THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 203 OF THE FLASH. If you have not yet seen this episode and do not want to see or read anything about it prior to seeing it. Do not continue reading or viewing this post.
In early August, I caught The Flash out shooting scenes for their 3rd episode of season 2.
The first night was an odd one for me. It started off quite disappointing, but ended with a cool memory.
Scenes were shot inside with a variety of cast, most importantly for me was Peyton List and Candice Patton. I had several photos I hoped to get them to sign. I even saw Peyton...briefly, unfortunately, not in enough time to react. Sadly, that 1 brief sighting was all we would see of her the rest of the day. While there, we randomly ran into Victor Garber, aka - professor Martin Stein. He wasn't working, he just happened to be walking by that area. My buddy had some Legends O Tomorrow cast promo items he got him to sign, and I had 1 left over photo from Argo to get done.
Later on they started setting up for a scene outside in an alley. It was going to include Grant Gustin and Candice Patton. Eventually Grant arrived and did a rehearsal for the scene. When rehearsals were done, the pair left. In that same time, the crew asked everyone to vacate the area they were standing in and move all the way to the other end of the alley. This was important for 2 reasons.
As we were leaving, I got a call from my friend who had JUST left to catch his last bus telling me the car Grant was in was back up top where we were earlier. The group of 15-20 fans made the long block and a bit trek up a side lane, out onto the street where we had been waiting for hours earlier, down that street, and up the back side of the alley at the opposite end of where we just were. This was funny to me, because an entire group of fans walked down the street, stared RIGHT AT the security guy who was standing beside the vehicle they just saw Grant leave in, right outside a trailer with its lights on inside and thought nothing of it and kept walking. I of course stopped. As did two other autograph hounds. Almost instantly grant came out, saw us, came over, signed for me, signed for 1 of the other two and said he had to get going and left to go back to set.
I wandered around with 1 of the guys for a few minutes as we looked to find a good spot to watch the scene. in the end we ended up joining the 6-8 fans still there at the end of the alley. Eventually the scene they were shooting needed a break to turn all the equipment around so they could shoot from the opposite direction. While that went on, Grant in his new, previously not seen by me white logo Flash suit sprinted down the alley towards us, and quickly rushed by high fiving everyone before looking like he was about to leave again. A couple moments later, he came back to the group. This time he stopped to interact, sign autographs and meet the fans.
A fan had brought something interesting for grant to see. it was apparently 1 of the outfits Brandon Routh wore when he had the role of Superman. Since Grant is a massive Superman fan, he was pretty thrilled to see it. After that interaction I asked Grant if it was ok to get a pic with him in the suit. It was something I had discussed with him going back as far as last season, with the response being "we'll see" both times prior. I said "remember that thing we discussed the other day" he knew what I meant & said yeah, I asked "is now a good time" and he replied "sure" and he took a photo with me while he was in his Flash suit. Of course, everyone else wanted the same and he happily obliged them. That certainly made up for my prior disappointments of missing Peyton and Candice to say the least.
The second day of shooting saw the cast a block away at a business tower. If you are a fan of Arrow, you may recognize it from season 2 as the lobby of Queen Consolidated. Today, it was playing the part of a general business tower in Central City somewhere.
This particular scene had 3 cast members in it. Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Wenworth Miller as Leonard Snart (aka - Captain Cold) and Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart.
The scene seemed to have the Scarlet Speedster and his sometimes nemesis Captain Cold teaming up with Cold's father in some scene that had them dressed as a cleaning crew.
The scene was completely shot inside, so there was not much chance for fans to see what was shot. An earlier scene deeper inside the building away from any street view was also shot with the same cast.
After filming the cast left. Wentworth stopped to take photos with all the fans who patiently waited till about 1 AM for them to wrap.

You can watch season 2 of The Flash on Tuesdays starting October 6, 2015 on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
The Flash filmed some scenes in downtown Vancouver earlier in July for the season 2 premiere.
The first day they shot scenes in a large park in the West End for "Flash Day" in Central City. I missed all the actual filming, but I did get there in time to see Carlos Valdez on lunch and meet Adam Copeland (aka Edge from WWE) who was guest starring in the episode.
A couple days later, I caught up with them shooing in an alley a block from BC Place. There was very little to be seen there due to the way the alley was set up.
Again Adam Copeland was on set, along with Grant Gustin dressed in his standard Flash suit with the red logo still being repped (spoiler alert for those not on the internet in the last 3 weeks and this is the first thing you are seeing... a change is coming to the logo SOON).
The most interesting thing from this shoot wasn't the actors on set. It was a new prop that I'm assuming the CCPD has. As much as I love the Flash, I am a little disappointed to see them so blatantly rip off an idea from another superhero show. The Flash now has his own version of The Bat Signal.
I also added a few pics of the cast of The Flash going to & returning from Comic-Con weekend. Grant, Carlos, Tom Cavanagh, Victor Garber and Candice Patton.
The Flashs season 2 begins October , 2015 on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
