QUOTE: "Linda... You're my beacon. No matter where I go, no matter what I do... I can always find my way back home because you're there. That's my vow to you, Linda. My home, my life, all my love... It will always rest with only you." —Wally West

SUMMARY:  After foiling a revenge plot hatched by Kobra to destroy the Keystone City Hall both Wally and Linda are relieved to know that their marriage license has survived a contained explosion. The Flash's wedding is on. Friends and family—an eclectic group that includes John and Lisa Park, Wally's disagreeable parents and their respective dates, Dick Grayson, Impulse, and the Justice League—gather at the Park ancestral home for a low-key ceremony. In the hours leading up to the wedding Linda seems worried, though Wally's openness about his life quickly puts her mind at ease. Wally knows that he's ready to be married to his one true love, and he couldn't be more content. When the appointed time arrives, the happy couple exchange their vows. The instant that Wally slips the wedding ring onto his beloved bride's finger, however, the universe is altered in a flash. Suddenly, Linda Park finds herself held captive by unseen villain. Elsewhere, the Flash is experiencing a disconcerting feeling of forgetfulness. Though he has a woman's name on his mind, he can't remember who she is or why she might be important. On the day of her wedding, Linda Park has been erased from existence!
