For the eponymous character, see Frost.
"Here's the deal. Taking away a meta-human's powers isn't the same thing as taking away a gun from a criminal. Erasing our powers is erasing our identity. It's saying, 'Hey, you were made bad, change that.' But shouldn't justice be about changing the way a person acts, not the way they were born? I get it. You fear us because we're different. You'd feel safer if we were the same. But different can't be cured. It's here to stay. We're here to stay."
Frost's statement to the court on meta-humans

Trivia

  • Kramer had her opinion of metas soured when a meta cost her the lives of soldiers by double-crossing them. As a result, she does not believe in Frost's reform into a hero and is scapegoating her out of PTSD paranoia so that all meta criminals will have the powers eliminated by the meta-human cure.
    • This is extreme in the fact actual unreformed meta criminals (like Weather Wizard, Rag Doll. Peekaboo, Rainbow Raider, etc) are either still on the loose or locked up in Iron Heights.
  • A Post-Crisis change appears to be that S.T.A.R. Labs no longer is the sole creator of the meta-human cure; given they would not provide the cure for the CCPD to use (as weaponizing it was the whole argument back in "King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd").
  • Matthew Norvock is in attendance of Frost's trial, showing he is still a loyal friend to her.
  • Cisco and Allegra actually serve as proxies for the audience, voicing anger towards the treatment Frost is receiving despite the fact she is now a hero.
  • It's brought up CC Jitters recognized Frost as a hero, as they named a drink after her.
  • It is mentioned that four years have passed since Frost committed a crime, likely putting the show now in 2021; Frost attacked Tracy Brand near the end of Season 3, which took place in 2017.
  • The reason Caitlin had her mother test the cure on a sample of Frost's DNA is because she feared that it was only Frost's healing powers allowing her to exist as a separate entity; if this was true, giving Frost the cure would effectively be murder (which also would have made Kramer look bad).
  • Frost makes a speech about meta racism to defend keeping her powers, unintentionally echoing the speech Grodd gave Barry back in "Grodd Friended Me". Grodd had stated "You take a gun from a man, he's still a man. You took Grodd's mind, his greatest gift."; Frost likewise defends that her powers are part of who she is and taking them away would be declaring she was only on trial for them and not her choices.
  • If Kramer wasn't pushing to use Frost as an example with the cure, she very likely would have gotten a sentence of either a few years in jail (with the sentence reduced for good behavior) or community service (ironically as Frost has been doing so as a hero).
  • The Strength Force is confirmed to be blue; meaning the Sage Force is red.
  • Fuerza is shown to have not been in control when she killed Abra Kadabra.
  • The Speed Force is the villain of this episode, having been driven to "survive at any costs" mentality after the other Forces tried killing her through their hosts.

Goofs

  • Frost isn't a dark matter-based meta, so the meta-human cure should not work on her; thus Carla Tannhauser was incorrect when she informed Caitlin about the preliminary results of testing it in Frost's DNA.
  • The prosecutor says only Killer Frost could have had motive to destroy the meta cure; it seems she forgot about the hundreds of meta criminals in Central City who probably wouldn't be too keen on the possibility of having their powers taken away.
    • Seems odd there would still be any past the Cicada II attack; S.T.A.R. Labs should have reclaimed any leftover vials.
  • Frost is shown wearing power-dampening cuffs, which shouldn't work on her as they solely affect dark matter; though its within the realm of possibility she only wore the cuffs to make people feel safer.
