The Flash was shooting scenes for episode 522 Wednesday night and Thursday night in Granville Plaza. Oddly enough, a location they used for last years finale. This time however, they were calling it "Central City Plaza" and had a fake hotel sign out there.
The scene had Grant Gustin as The Flash, Carlos Valdes as Vibe, Danielle Panabaker as Killer Frost, Hartley Sawyer as Elongated Man, Jessica Parker Kennedy as XS and Candice Patton as Iris West Allen shooting a scene with 1 other vry notable cast member on set. Tom Cavanagh was also there, but this time, not as Sherloque Wells, but as long time recurring villain Reverse Flash.
Unlike the day before, when I showed up to a shoot for The Flash that lasted less than 2 hours, they used up every second they could this time, as the filming notices they have to hand out to businesses said they would film till 5:30 AM, and I can confirm that at almost 5 AM, a couple cast members were still there filming when I finally left. It is quite rare for an overnight shoot to use up every minute they can. Usually these notices say "5:30" but they are usually done by "3:00" (or some time frame around couple hours short of what they say they need).
Of course the big spoiler on this set was that Grant Gustin had his 3 dogs at the set...... okay, and I guess, the Reverse Flash at some point gets out and is causing havoc. I was unable to confirm if this scene is in current day, or in 2049. But with the entire hero squad, and their blogger friend there, I feel it was a current day scene.
The scene seemed to be splintered into parts, so I was really unable to really follow what all happens. All I can say is, the whole team lines up against Reverse Flash and lots of talking seems to take place. At one point they did a scene with just Flash & RF, and it seems like Flash AGAIN lets RF run away. But I cant say with certainty since like I said, the scene really seemed to be broken down into a lot of small parts that could play out in any random order on screen.
There are MANY MORE photos from this set, but I wanted to get a few up right away for everyone to start talking about. So check back in a day or 2 to see a few more.
I also have some photos from a daytime scene from the day before this shoot of Grant and Candice doing a scene, I will try to get to that this weekend. But obviously because of the importance of these scenes, I had to work on this one first.
UPDATED: APRIL 12, 2019 - 12:30 AM - An extra photo added from Twitter user @TheMysciraBound that I asked her to send me, because it was a bit more crisp & clear front shot than any I got of Reverse Flash (I believe for a stunt scene).
UPDATED: APRIL 16, 2019 - 7:45 PM - More photos added, from night 2 of filming at the bottom. Plus some details on the last night of filming.
The Flash returns to TV for the end of season run on The CW in the U.S. on Tuesday after a few weeks off with the episode that I shot a couple months ago HERE and a short video HERE.

Night 2 of shooting had much of the same..... except this time, there was the always present random smoke that The CW shows love to use so much. I think maybe 3 or 4 times in my life have I walked down a street or past an alley and seen as much steam/smoke coming out of it as these shows claim exists. Sometimes I find the smoky effect helps with photos, sometimes it hinders. On this night, I would say hinders. Especially when saddled with the fact I had to shoot from an extra 25 metres away this time.
All the same cast were on set, again, shooting scenes with all the heroes, and Iris, facing off against Thawne. I saw moments where Killer Frost, Vibe, and Elongated Man, all at different times, seemed to be trying to use their powers. I am not sure what the context was of them using them, but each of them at some point seem to be using their special skills in this battle.
At the end of the night, which was just a shade before 5:30 AM, the cast left. I chatted with Grant about his new hairdo while signed a few autographs for me, and he assured me it wont be on screen like that. He was going to be in his costume for the scenes after when he got the cut, so it was all good for continuity. So dont worry fans, Barry did not lose a fight with a razor. I chatted with Hartley and Jessica for a moment, and told both of them to enjoy their breaks, and they both thanked me for saying so. Of course, the big moment came when Carlos Valdes was leaving. I asked him again, as I did back during filming for episode 17, if he was coming back. This time, his answer was an emphatic "of course", and I said "ok, great, guess I'll see you next season" and he replied back "and I'll see YOU next season". So it sounds like you can count in Carlos for at least 1 more season on The Flash.
That was the end of season 5 of The Flash filming.
Enjoy these extra few (albeit quite grainy/fuzzy due to how far away I had to stand) photos from night #2 of filming.
