Synopsis

Superman and Wonder Woman realise that Walter West is in the wrong reality and his prolonged presence here is causing the barriers between timelines to bend and break. To prevent their universe from crashing into others, they insist that Walter leave this world. Walter reluctantly agrees upon seeing the damage he’s causing, and he takes Angela Margolin to Rome to spend his last few hours with her.

Meanwhile, Wally West and Linda Park decide to pick up where they left off by finally getting married in an impromptu ceremony. With the help of all the other speedsters, they manage to organise the caterers, the location (Linda’s grandmother’s farm in Iowa) and the guests (using the JLA and Titans as both guests and guards).

As Wally marries Linda, Walter tearfully bids farewell to Angela, worried that they won’t remember each other once he leaves this reality. When Walter leaves that world, he ends up in a world where superheroes exist only in comic books. He picks up the most recent issue of The Flash, which shows that Angela does still remember him.
