When Barry Allen returns to Central City and the Central City Police Department, he is introduce to the Crime Lab by Captain Frye, who leaves him in unfriendly waters. The first person Barry recognizes is James Forrest. James throws Barry's trademark bow tie on his desk. After quick and friendly banter, James tells Barry that Patty Spivot has left Central City for a Blue Valley and the only reason James stuck around so long was cause his pension was coming at the end of the year. Then Barry is approached by David Singh who gives him an assignment and sends him on his way.

The next time Barry sees James, James is in the office when Singh approaches Barry about his involvement in the closed case of Jason Hicks. Singh begins to yell at Barry but James calls Singh to his computer. James has found traces of Barry's blood on the murdered body of the Mirror Monarch, Singh then yells at Barry more, believing he contaminated the crime scene.

Then later when Singh discovers the Jason Hick's case file is missing he asks James about it but James acts dumb. Then later when Barry closes the Hicks case and proves a young man innocent, James rethinks his previous position of just working for his pension.
