The Season 8 finale, Negative, Part 2, has opened a lot of doors for The Flash Season 9. From the returning cast to the new season’s plot, here’s everything you need to know.

The Flash Season 9 Plot and Other Major Details


Season 8 ended with two scenes that set the stage for the new season to begin. The first one featured Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) resurrecting Frost with the help of Mark “Chillblaine” Blaine (Jon Cor).

The first part of the two-part finale showed Chillblaine locking Caitlin inside a pod that could reawaken Frost’s personality within Caitlin’s body.

In the second part, Chillblaine woke up with a warning that the pod had malfunctioned. He tried his best to get Caitlin out of the pod, but an unseen figure came out of it.

When Chillblaine asked who it was, it simply said, “A friend…I think,” with Caitlin’s voice.

Deadline noted Iris (Candice Patton) and Barry knew the negative force needed to have a new avatar, knowing the universe is all about balance. By the looks of it, that avatar is this unseen character voiced by Panabaker.

Screenrant added that Chillblaine might have resurrected Frost in a different form, transforming Caitlin into the villainous Killer Frost or an entirely new persona in The Flash Season 9.

It’s also possible that the avatar Barry and Iris were talking about was the glowing blue crystal in the science lab, which fans believed could hint at the coming of the villain Cobalt Blue.
