Near episode's end, Caitlin tells Harry that when her alter ego is control of her body, she doesn't know what Killer Frost says and does. But in "The Flash: When Harry Met Harry...", she mentions to Barry that Killer Frost once attended the Burning Man festival; if Caitlin's personality is suppressed that much when Killer Frost emerges, that's a memory she shouldn't have.

Jesse Wells: What's this?
Dr. Harry Wells: That is a, uh, mental activity dampener. It's for D.A. Cecile Horton. It keeps her from hearing other people's thoughts.
Jesse Wells: Kinda clunky.
Dr. Harry Wells: [with a laugh] That's what she said. Literally, that's what she said. The second version's more streamlined.

A Wrinkle in Flashtime
7 March 2018 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

There's nothing quite like a one-off episode of an Arrowverse show that hits all the right buttons. It's often frustrating seeing a show go from one 'big bad' centric episode to a 'filler' week of TV, but Enter Flashtime proved there's more you can do to keep the audience's interest than throw in a villain of the week episode.

This episode was like a sci-fi nerd's dream. The show is always dropping unnecessarily long science fiction terms and phrases that make no sense, and there was definitely some of that here too. But this episode took Barry's speed and the presence of Jay & Jessie to create a fascinating 45 minute sequence of flashtime insanity. There's no real villain of importance, nor do we even get a glimpse of DeVoe's whereabouts, but there was absolutely no need to. Watching the 3 speedsters try to figure out how to get rid of a nuclear bomb while everyone else is frozen was more than enough for me.

On a side note, there was a small piece of information dropped tonight about how DeVoe has been planning his destruction of Barry Allen for 3 years. Which, pretty much only further complicates his reasoning, or lack thereof.

Another piece of news is that Jay is training another speedster on his Earth. Does this have anything to do with Jessica Parker Kennedy's mystery character? Or is this just a completely new character to be introduced as a one-off later this year? At any rate, I quite enjoyed both Jay and Jessie's presence in this episode. Made me miss season 2 a little bit. Never thought I would say that.
