'The Flash' Season 2 News, Spoilers: Greg Berlanti Says Jay Garrick Isn't Evil; Teddy Sears Talks Jay/Zoom Twist

Some "The Flash" comic book fans expressed disappointment over the latest episode of The CW's "The Flash," which gave viewers a peek into Zoom's backstory and may have implied that Jay Garrick was not a hero, nor even a real person, but was merely Zoom's creation.

While comic book-based television shows often deviate far from the source material and many have come to expect such, "Versus Zoom" earned the fury of many fans, who thought that the "Flash" producers tainted the image of Jay Garrick, a classic comic book character.

"The Flash" creator and showrunner Greg Berlanti responded to the outcry, telling fans on Twitter that they "love" Garrick and would never make the DC Comics character an evil one.

"For those inquiring, we love Jay Garrick and would never make him a baddie," Berlanti tweeted on Wednesday, April 20. "No reinvention. Keep watching :) love that you're asking q's."

While Berlanti's message may have been written to appease fans, it also added another twist to the already-complicated "The Flash" mystery of Zoom/Jay Garrick/Hunter Zolomon.

Some fans are now speculating that the real Jay Garrick could be revealed to be the man in the iron mask in Zoom's dungeon or to be residing in another Earth.

Meanwhile, "The Flash" actor Teddy Sears, who plays Zoom/Jay Garrick/Hunter Zolomon, recently spoke to TVLine about the show's increasingly complex mystery. The actor admitted that he is still trying to figure it out and that there are so many layers to the Jay/Zoom twist.

"It's definitely like a piece of origami," Sears said. "It's folded upon itself and upon itself and eventually it becomes this thing that you recognize. But right now, we're still folding it in on itself. We're not quite at the end."

When asked, given the baffling twist, who it was that Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) was with the whole time, Sears answered, "Hunter Zolomon has been kissing Caitlin this whole time."

"And Hunter Zolomon has real feelings for Caitlin, while he played everybody else," he explained.

"The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
