"Frost was always the fearless Snow sister. Like that time she went swimming with sharks and picked a fight with a shark. Or when she was at Jitters for their slam poetry open mic night and just grabbed the mic and read a poem she'd scribbled on a napkin five minutes before. See, Frost was always honest. And the truth is... I thought that if I saw my sister laying here... That I would have to say goodbye. But then... A friend of mine reminded me that... that's not true. That she lives on in all of us, not just in me. In her selflessness, her unique way of seeing the world, and her deep love for her family and friends. So if we keep those parts of her alive in us, then she's not really gone, and I can't think of a better way to honor her memory. I'll keep you alive, Frost. I promise."
Caitlin's eulogy[src]

"Funeral for a Friend" is the fourteenth episode of the eighth season of The Flash, and the one-hundred-sixty-fifth episode overall. It aired on May 11, 2022.



This episode opens on a close up shot of each member on team Flash. Each of them look sad as this episode centers on grief. As Barry sat next to a bed in the med bay, there was a short flashback of Caitlin trying to save Frost. Suddenly, the S.T.A.R. Labs alarm went off and shook Barry out of the revery.



Guest starring[]






  • The episode title is a reference to the Elton John song "Funeral for a Friend".
  • Originally, showrunner Eric Wallace was supposed to direct this episode, but ended up directing the next episode, "Into the Still Force", instead.[1]
  • While not officially part of the "Death Revisited" graphic novel, Eric Wallace considers this episode to be a conclusion to that storyline.[2]
  • Among the items on Frost's bucket list was a white water rafting trip. Barry had mentioned doing this with Frost in "Success Is Assured".
  • This episode is similar to the Superman & Lois Season 2 episode "Bizarros in a Bizarro World", with both episodes having segments focusing on one or several characters.
  • Allegra mockingly calls Chester "condiment king" during an argument - there actually is a very obscure Batman villain named Condiment King, who first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode "Make 'em Laugh".
  • Blockbuster first appeared in Detective Comics #345, as an enemy of Batman. His enhanced strength and endurance are organic in the comics, as opposed to the suit used in this episode.


  • Despite being labeled as a meta in the synopsis, Mark Desmond isn't a meta-human but given augmented strength through an exo-suit.
  • When Caitlin starts gathering Frost's possessions, one shot clearly uses a body double, possibly due to Danielle Panabaker's pregnancy.
