‘The Flash’ season 2, episode 19 review: Killer Frost’s return, Zoom’s killer move, and Wells’ big move
Tonight, “The Flash” brought us an episode entitled “Back To Normal” that was certainly far from that. Barry didn’t have his powers, Caitlin was trapped on Earth-2, and if this wasn’t enough, we also had Wally West desperate to stage a meeting with our title hero.
In the midst of what also seemed to be a relatively ho-hum episode at first, there were also two HUGE shockers that could change everything moving forward.
Zoom’s killer move – RIP Killer Frost? This is something we definitely didn’t see coming, given that this Earth-2 version of Caitlin Snow is a notorious villain in the DC Universe. Hopefully, we’re still going to see Earth-1 Caitlin become her eventually, since otherwise this would feel like somewhat of a cop-out to only show us so much of this character. Killer Frost died after she tried to convince Caitlin to help her escape his lair, and she was actually betrayed by her the moment she got her doppelganger out.
Also, the Man in the Iron Mask was around, but there’s still no telling who he really s.
Griffin Grey – This was our villain of the week, a super-strong meta-human who is also suffering from growing older every time he uses his powers. The whole purpose of him, beyond Harry reuniting with his daughter Jesse, seemed to be Harry realizing that he needed to pay still for what he did with the Particle Accelerator accident … by creating another one? Odd logic, but he’s going all-in on getting Barry his powers back so that he can ensure that Zoom is stopped once and for all. It’s a chance for him to be a hero after spending so much time feeling like a villain.
With this, we suddenly have a new way for Killer Frost to return, and a way for Barry to get his speed one more. Episode Grade: B+.
