In season 2 of the CW superhero hit series, The Flash, two important characters, Patty Spivot (Shantel Yvonne VanSanten) and the villain Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker), were introduced. As season 3 is drawing near, there have been rumors and reports that these two will make a comeback.
Patty Spivot first appeared hunting for the Weather Wizard (Liam McIntyre) to avenge her father’s death. She became Joe’s (Jesse L. James) partner in hunting down metahumans in the Central City Police District. For a time, she became Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) love interest. However, after a series of misunderstanding with Barry, she decided to leave Central City and pursue her dreams as a CSI.
There are rumors surfacing that the actress might come back in season 3 and into Barry’s life, Comic Book reports. The actress said in an interview during the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest event that there is a strong possibility that Spivot will return.
It can be remembered that VanSanten posted on her Instagram account a few months ago that her character’s life is not in her hands. That might serve as a hint regarding the fate of her character in the series. Despite these rumors, there hasn’t been any news which episode Spivot will return.
Aside from Spivot, the villain Frost is also set to return in season 3 of The Flash. The news came after Kevin Smith tweeted a photo of episode 3 which he will direct. The episode titled “Killer Frost,” reveals that the Central City speedster will once again battle the ice-cold villain.
In season 2, Killer Frost was the alternate personality in Earth 2 of Team Flash and S.T.A.R. Labs doctor, Caitlin Snow. In Earth 2, she is part of Hunter Solomon’s team of metahumans who sow fear in that universe’s Central City. She tried to kill Caitlin as a revenge for killing Ronnie (Robbie Amell) but she was stopped and killed by Zoom.
There is a theory that Killer Frost will return as a different version, much like how Cisco (Carlos Valdes) returned, which s a possibility with the Flashpoint happening. With that in mind, there might be several other changes in season 3.
