“The Flash” series – Latest from TVLine
* Barry Allen will be introduced in Episodes 8 and 9 of Arrow Season 2 (opening Oct. 9), as a forensics scientist working for the Central City police department — “just an ordinary man,” said Kreisberg. “That’s how the audience will get to know him before life gets a little bit faster.” Barry will also appear in Episode 20, a formal backdoor pilot more focused on this new character (and possibly planting fun Easter eggs along the way).

Some of it will feel very familiar, and some will feel different.” All that said, Johns asserted, “He does need powers to be The Flash.” And as such, Kreisberg added, “Our characters will react to the extraordinary changes to their world in a realistic way. These ‘powers’ wont be treated as commonplace.”
