Frost says she doesn't think he is going to get out and neither is she.

Frost begins attacking Caitlyn and realizes that Zoom didn't kill her because they looked just like each other.

Before Frost could kill Caitlyn, he kills Killer Frost. Hunter warns Caitlyn that if she tries this with the other prisoner, he will die as well.

They locate Wells and Cisco reveals that they upgraded the internal lining of the suit. They couldn't get much so they only covered the chest part of the suit and it will also only absorb one punch.

Wells has finished a serum that should cure Grey and asks him to be optimistic.
