Welcome back to Up To Speed, in which Flash TV show veteran Dylan Todd and newbie Ziah Grace break down the latest episode of The Flash, dispense some Flash Facts, and talk about what works, what doesn’t, and where the series might be headed.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday, actor Danielle Panabaker confirmed that her Flash TV show character Caitlin Snow will eventually take on her comic book alter ego, the supervillain Killer Frost, stating, "from the beginning I knew that Caitlin Snow becomes Killer Frost.

Even with the April 16 release of Injustice: Gods Among Us just weeks away, there are still two playable combatants yet to be formally revealed in NetherRealm's fighting game lineup.
