THIS BLOG POST contains possible spoilers for The Flash episode 122 "Rogue Time". If you have not seen this episode yet, and want to avoid any possible spoilers for it, do not continue reading or viewing any of the photos.
As some of you who follow me on twitter recall, I caught The Flash shooting their penultimate episode "Rogue Air", directed by Douglas Aarniokoski, of their inagural season down at BC Place in late March a couple times.
The first shoot was a stunt scene filmed at the side of B.C. Place in the early evening. It had the Reverse Flash falling from high up. The scene probably will make more sense on TV, but my guess is he falls from the top of S.T.A.R. labs, which BC Place often stands in for on exterior shoots. I also saw the stunt man for The Flash, Cody Laudan there, but did not see him partake in a stunt during my limited time there. Another man went up as well, dressed in just some stunt gear rigging.
The first shoot that I saw with actors included of course the now well known, thanks to their promo pics, stand off with Arrow star Stephen Amell guest starring along side, Grant Gustin & Robbie Amell facing off against Tom Cavanagh at Terry Fox Plaza. The crew did a great job of using the statues that get larger in size of the Canadian Cancer awareness icon Terry Fox as placing spots to put a "STAR Labs" sign.
While they did spend much of a night there filming this scene, not a lot seemed to be apparent from it to the rare few onlookers that stayed around till well after midnight to see the scenes shot. Besides the fact that Arrow in his Warith al Ghul outfit, The Flash & Ronnie Raymond in his Firestorm outfit were facing off against Eobard Thawne in his Reverse Flash outfit, there seemed to be very little in the way of action at this point, and any dialogue that took place happened when we were too far back to really hear it. In any case, with the earlier stunt I saw performed, and these 4 on the concourse, I am sure all hell is about to break loose in Central City.
PS - Yes, I am aware many of these shots were used in a previous blog post about this episode. Just re-posting them in here for new viewers, and a couple newer ones were added.
A couple days later they were back at B.C. Place shooting more exterior scenes. They started with a daytime scene that had Rick Cosnett and Candice Patton walking along at what seemed like a Central City Police Station set up. The topic of their conversation was not apparent to me at the time of the filming...but knowing what I know after the fact. It clearly revolves around Eddie Thawne's proposal to Iris west, as Iris is holding the green ring box Eddie had. From the body language of the scene, I am guessing Iris did not react with the overwhelming excitement she might have before Eddie was grabbed by Eobard. After they were done shooting, I told my friend to wait where we were, as the rest of the fans moved on to Terry Fox Plaza to see the crew set up the next scene. Eventually Rick & Candice came out where they were filming tog et into their shuttle vans, and signed for the 4 or 5 of us that were smart enough to realize what was happening.
After that scene, there was prep work being done for a stunt scene that was going to happen later with Simon Burnett, the stunt man for Stephen Amell's Arrow character. The weather was at best, unpleasant that evening, and after a quick dinner at Boston Pizza, my friend & I decided to opt out of waiting around for the scene that had MANY more onlookers around for it than there was at the shoot a couple days prior. We saw Tom Cavanagh leave after rehearsals, and tried tog et him but he said he would get us when he returned.... so we waited a bit longer for him to come back. When he did, my friend & I got a couple autographs from Tom Cavanagh as he arrived to film, after the security team tried to sneak him in by driving him 50 ft up from where the crowd had huddled under the awning of the Boston Pizza. We opted to risk the wind & rain to get tom & he rewarded us for our effort. Asd we were leaving, I noticed him stop to shake hands with someone, it was Stephen Amell. We packed up our things and took off from the wind & rain that was beating down on the set by that point.

The Flash shoots a scene for tonights episode 121 Grodd Lives with Grant Gustin and Jesse L. Martin. Bonus pics of Rick Cosnett from ep 119
A couple months ago I caught the cast & crew of The Flash shooting a couple scenes in the Chinatown area of Vancouver. One of the scenes was a short shoot with Grant Gustin and Rick Cosnett for an episode that already aired. The other, was for a scene that I believe will be in tonights episode (based on the shooting schedule I feel it was for tonights ep.... could be next weeks) with Grant and Jesse L. Martin and an actor I didn't get the name of.
In this scene, we see The Flash and Det. Joe West dressed in combat gear out on a street with a armoured truck stopped. There is a scene where The Flash speeds into the scene & body checks one of the bad guys into the side of the truck (thats gotta hurt).
Earlier in the day they shot a scene around the corner with a woman (Jane Hancock) walking some kids to an ice cream truck. Not sure what the scene was setting up, but I have to assume 1 of the people in the scene was relevant to the episode. I took some pics of the scene at the time, but wasnt happy enough with them. So I didnt add any to this post.

The Flash shoots a scene for last weeks episode with Grant Gustin also spotted Tom Cavanagh and Patrick Sabongui
The Flash shot a scene late March 5th/early March 6th for the episode 120 that recently aired.
An earlier scene was shot inside upstairs with Tom Cavanagh. Then as he left, those needed for the exterior scene arrived. Grant Gustin was in his Flash attire, and I I saw Patrick Sabongui on set as Captain Singh, but it was dark & he was far away, so I never got any good shots of him.
The scene is pretty cut & dry. People in an apartment/business tower evacuate as fire & police show up. Then, lastly, The Flash comes to the door & speeds away.
