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.


He looks like Tommy minus 10 years. really can not wait for this to air.
