- "To understand what I'm about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good, because all of us, we have forgotten what miracles look like. Maybe because they haven't made much of an appearance lately. Our lives have become ordinary, but there is someone out there who is truly extraordinary. I don't know where you came from. I don't know your name, but I have seen you do the impossible to protect the city I love. So for those of us who believe in you and what you're doing, I just want to say thank you."

Iris decided to research about Clifford DeVoe in order to write several articles to expose his murders and plans to the city. Barry was skeptical at first, but finally decided to support the publishing of the articles. The article was seen by many, who reported sightings of DeVoe to Team Flash. Mayor Van Buren read the articles and allowed Captain Captain Singh to reinstate Barry, who had been incriminated by DeVoe of the latter's murder, as a CSI.
