- "I know you're here, Harrison Wells, and you did not come alone. You can try to hide... But I'm the fastest man alive. I will scour this city until I hunt you down. And when I do, all of you will feel my wrath."
- —Zoom's message to Harrison Wells
On Earth-2, the team races to find Zoom's lair and asks for help from the most unexpected source. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Caitlin rushes to perfect Velocity 9 so that Jay can stop the Geomancer.
Zoom realizes that Dr. Wells has returned to Earth Two and issues a demand to the citizens of Central City to turn him in. Zoom attacks S.T.A.R. Labs looking for Wells and Cisco, but they manage to escape with the Earth Two Barry. Wells, Cisco, and Barry update Iris on what happened with the Earth One Barry, so they all set out to find Killer Frost in the hope that she will lead them to Zoom. After a fight, Killer Frost agrees to take the team to Zoom. The team arrives to rescue Barry and Jesse, but Zoom shows up, too. The team is able to escape while Killer Frost keeps Zoom frozen and unable to move, but a third unidentified prisoner is left behind. On Earth One, Caitlin creates "Velocity 9," a compound to temporarily give Jay his speed so that he can stop a new meta-human named Geomancer. After, Caitlin discovers that, when Jay uses Velocity 9, the serum starts to cure his illness. Jay, Caitlin, and Joe stabilize the breach and allow Barry, Cisco, Wells, and Jesse to return, but Zoom kills Jay and pulls him back through the closing breach to Earth Two.
