With the trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, “Monster,” focusing heavily on the threat of a Kaiju-like beast and Earth-19 Harrison Wells – and understandably so – I find it quite refreshing that this generous bounty of promotional stills offer a glimpse at another major running plot thread.
What I’m referring to is that of Caitlin Snow’s gradual transition to becoming Killer Frost, which we’ve been led to believe will be come to fruition sooner rather than later. Perhaps she and the rest of us will get some answers as to what the heck is going on when she pays a visit to her mother, Dr. Tannhauser. With Caitlin previously having met her villainous Earth-2 counterpart, seeing her emotionally grapple with this transformation should make for some compelling television, to say the least.
Our titular hero, The Flash, is also not forgotten and factors heavily into the above gallery. And, although we don’t see him battling the monster itself, we do get some crisp shots of him dealing with this dire situation – even Iris seems to be getting a piece of the action!
For more details, check out the official synopsis below:
CAITLIN CALLS ON HER MOTHER FOR HELP WITH HER GROWING META POWERS – Desperate to understand what is happening to her, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) visits her mother, Dr. Tannhauser (guest star Susan Walters), a renowned biomedical researcher, in the hopes that her mother can provide some answers about Caitlin’s growing meta-human powers. However, when Dr. Tannhauser treats her daughter like a test subject, Caitlin grows cold and brings up past wounds causing the two to have a major blowout. Meanwhile, after a mysterious new meta-human attacks Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) tries to convince Julian (Tom Felton) to let him assist on the case. Kim Miles directed the episode written by Zack Stentz (#305). Original airdate 11/1/2016.
The Flash airs on Tuesday nights on The CW.
