Uncovering the secret lab in the Nazi base, they discover the experiment is still an infant. Alan does not want to kill the child and the two friends end up battling each other and the experiment survives.

With Scythe in custody, Jay Garrick has a meeting with Senator Eagin of the United States Senate.
