Synopsis for "Flashpoint: Chapter Two of Five"

In Europe, the pirate Deathstroke is sailing a boat down the flooded remains of Paris. He along with Sonar, Icicle, and Clayface are searching for any sunken loot to steal until they are attacked by Emperor Aquaman and Ocean Master. Back at Wayne Manor, Thomas Wayne starts beating up Barry Allen, as Barry tries to explain about his secret identity as the Flash and his relation to Bruce Wayne. Barry's memories spontaneously change and he remembers the flooding of Western Europe by Aquaman and the siege on London by the Amazons and renaming it New Themyscira, and Barry learns that the world of Flashpoint is not an alternate dimension, but his own. Barry's ring, which he uses to contain his Flash outfit, falls from his pocket and he decides to use his costume as proof of his secret identity. However, the ring instead ejects the Reverse-Flash's costume and Barry tells Wayne that the Reverse Flash is taunting him with it. Barry explains that both he and the Reverse Flash have the ability to alter time, leading Thomas Wayne to ask him about how Bruce was to have lived in his place and if he can really change the world, Barry saying that he first needs his speed.

In London, Steve Trevor is waiting at a rendezvous point for Lois Lane as he is attacked by Wonder Woman and the Amazons. Wonder Woman catches him by the neck with her Lasso of Truth and begins interrogating him after he is temporarily able to resist the lasso's effects. He explains that he was hired to extract Lois Lane from New Themyscira because she was sent to gather information on the Amazons for Cyborg. Wonder Woman states that their counterspy was telling something similar to Cyborg's amassing of super humans to stop the fighting between her and Aquaman and her subjects ask her what to do with Steve Trevor. At Wayne Manor, Barry created an electric chair-like device to reenact the accident that turned him into the Flash. A bolt of lightning strikes the chair and Barry Allen catches fire. Batman douses the flames and sees an unconscious Barry, his body covered in severe burns.
