Dr. Thomas Snow is finally coming to ‘The Flash‘ as Kyle Secor (‘Veronica Mars,’ ‘The Purge: Election Year’) has been cast in the role. Danielle Panabaker’s Caitlin Snow likely won’t be looking to make up for lost time with her father unless he can further her goal of regaining the powers and persona of Killer Frost which she lost near the end of last season.
Secor’s character is being described as “an extremely intelligent geneticist who has been MIA for decades. Upon returning to Central City, he will try his best to make up for lost time with Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker). But what Caitlin doesn’t know is that Thomas is hiding a big secret — because he wouldn’t be a new Arrowverse character without one.”
The episode of “Think Fast” gave us a flashback that showed Caitlin had the powers when she was younger. It might be related to her father’s work that caused them in the first place. Dr. Snow’s appearance will take place after she goes to her mother, Dr. Carla Tannhauser who is played by Susan Walters.
According to executive producer Todd Helbing:
“[Carla] is the one she goes to first for answers. You’re going to learn about what role her mother played in all of this, and there is that mysterious premonition that Cecile had at the end of last year about Thomas. So you’re going to learn about exactly who he is and how he plays into the season and Caitlin and Killer Frost, and really just that whole mystery about where she comes from and how she was created is explained.”
