‘The Flash’ Season 3 Episode 18 Review

*Spoilers Below For Tonight’s Episode of The Flash*

After the catastrophe that was last week’s episode, The Flash more than made up for it tonight. Though Savitar isn’t directly in the episode, it is very interesting how Abra Kadabra teases Barry with knowing who Savitar is and how that affects Barry’s mentality going forward with trying to prevent the death of Iris. Seeing Kadabra cloud Barry’s judgement was nothing surprising, as we know he will stop at (almost) nothing to save his love. Of course, he comes to his senses and allows Gypsy to take Abra Kadabra away. This was fairly predictable but the lasting effect it has on Barry is very exciting. He has the epiphany that by traveling into the future he will be able to find the answers which will give him the knowledge he needs on how to defeat Savitar.

Having Abra Kadabra in S.T.A.R. Labs brought tragedy upon Caitlin as well. Though Julian was able to get the shrapnel out of her, she began flatlining. Julian then tore her power-dampening necklace off and before the end of the episode, she went full on Killer Frost. We are sure to see her butt heads with the team again, but it is unclear whether or not they will be able to talk her down again, given the headline about her being at large. If she does remain evil, it will be very interesting to see how they develop her in that direction.
