Killer Frost Returns, Wells Comes Up with a Crazy Plan on “The Flash”

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “Back to Normal,” tonight’s episode of “The Flash.”


In “Back to Normal,” tonight’s episode of “The Flash,” Killer Frost made a comeback — but not for long.

As Caitlin explored Zoom’s lair for the first time, she bumped into her Earth-2 doppelganger and the two instantly hatched a plan to break out and escape together. If that sounds a bit too good to be true, you’re right; as soon as Caitlin busted Killer Frost out of her cell, Killer Frost turned and attempted to kill her with an icicle. Fortunately for Caitlin (and not-so-fortunately for Killer Frost), Zoom arrived just in time and snatched the icicle out of the air just before it hit her. He then drove said icicle into Killer Frost’s chest, killing her almost instantly. As it turns out, Zoom was only keeping her around because she looked like Caitlin. However, since he now has Caitlin, there was no need to spare her.

After putting Killer Frost on ice, Zoom chained Caitlin back up to the bed. As she begged him to go home, she gave him an idea. Earth-2 was already on its knees; why must he stop there? With that, he scooped Caitlin up and dashed off, presumably to begin his domination of the multiverse — first stop, Earth-1.

Additionally, the episode saw Harrison Wells come up with a plan to restore Barry’s powers. As he revealed to Barry at the end of the episode, he thinks he can recreate the effects of the particle accelerator, which gave Barry his abilities in the first place, in an attempt to restore his lost speed. Because of his encounter with Griffin Grey, Wells felt inspired to right the wrongs of his (kind of) Earth-1 doppelganger, and thus came up with this crazy — and potentially deadly — plan. As seen in the previews for next week, this doesn’t go over too well with either of Barry’s father figures.

In a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it moment, Wells also dropped his nickname for his daughter: Jesse Quick. If that sounds familiar, that’s because Jesse Quick is also a speedster in her own right in the comics. The name was originally an alias for Jesse Chambers, the Flash’s fellow speedster and the daughter of DC Comics heroes Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle; like her father, she achieves her super speed through the speed formula. Though Wells is no Johnny Quick, the parallels between them are clear.

Starring Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes and Jesse L. Martin, “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 pm EST on The CW.
