Posted on

Caitlin Snow needs help.

After using her frosty powers to break Barry (Grant Gustin) out of his mirror prison during Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, Caitlin’s (Danielle Panabaker) newfound powers went into overdrive, causing her lips to go icy blue and her hair to turn Elsa white. In other words, she’s becoming Killer Frost.

During next week’s episode, Caitlin will turn to her mother, Dr. Tannhauser (Susan Walters), for help. Though they’ve always had an icy relationship, Caitlin believes her biomedical researcher of a mother may be able to provide answers about her growing meta-human powers. Naturally, their reunion will open old wounds, leading to a major blowout.
