It’s no secret that when I first started watching The Flash I was no fan of Dr. Caitlin Snow. There was just something about her that annoyed me to no end. I have since come around in my thinking. She’s still not my favorite character on the show and if they ever did kill her off I wouldn’t cry over it, but I am no longer actively and vocally wishing for her to disappear; so that’s saying a lot.
In fact, I want her to get her own storyline because as of right now she literally has no reason to be there. None. I’m sorry Caitlin fans but as far as I can tell the writers don’t really have a clue what to do with her. And every time I think they’re going to do something with her they pull back & leave her – pun intended- out in the cold. It’s as if they’re scared to focus on anyone other than Barry for any extended length of time.
To this, I implore the writers to let Barry share the spotlight every so often. Not every episode needs to be Barry-centric. Lets give Caitlin something to do other than propping up Cisco, Wells, or even Julian now that he’s Team Flash. I thought we were gonna get something going when Caitlin’s mom was introduced, but that ended adding up to nothing. Which is a shame because whether they’re willing to admit it or not, there was some good stuff there.
At this point, I’m hoping they let Caitlin go full on Killer Frost. I mean I want her to embrace that side of her personality with glee. None of this torn between good & evil crap. One of the things I’ve always loved about D.C. villains is they relish in being the bad guy. They get off on it. Being a villain fills them with pride. Why not let Caitlin join them in the fun. Lord knows she’s not doing anything else right now.
