Synopsis for "The Invasion of the Cloud Creatures!"
Doctor Summers tells his audience that he was testing volcanic lava at the only active volcano in the US in Lassen Volcanic National Park when he feels something watching him. He took a picture of a face in the clouds, but the picture did not develop. He hypothesizes he has discovered a species of sentient Cloud Creatures created from the volcanoes, however has no documented proof of his claims. He believes earthquakes and volcanoes are a result of he inner earth having life wanting to hurt surface dwellers. He is ultimately laughed at by the scientific community.
After the lecture, Iris tells Barry she is not impressed. Meanwhile, the Cloud Creatures decide to make a direct attack on the human race, attacking US airforce bases.
Barry leaves Iris with Dr. Wiley to become the Flash and confront the Cloud Creatures. He attempts to spin a tornado at them but they increase their altitude avoiding his attack. The Flash gets the idea to skip cloud to cloud like a rock over water, to attack their center nucleus. When he does, it destroys the Cloud Creatures and they become ordinary rain clouds that drop rain over the area.
Afterwards, Barry calls Iris to set up another date, however Iris declines telling Barry that she has a date with Doctor Summers.

Synopsis for Kid Flash: "The Challenge of the Crimson Crows!"
In Blue Valley, Wally recounts the events that led to him becoming Kid Flash and wonders if it was a dream. Running late for school, he accidentally uses his speed power to make it in on time and thus confirming his new powers. In class, Wally has a hard time trying to keep from using his speed powers, using them slightly to win a basketball game. Several students question his new speed and Wally reminds himself he needs to be more careful about hiding his identity to protect his family and friends.
After school, Wally decides to keep an eye on a local teen gang known as the Crimson Crows. He changes into the Kid Flash and listens in on their meeting. The group decides to rumble with the Golden Eagles, a rival gang. However as the two groups prepare to fight, a lantern in the Golden Eagle's club house knocks over and the place catches fire. Kid Flash then uses his speed power to put the fire out, leaving both gangs to believe a wind had blown out the fire. Later the Crimson Crows reform into an athletics club.
