New Photos From The Flash Reveal Caitlin’s Father


Even though The Flash was forced to take this past Tuesday off due to it being Election Day in the United States, The CW are still keeping busy when it comes to promoting the Scarlet Speedster.

In fact, it wasn’t very long ago when we were treated a bounty of images taken from next week’s episode, “All Doll’d Up,” which’ll obviously feature the debut of the delightfully creepy Rag Doll. But, to our surprise, the network has already released pics from the adventure to follow, so let’s discuss that right now, shall we?

Gripping as the mystery surrounding Cicada may be, I’m sure a fair amount of you are dying to know more about the situation involving Caitlin Snow, the loss of her Killer Frost alter ego, and how she came to be. From the look of it, we’re going to be provided some serious answers in “The Icicle Cometh,” and you can check out a gallery from said episode below.

What’s especially noteworthy here is that one photo shows Kyle Secor in his debut as Caitlin’s father, whom I’m assuming to be the one responsible for her gaining metahuman abilities. Furthermore, I’m thinking it’s safer to say he’ll serve as the Arrowverse’s iteration of Icicle, given how everyone other than him is donning a parka in the relevant scene.

Don’t forget, “Cameron Mahkent” was the name scrawled on his forged death certificate, so odds are that was the producers’ nod toward the comic book version. But when adaptations such as these are crafted and the creative minds must keep viewers on their toes, well, deviations can be forgiven.

For more info, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:

CAITLIN LEARNS SOMETHING NEW ABOUT HER FATHER – Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) learn something new about Caitlin’s father (guest star Kyle Secor).

The Flash airs on Tuesday nights on The CW, with “The Icicle Cometh” being slated for a November 20th debut.
