Synopsis for "Ignition, Part One: Driven"
Officers Morillo and Fred Chyre try to stop a drag race in progress, when the weather suddenly changes to blizzard conditions, causing their police cruiser to crash. A newspaper blows by. One of the headlines reads The Flash ...Still Missing. They find police forensic scientist Adam Perkins, frozen to death.
Elsewhere, Wally West is working as a mechanic in the Keystone City police garage.
After work, Wally goes to a diner for a meal and drops the ketchup bottle, establishing that he has no speed powers -- or at least no memory of them. He meets another diner there, Leo, and they share a table. Leo clutches a strange looking gun but never pull it, when he finds out Wally works with the police department. After he eats, Wally goes home to Linda Park. She talks to him about how she lost her baby twins when she got caught in the crossfire between Flash and a super-villain while pregnant. She is glad the Flash has disappeared. She complains that she never sees Wally because of the late hours of his new job.
Later, during Wally's commute to work, he is in a car accident due to a drag race occurring on the street. His car is struck by lighting and time slows down. Rain is suspended in air and Wally can't believe it. While time is slowed, Wally jumps out of his car and brings everyone involved in the multi-car pileup to safety. Time speeds up again at normal pace and firefighters and paramedics respond. A man walks by and hands something to Wally, saying "It's time to run again." Wally looks down at his hand and sees the object is a ring bearing the Flash emblem.
