‘Arrow’ Season 2: First Look at Grant Gustin as The Flash!
Earlier today we learned that ‘Arrow”s impending ‘Flash‘ spinoff would in fact emerge as a separate pilot, rather than feature the character’s super-powered origin later on in the season, but that won’t stop Grant Gustin from popping up as Central City police scientist Barry Allen on December 4! Get a first look at “The Scientist” with the pre-Flash inside!
The first photos of Gustin in character as the scarlet speedster arrives courtesy of The CW, though unsurprisingly, the character looks quite a bit like Grant Gustin wearing regular clothes. The former ‘Glee‘ star will appear in the eighth and ninth episodes of the series, beginning with December 4′s “The Scientist,” though it remains to be seen if the character will still be incorporated into episode 20, outside of his own spinoff pilot.
Says The CW of Barry Allen’s first appearance in “The Scientist”:
A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island.
Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy (Colton Haynes) for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea (Willa Holland) not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured.
