The season finale of The Flash threw so many things at us over the course of an hour. Barry went back in time to save his mom, but didn't actually save her. Eddie DIED. Eobard Thawne evaporated into dust, basically. There's also a wormhole, but that's talk for another day. Through all of this, you might have missed a huge thing that happened so fast, it was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment. We saw Killer Frost on The Flash as Barry ran through the Speed Force in the wormhole.
DC Comics villain Killer Frost has been teased since the very beginning, which makes sense because her alter ego, Caitlin Snow, is a huge part of The Flash. So right from the get go, many fans assumed that at some point, Caitlin would become Frost. As of of late, it's been teased a lot, by both the creators and producers of The Flash, as well as actress Danielle Panabaker. We were told we'd be seeing Killer Frost sooner rather than later, and that's reason enough to get excited. But actually seeing her for real? Hell. Yes.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Andrew Kreisberg explained that Killer Frost is happening. When exactly is still up in the air, but she's coming. He also offered up a few other surprising tidbits, explaining, "You’ve got Wells telling Cisco that he was affected, but when we saw in the speed force, we saw Caitlin really and truly affected. Whether that happens next year or the year after that, we’ll have to wait and see what the speed force tells us to do." So did he just confirm that Caitlin is a metahuman too, or at least will become one? HELL YES. Check out this video footage of the brief but epic appearance.
And if you don't believe Panabaker is the one behind that villainous persona, Kreisberg confirmed it on Twitter.
So Killer Frost might not actually be in The Flash timeline and reality that we're in right now, but her existence — in some universe — has been confirmed. We've seen the other side of Caitlin now, and there's no turning back. Please let the age of Killer Frost begin soon, Flash.
