QUOTE: "So there I was, just sitting, sort of alone. Chunk had Connie. Tina had Jerry. Mom had... well... Ernesto. I'm going to have to get used to that. Dad had... you get the idea. Seems like everybody has somebody. Except me, of course." —Wally West

SUMMARY:  The Flash's mother is getting married. Mary West is ready to spend her life with Ernesto Varni, the Italian secret agent she has accompanied on so many adventures. On the day of their wedding, Wally is stunned to see some of the guests in attendance. The eclectic group includes various friends, costumed heroes, supervillains in disguise, and, shockingly, Wally's presumed-dead father! When the minister finds himself hopelessly stranded in traffic, it's up to the fastest man alive to deliver him to the ceremony on time. Inspired by the mood of the moment, Mason Trollbridge surprises girlfriend Leonora MacDonald by proposing just moments before Mary and Ernesto exchange their vows. It's spontaneously decided that the wedding should become a double-wedding! Afterwards, at a reception with romance in the air, a lonely Wally West can't help but reflect that everyone in attendance has someone to be with. These downbeat thoughts are interrupted when the lovely Linda Park unexpectedly takes a seat by his side.
