Synopsis for "Sow the Wind"

The Flash (Jay Garrick) is summoned to FBI headquarters where Hoover asks him to identify a spy operating in Keystone City, and provides him with a list of suspects, including not only Jay himself but his old college buddy Elliott Shapiro. Flash agrees to help but refuses to use his powers to spy on innocent people, and returns to Keystone City, where he just misses seeing Sam, the janitor, helping Manfred Mota into a gadget-equipped costume which he will use as the Atom-Smasher. Sam is paid with a stack of bills, one of which accidentally falls out of his back pocket. Jay finds it to be radioactive and when he goes to confront Sam he finds the janitor putting lab equipment into a sack. Sam draws a gun but is distracted when Jay drops the bill, and easily taken out. Jay then tracks down Elliott Shapiro, who is aware of his Flash identity, and apologises for having suspected him, even briefly, of being a spy. Shapiro is not surprised to hear this as the FBI have been monitoring him ever since he refused to work on weapons development. When Jay asks him about Manfred Mota, whose name is also on Hoover's list, Shapiro describes him as someone who "loves to blow things up". As if on cue, the Atom-Smasher attempts to rob the bank across the street. Flash goes to deal with him but comes off second best, and regains consciousness in a run-down room that turns out to be Shapiro's apartment--all he can afford on a librarian's salary. A radio newsflash tells of an shootout between police and an armoured bank robber, and Flash heads for the scene. Shapiro, fearing that the speedster is suffering from concussion, follows. As Flash and the Atom-Smasher battle, debris is scattered, with a chunk striking a bystander in a trenchcoat--John Fox, whose automatic recall to the 27th Century is triggered before he can speak to the Flash. But Shapiro is able to sneak up behind the Atom-Smasher and disconnect his power-pack, leaving the Flash with a simple task to knock him out.

Synopsis for "Captives of the Atom Master"

The Flash (Barry Allen) is working on his cosmic treadmill that will enable him to travel through time. However when he checks his watch he finds that it still shows eight o'clock: the treadmill's electromagnetic field has caused it to stop. Which means that as usual he is late for lunch with Iris West. Sure enough he gets a frosty reception as he arrives to find her waiting outside the restaurant. However, as he reaches out to push the door open, it swings towards them instead, hitting Iris in the chest. Inside, as he tries to explain, he finds that the cutlery is being attracted to him as if he was a living magnet. He excuses himself for a moment and heads back to his laboratory where he can remove the effect, but on the way there he sees a giant atom hanging in mid-air. Beside it is a costumed criminal who demands that all of the money in Central City's banks be delivered to him within one hour, or he will set off a neutron bomb contained inside it. The villain is Manfred Mota, now calling himself 'Professor Fallout', released from prison and back to his old ways. Flash confronts him but is rendered unconscious by a blast of positrons and taken away to Fallout's lair. John Fox, arrived from the future to recruit the Flash, watches helplessly as they drive off. Flash awakens to find himself strapped to a giant model atom, with Prof. Fallout mocking him as he leaves to collect the ransom money. Flash manages to free himself by vibrating his body, increasing the magnetic charge still in his body so that the nucleus of the model atom repels him. He rushes back to the location of the bomb, where the Mayor is about to hand over the money, and deactivates the device before capturing Professor Fallout. John Fox tries in vain to reach the Flash but is recalled to his own time before he can do so. And Barry returns to the restaurant to find that Iris has gone. He is disappointed but not surprised--until she reappears, explaining that she had rushed off to cover the story of the neutron bomb. Barry professes ignorance, claiming that he has been in the men's room the whole time.

Synopsis for "Con-Fusion!"

The Flash (Wally West) receives a phone call from a sneakers store, advising him that he owes for forty pairs purchased two years earlier. The matter has been placed in the hands of a collection agency, and at that moment someone pounds on his door, but the caller is not from the agency but a frantic woman babbling that someone is going to kill her--someone radioactive. She identifies herself as Nadine Calhoon, a friend of Manfred Mota's, whom she says now calls himself Fusionn. He is insane over getting revenge against the Flash--all Flashes. Wally realises that Mota will probably strike against Central City, so he and Nadine leave for there. In the hallway they encounter John Fox, whom Wally mistakes for the debt collector, so asks him to leave the bill and he will settle up when he can, leaving Fox mystified. Flash arrives in Central City but is immediately struck by a blast from Fusionn, leaving him wounded. Mota now fires a blast into the ground, showering Flash with debris and knocking him out. Triumphant at finally defeating his enemy, Mota removes the Flash's cowl and asks the crowd if anybody recognises him. He is shocked when people casually identify him as Wally Wast, and point out that his identity has been public knowledge for a couple of years. Fusionn's triumph turns to anger at having defeated 'a nobody'. As he rants, Flash regains consciousness and heads for the nuclear facility where Nadine told him that Mota obtained his equipment. He speaks to Dr. Moreau, who tells him there has been no robbery, But Wally senses she is hiding something and he realises she is afraid to admit it in case the facility is closed down. He persuades her to give him a list of what a hypothetical thief might have taken and she advises him to consult with Dr. Ronald Fisher, a former researcher. Wally tracks him down and is given valuable information to use against Mota. Ultimately Flash, Moreau and Fisher combine to defeat Fusionn, who melts into the Earth's crust. John Fox arrives and again tries to speak to the Flash, but once again is whisked away before he can manage it.

Synopsis for "Generations Finale"

Having failed to contact all three Flashes (Jay Garrick, Barry Allen and Wally West), John Fox returns to the 27th Century but the radiation emitted by Mota interferes with the retrieval attempt, blasting Fox with tachyon radiation. Fox materialises in a scene of devastation, with two of his friends dead, but gets the chance to avenge them when he discovers that the tachyons have imbued him with super-speed. He finds Mota wrecking the Flash museum and by swiftly reweaving some of the costumes on exhibition, creates an outfit for himself and declares himself to be the latest Flash. Mota is now living plutonium and will explode within minutes, destroying the city. Fox tries to take him down but is sent flying across the room. He realises he is almost out of time, then realises he is lying next to the Cosmic Treadmill, which gives him an idea. He lures Mota onto the treadmill belt then begins running at super-speed, shifting them both into the timestream and sending the creature hurtling towards the far future. As he ceases the internal vibrations and returns to his own time, he reflects that though it took seven centuries, the Flashes finally defeated Mota.
