The upcoming episode features a debut for actor Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, who later becomes The Flash.
Read the official synopsis for Arrow Season 2, Episode 8 “The Scientist” below;
“A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sina’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured.”
The next episode of “Arrow” airs Wednesday November 27th on The CW at 8 PM ET/PT.
