The last thing Barry remembered before seeing a white light was chasing the Reverse Flash into a speed force storm, running so fast that his body simply couldn't take the intensity of the speed he was running at, burning up, just like his time remnant did when he was trying to stop Zoom from destroying the multiverse and then when the white light came to end, he found himself in some strange dimension.
"Where the hell am I?" Barry asked.
"Someplace unreachable by any other means Mr. Allen." a familiar voice and Barry turned to see a man that he believed to be Music Meister standing behind him.
"Music Meister, what have you done to me now?" Barry asked.
"I am not Music Meister, though I share a similar origin as him. I am the Beyonder." Beyonder said.
"Why did you bring me here?" Barry asked.
"To give you another chance at life." Beyonder said.
"How?" Barry asked.
"There are more earths in the multiverse than the 53 earths you know of. There are infinite earths and you have a chance to take the place of your counterpart in any of them. You can undo your mistakes and save the lives of those who weren't able to before." Beyonder said.
"Sounds like a no brainer. Any Earth recommendation?" Barry asked.
"Earth 104. The you of that universe is currently in the coma after being struck by lightning. When you arrive, you will not only have access to your speed, but it will be at the same level it was before you died on Earth One." Beyonder said and Barry nodded as he braced himself for what he was sure would be a painful experience and he was not disappointed as the Beyonder tapped him and it felt like Barry was being flung backwards while he was being torn apart and put back together at the same time.
When Barry woke up, he found himself hearing Poker Face.
"I told you it would work." Barry heard Cisco say and he had to remind himself that Cisco didn't know him yet.
"Where am I?" Barry asked as he shot upwards.
"Whoa relax man. You're in Star Labs, my name is Cisco Ramon. You were struck by lightning and we brought you here to treat you." Cisco said as Barry looked down and pretended to be surprised at the changes made to his body.
"Lightning gave me abs?" Barry asked as another familiar face entered the lab.
"I'm Doctor Caitlin Snow and I need you to urinate into this." Caitlin said as she handed Barry a cup.
"Nice to meet you to. But anyways, what's going on?" Barry asked.
"Your muscles should be atrophied, but instead they're in a chronic and unexplained state of cellular regeneration. It's quite remarkable really." Caitlin said.
"How long have I been here?" Barry asked as he heard a familiar sound and he had to resist the urge to glare as Harrison Wells rolled up to them.
"You were in a coma for 9 months." Wells said.
"Dr. Wells, it's an honor to meet you." Barry said.
"Really, well since our little mishap with the particle accelerator, not many people share that opinion Mr. Allen." Wells said.
"We have a lot to discuss." Wells said and Barry nodded as he followed Wells into the cortex.
"It's hard to believe I'm here. I've always wanted to meet you face to face." Barry said to Wells, despite knowing who that man really was.
"Yeah? Well, you certainly went to great length to do it. S.T.A.R. Labs has not been operational since FEMA categorized us as a class 4 hazardous location. many more were injured. Myself amongst them." Wells said.
"Geez. What happened?" Barry asked.
"Nine months ago, the particle accelerator went online, exactly as planned. For forty-five minutes I had achieved my life's dream and then then there was an anomaly. The electron volts became unmeasurable, the ring under us popped, energy from that detonation was thrown into the sky, - and that, in turn seeded a storm-cloud." Wells said.
"That created a lightning bolt that struck me." Barry finished.
"That's right. I was recovering myself, when I heard about you. The hospital was undergoing unexplainable power outages every time you were going into cardiac arrest, which was, actually a misdiagnosis, because you see, you weren't flat-lining, Barry, your heartbeat was moving too fast for the EKG to register it. Now, I'm not the most popular person in town these days but, Detective West and his daughter gave me permission to bring you here, where - we were able to stabilize you." Wells said and Barry immediately reached for his hand instinctively for his wedding ring, only to remember that he and Iris weren't married or even dating in this universe.
"Iris?" Barry asked.
"Iris, yes. She came to see you quite often." Wells said with a smile.
"She talks a lot. Also, she's hot." Cisco said, only to have Barry glare at him, but to his surprise, Caitlin also glared at Cisco.
"I need to go." Barry said.
"No, you can't." Caitlin said.
"Look, I get you still have tests you need to run on me, but I think that my family deserves to know that I'm okay." Barry said and Wells had to give him that.
"You can contact your family and ask them to come here." Wells said and Barry nodded as Cisco handed him back his phone and Barry took a deep breath while he prepared to call Iris and braced himself for the reality that she was dating Eddie right now.
