Critic reviews for The Icicle Cometh

Much needed development for Caitlin/Killer Frost. But it would have served the story if the side plots for the episode were placed elsewhere throughout the season.

A rough episode for The Flash. It was basically a snoozer paying off one of the season's most underwhelming subplots.

It set up a new villain rather effectively, it brought back an old alley and it was all presented in a greatly frosty way.

"The Icicle Cometh" is a solid C+ level episode for The Flash. There's not a lot to write home about, but there's plenty to smile about with just enough progression to not make it all a waste.

All the build-up was a letdown, especially as a Killer Frost fanatic.

Although The Flash Season 5 Episode 6 was a little slower paced than the previous few, it had no shortages of twists and turns. All of which paid off in full.
