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.

This blog post contains possible spoilers for episode 110 "Revenge Of The rogues: of THE FLASH. If you have not seen this episode yet and do not want to read or view any materials about it, please do not continue.
Back in mid-October I found the set for the People's Choice Awards winner for Best New Drama "The Flash" shooting some scenes in downtown Vancouver.
It is rare that I get to a set for the show & find no Grant Gustin at it, but this time that was the case. But I was ok with that, as the alternative this night was 2 guest stars of note for episode 110, Revenge Of The Rogues.
On set were former Prison Break stars Wentworth Miller & Dominic Purcell dressed as their Rogues alter-egos Leonard " Captain Cold " Snart & Mark " Heatwave " Rory.
The scene seemed to have the specialty gun toting nemeses of The Flash shooting their Cold & Heat guns at something or someone that seemingly moved very quick.
The Flash is up for several 2014 Best Of TV Awards. You can vote on the awards HERE. The awards will be running throughout the 1st 3 weeks of January.
The episode with this dynamic duo together airs January 20, 2015 when The Flash returns from its Hiatus on The CW in The U.S. & CTV in Canada.
The Flash shoots scene for episode 104 "Going Rogue" with Jesse L. Martin and his stunt double - plus quick appearance from Wentworth Miller
My 1st real opportunity to shoot any scenes of The CW new super hero program The Flash, since the pilot episode came in early August when I caught up to their set up in East Vancouver.
On set when I first got there was the stunt team preparing to do a scene where a Police car would drive up the street backwards, spin around and almost hit a stunt man who was portraying Jesse L. Martin for the scene.
First thing I noticed about this Police Car was... a LOT of 52's on it. On the roof, the back hood, on the bumper... and even in the license plate number. Clearly the writers ae trying to slide in a few trillion references to The New 52, which is the DC Comics revamped line of their products that started in 2011. They have done it in Arrow as well (at least once that I noticed... probably others) and I have caught The Flash do it at least twice now (this being the 1st... another in a later shoot that will get posted soon with a fire truck) already.
Later on Jesse L. Martin came to set and shot the scenes where his character Detective Joe West is on the ground.
After that shoot, they wrapped the outside shoots and moved indoors. I saw a transport truck arrive out of the corner of my eye and hastily snapped off a few pics of who arrived....unfortunately, I didn't have time to zoom in on the area and wasn't aware who I shot till I saw other peoples pics from earlier in the day, later on. It was Wentworth Miller showing up to shoot scenes as Leoard Snart aka - Captain Cold.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. & on CTV in Canada.
