I want my glitch animation to play both forward and backwards

Ok guys
I created this stretchy glitch animation
see image below:
https://ibb.co/BzSr3cj

I want to lengthen it and play the second half in reverse. Not so familiar with Ae so what do I do?
Between the first half and second half I want a pause of 2 seconds revealing the logo before stretching backwards again.

A step by step explanation will be greatly appreciated or a brief video clip showing the procedure. The logo is driven by the brightness of the glitchy displace map comp (sorry spelled it wrong in the image)

Here is a saved copy of the project file below for a tryout diagnostic:

Every help will be greatly appreciated thanks

I didn't download your file due to my time constraints, but in general I would put the layers of a finished animation into a precomp so I only have to deal with one layer. Then, Duplicate this layer and right-click on it to bring up the menu. Go to Time> Time-Reverse Layer (command-option-r) and this will play the layer in reverse. Of course, you will have to sync up the starting point. You can duplicate your original layer again and add a freeze frame (Time>Freeze Frame) to keep it still. Make this layer start at the end of your original layer where you want the freeze to occur and trim it at 2 seconds. Then, align your layer that's in reverse to the end of your frozen layer. If you want one layer to take longer to play, you can go to Time>Time Stretch and adjust the duration. Or, make a copy of the original animation and adjust the keyframes as needed and then bring it into this comp and reverse it.
