Things start of with a bang as Abra Kadabra tricks a couple of security guards into being imprisoned within a Chinese Water Torture Chamber. Sadly, they had no clue how to get out. Meanwhile, back at Central City, Iris shows off the ring that Barry used to propose to her…again. Out of excitement, Colleen invites them to a Broadway show the first week in July. This brings up all kinds of visions because it’s the week that Iris is supposed to be killed by Savitar. A new crime scene calls Joe and Barry away.
The team encounters Abra Kadabra for a second time, but this time it’s at another tech company. It seems like Abra is trying to build something, but what could it be? Barry is able to eventually capture him, but runs into a bit of a problem. Gypsy is ready to return to her Earth, but Barry requests for some time with him. Unfortunately, he’s unable to get anything useful out of him. Cisco, however, finds out that Gypsy has a more personal vendetta against him. At the West household, the discussion continues over what to do with Abra, but it looks like Joe has beaten everyone to the punch by making a deal with the devil. In exchange for his release, Abra would have to give up Savitar’s real identity. Just as he’s about to spill the beans, Gypsy shows up and distracts Joe enough to allow Abra to get away.
Barry asks Abra Kadabra for his help one last time, but he continues to withhold the one piece of information that could help save Iris. Gypsy opens a portal and goes back to her Earth. Back in the recovery room, Caitlin is resting well. She jokes with Cisco but then goes into shock. Her heart stops beating and Julian tries to revive her. After failing to do so, he rips off the chain from around her neck. The episode then ends with the death of Caitlin Snow and the rebirth of Killer Frost.
It was inevitable that Killer Frost would make a come back. And she definitely came back in dramatic fashion. So what does this mean for Caitlin Snow? Is this the last fans have seen of her? It’s hard to imagine the series without her always there to help the team. She’s become a staple and it would be quite a shame for her to not be there. However, in the loss of Caitlin Snow, the show gains an iconic villain in Killer Frost. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out for the remainder of the season and if it continues into the next.
Notch this up as another solid episode. It definitely ranks up there a top episode for season three.
The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW at 8 PM EST. The show returns with all new episodes on April 25.
