THIS POST MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 107 OF "THE FLASH". Please do not continue reading, or viewing photos if you do not want to read or see any details of the episode prior to airing.
Back in mid September I caught The Flash shooting in Burnaby for a scene that will be in episode 107.
The scene was unusually overly blocked with umbrellas and scrims to prevent the public from seeing what was going on.
Even despite their best efforts to block most of this scene from the public seeing it despite shooting it on a public street, some quick glimpses of the scenes being shot gave us all enough to put together that the scene has Grant Gustin as Barry Allen (aka - The Flash) walking along drinking a coffee when he is grabbed & held at gunpoint by a mugger who clearly is not good at picking easy targets. Barry looked cocky in the interaction & proceeded to disrobe the attempted mugger with his super speed.
The Flash is up for several awards in the 2014 Best OF TV Awards opening round of voting that is going on right now HERE.
The Flash airs Tuesday Nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
As you may have seen from my 1st ever Flash blog post with the video, the CW pilot for the comic book hero series "The Flash" filmed a scene where they blow up a couple cars.
They also filmed scenes before the crash stunt of Grant Gustin (Barry Allen aka The Flash ) leaving the scene of a car wreck that was featured on another local TV set blogger YVRshoots set here. In this scene, Grant was clearly out of the car and seemed to sense the impending crash and "zipped" out of harms way before the explosion scene.
Also filming scenes that afternoon was Candice Patton ( Iris West ).
When the filming day was over, Grant came over to the 4 of us waiting to meet him, despite 1 of them angering a few crew throughout the day, Grant still came over & signed.

The Flash will air this fall on The CW starting October 7th.
Last week, 1 of the other local autographers & I had a conversation with Grant Gustin about his upcoming role as Barry Allen aka - The Flash. The topic of promotional images for the show came up, and Grant said he didnt know when there would be some full suit ones. I told him, whenever they do a public shoot with you in the suit, there will be 1 that same day. I don't know if he thought I was serious or not, but I was.
So it comes as no shock to me that coincidentally today there was a promo image of The Flash in the full outfit (a previous one was out of just the mask) which Grant himself tweeted a pic of it with the hashtag #TheFlashIsComing . I say coincidentally, because this just happened to be the 1st day that Grant Gustin was seen in public in The Flash costume. Hmmm.
The scene was simple enough. The Flash runs through a courtyard that has been used by countless productions over the years and jumps off a stair case, lands, then proceeds with his run. But it was the 1st chance the public got to see of the DC Comics legendary character out on location for the Pilot filming.
Grants day at this location started off a bit scary as he cracked his head quite hard on the crane they had the camera mounted on because the crew that were escorting him to his spot didnt warn him. They were so busy trying to keep him covered from the mound of fans & paps across the street waiting to see the scene (WHY who knows...he was gonna be seen for an hour after that in the outfit), they didnt cover off their 1st rule of their job, make sure the star is safe.
Fortunately, after getting looked at by someone, he proceeded with his work day & did the scene without any more issues (at least that I saw). When his day was done, he got out of his costume & was hurried into an awaiting van.
Here are some unofficial behind the scene photos of Grant doing his 1st public scene in the Flash costume.
