Grant Gustin’s First Episode of Arrow: Glee Co-stars React
Tonight, Grant Gustin made his debut on The CW’s Arrow as Barry Allen: an enthusiastic, unassuming tech geek who will soon become the familiar red spandex-wearing superhero known as The Flash.
The actor, who Glee fans loved to hate as scheming Warbler Sebastian, plays the exact opposite of a villain. His Arrow character is nerdy, awkward, and totally adorable. He’s clearly smitten with Arrow’s resident techie, Felicity Smoak, and their awkward flirting is just about our favorite thing. So it’s official: We ship them already.
Grant gets two more episodes of Arrow this season — that’s two more chances to man up and just kiss Felicity already — then it’s off to his very own show. The CW is filming a standalone Flash pilot, and if it gets picked up, Grant will officially be the star of his own CW superhero series.
