Synopsis for "The Mirror-Master's Magic Bullet!"
When Barry learns of the Mirror Master's latest escape from prison, he deduces that the he will likely strike at the auction of the Duke of Ferrand's priceless antique mirrors. Barry arranges his police assignment to guard the Museum of Antique Arts. Upon his arrival, he is shown around by the Duke's daughter, Bettina. When Iris arrives, she believes that Barry is making time with another woman and storms out.
When Mirror Master arrives to steal the mirrors, the Flash gives chase. Mirror Master escapes by throwing priceless mirrors out the window distracting the Flash to run down and catch them. When he returns, the Mirror Master is gone and a key remains on the ground. The Flash deduces the key must have been left by Mirror Master and he will try all the doors in Central City until a match is found.
Meanwhile, the Mirror Master has set up an apartment with rigged mirrors next door to the museum and sets a trap for the Flash, using a special mirror that when shot, knocks an opponent unconscious. Flash enters the room and is paralyzed by his trick.
With the Flash as his prisoner, the Mirror Master uses a special gas to put Flash under his control. Gloating over his victory, he has the Flash perform a number of super feats for him before he finally sends the Flash down to steal the mirrors for him.
Since hypnotized people have issues with being ordered to do things they don't normally perform, Flash awakens from his trance as he would not normally steal the mirrors. The Flash returns to the apartment and easily defeats his opponent.
Barry meets Iris at Picture News and tells her he disappeared to give chase to Mirror Master but he was too slow and the Flash beat him to it.
