The Flash seemingly was impossible to find after episode 6 of this season..... till last couple weeks, when the show has been found downtown 3 times now in the last few weeks. This time, the cast & crew were in Harbour Green Park. This is a location thats been used a few times by The Flash, as well as other Arrowverse shows (most recently where Mary gets grabbed by the vine in Batwoman, and some of the Supergirl finale filming).
On this day, the crew were filming episode 8x15, directed by The Flash show runner Eric Wallace. They set up several glowing green rods in the park in a circle. The scene, which included Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in his Flash wardrobe, did a scene with a returning recurring character Christian Magby, as Deon Owens, aka Still Force. The scene has the pair doing a walk through the park. At one point, they both stop to turn and stare at a couple that walk by, before continuing on their walk. After the round a corner, they come to a bench, where a newspaper is sitting on it. Barry picks it up, takes a very quick glance at it before starting to put it back down.... then stops short of putting it back down, pulls it back up to his face and reads it more, and in more detail with Deon there beside him looking at it. He then puts the paper down, and him & Deon continue their walk before Deon stops him and they have a bit of a talk for a few moments. Then Barry pulls out a device, they both stare at it, before continuing on more. After that, they wrapped Christian, and had Grant do 1 or 2 quick takes of him standing up on a ledge so they could shoot him looking up at him while he held the newspaper, maybe to get the underside of the newspaper? Then he wrapped at that location, and the crew started to move out.
I know more than a few people have seen photos of the 1 newpaper headline about Zoom & Godspeed. The props person had 2 different papers in his pack. One with that headline, 1 about the STAR Labs explosion. I dont really know what one was on the bench for the scene, or if they alternated them. But the props person was carrying around both of them, suggesting they were both in use there.
During the day, unfortunately, this location was across the street from an ESL school, and they had not one, or even 2, but at least 4 that I saw, attempts by kids from the school trying to rush the set to meet Grant. Some got through, and unfortunately were rewarded for their ignorance. At one point over 20 kids tried getting onto the set, with only 6 or 8 of them succeeding before crew stopped the rest. It didnt just go to the invasion of the set. A group of 10-12 were hanging around Grants trailer, and when he came out to go to set one time, they asked him for a photo, he 2 or 3 times told them he cant that he was on his way to set, but they whined so much that he bit his lip, ran over to them to quickly do 1 group photo, then had to literally sprint to the set. I havent seen a set with so many issues like this in a few years. While I am sure some people will see it as "Grant is so nice to stop for them even when he knows they are being a problem", there is the other side where him accommodating them over & over again gives them, and their friends that didnt get a chance on that day, the impression that is acceptable, and will only do it again at future sets, as I said, its a commonly used area.
Later in the evening, the crew moved 4 or 5 blocks up the street for a night shoot. Unfortunately I was too wiped out from my day at the daytime shoot to wait it out, but it looked like it was going to have a stunt of someone falling, as there was a crane in the alley. There was also a trailer for XS (Nora West Allen, played by Jessica Parker Kennedy) at the set, along with a trailer Grant frequently uses (although earlier set he was using a different trailer). A little something about the spot they are filming..... it is the same spot where Flash & Pied Piper beat Godspeed in 6x18. With Godspeeds name on that newspaper from earlier in the days shoot, could this be a re-imagined version of this scene?
