QUOTE: "Stop. Just stop. You don't have to throw everything away again. The uniform. The code name. The legacy. You can't deny yourself your identity, Wally. Either of them. You can't slow down." —Linda Park-West

SUMMARY:  After stumbling onto the secret of the new Mister Element's true identity, the Flash confronts the cop-killing supervillain in an auto wrecking yard, saving Ashley Zolomon and clearing Captain Cold's name in the process. With his super powers now fully rediscovered, however, his battle with the mystery murderer is sadly not the most difficult task on his agenda. At home, Wally at last brings himself to confess his dual identity to Linda, to reveal to her that he and the Flash are one and the same. Linda's stolen memories, like Wally's own, return to her mind and she's left more grief-stricken and conflicted than ever before. Wally West has proudly resumed the mantle and legacy of Keystone City's protector but he has not yet finished living with the tragedy that Zoom visited upon his family.
