Ever since Barry (Grant Gustin) altered the timeline in The Flash season three and it was revealed that Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) has been struggling with her new icy powers, each episode this season has been dealing with the continuing progression of Caitlin’s powers as they get stronger despite her doing the best she can to keep them a secret and keep them under control. Episode five ended with her mother warning her the more she uses her powers, the stronger they become and the more she’ll change inside, making it vital she refrains from using them. As Caitlin watched the video from her mom warning her of what’s in store if she doesn’t cease turning things frosty, Caitlin’s eyes turned crystal blue and her hands send out icy frost destroying the computer monitor. Caitlin looked shocked and scared by the fact her powers came forward without her consciously deciding to use them.
More troubles are in store for poor Caitlin according to The CW’s official synopsis of ‘Killer Frost,’ the seventh episode of season three airing on November 22, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT. But first we have to make it through episode six, ‘Shade,’ which will find Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) having dreams about being Kid Flash. Episode six is scheduled to air on November 15th.
The ‘Killer Frost’ Plot: “Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) uses her powers to save Barry (Grant Gustin) but as her mother predicted, the effort unleashes her inner Killer Frost. Killer Frost goes on a rampage looking for Dr. Alchemy, kidnapping Julian (Tom Felton) and battling both The Flash and Vibe (Carlos Valdes). Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) have a heart to heart talk.”
What this means for the future of Caitlin and Team Flash is unknown at this time. Will Barry and Cisco be able to stop her from going down the same dark evil road her doppelganger did on Earth-2 in season two? Will Team Flash lose forever their beloved Caitlin? Will Caitlin permanently become Killer Frost and be one of the main villains facing off against The Flash for the rest of season three? Only future episodes will reveal the fate of our heroes and the brilliant, beautiful, and tragic Caitlin Snow.
‘Killer Frost’ is directed by Kevin Smith from a story by Judalina Neira and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Brooke Roberts.
