'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 18: Danielle Panabaker sits with pillows, fans say she's trying to hide baby bump
Danielle Panabaker's Killer Frost decides to leave the show for a while, but fans say they don't have time for this plot
Things are getting incredibly stressful in 'The Flash'. Godspeed has returned and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has to defeat him with the little power that he has. Not just this, he is distraught over Iris (Candice Patton), who is still stuck in the Mirrorverse. Emotions are running high between him and Cisco (Carlos Valdes). And now he has to seek help from an old friend to defeat Godspeed. So, it's full of tension and worry.
In the middle of all this, a Killer Frost subplot has been phoned in and this isn't going down well with fans. Killer Frost has 'things to sort out' with her mom and it's an obvious ruse to cover up the actor Danielle Panabaker's pregnancy, but fans say that with all that's happening right now, there's no time for this.
A fan wrote, "Caitlin has mommy issues. Killer frost has issues with caitlin's mom. Why should i care about this right now? Is it going to lead to something? #theflash."
"I am over Caitlin and her mommy issues. Move on already," tweeted another fan.
"Obvious pregnancy cover-up is obvious," a viewer sarcastically wrote.
"I see that this is how they were planning to write Caitlin/Frost off while Danielle went on maternity leave," a fan tweeted.
"I just don't care about Killer Frost," a fan tweeted while another wrote, "Bruh, no time for a Caitlin subplot."
"Where is Caitlin going? I'm confused. And I'm guessing Caitlin is just lounging around because Danielle was pregnant at the time and was due soon?"
"Why are they dragging out this episode with Ralph and Snow?" a fan wrote.
However, others were not as dismissive and said that they would miss Killer Frost/ Caitlin, and one person even wrote that she was the "only interesting" person on the show.
Others couldn't help but point out the numerous pillows placed in front of Danielle Panabaker to cover up her pregnancy. "Guys, we know that Danielle Panabaker was pregnant. You don't have to pull a Walking Dead and strategically, and badly, place a pillow in front of the baby bump," a fan wrote.
'The Flash' airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on The CW.
