QUOTE: "Mirror images. Flip flop. In that place, Mirror Master embraced the nirvana he aspired to — and was driven nuts by it. You were equally tempted by your brush with the speed-force — and turned away from it." —Linda Park

SUMMARY: The Flash finds himself floating in a dimension filled with mirrors, each one linked to a reflective surface in the outside world. The Mirror Master's behind it all, using this secret realm as a means of tracking his friends and enemies in the real world. When McCulloch pours his heart out to Wally, relating a sob story regarding the death of the woman he loved, the two find a means of connecting and the Flash foolishly offers to help the Mirror Master put an end to his pain. The Mirror Master's intentions are less than honorable, however, and his hardly-dead former love finds her deepest fears realized when the two are reunited.
