Trapped in a nether-dimension, the Flash runs, futilely, searching for an escape, until he collapses in exhaustion. The Super-Gorilla, Grodd, and his mind controlled slave, Angelo Torres, move in for the kill. Grodd toys with the Flash, before the kill. Grodd releases Torres from his mental domination. Torres flees. Torres hates himself for running out on the Flash, considering how much the Flash has done for Torres, and his family.
Just as Grodd is preparing to deliver the death-blow, the Flash suddenly revives. Still holding onto a reserve of super-human speed, the Flash engages Grodd in combat. Grodd fires off a beam of pure mental force. The Flash races so swiftly that, not only does he dodge the beam, but he grabs Grodd and places him in front of it. Grodd, effectively takes himself out. Torres returns to the Flash, with help.
King Solovar, leading a security force from Gorilla City, make their presence known. The Flash is taken back to Gorilla City, where his injuries are healed, and his costume mended. Grodd is placed in a new holding cell. Police Captain, Darryly Frye, papers Central City, with missing person bulletins. They offers a reward for any information regarding the whereabouts of police forensics scientist, Barry Allen.
King Solovar offers the Flash sanctuary in Gorilla City, but the Flash declines, returning to Central City. Attorney Peter Farley worries over the Flash's long absence. En route back to Central City, the Flash rescues an airplane full of passengers, keeping it from sinking into the sea. Farley is targeted for assassination. The Flash calls Farley. In the middle of their conversation, Farley's office explodes. The Flash races back to Central City, in the hopes of saving Farley's life.
