Synopsis for "The One-Minute War, Part Two: A Ten-Second Week"

At the West house; Wally, Linda and Irey regain consciousness and find that everyone else, including Jai, appears to be frozen in time. They quickly realise that in fact they are moving at maximum speed and cannot slow down. The rest of the neighbourhood had been destroyed by the blastwave when the Fraction landed, but fortunately they and their friends were saved by Jai pulling a tree in front of the house as a shield just before it hit.

At the crash site, Kid Flash and Impulse investigate the ship. The two argue and Bart attempts to phase through the wall of the ship but finds that he can't. Hatches open in the ship and tanks emerge, but Jay Garrick arrives and pulls them into cover before they are spotted. Meanwhile Wally ventures into the city and finds Barry cradling Iris' dead body. Barry is stricken with grief but Wally tells him that he needs his help and Barry puts his feelings aside for the moment. They are attacked by a flyer and split up, with the tank following Wally. Wally destroys the tank by throwing a length of rebar at it.

Jay, Bart and Wallace are cornered by a Fraction tank and squad of soldiers but Jesse Quick saves them. She tells them that she recognises the ship as the "spire" which she and Max saw on a parallel world while searching the Multiverse for Barry during the Dark Crisis, and tells them that the invaders are the Fraction. Elsewhere, Max Mercury also sees the spire from a distance and realises what is happening, and heads into the city to rendezvous with the others. The Flash family, including Barry carrying Linda's body, all reunite at the West house.

Meanwhile at the Fraction's ship, their survey reveals an abundance of resources and an abnormally high number of Metahumans on Earth, as well as at least five Speed Force conduits within the immediate vicinity. Excited at the prospect of such a rich haul, the Fraction admiral orders them to send "the Hunter" to capture them. Odium, one of his lieutenants, reluctantly releases Miss Murder, a creature from a "dark world".
