While investigating a crime scene similar to his mother's murder, Barry experiences cryptic visions of other speedsters. Barry believes the Speed Force is trying to warn him of something. Shortly after, the time-lost original Wally West appears to Barry, who does not remember him at first, but suddenly his memories return and he pulls Wally back into the timeline. After warning Barry about a mysterious force manipulating the timeline, Wally leaves to join the Titans, while Barry heads to Gotham City to compare notes with Batman regarding the force behind the altered timeline.
