It’s All About Barry Allen In New ARROW Previews For ‘The Scientist’


barry allenThis week’s episode of Arrow will feature the debut of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. Plans have changed and Gustin will be making the transformation into the super speedster on his own show instead of episode 20 of Arrow, but Barry will still be popping up for a two episode stint alongside Oliver Queen. The CW has released a producer’s preview and the first clip from The Scientist. Barry Allen comes to Starling City to investigate a break-in at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Science Division. The case is similar to one Barry is very involved in back home in Central City. The cast of Arrow and even Geoff Johns have been praising Gustin as the ‘prefect‘ choice for the character. While we won’t get to see him in full until Wednesday night, we do get a pretty good look at him in the two previews below. What do you think about Gustin so far? Are you ready for him to take up the mantle of Flash?

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.
