Let’s Talk This Week’s Geeky TV: ‘The Flash’ Freezes Out Caitlin

11.22.16 1 year ago 102 Comments

Last week on The Flash, the Shade got overshadowed in a fit of irony, Wally was revealed to be an off-brand Inhuman, New Wells is even more of a goofball than we thought, and, most importantly, Cisco discovered that Caitlin was potentially going to go all bad guy. Also yesterday we discovered Dan is apparently incapable of reading a TV schedule (and will be soundly beaten): Only Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are taking breaks this week on the CW. It’s a Thanksgiving miracle!

Anyway, the show has arguably been building to this point. Barry’s attempts to solve his emotional problems by taking Cher songs seriously and turning back time haven’t just led to Alchemy imprisoning people in cocoons: They’ve somehow set up Caitlin to turn into the supervillain Killer Frost. Hey, if time travel can make the Diglet a boy, we guess it can give people superpowers.

The main question, of course, is how they’ll keep Caitlin around now that she’s gone full Frosty. I mean, really, they already have a villain with a cold gimmick. But no matter what, it has given us this GIF, that we will treasure forever:
