After several of these acts of uncontrolled vandalism, Flash is arrested and placed in jail.
The Pied Piper is behind Flash's predicament. He has used sonic vibrations to cause Flash to lose control. Once Flash is in jail, he recruits a gang to rob the city while his music lures everyone into the streets. When the crooks try to double-cross the Piper, he breaks Flash out of jail to stop them. Once Flash learns that the Piper is behind his situation, he is able to outrun the sound waves generated by the villain's flute. Flash then apprehends the Pied Piper and is pardoned by the mayor for the earlier damage he caused.

Tommy suspects that a lab experiment is responsible for his condition. He takes Kid Flash to his father's lab where they discover a robbery in progress. Kid Flash stops the crooks and realizes that his own speed has caused Tommy's condition. Kid Flash then uses his vibrations to cure Tommy.
