The Flash S7E07 – “Growing Pains”

I’m totally here for a Frost centric episode!

Spoilers Below

I was so excited when Caitlin Snow and Frost (Danielle Panabaker) split into two people. I always missed one of them during episodes. What could be better than getting both?! Unfortunately, that could be short-lived. But that will be determined in the next episode.

We knew Kristen Kramer (Carmen Moore) was going after her no matter what. Then, when there was a murder with ice, she automatically assumed it was Frost. But as Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) pointed out, Frost has never killed anyone. And her reply was, “until now.”

It makes total sense that Frost’s crimes would catch up with her eventually. And Frost made the right choice to face her crimes.

Danielle is such a great actress. She went between Frost and Caitlin so seamlessly. She also showed us growth in Frost. It was an incredible storyline for her to take us on. I hope that we will get to see more of Frost.

No one expected Frost to lay low for long. Especially when she found out someone was framing her for murder. It turns out it was a hot human guy. Well, Frost found him hot. He did play a good little game. Acting like he was giving her information while only leading her into a trap to get the last piece he needed to get her power. But of course, no surprise, he wasn’t able to overcome her. Frost is a badass, after all.

It was also fun to see Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight) and Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) being more integrated into the team. It’s feeling more and more like New Team Arrow, or in this case New Team Flash. I like Chester and Allegra, just like I liked the NTA members, but there’s always something about the original team that stays with you.

This is why when Caitlin was arrested, I was so mad. Kristin told Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) to think about the public good. Well, Caitlin being in jail does no good to the public. She has helped save the city countless times.

As much as these moments annoy me, I also enjoy the surprises. I never saw them arresting Caitlin or Joe being the one to put the handcuffs on her. Half of the fun of watching Team Flash is seeing them overcome all of these things.

While Frost was trying to clear her name, Barry dealt with the Speed Force (Michelle Harrison) being in a different form. I wasn’t sure if it was because she was the shape of his mother or if it was just weird seeing the Speed Force in this way. It was the latter. But of course, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) was able to help him come to terms with it. It was a sweet conversation about him trying to find a new relationship with the Speed Force, which does seem very strange, but Caitlin and Frost are now separate. Anything is possible.

Having both of them may help defeat the first of season seven’s big bads, too. These new forces are more dangerous than anything they’ve ever faced before.

Do you think we’ll be saying goodbye to Frost? Even if just for a little while. Tweet @Fandomopolis or comment below.
