"Viewers watching the Season 1 finale of "The Flash" got a very quick glimpse at the future Killer Frost, Caitlyn Snow's (Danielle Panabaker) villainous alter ego, but she wasn't the only new meta introduced.
The episode revealed that Cisco (Carlos Valdes) was altered when the particle accelerator exploded, giving him special abilities. That's why he's able to remember a timeline that was erased -- in which Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh) kills him.
"You're able to see through the vibrations of the universe," an astonished Thawne tells Cisco upon realizing his former protege has powers. "A great and honorable destiny awaits you now."
In the "Flash" comics, that destiny leads to him going by the alias of Vibe. Luckily for for Cisco, the name comes with some pretty impressive powers. Not only can Vibe create sonic waves that can do things from shatter steel to disrupt the Speed Force -- which powers The Flash and other speedsters -- he can also detect interdimensional breaches.
That's perhaps the most important power anyone on Team Flash could possess given the events of the Season 1 finale. Since Barry (Grant Gustin) opened up a wormhole that introduced the idea of the multiverse to the show -- as evidenced by Jay Garrick's Flash helmet from Earth-Two appearing in their world -- traveling between dimensions is now a reality on the show.
It's only a matter of time until a villain from another dimension shows up. Cisco may be the first line of defense, should he take on all of Vibe's comic book abilities.
Of course, before all of that happens he's going to have to christen himself with his meta name. That's certainly something to look forward to in Season 2."
