    "Fastest Man Alive"[1] is the second episode of the first season of The Flash, and the second episode overall. It aired on October 14, 2014.

    I'm dealing with a lot right now.
    Look, I know you are. Believe me, I'm dealing with it, too. I've always had a very simple set of beliefs. Gravity makes things fall. Water makes things wet. And up until a few weeks ago, I believed the fastest man could run a mile in four minutes. Not four seconds.

    Synopsis[edit source]

    Barry escorts Iris to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg. When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man's life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells, Caitlin and Cisco scramble to find out what's wrong with Barry, Joe comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn't six gunmen but a meta-human named Danton Black, who can make multiple copies of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the "red streak".

    • The Hex's Gun Shop is a reference to Jonah Hex, who later became a recurring character on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
    • In the opening scene of the episode, Barry mentioned he runs 352 miles per hour.
