***UPDATED FEBRUARY 16, 2023 WITH RE-SHOOT PHOTOS & DESCRIPTION AT THE BOTTOM***
The Flash cast & crew filmed scenes on Friday in Burnaby at Central Park. A place they have filmed multiple times this season, including just a few weeks earlier for this set.
On this day, they were doing a night shoot, with The Flash star Kayla Compton directing. I showed up far too earlier, but that did give me the chance to look around, and get an idea of what might be filmed that night. Early on I noticed right away they had a bunch of grave markers set up. I hastily shot as many as I could, hoping to get some cool sneak peak spoiler, but alas, none of the ones I shot in the park had any spoilery names on them. BUT, they did tell a different part of the story, this scene was going to be set in the future, as there were grave markers spanning several decades, all the way into the 2040s. If you dont know, TV set "grave markers" are made from styrofoam, which is of course light, and easy to carry. Unfortunately, this also makes them easy to knock over by any wind. On this day, we were under a severe wind advisory, as possible gusts of up to 90 KM/H were expected, and sure enough, the wind played havoc on the set. The wind knocked over a about 20% of their markers.They had small pegs in the ground to hold them in place, but they were no contest for the intense winds, so they started having to use larger sticks on the back, propping the markers up, to give it more support.
Unfortunately, I was TOO early, and had to kill a lot of time before the equipment trucks even started rolling in. When they finally did, I paid attention to all the cast trailers that came in as close as I could. I didnt know it yet, but this was going to be mostly wasted time. I saw the 1st trailers for cast members come in with the name "Allegra" & "Allegra stunts" on it, and then shortly after a trailer for "director" (and a name I didnt catch), which happens to also be the actress playing Allegra, so that was kinda odd to me. Things only got weirder, next ones said "Taylor" & "Aartz" on them, which are members of the Central City Citizen. The last trailer to come in had 2 names I wasnt expecting "Malcolm" & "Speed Force Nora". Shortly after the trailers came in, I walked around, and thats when I saw the uncovered tombstone of "Edward Thawne" on a small platform they had built in the parking lot that looked similar to the graveyard in the park, but more tighter for close up scenes. I then went back to the set in the park to see if I saw the same thing there. Unfortunately, that one was still covered.
I then was hanging around near the parking lot again, killing time. While I was hanging around, I noticed 1 crew member changing out the name tags on the trailers. The two CCC members names were switched out for "Producer" and "writer", which of course was not helpful for me. A few minutes later, he would return, and this time he changed out Malcolm and Speed Force Nora names to "Eddie" & "Korber" (the officer who gets like 1 line every 5 to 7 eps). All I can assume is the names on the trailers when they came in were from earlier in the day scenes at the studio, or yesterdays scenes at the studio. It is very common for trailers that dont house the main cast, to change out daily, I had just never seen it happen in real time, shortly before cast were about to show up. About half an hour later, I saw Rick Cosnett show up. He went into his trailer, and headed off to hair & make up. While he was gone doing that, someone showed up that headed into Korbers trailer (I didnt see if it was Stephanie Izsak for certain or not, but it was a woman, and they didnt immediately come back out, so I assume it was). Almost an hour later, Rick returned to his trailer from h&m, went inside for about 5 mins, before an AD knocked on his door to tell him they were ready for him and he came back out in Eddie attire & headed to the set that you see the photos from below.
The scene they shot while I was there was pretty hard to get all the details, because of how far away I had to be from the scene (even though its a public park, during filming, they do have this large area kinda cordoned off for them.). For rehearsals, I wasnt TOO far away, but there was so much crew there with their umbrellas all open (it was pouring rain at the time), I couldnt see much. What was absolutely clear, was Rick Cosnett was at a grave, digging it up in a furiously fast manner. After rehearsals, I moved to try and find a view not blocked by a sea of umbrellas, and thats where I got the shots from that little nook way off in the distance that I posted the photo of, to show you how far away it was. At one point, the camera pans upward to look from up high, directly down into the grave, where Rick would still be. What does he find in there? I dont know. There was no loud sounds, or items he dragged out of it. Just him digging into it.
The weather was cold, it had rained on & off all evening, and was now dark out, and the park is full of coyotes (as you can see from the 1 photo I posted below from earlier in the day. I saw at least 3 different ones while I was there). So I did something really rare for me, I quit this set at like 7 PM, even though I knew they would still be filming for another 6+ hours. But what I got while I was there, definitely has some theory video makers minds working overtime.
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.

On Feb 14, 2023, the cast & crew returned to the park to do another night of shooting the scene. Unfortunately, they were unable to finish their work at the previous set because of the weather, so they were back.
This time I managed to get a couple new details I didnt get the last time. First, I got a photo of the Eddie grave in the park, and not the one that was in the parking lots secondary scene, confirming these were in fact the same sets. From a filming aspect, the two details of note were, seeing Officer Korber pulling something that looks like a taser on Eddie, she then walks towards him & they have a talk. I picked up 1 other notable thing from this set, a very loud piece of audio from Eddie in the scene, where after Korber comes up to him, he exclaims in a loud shout "I AM EDDIE. I AM ALIVE. AND I NEED TO KNOW WHY". That was all I saw them film while I was there. But it adds more context to the scene that was not seen at the last set, so it warranted a rare update to one of my blog posts.
