The Flash Pilot Images Episode 4 to Feature Felicity Smoak The Flash Pilot Images; Episode 4 to Feature Felicity Smoak

With less than a week left until The CW premieres the pilot of The Flash at San Diego Comic-Con, even those who are unable to attend should have a pretty good handle on the first episode as well as much of the first season. Between the extended first trailer, the many featurettes, and the numerous casting announcements – including Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) as Leonard Snart a.k.a. Captain Cold and Robbie Amell (The Tomorrow People) as FirestormThe Flash creators are painting a clear picture of their upcoming series for fans through the marketing.

Now, so close to the SDCC premiere, some new images from The Flash pilot have surfaced online along with bigger versions of previously released stills. Additionally, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg gave a concrete answer as to when Arrow’s Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) would appear on The Flash.

CBM has reported that episode 4, titled “Going Rogue,” will feature Smoak as well as introduce Miller’s Leonard Snart/Captain Cold. Kreisberg said Smoak will act as a type of mentor to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and his own team: Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), and Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh).

Read Kreisberg’s full quote:

It’s an episode where Barry’s beginning to question his teammates, and Felicity coming along is not just to reconnect with him; it actually serves a grander purpose, which is that Felicity is somebody who knows how difficult it is to have teammates who are fighting crime. So, she’s there to offer some sage advice, both to Barry and to to Caitlin, Cisco, and Wells. So we’re really excited.

Episode 4 will be the first crossover between The Flash and Arrow (not including Arrow’s pep talk with Flash in the pilot), but another will follow in episode 8, which will be a special 2-hour event. Although these crossover episodes between The CW’s two DC-based superhero series indicate that the network – as well as Kreisberg and fellow executive producer Greg Berlanti – aren’t shy about using established characters to help kick-start The Flash, the casting of so many new characters should give hope to fans that want to see Allen fighting super-powered villains on his own.

Whether viewers are hoping for a cohesively shared universe between Arrow and The Flash or that the two series will remain as separate as possible, it appears Berlanti and Kresiberg are hoping to strike the right balance between crossovers and standalone story arcs. Besides, there’s only so much crossover opportunity when the shows take place in their own distinct cities.

In addition to the new information about Smoak’s appearance in The Flash, CBM also released three new images from the pilot episode as well as two high definition stills. Check them out below:

These images feature the core cast of The Flash: Gustin, Panabaker, Valdes, Cavanagh, Candice Patton (who plays Iris West), and Jesse L. Martin (Detective Joe West). Unfortunately, any of these stills depict scenes from the trailer and offer little new insight into the pilot. However, plenty of new information about the first episode will surface after it’s screened to the public during SDCC.

  1. The pilot was pretty good. Love the cross overs. Cant wait for October

    The best easter-egg for me was seeing the gorilla-cage half-broken there. The Flash took a very Ishiro Honda-esque approach to Central City, in the sense that the entire city is affected by this instrument of science, effectively showing us the horrors of science. I bet if this was set in the 1950s when Flash was released, they’d have shown a Nuclear fall-out instead. It’s thematically very close to the source material, which is something I love. Most non-Flash readers often place him as a typical Spider-Man esque superhero, that he’s always constantly battling one supervillain after another in a cartoon-reality of good vs. evil but that was Wally West Flash. The Barry Allen Flash was ALWAYS dominated by the crazy SF worlds he visited, if anything it was closer to the Matrix or Inception, always with multiple realities and timelines and the hoopla of good old fashioned SF. The Planet of the Apes-themed Gorilla Grodd is no different, and I think that even if they do tackle it with a low-budget costume, if it’s anything like Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes, then it’ll by all means look just as menacing. Bring on Grodd!

  3. Make the costume more red like the banner we keep seeing.

  4. I cannot wait to see THE FLASH when it comes out this fall ? Barry Allen is both a Police Officer and a Scientist who was struck by lightning at the chemical lab, while he was investigating. When I watch the Original FLASH series that came out in the 90′s ? It had a lot of Special Effects that John Wesley Shipp played “The Fastest Man Alive” who gained Supernatural abilities to run faster than a speeding car. See He can chase the Bad Guys and Put ‘em in Jail, a lot better than what Police Officers may do. Barry Allen, is a hero running in the race of time.

    • The pilot leaked online a while back. You can torrent it from piratebay.

      • He could but that’s not where I saw it and honestly, I encourage people to wait because seeing it early and then waiting until October for the rest is horrible.

        Looking forward to the crossover episodes (episode 8 of both The Flash and Arrow). If it goes well, it opens up more possibilities for crossovers, especially if they have more TV shows that tie into the world depicted in these two shows.

  5. I’m all for an Arrow and the Flash crossover episode but let’s not forget that the Arrow universe revolves around a much ‘grounded-to-reality’ cast of villains, unlike the Flash. So if our two heroes are pitted against a super-powered baddie, I wanted be surprised if said episode gets a lukewarm reception from the viewers. But, I maybe wrong.
    Anyway, who do you think is a formidable villain tough enough to bring ‘the Hood’ and ‘the Flash’ together?

    • I don’t know but one of Flash’s villains, Captain Boomerang, is part of the Suicide Squad, which was featured already in Arrow, maybe the Hive.

  6. Grant Gustin does a GREAT job as Barry Allen/The Flash and the inclusion of John Wesley Shipp was the icing on the cake…Great pilot, BTW.
