This revelation sets the stage for an intense and action-packed episode.

Previously on “A New World,” Eddie was overtaken by the blue crystal’s power and found himself face to face with Godspeed, Zoom, Savitar, and Reverse-Flash. As “Part 4” begins, the four malevolent speedsters gather at the Negative Speed Force version of the West residence. As Eddie made his entrance, Eobard wasted no time in hurling insults his way, mocking him for being the least intelligent member of their family lineage.

Run!” And Barry rushed, bringing the battle to an esplanade in front of STAR Labs.
