Flash Photos: Meet Caitlin's Icy Mom

In the wake of her chilling discovery at the close of this week’s episode, The Flash‘s Caitlin Snow will seek out her estranged mother for answers — as seen in these first photos from the Season 3 episode “Monsters.”

Desperate to understand what is happening to her, Caitlin (played by Danielle Panabaker) visits her mom, Dr. Tannhauser (The Vampire Diaries’ Susan Walters), a renowned biomedical researcher, in the hopes of getting some answers about her growing meta-human powers. But when Dr. Tannhauser treats her daughter like a test subject, “Caitlin grows cold” (says the CW synopsis) and brings up past wounds, causing the two to have a major blowout.

Elsewhere in the Nov. 1 episode, after a mysterious new meta-human attacks Central City, Barry tries to convince persnickety Julian to let him assist on the case. Good luck with that, Mr. Allen!

    My guess is Caitlin accidentally kills her Mom.

    I know she’s nervous but I hope she tells Barry and Cisco sooner rather than later. We can’t afford to lose Caitlin since Iris is the only other female character who is aloud to be around for more than a couple episodes at a stretch.

    I’m glad Caitlin’s getting an interesting storyline this season.

    great casting. Quite believable as mother and daughter based on appearances

    Just randomly, given her career and even though we are not sure what this character’s career is, but based on her daughter’s intelligence, wouldn’t be funny if Caitlyn’s mother mentions that Caitlyn has a younger sister or younger half sister who has her own issues. And we could all laugh because we could think she means Lydia from Teen Wolf where she also plays her mother. About two years ago there was talk that Lydia had a sister, but it went disappeared when they decided not to explore that further.

    I’m guessing that’s why they are lightening her hair. She was a lot darker when the show started. Here’s hoping she’ll be interesting now.
