** The actual final fight between them: Barry ''pounds'' Zoom. After seeing Zoom's actions the entire season, his time as BigBad ending with the Flash utterly pounding him then leaving him to his demise is satisfying to say the least.

** Regardless of how it ended, the simple fact that Zoom's SmugSuper expression got wiped off his face (even just for a few moments) when he realized that [[spoiler: Barry figured out his true identity and used images of his parents against him]] was immensely satisfying.
* In a nightmarish way, the explanation for how Zoom and [[spoiler: Jay could exist at the same time. They ''both'' were Hunter Zolomon all along; it's just that the one who was killed in front of their eyes was from an alternate timeline.

** After Caitlin helps her escape from her cell, Frost double crosses her, believing (correctly) that now Zoom has the "real" Caitlin, he's got no reason to let Frost live. Forst drives Caitlin into the tunnel exit of Zoom's lair and launches an icicle at her...at which point Zoom comes flying down the hallway, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome PHASES THROUGH]] Caitlin, [[ArrowCatch grabs the icicle mid-flight]] [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard and stabs Frost with it.]]

* [[spoiler: How Barry finally stops Zoom: he creates a time remnant of himself during the booting up of the Magnetor. Barry frees Joe while the time remnant keeps Zoom busy; then, while Barry and Zoom are fighting, the remnant creates a force strong enough to stop the Magnetor, [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing himself in the process]] -- as well as luring out the Time Wraiths to destroy Zoom.]]
** The actual final fight between them: [[spoiler: Barry ''pounds'' Zoom. After seeing Zoom's actions the entire season, his time as BigBad ending with the Flash utterly pounding him then leaving him to his demise is satisfying to say the least.]]
** The MythologyGag of [[spoiler: Zoom turning into the Black Flash, complete with the red and white ChestInsignia, as the Time Wraiths attack him and drag him off is wonderfully creepy]].
