Could Caitlin Get Killed Off In The Flash Finale?

Caitlin Snow The Flash CW Season 3 Death

Recent rumors have indicated someone is dying towards the end of Season 3 of The Flash, and the buzz is substantial enough to have us wondering if Caitlin Snow is on her way out. If you've been curious as well, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg shares a bit of info behind Caitlin's fate in the quote below:

Obviously Danielle Panabaker is not going anywhere. How and if she becomes Caitlin Snow again, or she remains Killer Frost or a version of Killer Frost, into season 4, you're going to have to tune in.

That would answer the question on most shows that weren't The Flash, but just because Danielle Panabaker is still around, that doesn't mean she's the Caitlin Snow we've known for 3 seasons. We've reported on that a funeral is presumably happening towards the end of Season 3, and there's reason to believe Caitlin could be the casualty when the dust settles on Savitar. Even if we see do her six feet under come the season finale, she's already cheated death once. Who's to say Caitlin's meta powers couldn't save her again if given the time?

The important thing to note is that, whether or not Earth-1 protagonist Caitlin Snow bites the dust in Season 3, Danielle Panabaker is to remain with the show in whatever capacity Season 4. While Andrew Kreisberg confirms Panabaker isn't going anywhere to EW, he also stated that a lot of this season has been tied to saving Caitlin's soul just as much as it has been about saving Iris' life. While you contemplate that, read up on what Kreisberg has to say about Caitlin's transformation:

I don't know if we'll even be able to see Caitlin again, but as you'll see in episode 21, it becomes clear that Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost do occupy the same body and that they have the same memories. The things Caitlin remembers, Killer Frost can access as well. It's more a question of if she chooses to and how she feels about Caitlin's memories. I do think it will be difficult not only for Caitlin but all of team flash to reconcile Killer Frost's bad behavior under the guise Caitlin Snow's face.

That's a good quote to stew on as you wait for the next episode of The Flash. We're spending all this time focusing on whether or not Caitlin lives when we should be focusing on who this future Barry is and why he wants to kill Iris so bad. Personally, I think Savitar's reveal should've been someone else, but was relieved he wasn't who others thought. You know it's a Flash finale when you have absolutely no idea what's coming next!

Speaking of which, be sure to tune in Tuesday nights on The CW at 8 p.m. on The CW, and to see when all your other favorite shows are coming to a close, check out our handy finale guide. And be sure find some new shows once your favorites end, via our summer premiere schedule.
