While stopping Savitar and saving Iris (Candice Patton) remains the major focus on "The Flash," things got very interesting at the end of March 28's "Abra Kadabra." After guiding Julian (Tom Felton) through performing surgery on her, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) succumbed to her injuries and died -- or so we thought.
Julian just wouldn't let that happen though, ripping off the necklace that keeps her meta power at bay and unleashing Killer Frost. Completely healed and ready to cause mayhem, it looks like Frost is going to play a major role in the rest of Season 3 -- and we couldn't be any happier about it.
Viewers have gotten small tastes of Caitlin's villainous alter ego before, but our favorite Earth-1 doctor has always gone out of her way to not let the power brewing inside control her.
That's a thing of the past now, though. It was clear that not only had her powers come to the forefront but it was Killer Frost at the wheel and not Caitlin. While the timing may not be great for Team Flash -- especially as Barry (Grant Gustin) gears up to visit the future -- it's an exciting development and one that should be fun to watch play out.
After all, there hasn't been a lot going on with Caitlin in Season 3. While she had a short story arc with her mother when the Killer Frost powers started rearing their head, since then most of her time has been wrapped up in whether or not she should date Julian. Now she gets to let out her inner baddie.
The big question is what this will mean long-term for Caitlin. She could end up being a big bad in Season 4... Or, she could also gain control over her powers and put them to use in helping the team.
Honestly, we can't decide which would be the better option. Regardless, we're excited to see where Killer Frost's story goes from here.
"The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
