In the clip of The Flash, The Flash was fighting some guy. He won, obviously. But the bad guy said that he knew a big secret. Gustin loves the costume and they made it more and more comfortable. He feels like a real superhero. It’s 10 pounds lighter than when they shot the pilot and he can bend his knees more. It’s a softer material. Gustin’s mom was in the audience too.

The Flash has already been picked up for season two. William Shatner’s a huge fan. He live tweets the show and Gustin retweeted his tweet about him. He probably reminds him of him when he started on Star Trek. That’s awesome.

Tom Cavanaugh plays Dr. Harrison Wells. You can’t figure him out. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? It seems like he’s a bad guy, but there’s more to come. The Flash airs on Tuesdays on The CW.
