The Flash 3.07 “Killer Frost” Top 5

Danielle Panabaker as Caitlyn Snow / Killer Frost

Hoo, boy, there’s a lot going on in this week’s episode of The Flash – Savitar is on the scene, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) is in a cocoon, and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is fighting her inner demons.

Following his sojourn in the Speed Force, Barry (Grant Gustin) is back in action against Zoom (Teddy Sears) and his army of Earth-2 metas.

The Flash 2.04 “The Fury of Firestorm” Review

The mint chip obsession in the DC TV universe is strong, but an ice cream addiction is the best possible outcome when you’re frequently losing friends in battle. The most recent loss in The Flash universe being Ronnie Raymond. In The Fury of Firestorm, we saw a new hero take up that mantle. It’s never the easiest thing to see beloved heroes replaced, but that pain is eased by a couple of things. First of all, we know Ronnie isn’t gone for good. Secondly, Jefferson Jackson (Jax) turned out to…
