The Flash Season 3 Episode 5 Preview: Cold as Caitlin

Caitlin’s frosty powers are growing as we saw her freeze the water in her shower, which let out so much power that her lips turned blue and a stripe of white appeared in her hair. Is Caitlin on the path to being Killer Frost, or will she use these powers for good?

The official synopsis of The Flash Season 3 Episode 5, “Monster,” is, “Caitlin visits her mother to help her understand her growing meta-human powers; Barry tries to convince Julian to let him help investigate a new meta-human that is attacking Central City.”

Many of us are hoping our beloved Dr. Snow doesn’t take the path her Earth-2 counterpart did. It is possible that Killer Frost could work for Team Flash; at one point in the comics, she was a part of the Justice League.

The Flash Season 3 Episode 5Plus, this Caitlin isn’t as snarky as her counterpart. She’s seen firsthand and experienced what death can do to a loved one, how could she ever inflict that pain on someone else?

What could her mother help her do? Smother her powers, or embrace hiding them from everyone? Caitlin’s abilities freed Barry from the mirror, and someone will find out about that. The only question is whether it will be too late, or not.

Meanwhile, there’s a new Harrison Wells in town. Is anyone else tired of him playing a new character every season? Give the man a break. Plus, this one seems to be evil, what a shocker. Sending out a pulse into the multiverse would only attract good guys, right? Not.

Mostly, we’re disappointed that Jesse is already gone. Having Jesse Quick around to help the Flash could’ve been useful, especially in the fight against Dr. Alchemy. Maybe they’re saving that role for Wally, though, once Alchemy gives him his powers from Flashpoint.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
