Now that the cat is out of the bag and Savitar’s true identity has finally been revealed, The Flash is free to run fast and loose in this season’s remaining three episodes. Aside from the big unmasking, Caitlin Snow has fully evolved into Killer Frost and, believe it or not, the producers have somehow managed to intertwine these two hugely important plot threads.
In this week’s #DCTV edition of DC All Access, co-host Hector Navarro, who may very well be the only person alive that didn’t figure out that Savitar was a future version of Barry Allen, had the distinct privilege of sitting down with actress Danielle Panabaker. And while their conversation was a bit brief, she did speak of how Killer Frost will return to S.T.A.R. Labs this week in order to forge an uneasy alliance with her former friends. From the look of it, she’s probably not laying all of her cards on the table and is instead serving the interests of herself and the self-proclaimed God of Speed.
What I also found to be quite interesting was how she said Killer Frost is here to stay. Recent set photos have hinted that a grim fate may await her, but it’s important to remember that nothing has been confirmed. Likewise, you never know when actors are throwing a curveball. We also can’t rule out the possibility of her taking a heroic turn if she does stick around for season 4, much like her comic book counterpart has done in Justice League of America.
One thing’s for certain: no matter what lies ahead, none of us will want to miss “Cause and Effect” tomorrow night.
