The Flash shot scenes for episode 222 in downtown Vancouver a few weeks ago.
They used a couple of locations on this night, most notable a building on Melville Street that they have used before (as as Arrow and others.). Later they moved out to the VERY open and public shoot on Burrard Street.
The opening scene. The Melville location had a couple of recognizable names on location. Carlos Valdes was there, along with former Arrow star Katie Cassidy who was dressed a bit differently from her Black Canary days, as she was there to portray the role of "Black Siren" the E2 version of Laurel Lance.
The scene was done inside, so we cant tell you what happened... but everyone that was there managed to meet the pair when they wrapped the scene.
After that, the production moved to the alley behind the building with a scene that had two actresses (which i confused for pretty much everyone on the DC roster at 1 point or another while I was staring at them from a block away, thought girl in red might be Katie Cassidy, then Willa Holland, thought the other girl might be candice Patton, then Malese Jow.) that at this time I dont know who/what role they were playing, seem to be getting chased by a cloaked villain at the end of the alley. At this time I cant say much on what the scene entailed as I suspect a lot of VFX was going to be added in later. If anyone has any insight as to who the two actresses are, or the villian, please let me know so I can credit them properly.
While that alley scene was going on, several of us met Grant Gustin as he left his holding area which was right near the first set, to go to the next location.
In the late shoot.. over on Burrard Street saw Katie Cassidy out in full Black Siren garb facing off with Grant Gustin dressed as The Flash, and with a little assistance from Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West. I can confirm that Siren & The Flash had a face to face sizing up, and that from all accounts of the scene I saw their stunt personnel play out, it looks like E2 Laurel was getting the best of Barry, and seemed to use something similar to the Canary cry device Black Canary had on Arrow.
I know a lot of people are wondering if we will see Laurel on The Flash full time now that she is dead on Arrow. My feeling was this was a 1 off telling of E2 Laurel. Maybe I'll be wrong, but currently nothing has suggested other than that yet.
The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada, and this episode will air TOMORROW NIGHT, May 17, 2016.

This post may include minor/major spoilers for episode 14 (and maybe 13) of The Flash. If you do not want to see/read any thing about the episodes prior to them airing, do not continue looking at the photos or reading the article.
Shortly before Vancouver productions went on their Winter breaks, I caught the cast & crew of The Flash filming scenes for episodes 14 & possibly 13.
At the time, the first location I came across didn't make a lot of sense to me as I didn't really have an idea who the character they were filming might be. I asked twitter at the time and got lots of answers, including 1 person who was right... but never said how they knew.
As it turned out the mystery man was Adam Fells aka Geomancer. The actor portraying him is Adam Stafford, which explained some of my confusion when the twitter user told me the correct character. I had said "someone named Adam" which anyone whos spent time on a set knows that's the ACTORS name, not the character, so when the user told me it was Adam Fells/Geomancer, I was hesitant to go with it since I thought they were confusing my comment with the CHARACTER name and not understanding that was the actors name.... turns out it was both.
A week later The Flash was all around the downtown core shooting a bunch of scenes. Lots of recognizable cast were on set during these shoots, but while I did miss scenes of Carlos Valdes & Jesse L Martin on set earlier and Teddy Sears in his Flash outfit, I DID manage to catch what was at the time the largest spoilers of the night.
Scenes were shot after it got dark with 3 cast. Grant Gustin, dressed in a very non-Earth 1 Barry Allen style, almost as if he was a professor instead of the sometimes awkward scientist we see week in & out. He filmed a scene first where we see a stunt double at the other end of the court making motions at him, and he runs over to a statue of Jay Garrick and grabs the helmet off it and directs it at the woman. At the time, not a lot could be put together from that. The coolest part seemed to be the Jay Garrick statue and Grants new attire.
Of course, a bit later the two BIG reveals showed up. Danielle Panabaker arrived on set, not as Earth 1 Caitlin Snow, but Earth 2 version of her known as Killer Frost. This was the first time publicly Danielle had been seen in this outfit, and it wasn't till she was on set shooting that many even were aware as the crew tried quite hard to protect any sight of the public seeing her at first....then once they did, they asked quite often to please not take photos (which some did, and some of course did not). After awhile, the shock of that spoiler had settled in and the crew became less vigilant of trying to prevent people from photographing it.
The last spoiler of the night came when she was joined on set by Robbie Amell dressed as the Earth 2 Ronnie Raymond version Deathstorm. Again, crew tried preventing people from photographing it, and at the end of the night Robbie even asked some of the fans to not tell anyone he was there that it was a big secret.
The scene they shot essentially had Killer Frost & Deathstorm trying to eliminate Barry Allen as he zipped around the courtyard. Deathstorm even tells Killer frost at one point "hes a speedster babe, watch out".
Unfortunately, there was VERY LITTLE chance to get a photo of the villainous duo together. The only shot I did get of them didn't turn out too great as you can see below.

