When Barry Allen — the man who will be the Flash — comes to “Arrow,” he doesn’t waste any time trying to learn more about the hooded vigilante. But the young man doesn’t know how close he is to the truth when he asks Felicity about the hero in “The Scientist.”

This turns out to be very uncomfortable for Felicity, as seen in this preview video clip for Wednesday’s (Dec. 4) episode.

The scene shown has Barry (Grant Gustin) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) working together to solve a crime committed at Queen Consolidated. But that’s not where Barry’s mind is — he’s in town as much to admire the vigilante as he is to do any crime-solving. If only he knew how close to the truth he is!

As of now, however, all he gets out of Felicity on the vigilante is that the hooded man is “green.”

Barry Allen will appear in the next two “Arrow” episodes, “The Scientist” and “Three Ghosts.” After that, fans may have to wait for a pilot episode for the proposed spinoff, “The Flash.” Based on videos like this, it will be worth the wait.

“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
