The Flash cast & crew filmed this past Thursday, into early Friday morning at Science World, in the far north east part of downtown Vancouver. This is for the season 9 finale, the series finale, and the Arrowverse finale. It is directed by Vanessa Parise. This is the same location that they used for the season 7 finale where Godspeed, Reverse Flash, and The Flash had that famous lightning light saber battle.
This time, a few more people would be on the set. Early in the day, I got there while they were still setting up. It was going to be cold that night, and I was hoping to get some photos of them rehearsing before it got too cold. Unfortunately, they didnt start rehearsing till it was plenty dark, and already cold. They started with some stunts, featuring the stunt double for Cobalt Blue out on the set. He went up to a car, and shoved it aggressively, which I assume set off the chain reaction that some may have seen in the explosion scene in this video on tiktok. I missed it, as I was across the street in a buddies car getting warm, but we could see it easily enough from the car, as the fireballs were all several feet high, clearing all the equipment that was between us & the set. After they did that explosion scene, there was a scene where someone went through a glass sign (the one I photographed in the daytime), then after cleaning up all that, they started shooting with cast. It was already late & cold by then, and I was only saved by bringing hand warmers with me, and a couple times sitting in a car. Without those, I would have left several hours earlier.
On set for this massive scene was several actors, and a couple stunt doubles. First off, people you might have expected to be around. Jessica Parker Kennedy as XS, Kayla Compton as Allegra Garcia, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Jon Cor as Chillblaine, aaaaand Danielle Panabaker as Khione. But they were not the only cast out there, there was a roster of speedster villains against them. Rick Cosnett was out there as Cobalt Blue, Teddy Sears was there as Zoom, and a bit of an unexpected shock was Tom Cavanagh back as Reverse Flash, as he had not been announced as being back, unlike the other two. With them were stunt doubles filling the suits of Savitar, and Godspeed. Also on set was Cody Laudan as The Flash. Oddly, Grant Gustin did not work all night (this is quite odd.. only other time I have seen that was one time when Grant got snowed in back east, and 1 other time on another show when an actor got too sick to work on short notice).
The scenes did not seem to have a lot in the way of action going on. It essentially had the 5 villains in a row, facing the 6 Team Flash members all standing in a row. It gave us a bit better look at Ceciles costume, which the first set I shot her at, didnt give me the impression the suit was blue, but now I could clearly see it is. Allegra might have had a suit as well, but couldnt be so certain. Khiones wardrobe was seemingly a more toned down old Frost costume, with a more modest look to it. Also, whether you like him or not, you have to give your full respect to Jon Cor as Chillblaine, he was out there SHIRTLESS with his jacket wide open, in below freezing conditions (the temperatures ranged from -1C to -7C on the night) for the scenes.
For the most part, the villains team seemed to have Cobalt Blue doing the majority of the dialogue, but it really was hard to be sure, as I was shooting all of it from about a football field away. On Team Flash, I never really got the impression anyone specific was controlling the dialogue there, but again, they had their backs to me for the entire scene.
During 1 break, we got to talk to Teddy Sears for a few minutes, while he signed autographs He said he was excited to be back, and thanked all the fans who campaigned for him to return, because he really wanted to come back, and kept checking in with them himself to see if they wanted him to come back, and only got the word about 2 weeks out from filming. I also chatted very briefly with Tom Cavanagh, and finally met Kayla Compton for the 1st time.
This MIGHT be the last location shoot the show ever has downtown. They did have another one the very next night, in a city 30 minutes away, that seemed to just be a lot of Godspeeds doing a stunt scene. As of right now, there are no more sets known yet. They only have a week of filming left to do, as they wrap on March 6, 2023.
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.

THIS POST IS FOR "THE FLASH" SEASON 3, EITHER EPISODE 309 OR 310. If you have not seen this episode & do not want to see or read possible spoilers, do not continue reading or viewing the photos below.
The Flash shot a scene in October in Victory Square that could be for episode 309 or 310 (I sort of forgot now which ep they were on). The scene is pretty epic in a lot of ways.... but, knowing how the show is, and considering 1 of the cast in the scene had just recently let it drop at a convention that she had recently read the script for an episode several weeks after this episode, its kind of 1 of those anti-climactic spoilers that will be ruined by a convenient writing switch to completely erase the impact of the scene.
In this particular scene, A stunt actor in a CGI motion capture suit that is supposed to be Savitar faces off with Grant Gustin as Barry Allen as The Flash. Savitar is holding Candice Patton as Iris West at the top of a staircase in Victory Square, while Barry stands at the bottom. Eventually Savitar make some motion that leaves the limp lifeless body of Iris West falling before Barry catches her as she falls. I know a few people asked on twitter about how I know he kills her. Well, plain & simple. Things I have seen and heard on set that night. Thats all I can say on it right now.
Obviously, as anyone knows. There is NO WAY the writers are killing off Iris West. In fact the actress said at a convention panel just days afterwards that she had already read the scripts for episode 14 which would imply shes still around (of course, whos to say shes not an Iris from a different Earth now.) Several things could be happening in this scene. It could be a dream. It could be a different earth. It could even be that she is actually killed and Barry has to do that unspeakable act of going and resetting time...... again. We will just have to wait & see how it unfolds.
Now this scene is unusual for several reasons.
First, no actual actor was on set for the part of Savitar, just a stunt stand in guy the first time.
Second, they shot this entire scene over again a few weeks later, but there was a slight difference in the fact other cast were also on set that were not around for the original scene that I shot in October.
Third, they DID have an actor on set as Savitar for the 2nd time they did this shoot, former Twilight star Daniel Cudmore was in the Savitar outfit.
Fourth, doing such a public scene for such a notable moment is rare.
As a fan on set that night told me when I told him what the scene was they were shooting, he replied "oh yeah, they do that in the comics". But even with that knowledge, I'm shocked they would shoot it in a public location (granted they tried to do it as late as possible & tried covering it up as much as possible.... the 1st time.).
Whether this is in the mid-season finale tomorrow night, or the mid-season premiere, I cant be too sure.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in The U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