The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada. Tonight (date of this blog post) is episode 13, episode 14 will be a week later.
The Flash filmed scenes for episode 209 with Grant Gustin, Liam McIntyre, and Mark Hamill as Santa Claus....seriously.
A couple months ago, I caught the cast & crew of The Flash shooting right downtown at Robson Square.
By the set decoration it was clear, they were filming a Christmas time themed episode.
No shocker, in Central City even Santa Claus isn't a nice guy. But who is Santa in Central City? Why the Trickster of course. Star Wars icon Mark Hamill was in town to reprise his role, along with Spartacus star Liam McIntyre reprising his role as Weather Wizard.
The pair shot a scene with Grant Gustin as The Flash. In the scene Gustin is hold what looks like an oversized Sonic Screwdriver, which the Weather Wizard coaxes out of the Scarlet Speedster before blasting The Flash to who knows where while The Trickster sits by reveling in the events.
Getting a Mark Hamill guest spot just a week & 1/2 before Star Wars VII The Force Awakens hits theatres cant be a bad feather in the cap of the comic book hero series.
A video of the scene has been added below the photos.
During the shows lunch break that evening, a considerably larger than usual crowd was gathering around the stars trailers. Mostly, in hopes of catching Star Wars icon Mark Hamill.
As Mr. Hamill walked to his trailer, I caught up to him before he got close to the crowd and he happily signed my Star Wars photo, featured here on my new Instagram account.
As he got near the trailers, the crowd noticed & stopped him. Mark stopped, took the time to make sure everyone got him....then went to grab his lunch. After getting his lunch he went inside, ate, came back out, and signed MORE items for the waiting crowd and took more photos.
Spartacus star Liam McIntyre also stopped for fans. He at one point walked past the mass of people standing around Mr. Hamill and just had a look of interest and maybe a bit of admiration for the way the year old handled all of the attention.

The Flash shoots scenes in downtown Vancouver for tonights big crossover event with Arrow & Legends Of Tomorrow cast
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR EPISODE 208 OF "THE FLASH". This is the three show Crossover event episode with Arrow & Legends Of Tomorrow.
If you have not seen this episode and want to avoid possible spoilers, do not continue reading the post or viewing the photos.
As you are all aware by now, tonight The Flash will air the 1st half of a 2 part triple cross over episode with Arrow, and featuring cast from their upcoming combined spin-off Legends Of Tomorrow.
A few weeks ago, I caught them in downtown Vancouver shooting scenes for this very episode. On set this day was Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon from The Flash. Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen from Arrow. Along with Falk Hentschel and Ciara Renee as Carter Hall and Kendra Saunders.
There wasnt a lot to the scene that had the 5 of them together in it. They all just were walking along down a staircase. However, after Barry & Oliver part off from the scene, theres a scene where Carter & Kendra share a hug as Cisco awkwardly lurks around waiting for it to end. Then Carter leaves, leaving Cisco and Kendra alone. Cisco then presents Kendra with a pendant, and she eventually reaches out & kisses Cisco.... and thats it. That was the end of the scene there. After they wrapped there, My friends & I managed to get Ciara & Falk to sign some autographs, while a little fan got his photo with Carlos at his transportation vehicle. Grant was telling everyone he was quite sick that day, so he avoided interacting with anymore.
Later that evening, they filmed a scene at a location near the original location, with Grant, Stephen, Falk & Ciara. It was apparently on a roof top, but I never did find out for sure. After that, Stephen Amell came out and met a few fans there & chatted for a bit before heading off.

The Flash shoots stunt scenes for Tonights Episode with Grant Gustin and Malese Jow and their doubles.
The Flash shot some scenes in early September for tonights episode at BC Place Stadium (aka S.T.A.R. Labs exterior)
The 2014 Best New Program Winner in our yearly Best Of TV Awards (going on now thru January HERE) shot some stunt scenes that involved dropping a stunt person (and at times the actress from a lower height) down to the ground.
On set this particular night was Grant Gustin as The Flash and Malese Jow as Linda Park, along with their stunt doubles Cody Laudan & . Also on set was a man who the security made extra efforts to protect. I managed a glimpse of him once not in his oversized rain gear, but never was able to get a photo of him in time. It was Zoom.
I never saw any scenes that they did with Zoom. But there was plenty to see with a scene that consisted of Linda falling off the side of STAR Labs and The Flash catching her.
Below are a few pics of the scene, which were shot from quite a distance away, thus why they are so grainy/blurry. The public was kept about a block (and sometimes more) back) and at the bottom is a couple videos from a couple of the takes.
Malese Jow tweeted a close up photo of the scene today HERE

The Flash shoots scenes for an upcoming episode with Danielle Panabaker, Teddy Sears and a mystery woman.
The Flash shot scenes for an upcoming episode in Gastown a few weeks ago.
The first scene they shot was with newcomer Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick in a S.T.A.R. Labs van with Danielle Panabaker as Caitlyn Snow shooting a scene where the pair get pretty cozy.
There was then a scene with a mysterious woman shooting a scene where she was staring towards the van. When I tweeted about this woman, I got several replies stating its Kimiyo Hoshi, aka - Doctor Light. Even other more in the know sources on all things comic book related suggested it was her as well. So for now, till I hear differently, that is who I am suggesting it is.
The Flash season 2 is on now with episodes airing Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
The Flash shoots scenes for episode 203 with several cast including Grant Gustin and Wentworth Miller
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.
