*Spoilers Below For Tonight’s Episode Of The Flash*
Tonight on The Flash we have had many of our questions answered. We’ve learned Savitar’s connection to Dr. Alchemy, we’ve learned Alchemy’s identity, and we’ve learned Wally’s fate outside the cocoon.
As it turns out, Alchemy is just a puppet of Savitar. This is an interesting dynamic because we still don’t know what Savitar’s end goal is. Why has he sent Alchemy to go and return all of these powers to those who got them in Flashpoint? It’s hard to say at this point, but it probably won’t be long before we see his plot unfold.
What’s even more interesting is that Dr. Alchemy is Julian. Many, including myself, thought this might be the case seeing that both of these characters are new this season and Julian hasn’t been exactly the friendliest to Barry. When we see this revealed at the end of the episode, we hear Savitar calling out to him, though he doesn’t seem to want to put the Alchemy mask back on.
It was a bit of a surprise to see Joe act so irrationally and try to cut Wally out of the cocoon. His body was shaking uncontrollably and he appeared similarly to how Reverse Flash always appeared in Season 1. Luckily the injection Barry gave him stabilized him and is now training to inevitably become Kid Flash. Ever since the first episode of the season, myself and many others have been waiting to see Wally as a speedster back in the normal universe.
A lot of the focus tonight was on Caitlin becoming Killer Frost. She harmed both Barry and Julian, seemingly without remorse, as well as spilling to everyone the it’s Barry’s fault Cisco’s brother is dead. It is unclear right now if Cisco and Barry will patch things up or if there will now always be a disconnect between the two. But Barry was able to bring Caitlin back to her senses by trying to force her to kill him, knowing that she wouldn’t be able to. It’s puzzling right now whether or not we will see Caitlin revert back to Killer Frost or if she will continue to wear the power-dampening cuffs until the team can come up with a way to cure her permanently.
