Synopsis for "Like Wildfire"
Flash is too late to save Central City's Flash Museum from burning to the ground. On site he meets Detective Angela Margolin. She found a fragment still emitting a faint blue glow which might be the only clue regarding a suspect.
Wally visits Jay Garrick to warn him about a potential threat for all Flashes. Jay keeps his cool, but immediately after Wally left he is attacked by someone who wants to steal his speed powers.
At home, Wally finally realizes who must be responsible for the museum fire. A long time ago, both Barry Allen and Wally (as Kid Flash) fought a man who called himself Cobalt Blue. They defeated him and Cobalt Blue disappeared. Wally thinks that Cobalt Blue wants to desecrate the memory of Barry Allen and visits places which were important in Barry's life. At the police department he finds Cobalt Blue, but their fight is short and the villain flees.
Next, Wally stops by the grave of Barry Allen. He is sure Cobalt Blue will turn up there and he is right. Flash has to prevent Cobalt Blue from touching him. While running really fast, for a split second a girl wearing a Kid Flash costume appears besides Wally and calls him "dad" - only to disappear again. But that distraction is enough for Cobalt Blue to catch the Flash off guard. As Wally lies on the ground helplessly, Cobalt Blue takes off his mask. He calls himself Malcolm Thawne and he looks exactly like Barry Allen...
