Why is the whole Flash team dismissing Cisco Ramon??
Okay, so…. that one scene in 3x13 got me thinking: why is everyone so indifferent to Cisco’s life all of a sudden? I’m hoping it’s all of sudden because this has never really come up before but I’m fairly certain that Barry, Caitlin, and Wells at least have always cared about Cisco… until this episode?
Like the conversation they had was so dismissive of the fact that Cisco’s plan was for them to kill him (like he’d die and he himself was suggesting it??) and they were so much more focused on the fact that Caitlin killing him would make her Killer Frost.
Like, that’s something they could worry about too but how about how Cisco is willing to die for this?? Is that not concerning to anyone?
I mean just the conversation about it they had
Barry: Where there’s life, there’s hope.
Cisco: And if there isn’t life?
Barry: What is that supposed to mean?
Cisco: Grodd needs me to open up the breach so he can attack Earth-1, what if I wasn’t alive to do that?
Caitlin: You planning on dying?
Cisco: Only if you kill me.
Cisco: Look, this is something we have to consider. Right now, I can’t think of any other way to stop them, they’d have no other way of getting to Central City.
Julian: He’s right. Cisco’s death would change the newspaper headline in the future.
Caitlin: It’s a long story.
Julian: But it would also make another one come true. They one about Killer Frost.
Caitlin: You want me to kill you?
Cisco: Think about it, Grodd doesn’t no you have cold powers, you might be able to use them.
Wells: Cold powers? She- You have cold powers? I knew it. I knew you and I did not get Barry out of that mirror.
Julian: Caitlin! If you kill someone, there’s not going back. You’ll be Killer Frost for the rest of your life. Now, I did not come all this way to see that happen!
Caitlin: Did you come here because you ‘live for danger’ or to protect me?
Julian: I just don’t wanna see you become something you’re not.
Caitlin: Okay, Cisco, I’m not gonna kill you. And neither is anyone else, okay? So, let’s come up with the next best plan that doesn’t involve killing one of our friends.
Like, Cisco suggested it and Julian immediately is like ‘that would totally work! But it would also make Caitlin into Killer Frost :(’ and Wells is just like ‘COLD POWERS?!’ and Caitlin’s like ‘omg Julian do you like me or something?’ and NONE OF THEM SAY ANYTHING LIKE, ‘Cisco woooaaahh, no are you okay? We’re not gonna kill you jfc’
Like Caitlin finally says “I’m not gonna kill you and neither is anyone else” but that was only after a lengthy ass conversation where everyone was more worried about the fact that Caitlin would turn into Killer Frost than the fact that CISCO WAS WILLING TO DIE.
Like I’m worried for Caitlin too but ???? if one of your squad is just like ‘hey kill me!!!’ you don’t just go like ‘woooahh but that would negatively affect us if we had to kill somebody’ not even like they didn’t want him to die because it would upset them but because it would make Caitlin a murderer like ?????
I love Caitlin but I’m just like why did everyone just ignore Cisco proposing he die?
