The CW has released the official synopsis for the fifth episode of The Flash, titled “Monster”. It will air on November 1st. Spoilers behind the jump.
CAITLIN CALLS ON HER MOTHER FOR HELP WITH HER GROWING META POWERS — Desperate to understand what is happening to her, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) visits her mother, Dr. Tannhauser (guest star Susan Walters), a renowned biomedical researcher, in the hopes that her mother can provide some answers about Caitlin’s growing meta-human powers. However, when Dr. Tannhauser treats her daughter like a test subject, Caitlin grows cold and brings up past wounds causing the two to have a major blowout. Meanwhile, after a mysterious new meta-human attacks Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) tries to convince Julian (Tom Felton) to let him assist on the case.
Kim Miles directed the episode written by Zack Stentz. The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. “Monster” debuts on November 1.
This will be our first time seeing Caitlin’s mother, though she’s been mentioned before as an unkind woman Caitlin doesn’t get along with. Sounds like their interaction won’t go well, which should have consequences for Caitlin’s powers and future. We know there’s an upcoming episode titled “Killer Frost”.
And IGN did an interview with showrunner Todd Helbing, in which he talks about the consequences of the season premiere “Flashpoint” episode, Barry’s relationship with co-worker Julian Albert, and some of the upcoming villains we’ll soon be seeing. Keep in mind that there are spoilers.
