A copy-cat-killer who goes by the name The Trickster starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry and Joe meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse, who has been imprisoned for twenty years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry Allen prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris asks Eddie to investigate a missing person, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells came up with the name for S.T.A.R. Labs.

About halfway through the episode, Dr. Harrison Wells is involved in a car wreck causing the car to be upside down. You can clearly see the car's drivetrain and exhaust intact. Towards the end of the episode they show the car again but without the drivetrain or exhaust, and the bottom of the car is different. It appears that they are using a completely different make and model car. See more
