It’s not quite the images we were hoping for, you know… seeing Barry Allen donning his red suit with yellow lightning bolt. But, it will have to do. In the first of two episodes in which Barry Allen A.K.A. The Flash  (played by Grant Gustin)  features, he assists Oliver and crew with a seemingly impossible robbery. Here’s our first look at The Flash in next Arrow episode:

Episode summary:

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.

Latest news from production company CW is that Flash will get its own pilot, as opposed to featuring again in episode 20 as a back-door type pilot to his own series.
