QUOTE: "I bet there's a ton of honeys out there just itching to be Flash's girl!" —Wally West

SUMMARY: At a Long Island hospital, Jerry McGee continues to recover from the drug-induced, high-speed rampage that nearly killed him, his wife, and the Flash. In a nearby ward, Wally West's wounds from a recent attack are healing at an accelerated rate despite the fact that he remains without his powers. Speed scientists Dr. Orloff and Dr. Bortz are on hand to assist both men as is Tina McGee, who is beginning to realize that her love for her husband hasn't faded and that her relationship with Wally must be brought to an end. The Flash is still reeling from his break-up and a surprise eviction notice when Sergei, a desperate and crazed speedster who was once a member of Russia's dangerous Blue Trinity, unexpectedly attacks the hospital.
