Synopsis for "Running to the Past"
Once upon a time, a young boy named Barry went to the Science Club after school. On the way back, a local kid named Al Desmond beat him up with his gang and stole his shoes. Barry was saddened, but his mother found him and got him ice cream, so he was happier.
Then his mother faded away before his eyes.
Barry Allen wakes up. Since his resurrection, he has been having bad dreams about his dead mother, and he has been unable to sleep. The clock reads 3:05, and since he cannot sleep, he goes to his old childhood home, long since abandoned. He remembers running to the house, and being held back by the officers. No one could solve the case, so the husband, Barry's father, was convicted of the crime... a crime Barry has since learned was committed by his time-travelling arch-nemesis Professor Zoom.
As he sits in the house, he is greeted by the rest of Central City's speedsters, who were alerted by his use of his powers and brought here, though they don't know why. The Flash accepts that, while he may be used to running alone, he has a family now; a group of people who will support him and help him out...
At 3:07, the Rogues find themselves at the old lab of Sam Scudder, the late Mirror Master. None of them know why they have been drawn here at this specific time, but Captain Cold remembers something Scudder was working on between the Flash's retirement and the original Crisis - a large piece of opaque mirror, with the legend "In case the Flash comes back to life, break glass".
