Synopsis
After the murder, the Flash tracks down the killer and recovers the murder weapon. At this point, the writer re-writes his story to bring his ancestors (supposedly all warriors) into the picture, ancestors who have placed a curse on him for becoming a writer. So a seance is held to recall his ancestors...a seance that has a surprising result.
