The Flash was on location for episode 18 of the 6th season in downtown Vancouver around the same location they had the final battle with Bloodwork for the end of the first half of season 6. It was a busy area for filming last night, as Batwoman was filming quite literally on the next block over. But I spent my time at The Flash, and good thing I did.
Apologies in advance for some less than great photos. It was a perfect storm of things not going my way last night. Besides the typical Vancouver rain that I usually am used to, it was also pretty windy at times, I also was trying to work through that with my worst umbrella, as I have lost, or broken my other two better ones this season, and all that was amplified by the fact that TWICE in the night, I had my settings on my camera wrong. It was not a fun night all around.
Last night they started a scene being done that included a couple stunt scenes first, with Grant Gustin and his stunt double Cody Laudan as The Flash in a battled versus........
Yes, you heard that right.
There were a couple scenes. First, one where they dropped a stuntman in the Godspeed outfit form several floors up onto a vehicle. A fan actually caught the rehearsal for this stunt earlier in the day here. After that Cody came out to do a scene where The Flash got thrown into a van. There was then a scene where Godspeed seems to be looking down at The Flash on the ground, and might be kneeling down towards him, when The Flash zips out of there.
Lots of questions to be asked & answered from this reveal. Is this the actual Godspeed? is it another knock off like he battled at the start of the season? Is Godspeed part of Black Hole?
However, Godspeed was not the only returnee last night. After Godspeeds first set of scenes, he left, and someone (I never was able to confirm if it was the same person, my vision isnt the best... if anyone else can confirm, or deny, or identify the person, please comment with that & I will update it) came in to do scenes dressed in a cloack, with gauntlets that glow green..... sound familiar? Pied Piper seems to be back. Oh, and he is helping The Flash.
The pair did some scenes where they appear to be fighting Godspeed, as they both look up. At one point you hear someone yell out for The Flash, whether it was a crew member calling out a mark to Grant, or Piper asking him to help him, or to tell him to do something specific, I couldnt hear, all I heard was Flashs name get called out. A bit later, they did a scene where they slowly encroach on the vehicle Godspeed fell on. They get closer and Godspeed is laying flat out on the top of the crumpled vehicle.
After that scene, they moved into the street. It was pouring rain, windy, and the only angle I had to see the scene was quite literally from just a bit under 2 blocks away thru traffic going along a major road, and all the crew & prop vehicles, so I only stayed for 3 or 4 takes of this scene. The scene SEEMED to have Godspeed grabbing a random person (if it is someone, I cant tell) while others run around in a panick. There also seemed to be a guy standing beside him at the start of the scene in a beige jacket wearing what appears to be sunglasses, which would be a bit odd in the middle of the night. Not sure if he is someone, or just a random crew/background person there. I know Grant went to set for this scene, so The Flash is in the scene..... somewhere, but I had a very limited window of space to view any of the scene which was frankly massive, so it was just luck that the part I could see had Godspeed in it. At about 3 AM, I decided I had enough of this, and went home. They were scheduled to film there for a couple more hours. So who knows what more might have gone on.
Lastly, I just have to laugh at the Central City downtown map that doesnt actually have any street names, or the names of hotels etc. Just expects people to know what the street names are, and which hotel is which etc...... also, CC has several downtown Gas Stations..... while Vancouver itself only has ONE lol. There also was a van there for "Central City Crossover Comix & Collectibles" that seems to be owned by Barney Sands.... who is a character in the comics, as a neighbour of Barry as a kid.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S.
