QUOTE: "One of the jurors had a pencil that squeaked.  This, of course, Alice could not stand, and she went round the court and got behind him, and very soon found an opportunity of taking it away.  She did it so quickly that the poor little juror could not make out at all what had become of it; so, after hunting all about for it, he was obliged to write with one finger for the rest of the day; and this was of very little use, as it left no mark on the slate."  óLewis Carroll

SUMMARY: The Flash is scheduled to be executed in the extra-dimensional fairytale land of Eastwind, and his magically brainwashed wife will serve as his executioner! Fortunately, Wally West has access to the speed force once again and he's able to escape from the guillotine with his head intact. With the help of his unlikely partners, Mirror Master and Captain Cold, the fastest man alive ensures that Keystone City and its kidnapped people are ready and in position to be transported back to the real world. Then, the Flash travels up a magic beanstalk to a castle in the clouds in order to confront Brother Grimm and set reality right.
