The Flash cast & crew finally poked their heads out from hiding, after almost 2 months of not getting seen downtown, to film a scene in the alley behind the place they use for O'Shaughnessy's exteriors. This was the 1st time seeing them out since the show got officially picked up for a 9th season.
It had been so long since I had seen the show on location, earlier in the week I took a rare trip out to their secondary studio to see if I could find out what was going on with this back half of the season. While out there, I did see 2 actors in full costume. Grant Gustin as The Flash, and Christian Magby as Deon Owens. I also saw trailers for 3 other characters there (well, their stunt doubles, but still same thing as far as characters go) 1 was for Eobard, 1 was for a character I wont say because I only saw a trailer, and thus cant confirm they are 100% back, and 1 for a character I would see 3 days later at the set that you will see in the report below.
On Friday, the crew & cast finally came back downtown. The production was smaller than most sets for this show, so it did not surprise me much when all I saw for cast trailers at the set was 1 trailer. It had space for 2 characters. One door had no label on it, and it turned out, it was for Grant. The other had a taped on label written in very fancy writing that said "Fast Track". That was the characters trailer for the stunt double I saw a few days earlier.
In the alley was a long, dialogue heavy scene being shot between Grant Gustin as The Flash and an actress (I have seen several users state its Kausar Mohammed, previously from The CW show "4400", but at this time I do not have 100% confirmation of it, but I do acknowledge the similarity is definitely strong enough that I assume those claims are right.) as Fast Track.
At first, finding an angle was tough. I first had tried to shoot it from an inroad alley that actually runs below it. But as you can see, the bars on the alley block off much of the look at the scene. In the end, this was the only part of the alley I was able to see any of the scene from though, and it consisted of the two speedsters standing in the alley having a prolonged discussion about something, before Barry tapping his head and zipping off, leaving Fast Track there for several more moments, before she too would speed off. At 1 point, a group of students from a nearby school were also in the alley, got Grants attention for a moment, and he gave them all a fist pump and a wave & such before going back to work. He seemed to be in a pretty good mood, of course with a brand new season 9 contract in his pocket, he has reason to celebrate.
A little later they did a slightly different scene that had them now squeezed in between a garbage bin & some pallets, having more of a conversation that I got lucky enough to see a very brief couple seconds of after a couple impatient citizens didnt want to wait for hold ups at the end of the street & led to several more deciding to go & the PAs eventually realizing they had lost the group & let everyone go. But I obviously didnt see enough of the scene to get a good idea of what it was about as they cut almost immediately after everyone was let go.
On set, I only heard them refer to the character as Fast Track, so I cant say if this is the Meena Dhawan version of the character, but based off the look & casting, and the fact Meena has been referenced before on a book Chester was holding in the past, it likely is.
