Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde's death, and sets his sights on Joe, who shot Clyde. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry, Barry is able to super-speed them to safety but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn’t listen and ends up in grave danger. Meanwhile, Cisco looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn't add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells. Barry and Linda Park end up on an awkward double date with Eddie and Iris.[1]


In late 2014, Clyde Mardon shot Fred Chyre while running to catch the getaway plane Mark was piloting. The two celebrated as they flew away, and Mark told Clyde to put on his seatbelt. At that moment, the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded, causing the plane to explode. Because he wasn't buckled in, Clyde fell out of the plane, while Mark went down with it. Neither brother was aware of the other's survival, but both had obtained the power of atmokinesis. Mark's status had been unknown and generally presumed as deceased for over a year.

Present day.

Linda Park and Barry end up going out bowling. They start flirting and kiss, when Iris spots them. They end up joining Iris and Eddie on a double date. Linda and Barry begin flirting again when Iris goes up to Barry and wipes a bit of sauce off his face. Linda is clearly getting agitated.

Meanwhile at the Central City Morgue, Mark Mardon appears. He asks the coroner the name of the cop who shot his brother when the coroner refused to answer, Mark then tortured him with the form of hailing, using his weather powers. By the time the coroner finally caved in and told him Joe West was the one responsible, Mark promptly killed the battered informant then began to hunt out Detective Joe West.


Preparation began December 3 2014, and ran until December 11, 2014. Shooting ran from December 12, 2014 and ran until January 8, 2015.[2]
