‘The Flash’ Season 2: Danielle Panabaker Discusses The Six Month Time Leap, Killer Frost, And More [Spoilers]

The Flash Season 2, if one thing can be said about it, is going to be chock full of new characters. In The Flash Season 1 finale, fans got a glimpse of possible future characters during a time-travel sequence. The Flash fans can expect to see some of these foreshadowed characters showing up in Season 2.

Danielle Panabaker, actor behind the part of Caitlyn Snow, was in one such vision that gave us a glimpse of how her character might change in Season 2.

For The Flash fans who are still pushing their way through Season 1, please be aware there are some spoilers ahead. Continue reading at your own risk.

Comicbook.com reports that Danielle Panabaker sat down at DragonCon, and told fans just what she knows about her future role as the metahuman Killer Frost.

“”No one is more excited for Caitlin to become Killer Frost than I am. Unfortunately I don’t know when that will happen on the show. The writers will say, ‘Well this is what’s going to happen. We’re looking forward to this. This is what we’re thinking.’ And then scripts evolve, sometimes they don’t make it into the script as soon as you hope, sometimes we shoot things that don’t even make it into the show. I think our season finale was [an extra] 20 minutes long, so that’s 20 minutes of stuff that they cut out of storylines. Little things, like they explained how Caitlin asked Barry to go get her wedding dress, and they explained the toilets in the pipeline, and that sort of thing. But since we only have 42, 44 minutes, some stuff just sort of falls to the cutting-room floor. Long story short, I’m useless in terms of Killer Frost. I want it to happen very, very badly. Unfortunately I don’t know that it’s happening yet.”

Danielle Panabaker, unfortunately, seemed to be as out of the loop as The Flash fans themselves. Before The Flash Season 1 came to a close, the Inquisitr reported that Panabaker had been regularly bugging producer Andrew Kreisberg for information about Killer Frost and the future of Caitlyn Snow. Sadly, for now, Danielle Panabaker and Flash fans remain in the dark on Killer Frost.

Panabaker also discussed the black hole, or singularity, that left Flash fans hanging at the end of Season 1. As it was previously reported by the International Business Times UK, The Flash Season 2 will pick up six months after the events of the Season 1 finale, which has many fans confused. Panabaker did say the first episode of the Season 2 will address those events.

“The season premiere will address some stuff from the finale; it’s not like there’s some title card that just says, ‘Six months later’. We will deal with the singularity and everything that’s going on.”

The time-lapse certainly creates more questions than they are willing to answer. It will be interesting to see if the show explains the past six months through flashbacks in just the first episode or if the flashbacks will continue over the course of Season 2, à la Arrow style. The Flash fans will just have to wait and see. Season 2 begins airing on The CW network on October 6.
