In STAR Labs, Harrison Wells verifies that since Ronnie and Stein have isolated, they're done crying the atomic intensity of Firestorm.

Across town, Iris and her colleague talk about STAR Lab's conceivable association with Firestorm and Ronnie Raymond. The kindred journalist imagines that Caitlin find out about the Particle Accelerator, Star Labs, and Ronnie Raymond than she's letting on.
That night, Barry visits Professor Stein to get some information about time travel.

Yet, Barry presumes that since went into the past, and his mom is still dead, it implies that the Flash more likely than not neglected to spare his mom.
Somewhere else Ronnie and Caitlin make up for lost time over pizza. Ronnie needs to leave town, however before the couple can discuss the issue, they're trapped by General Eiling. As the distressing episode unfurls, Professor Stein feels the nervousness that Ronnie is as of now encountering. He advises Barry to go help Ronnie.

Eiling says that the two, when combined into Firestorm, mark the fate of human fighting and weaponry. As Wells leaves, Eiling welcomes him to turn Ronnie and Stein over at whatever point he satisfies.
