The Flash shoots scenes for their season 3 finale with most of the main cast & some guest stars. MAJOR SPOILER
THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 3 FINALE OF THE FLASH. If you do not want to see or read any possible spoilers for this episode, please do not read on or view the photos below.
The Flash shot scenes for their 3rd season finale in a couple locations last week. First was a scene at Mountain View Cemetery in East Vancouver with every main cast member, and a couple guest stars. In fact the only notable member missing for the scene was Violett Beane. So, start your theorizing now on whos funeral they were there for.
At the cemetery we had Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West/Kid Flash), Candice Patton (Iris West), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon/Vibe), Tom Cavanagh (H.R. Wells/Harrison Wells), Tom Felton (Julian Dorn), John Wesley Shipp (Jay Garrick/The Flash), Jessica Camacho (Cindy Reynolds/Gypsy) & Anne Dudek (Tracy Brand)
So whos funeral is it? Well, if you take the time to look down the cast list, your first instinct would be to assume Jessie Quick, since Violett Beane is not on set. A smaller possibility could be Cecile, Joes love interest since Danielle Nicolet is also not there & it would seem more probable to kill off a secondary characters love interest than 1 of the iconic speedsters. But the answer isnt as clear as that theory would suggest. The one thing we all know about The Flash universe, and I have seen almost no one talk about is, the infinite versions of each others characters there are. We've seen Tom Cavanagh play 5 different versions of himself already.... so when I finally tell you whos funeral they were all at, you'll go "ohh of course... I forgot about the multiple versions of each other.".
So yes, the funeral is for a character played by someone that is also at the funeral. Thats the first thing we all need to know before I go any further. So you can cross Jessie Quick & Cecile off your list. Now its reasonable to assume that the crew didnt get together for a tear filled funeral to mourn a 2nd version of Anne Dudeks character since we barely know her 1st version. You know what, I could go on for an hour telling you why it could/couldnt be each other. Its for H.R. Wells. The version of Wells we see in the photos is Harrison (E2) "Harry" Wells, Jessies father, version of Wells. With the team all there I know it left a lot of people theorizing (I've read/watched some of these theories, and I have seen the more obvious assumptions like Iris West, or Joe West, to the more improbable ideas that its Barry Allen or even "Savitar".) about who is it and why and how etc. So you can start going around to all the different bloggers/vloggers you follow who had their sure fire ideas on who it could be and were wrong, and tell them they are wrong.... I know you want to. Its what the internet lives to do. Just remember when you do so, you were almost definitely wrong yourself.
There was very little of the scenes we could see and nothing we could hear. So piecing together what some of the photos during takes, which were few & far between is hard to decipher the context. I can tell you 80-90% of the photos in this post are from the cast AFTER the scenes were cut, as the vast majority of the scene took place behind two massive low lying trees (convenient, or intentionally planned). The one part we do see is Barry consoling Cisco. Theres also a scene were we see Barry, Cisco and I believe someone else (not entirely sure anymore) over at a different tree talking with Caitlin. At the end of their talk, Caitlin walks away from them thru the graveyard.
In between takes, many of the cast were in pretty great moods on the rare sunny day Vancouver has had of late. Tom Felton walked around playing his guitar from time to time, and even let Mr. Cavanagh use it for a bit. Danielle Panabaker seemed to either be skipping thru, or maybe trying not to step, on the gravestones after one of her takes, of course theres the post I tweeted with Carlos Valdes seemingly trying to lift up the dead weight of Grant Gustin in 1 moment. For the most part, the cast seemed to be 1 big happy group. With more or less everyone, including newcomer Anne Dudek, seemingly walking to & from set with other cast chatting.
The why & the how, is a bit less clear... although I had my own theories on it. But I wont go into that, because I dont do theory posts here very often/ever.
This set was pretty rare by The Flash standards, as most of the time a location shoot has 1-3 characters on set. With 10 (9 regulars/recurrings & Anne Dudek) this was easily the largest single day of cast on set I can recall. So no shock, it was also the best for meeting the cast. with the exception of Anne Dudek (who no one but me even knew), Jesse L Martin & Candice Patton, everyone in the cast signed autographs &/or took photos with people at some point throughout the day.
A later shoot, which many of you found on youtube saw that same cast shooting a scene, minus Danielle. I will have a post on that coming up soon.... but for now, here is the daytime shoot photos.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
