Synopsis for "The Black Flash, Part 2"
Wally West discovers Linda Park is still alive and asks her to marry him. She agrees and one month later, they get married. Then Wally realizes he is just hallucinating and Linda really is dead. He attends Linda's funeral and Linda's mother slaps Wally, calling him a murderer.
A month later, Captain Boomerang is engaged in some industrial espionage at WayneTech Enterprises in Keystone City, when Jesse Quick arrives on the scene. He tells her he has strapped Jay Garrick to a stealth boomerang that should leave Earth's atmosphere in one minute. Jesse takes off after Jay. She crushes the boomerang and Jay dives into the city reservoir, disabling a canister of anthrax bacilli that Captain Cold had planned to release into the city's water supply.
After the Rogues have been caught, Jesse walks into Wally's house to find him watching the news. Wally is selling the house and he tells Jesse he is moving to Scotland, where he will teach science at Edinburgh University. She asks him to reconsider. Wally gives Jesse the ring he was planning to give to Linda when he proposed marriage.
At the airport, Wally is getting ready to get on the plane when Bart Allen secures him in chains at super speed to keep him from leaving. Bart removes the chains when Wally asks him to, and they go have some hamburgers. The world then freezes and the Black Flash appears before Wally.
