QUOTE: "The Thinker and the Rogues caused a lot of heartache and damage. I need to check in on everyone, make sure they're okay—and I can't wait to spread the good word." —Wally West

SUMMARY: Overjoyed by the news that he'll soon be a father, Wally West dedicates a day to catching up with all of his closest friends and family. The fastest man alive travels the country to visit with Goldface, Jesse Quick, the Garricks, Impulse, Cyborg, Morillo, Chyre, and Iris West. His final duty of this joyous day is to deliver redemption to his best friend. During the recent conflict in the twin cities it was revealed that the Mirror Master was responsible for killing Osgood and Rachel Rathaway. He then framed their son for the heinous crime, hypnotizing Hartley Rathaway into believing he was the true killer. When Hunter Zolomon and the Flash visit Iron Heights Penitentiary to retrieve the innocent but understandably confused Hartley, however, they discover that he has gone missing. The Pied Piper has escaped from his cell to seek help from one of his former cohorts—James Jesse, the man once known as the Trickster.
