    Dead Reckoning

    Picture News reporter, Sue Stanton, reports on the death of Professor Zoom, the notorious Reverse Flash. Stanton interviews several guesst of the Allen-Webb wedding party, all witnesses to Professor Zoom's untimely demise. Away from reporters, inside the wedding chapel, the Flash tries to console the former bride-to-be, Fiona Webb. The Flash, as police forensics scientist, Barry Allen, had been forced to leave Webb standing at the altar, while he confronted his nemesis, Professor Zoom. Detective Frank Curtis confiscates the wedding video, as police evidence. The emotional toll of the day bears down heavily upon Webb. The Flash races her to a nearby hospital, where she suffers a complete emotional collapse.

    Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang steal Professor Zoom's body from the police morgue. The Trickster steals Professor Zoom's costume from the police evidence lockup. The Rogues escape police pursuit in a giant flying boomerang. District Attorney, Anton Harvey, reviews the tape of Professor Zoom's death, at the hands of the Flash. To assuage his guilty conscience over being forced to kill Professor Zoom, the Flash steps up his lifesaving efforts in Central City. Kid Flash aids the Flash in stopping an experimental jet from crashing. Kid Flash convinces the Flash to take a respite. The Flash, as Allen, calls the hospital to check on Webb's condition. The Pied Piper, and the Weather Wizard, join the other Rogues in paying their last respects to Professor Zoom.

The Rogues vent their rage on Professor Zoom's corpse, and costume, by unleashing all their myriad weapons upon it, in unison. Harvey decides to bring criminal charges against the Flash. Moving faster than the eye can see, the Flash visits Webb. The Flash, as Allen, assures a revived Webb that his desire to marry Webb is true. Webb falls back asleep.
