Mark Mardon, brother of Clyde Mardon, kills the city's coroner with one goal in mind: to get the name of Joe West, the man who killed his brother. Receiving word and breaking his impromptu double-date with Linda, Iris and Eddie (where Iris and Barry's close behavior equally disturbs their dates), Barry freakishly sees himself running beside him en route to the crime scene at superspeed. Joe, knowing the impossibility of protection against meta-humans, works the case but is captured and used to lure Iris to the beach. Meanwhile, as Police Captain Singh winds up hospitalize in trying to protect Joe, Cisco pays dearly for pursuing his suspicions against Harrison. Back at the beach, Iris finally learns the identity of The Flash as Barry tries to thwart Mark's tsunami, hurtling toward the city, and winds up meeting himself en route to the coroner's office instead.
Did You Know?
Cisco remarks he has been waiting since week #1 to use the name Weather Wizard, an obvious reference to the first episode of the series in which Clyde Mardon has weather controlling abilities, and his brother Mark (the original Weather Wizard) is presumed dead. See more
At the end, Joe struggles to talk when Weather Wizard tapes his mouth. Joe, however, could at any time simply have removed this tape with his free hand that he used to hold the binoculars. See more
Hey, Joe. I can call you Joe, can't I? Figured we don't got to be too formal, seeing as you put two bullets into my brother's chest.
Your brother killed my partner and a whole lot of innocent people, and threatened to kill even more.
Yeah, Clyde was no saint, but he was family. If you can't protect your family, the least you can do is avenge 'em.
