The Flash cast & crew filmed scenes on Monday & Tuesday in downtown Vancouver in an area they have been using quite frequently in the last couple years. Monday started with them filming inside the CBC Studio, which is a large TV & radio studio for Canada's National TV station, right in downtown Vancouver. This is the episode being directed by the show runner, Eric Wallace.
I learned a couple of details on this day beyond what I physically saw, I will get on to that later.
The days exterior scene had two returning characters on set filming. Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, was filming with Patrick Sabongui as David Singh. The setting seemed to be set in the past, maybe the 1980s, or 90s? Ads in the area including one for an older model computer, as well as ads for CC Jitters, and Big Belly Burger. As well, there was some older style cop cars there, with some older model civilian cars. On top of that, Joe was wearing a Police officer jacket, and Singhs hair looked different than it does these days.
The scene had them investigating a crime scene in the middle of the street, with Singh walking up to Joe, saying a couple things, and then walking away to talk to other officers. Then Joe walks over & grabs something that was being described as a "crystal" off the ground (looks similar to the one we see at the end of season 8), puts it in his pocket, then Singh comes over to him & talks to him again, with Joe storming off, as Singh looks back at him suspiciously. I never got a photo of Joe with the crystal, so I had to take a screen cap from my videos to show you what it looked like in the photos below. Despite it being in plain view in this pic, in the majority of takes, he puts it in his pocket before Singh comes over (this might have been just a rehearsal take).
Some of the photos I took over these two days, might look grainy/fuzzy, that is because I was shooting through a window in the library, as street angles were not always good. So if you see one that seems a little fuzzier, that might be why.
This was essentially all they filmed for the time I was there. I had planned on coming back for the evening shoot, but got there too late. The film notice said they were supposed to be there till 9, and I got there just after 7 to find they had just wrapped shortly before I got there. When I got a chance to look at my photos from that day, I was more upset I missed it, as I found a piece of info in my photos that if I had seen it in real time, I wouldnt have left the set.
On Tuesday, they were back in the same block. This time, two completely different returning guest stars were on the set, along with Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. John Wesley Shipp was on set as Henry Allen, with Michelle Harrison as Nora Allen.
The trio did a scene that had Henry & Nora walking together up the street. They then stopped at a CC Jitters kiosk, and grabbed a drink. They then were talking, when all of a sudden Barry is thrust into the area, falling into the middle of the street. The first while when I saw this scene being shot, I thought Barry got hit by a car, but after seeing more of it, from other angles, I now realize he got thrust TOWARDS the car, which stops just in front of him, after Henry runs out into the street & bangs on the hood of the car as it stops. Henry & Nora then run over to an onconscious Barry, and Nora gets on an old style flip phone, while Henry checks Barrys vitals.
After a while, Grant & John left set, and they brought in the stunt doubles for them, while Michelle stayed to do the dialogue part of her characters scene, while Grants double gets thrown across the concrete, and Johns double runs out in front of the car.
After that, they wrapped up that location & moved across the street. UNFORTUNATELY, like the first day, I misused my time, but in a different way this time.
They moved across the street to shoot a scene at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, which they renamed the Central City Theater for the scene. I know nothing of what happened in the scene, because I really thought I had more time, and was doing a live chat while they were filming, and when I was done with that, unfortunately was just after they had wrapped. I assumed they were going to come back, but they did not. All I know about the scene is Grant was there again, dressed as Barry.
There are two details I picked up while I was there on the first day by dumb luck. One is, a guest star that ALSO filmed on the Monday set, but unfortunately not while I was there, that is Rick Cosnett was working that day. I DO NOT KNOW the character he was playing, so dont get carried away with speculations. The other, is the episode title, which I found curious. "A New World: Part One".
There will be some video from scenes from this episode to post in the next few weeks, so come back to find those then, or you can subscribe to my Youtube channel and get them there when they drop. Some from the first part of the cross over is already up there. You can find ALL of The Flash videos I have shot since right back to the pilot episode HERE on Youtube.

The Flash season 9 will premiere February 8, 2023 on The CW.
So, while little is known yet about the 100th episode of The Flash besides the press release for it. The show did celebrate its 100th episode on Saturday night with a party at 1 of Vancouver's best known venues, the Commodore Ballroom.
It actually was a busy weekend for the Commodore hosting milestone events for The CW, as Supernatural had their party the night before for their 300th episode.
