The Singularity will bring about the break up (perhaps temporarily) of Team Flash. Barry struggles with the aftermath of the event and wants to protect those he cares about which turns him into a lone wolf.

BuddyTV caught up with Grant Gustin during San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2015 to discuss Barry’s state of mind as The Flash Season 2 picks up, Gustin’s most emotional scene, The Flash’s new costume and more.

Check out the video interview and highlights.

Highlights from the interview

  • Barry is having trouble dealing with the acclaim and love from the city for being a hero, because he doesn’t feel like a hero.
  • The show will cover pieces of what happened with the Singularity and how it affected all of the characters. 
  • Barry knows that Eddie is the real hero for stopping Wells on that day and it weighs on Barry that the Flash is getting the credit. It’s not fun or easy for Barry. That’s one of the harder things he’s dealing with.
  • Barry doesn’t want to work with anyone because he believes he jeopardizes them, so he’s a lone wolf.
  • The most emotional scene Gustin filmed was the one with Nora. He thought it was perfectly crafted. He was a mess when he read it and gets affected thinking about it. 
  • On the Barry-Nora scene: “It really rocked me after shooting that scene. When I went home that night … I was still just sobbing in the shower after that day. I was very emotional after that scene for days.”
  • Gustin discusses an Easter Egg from Season 1 that could turn into more.
  • Gustin hopes there’s more karaoke in Barry’s future. He liked the fun of Season 1 Episode 12 and he’d like to have more of that. Season 2 starts very heavy and emotional.
  • Gustin hoped they would do time travel and was surprised it happened in Season 1.
  • The Flash will have a new costume with a white emblem in Season 2. So far over the first few days of filming, Gustin has worn the costume with the red emblem 

The Flash Season 2 premieres Tuesday, October 7 at 8pm ET on the CW.
