One of the biggest mysteries of Flash Season 2 for a bunch of recent episodes is “Who is the man in the Iron Mask within Zoom’s lair?” Many guesses have been thrown, and through it all, we’re no closer to answers, yet.
Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco Ramon told IGN that all mysteries concerning this man and Zoom will be revealed:
“I think all the curtains will be drawn and all mysteries will be revealed in terms of Zoom origin, the lair, the Man in the Mask, the identities,” he told IGN of how Season 2 will be resolved. “There’s an element that’s missing that people don’t know about yet in which people won’t find out about until the Man in the Iron Mask is unmasked.”
He noted though that the secret of who this person is will not make sense until the story of the person is told. So spoilers would literally not make sense:
“When I first found out who it was, I was thrown for a loop,” Valdes said. “You don’t understand why it’s this person until you go into the story behind how this person got into the cell, why Zoom took them hostage and put them in the cell. You cannot make sense – there’s no way of making sense of why that person is in the mask until it is explained. But I think that explanation is very satisfactory. It takes loops and turns, and it’s a riveting story that makes sense within Zoom’s chronology and his story and his motivations.”
With only a few episodes left, the mystery of this man will likely be revealed very soon.
