Danielle Panabaker Talks About Why Caitlin Is Fearful Of Her Powers

Danielle Panabaker

The Flash season three has brought about many changes through Flashpoint but one of the characters that have been impacted the most is Caitlin Snow, played by Danielle Panabaker. In season two of Flash, Killer Frost, Snow’s doppelganger was introduced as the complete villainous opposite to Caitlin.

This season has shown that she is developing those powers. Panabaker opened up to Entertainment Weekly about why her character is so fearful about these changes.

“It’s definitely been a challenging couple of months. At first, she doesn’t really know what to make of her powers. She’s experimenting a little bit, as we saw in episode 4, and it’s getting to the point where she knows she needs help and she’s not ready to go to Team Flash yet, because I don’t think she knows what she’s going to say. So she goes to her mom as another expert in the medical field, and tries to get some assistance from her mom, but she’s not quite as successful as she’d hoped.”

Panabaker also addressed why she hasn’t opened up to “Team Flash” yet about these developing powers.

“Absolutely. After hearing [about], and briefly meeting, Killer Frost at the end of season 2, I think she’s terrified that could be her future. She said to Cisco at the end of last season, “I’m scared, I don’t want to become her,” as she was suffering from her PTSD after everything with Zoom. It is something that she’s very afraid of and cognizant of and trying to avoid.”

As a fan, Panabaker is ready for Snow to embrace these powers and start exploring her potential.

“I’ve been bugging everyone just as long as the fans have been bugging me about my excitement for getting powers. It’s been such a treat. I’m so excited about it, and excited to see what it means for Caitlin this year.”
