QUOTE: "I did miss the twin cities. The twists your day can take in this wonderful place. There's nothing like stirring up trouble around here, is there?" —The Top

SUMMARY: A bevy of the scarlet speedster's foes have escaped from Iron Height Penitentiary. The Top is the first of the Rogues to strike again, assaulting the mayor of Keystone City in an insane attempt to seize power. It seems that Roscoe Dillon has gained a dangerous new power during his incerceration, too. The maddened metahuman menace now possess the ability to distort the perceptions of others, leaving them off-balanced. A dizzied Flash must convince paralyzed police profiler Hunter Zolomon that he still has something to contribute in order to determine the Top's weakness. Meanwhile, at S.T.A.R. Labs, Linda's concerns regarding her pregnancy are put to rest when it's discovered that she's carrying twins!