The event was a celebration of their accomplishment, along with a chance to give press people a few tidbits of info for the event.
The Flash cast in attendance included Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, Patrick Sabongui, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Chris Klein. Of course Jesse L Martin was noticeably missing, as he still is recuperating from surgery on a back issue.
But the cast of The Flash was not all that showed up, as all 4 Arrowverse shows were represented quite heavily at the party.
Arrow had Stephen Amell, Cassandra Amell, David Ramsey, Juliana Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez and Kirk Acevedo there.
Legends Of Tomorrow brought Brandon Routh, Courtney Ford, Jes Macallan, Tala Ashe, Adam Tsekhman and Ramona Young.
Supergirl was represented by Melissa Benoist, Katie McGrath, Nicole Maines, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Jesse Rath, and former cast member Chris Wood .
A handful of former guest stars were there, along with Elseworlds newcomer LaMonica Garrett.
Probably my favorite parts of the evening was a couple things.
First, the rent-a-goon "security" team they hired who clearly had never done a celebrity event in their life, and were over reacting to every single person coming in like they thought they were protecting President Obama or something..... and still failed at doing so. Not once, but on 3 different occasions early in the evening, they decided to get confrontational with me about being on a public sidewalk. As I told the first group "its going to be a long night for you" which they tried then telling me no one was going to sign autographs. They lost their will to live pretty quickly, and by the time the celebs were leaving, they weren't even bothering to acknowledge some of them with a half hearted "human chain" that they so intensely created for everyone on the way in, just adding to the annoyance of the celebs who did want to sign when they had to reach over outstretched arms holding hands with another outstretched arm. They were so poorly informed on how to act, and who they were there to "protect" that they were creating human chains for random crew members, and failing to do so when actual actors from the show were leaving. Candice Patton had no one but the people she left with protecting her. Same for Carlos Valdes. No moment more encapsulated the evening of incompetence than when they "protected" Hayes Robbins, the husband of The Flash star Danielle Panabaker, but not Danielle herself. All in all, not the best team. I wouldnt hire them to protect a pie from a child. For the record, the "no autographs" I was promised, was Juuuuuuuust a tad short of accurate. I got every single cast member of The Flash except for Jessica Parker Kennedy, Danielle Nicolet and Chris Klein. The last two, who I did not even have something for. I also got 6 of the other Arrowverse cast. In fact, not one single person that signed that I needed, did they end up stopping me from getting. Usually when a staff tells me I'm not getting anything, they at least succeed on preventing me from getting SOMEONE at some point. I cant recall a team ever failing at every single venture. It was quite something to behold.
Second, was the variety of crew, and also 1 actor, who joked that I should be inside, because as 1 of them put it "I think you have spent more time on the set than some of us". I have done several cast parties over the years, and for the most part, crew are always very welcoming to me at these events. It really repeats the point I try to make to people all the time when they think the crews hate us. While I am sure there are some, from every show (because when you have a group of 200+ people working on something.... not everyone is going to be happy about the same things), the vast majority dont have a problem with us, and understand we all have a job to do.
As for who hung with who? Obviously the interior of the party was a mystery to me. But as they arrived & left, MOST cast arrived & left on their own. But there were a couple exceptions.
Much of The Flash cast were in early, as they had press to do inside before the party. I know that for cast Grant, Hartley, Carlos and Danielle were the last to leave, all leaving around 11:45-11:55ish. While Candice was the first to leave much earlier, and Jessica a little while after.
The Arrow cast were some of the latest to arrive, with Stephen, being the first of the cast, and not till after 8. Rick and David arrived together, with Kirk very shortly after them, and Juliana shortly after him.
The Legends Of Tomorrow cast was a bit of a mystery to me. They seemed pretty scattered on when they arrived, and left. The only thing I do recall from their cast was Ramona Young was the last one to arrive.
For Supergirl, Melissa was the first to leave from any of the shows, even before some people had even got there. While Katie & Nicole seemed to leave with their guests together.
The Flash airs on The CW in the U.S. on Tuesdays. It shows the next day on Netflix in Canada and other countries. The 100th episode will air live on December 4, 2018.

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.
The Flash and Barry Allen/The Flash are up for this years May Madness tournament going on right now HERE
The Flash autographs can be found HERE
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
