QUOTE: "For God's sake—Stop letting Wally's choices define who you are! I don't care how screwy any relationship is... You're nuts to give anyone else that power! You don't dare define yourself—and how you fit into the grand scheme of the cosmos—based on what you think Wally is about! You choose your life! You know that! Because ultimately, who we are—what we are—is no one's decision but ours!" —Linda Park

SUMMARY: When Frances Kane—Wally's ex-girlfriend turned powerful psychotic—returns to Keystone in order to take her revenge on him for ruining her life, the people and property of the city find themselves in some true danger. Frankie's commandeered a forty-ton rig transporting cars with her magnetic powers, and she doesn't give a damn about the Flash or the city he protects. Linda Park is also having some trouble adjusting to her relationship with Wally, and her attempts to cover the developing chaos for the evening news soon lead to her abduction as a hostage. It will take some girl-to-girl talking to get Frances to stop her magnetic rampage and to work out her problems on her own, a process which brings Linda to some important realizations concerning her own life and love.
