablity to alter the time.
Andrew Kriesberg was hesitant to reveal about villains but he had to say :
We’ve got a couple villains we don’t want to share, yet. We’re really excited about Zoom, how that presents, the challenges he brings to our characters. He’s going to be terrifying and scary, and fast.The Zoom outfit is much more organic than the Reverse-Flash suit. In a way, it’s hard to tell if it is a suit or alive… There’s no skin showing, for all you know there’s a robot underneath, or dark energy.
Although going by costume, Zoom is a mock of Reverse Flash with minute changes in costume. Zoom was Hunter Zolomon in comics, a profiler at the Keystone City Police Department and friend of then-Flash Wally West. After he was crippled during a prison break, Hunter begged Wally to travel back in time to stop the accident, but Wally refused as he didn’t want to damage the space-time continuum. Deciding to take matters into his own hands, Zoloman tried to use the Cosmic Treadmill to go back to the past, but the machine malfunctioned and Hunter obtained his own special powers. Unlike Reverse-Flash, Zoom doesn’t run fast, but instead alters time around him to give the appearance of moving quickly.
5. Wally West (Kid Flash)
That’s confirmed. On public demand producers of the show are all set to introduce Wally West. Though who will play the character is not yet declared. In the comics, Wally is Nephew of Iris West who is a big fan of the Flash. Barry on watching his enthusiasm keeps on meeting him as Flash and he is the one who does an experiment on Wally to make him the kid Flash. This experiment was nothing but repeating the events which made Barry The Flash. On it’s success Wally became the sidekick of The Flash and they both fought crime happily ever after(of course not forever, This ain’t no fairy-tale).
6. The Reverse Flash(Eobard Thawne)
That is a possibility. There is a theory that we may see Eobard Thawne again. After all he was the one guy who is to credited in season ones success. Thomas Cavanagh portrayed the character of Dr. Wells, secretly Eobard Thawne and was loved by all. Though the actual reverse flash’s face was shown twice in the season(which was played by Matt Letscher). It is yet not cleared that who will play Eobard Thawne. Though there is a possibility that both Thomas and Matt may get into this season playing roles of Dr. Wells and Eobard. Quite confusing but come on this is The Flash!
+2? POSSIBILITIES OF OTHER 2 SPEEDSTERS
The Flash TV series is all about bringing something new to the series.
So there may be possibilities that Patty Spivot who will replace Eddie Thawne as partner of Joey West and who also is love interest of Barry Allen this season may be from the Flash family.
And It won’t be wrong to guess if Eddie Thawne gets back this season but with pretty bad mind set and as another speedster.
We all are as much excited you are about The Flash season 2 which returns 6th Oct on CW. Keep watching this space for more trivia’s and update about the scarlet speedster!
