2. What Is Caitlin's Connection to Khione?
With a little help from her friends, in this week's episode of The Flash, Caitlin discovers some of her dad's old labs and another secret message. This one spells "Khione", who is the Greek Goddess of snow. All these clues seem to reveal one thing: that Thomas knew about his daughter's other persona. But is he the one who caused it through an experiment gone wrong? Or is there some deeper connection between Caitlin and this goddess? Is The Flash going mythical on us?
The more Caitlin learns about her father, the more she worries about what the truth will reveal. She loved him, but he left her. If he chooses to leave while knowing about Killer Frost, this could do more to hurt Caitlin than help her. She already has started to blame herself for his disappearance and confirmation of that could ruin the faith she has in Thomas. Caitlin already has a rocky relationship with her mother, so being betrayed by both of her parents could come as an even bigger blow.
1. What Actually Was Ragdoll's Plan?
The Flash's villain of the week, Ragdoll (played by real-life contortionist Troy James) was pretty freaky. His body could move in ways no body should and the sounds of his bones crunching are pretty hard to get out of your head. However, his motives are super unclear. It seems that because of the coldness of his own mother, he wanted to inflict as much personal damage on others as possible. This includes stealing a sentimental heirloom and destroying an architect's life's work.
But what did those random people do to him? How did he know how what would hurt these strangers the most? Why would he attack Barry and Iris specifically when there must be thousands of other couples in Central City he can choose from? What did he even accomplish besides petty theft and destruction of property? Usually, the bad guy or girl of the week doesn't have the strongest motives, but this one was even flimsier than most.
The Flash season 5 continues with episode 6, " The Icicle Cometh", on Tuesday, November 20th at 8 PM on the CW.
