This week's Season 2 episode of Arrow, "The Scientist", marks the debut of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash. The CW Network has released a producer's preview video featurette, where executive producer Andrew Kreisberg discusses the casting search they went through to find the right actor for this coveted role. Take a look at the video, which also includes footage from this new episode, airing Wednesday, December 4 at 8 PM ET on The CW Network.
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 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 takes a liking to Barry, which doesn't go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea 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.
