In the season one finale of The Flash, “Fast Enough,” we got our first, unofficial look at Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) as her Killer Frost alter-ego. At the time, it was easy to just dismiss it as a fun winking reference to the fans who were familiar with the character from the original comic-book source material. However, then-fan favorite Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) began exhibiting powers that linked him with his comic book alter-ego, Vibe, and Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), the original Flash, arrived via a breach in the universe, opening the possibilities of alternate versions of the characters that fans have already gotten to know.
Now, we’ve been given our very first, official, look at Caitlin as the villainous Killer Frost. While it hasn’t been announced just how the character is going to fit into the current storylines, the alternate universe certainly gives the show more leeway to play with the character, rather than turning the Caitlin of Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) universe into another big bad.
Will Caitlin Snow be breaking bad soon, or is Zoom sending another meta-human to kill the Flash? And, most importantly, will Killer Frost be sporting her famous fur-lined snow boots? One of you answer me, I don’t care if you’re only guessing.
