Grant Gustin on Arrow: First Look!

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:

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.
