Before episode eight arrives as part two of the Heroes Vs. Aliens crossover mini-series, we have another exciting episode of The Flash to deal with. Episode seven is directed by cult favourite Kevin Smith, who also helmed The Runaway Dinosaur – one of the best Flash episodes of last year. This one looks to be a classic as well. Titled Killer Frost it, well, I’ll let the official synopsis speak for itself.
KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; KILLER FROST EMERGES — Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) uses her powers to save Barry (Grant Gustin) but as her mother predicted, the effort unleashes her inner Killer Frost. Killer Frost goes on a rampage looking for Dr. Alchemy, kidnapping Julian (Tom Felton) and battling both The Flash and Vibe (Carlos Valdes). Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) have a heart to heart talk.
If you’ve been watching The Flash this year, you’ll know that Dr Caitlin Snow has gained metahuman freezing powers since Barry switched up the timeline after the Flashpoint arc. In a plotline that is absolutely nothing like Elsa from Frozen, Caitlin has been keeping her icy abilities a secret from her loved ones in an effort to control them. In this episode, however, it looks like Caitlin will have to let it go as her secret gets out. But will she follow the path of her Earth-2 counterpart and become the villain Killer Frost? Only time will tell.
That said, these newly-released images (including a few behind-the-scenes snaps) certainly serve up some clues. Beware, what some may consider to be spoilers for the episode can be found below, so proceed with caution.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Felton, Keiynan Lonsdale and Danielle Panabaker. It airs on Tuesday nights on The CW.
