The Flash was on location for season 7 shooting on Friday under neath the Cambie Bridge, just a couple blocks from where my last set report for The Flash came from.
On this night, they were filming a scene in a corner of a park that they had made to look more like a parking lot (which I find a little funny, in that you'd think they coulda just rented a parking lot to look like a parking lot).
The crew was being more active than usual at trying to minimize views for passer bys. It was in a busy residential area, and path way for bicyclists & people out for walks, as it was less than 100 metres from a creek that people often walk along in the city. As the night went on, it became pretty clear they were trying a little harder to try and block me. To be fair, I was probably the only one there through most of the night actually with any type of device larger than a cell phone.
The first scene I saw shot had Grant Gustin as The Flash doing a scene with a returning guest star from a few seasons ago. David Dastmalchian was back as Abra Kadabra. As Pursuit23 had stated 2 weeks earlier on twitter, David was back in Vancouver, and the timing of his arrival, and the mandatory 14 day quarantine just happened to line up with this episodes filming. The scene had The Flash laying on the ground at one point, before getting up, yelling "What have you done?" at Abra Kadabra before doing his patented lightning throw move. Whether or not he hits Abra Kadabra is unknown, as the way the production had the area covered only gave partial looks at the scene. A bit later they did a portion of the scene that I feel comes before that based on where Grant & David were standing, where Abra Kadabra seems to be using his wand to do something.
A bit later, they did a scene (that I only got to see a rehearsal for before I was asked to move from where I was) where a large person standing on stilts, and wearing a massive foam tube shaped hat (last season I called him "tall Abraham Lincoln" because of his hat in a post) on his head. I have only seen them use this set up 1 other time on set. Last season, to stand in for the shape of Bloodwork. When they are doing large CGI built creatures like that, they need a reference point for the actor to look for, so they usually get someone to wear something extra long on their head to give the actor that point. So he COULD possibly be another large character, but since I have not seen them use this specific design, right down to the costume he had on for any other characters, I FEEL it could be the return of Bloodwork.... but I do NOT know that to be a certainty.
In this scene, it simply had this massive character seemingly grabbing The Flash in some sort of bear hug move, before letting him go. It did not seem like a long scene. But the actor playing that character did seem to stick around for the later scene, but I could not see from the vantage point I finally had when filming started, if/how, he might have been used in the scene.
The final scenes of the night, had Cody Laudan (Grants stunt double) filling in as The Flash for scenes where Grants face and voice were not needed since the camera focused on Abra Kadabra. In early rehearsals, it seemed tall Abe Lincoln was behind Abra Kadabra by like 10-20 metres, but I never saw if during the actual filming of the scene he was still there. They had 1 other scene, that I dont really know what it was, as I saw no apparent action happening in it. But it had tall Abe and The Flash standing a couple feet apart, with The Flash on a pile of milk crates to be close to the height of tall Abe. The one last scene they shot for the night was again Cody doing a small stunt where he jumps off a pile of milk crates (no sign of Abe around for it), and lands in what appeared to be a bag of some type (it was flat on the ground, so it could have just been a mat, but it seemed to have more shape to it than that).
Right after that, they wrapped for the night. Before they left, I went and tried to get a couple of close up shots of some posts they had out there, because they had decorated them with some seemingly fake looking music posters. The band names I was able to make out were "Second Unit", and "Sickada". There were a couple more, but I didnt realize till I got him that the shots I got of them were not good. I also got 1 other photo of something, which I am not posting till I can find out if it is okay with someone else to post. No big spoiler, just an interesting observation. But I am going to wait till I hear back from someone first before I post that. It is a VERY rare occurrence on a Friday night to wrap early enough for me to be home by Midnight, as most Friday shoots often go till 2,3,4,5 AM.
There will be some video from this nights shoot to post in the next week or 2, so come back to find those then, or you can subscribe to my Youtube channel and get them there when they drop.
UPDATE: Decemeber 13, 2020 - Video from that nights shoot has now been added below.
The Flash season 7 will air Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. starting February 23, 2021.
