Synopsis for "Hell to Pay, Part Two: Heart and Souls"
Flash travelled to Hell to confront Neron regarding the soulless Rogues which are currently running wild in Keystone City. Flash wants Neron to return their souls to their bodies, but of course Neron will only do that if he receives something from the Flash in return. And as Flash spots Major Disaster together with Neron he understands that Neron set up everything just get the Flash into that bargaining position. To emphasize his position, Neron presents to Flash the severely crippled body of Jay Garrick. Wally is still not willing to make a bargain with Neron, therefore he and Jay are sent back to Earth.
Meanwhile, the JLA has arrived in Keystone City and immediately goes to work against the Rogues. Flash brings Jay to a hospital before getting together with Linda Park and Pied Piper. He tells them about Neron wanting his soul which, of course, freaks Linda out. Flash runs off to help his JLA teammates while Linda sneaks away to take the magic candle which works as an entrance to Hell.
Flash joins the fight against the soulless Rogues whose Avatars are so powerful that even the JLA is not able to contain them. After trying for a while Flash comes to the conclusion that there is no other way to save Keystone City than to sell his soul to Neron. And thus, Flash takes the candle and travels to Hell again. But Neron does not want Flash's soul - he wants his heart i.e. his love for Linda Park. Wally is shocked, but sees no alternatives and agrees. As soon as he gets back to Keystone City he meets Linda and breaks up with her. Before leaving he asks her to give back the Flash ring, but Linda does not have it anymore. Wally has no clue that Linda went to Neron and made a deal with the devil as well. Actually, she surrendered her love (in form of the ring) so that Neron would not ask for Wally's soul. Obviously, Neron played them both perfectly and now wants to use their "love" to conquer heaven...
