Story continued from the previous issue


Zoom and Reverse Flash are forcing Wally to watch the moment when Zoom made Linda Park miscarry, but Barry Allen, also time-travelling, has appeared on the scene to help, and the speedsters' presence changes events somewhat. When Flash arrives safely back in the present, the Rogues disappear into various reflections, spirited away by Mirror Master, while Piper alerts Flash that Linda has been rushed to hospital. At first, all looks bleak, and it seems that she has died, but miraculously, things change, and within moments, she is giving birth to twins, a healthy boy and girl. Jay Garrick describes this strange phenomenon as 'spontaneous conception through time travel', with events in the past having an unexpected repercussion months later. As Wally and Linda enjoy being parents against the odds, the Rogues lay the Top and Captain Boomerang to rest at Avernus before going off to join the 'Society' of villains.
