Next week’s episode will center on Moira Queen’s trial, but the following week’s episode is entitled ‘The Scientist’, co-written by comic book scribe Geoff Johns, will depict forensic scientist Barry Allen who comes to Starling City on a case and becomes captivated with The Arrow, Oliver Queen’s vigilante alter ego. Check out the complete plot synopsis below:
BARRY ALLEN COMES TO STARLING CITY — A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy (Colton Haynes) for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea (Willa Holland) not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured. Michael Schultz directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (#208).
Gustin will appear as Barry Allen in two consecutive episodes (8 and 9 of the second season), before returning in episode 20, which will actually purportedly show Allen gaining his super powers. This episode will serve as the “back door pilot” for a possible Flash solo series.
So we still have two weeks before we witness the newest live action Barry Allen. Are you excited?
