Grant Gustin on Arrow: First Look!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Arrow is set to feature on major return and one highly-anticipated debut.

On this week's Arrow Season 2 Episode 7, Seth Gabel will come back to deal some drugs in Starling City, causing some serious problems for Oliver and company along the way.

After taking a week off for Thanksgiving, meanwhile, the series will then return on December 4 with Arrow Season 2 Episode 8, an installment that will introduce Grant Gustin as Central City police scientist Barry Allen.

As previously reported, The CW is considering a spinoff based on Allen's alter-ego The Flash, although plans have changed a bit: instead of airing a backdoor pilot as part of this Arrow season, the network will film a standalone, traditional pilot to be considered for the 2014-2015 season.

In the meantime, Gustin will appear on Episode 8 and Episode 9 and here is your first look at the former Glee star as Allen:

How old is that guy, about 14? Totally believable as someone who would have to be a college graduate with a couple of years experience under their belt, NOT!

@ JB

How old are you? Grant is 23 and could be a "police scientist" which was later changed to forensic scientist. How old do you think the "squints" on Bones are?

What the hell is a police scientist?

@ fortyseven

So you don't watch any police procedurals like CSI and the innumerable others?

@ isoron

They're not called police scientists.

So this means that Flash is not happening, because they are hedging their bets. So sad! Was looking forward to the show.

Arrow Season 2 Episode 8 Quotes

Barry: I'm guessing you don't know how hard it is to break someone's neck.
Oliver: Hm? No. No idea.

Barry: Actually, it was only one guy. I'm sorry I'm late. My train was late. Actually, the second one. The first one I did miss, but that was my cab driver's fault. I have this great traffic app and he thought that he was right. But, I'm here now though.
Lance: Great, who the hell are you?
Oliver: And do your parents know that you're here?
Barry: I'm Barry Allen.
